3 foot tall cylindrical wireless speaker packs in 200-watts of amplification and a lot of tech
Studio 19 announced the release of the Solo E600X-EQ, a three-foot tall 360-degree portable and wireless speaker with 200-watts of peak power. The $600 precision-engineered speaker is designed to deliver an immersive auditory experience with an exceptionally detailed and nuanced sound quality throughout the room. It’s built using Advanced Wave Sound Method (AWSM) with Adaptive Intelligence Audio, patented Dual Pressure Air Compression (DPAC) super-bass technology and Enhanced 360° Optimized Sound.
Beautifully designed in powder-coated stainless steel (available in Space Grey, Gold or Charcoal Black colors), the Solo uses state-of-the-art speaker drivers with a maximum output up to 200 watts, so it’s loud enough to handle virtually any occasion with no compromise in quality.
The Solo is one of the world’s first “enhanced degree” patented 3D-effect portable Hi-Fi speakers. Unlike conventional 360° sound, the Solo’s Enhanced 360° Optimized Sound flows not only left to right but top to bottom. This creates an omni-directional spread with wide, directional waves that circulate throughout a room, giving the authentic impression of a multi-speaker environment from a single speaker.
The Solo features Studio 19’s proprietary Advanced Wave Sound Method (AWSM) with Adaptive Intelligence Audio. The company says it’s pronounced “awesome” … and claims it is. Further adding, it accomplishes what many audio engineers considered to be unachievable: It protects digital audio before compression, preventing it from being degraded during compression encoding, which can strip an audio file or stream of as much as 90% of its detail, depth and intricacy. It restores a sound file to its original pre-compression state after decoding. AWSM significantly improves the efficiency of audio processing in real time.
Unlike other codecs (even high-resolution ones), AWSM doesn’t have to be on both sides of the process to work. That means it’s backward compatible. It can improve the quality of existing third-party content as its coming out of the Solo speaker. At the same time, AWSM allows digital audio to be compressed up to 98 percent more, with no loss of fidelity.
The Solo incorporates Studio 19’s breakthrough, patented DPAC technology to create a bass sound that matches or surpasses a conventional subwoofer. The innovative driver configuration, combined with air pressure, delivers a full-range sound with deep low-end frequencies and astonishing clarity of sound in an ultra-compact size.
Cutting edge digital processing power means that the Solo heightens the essential characteristics of the audio you listen too, resulting in a rich, dynamic sound that brings your music to life.
The Solo EQ has a built-in professional EQ Graphic Equalizer, a digital sound enhancement not normally found in portable speakers, allowing you to fine tune your music even further. Add more bass, mid-range or treble to get exactly the sound you want.
With the Solo, connectivity and play is a breeze. Choose between Bluetooth, WiFi, Auxiliary, or HDMI modes and connect your audio source with ease. The WiFi with Multi-Room App allows you to connect more than one Solo for different rooms in your house … for a multi-room sound experience. Play different songs in different rooms, synch up audio in multiple rooms, or blast the same song throughout the entire house.
Ready to go anywhere you want, the Solo is powered by an 8,800mAh built-in battery lasting up to 8 hours, indoors or outdoors. When it does run out of power, simply recharge it with a powerbank or connect to the main power (via a type-C cable) for faster charging.
