Today, not everybody wants cables connecting their audiophile speakers and thankfully there are all sorts of speakers today that represent a well-designed, all-in-one, enclosed audiophile system solutions.
Cost-wise, these audiophile grade Bluetooth speaker system are much less than a traditional, small audiophile system. Bluetooth speaker systems are all-in-one solutions when an a traditional audiophile system sold by an audiophile dealer might include many different components. Those components include on the front-end an audiophile turntable and/or an audiophile grade Compact Disc Player or music streamer. Smaller systems often use an integrated amp which is the combination of a stereo preamp and an audiophile grade amp all in one box. Then the traditional audiophile system has any number of speaker options including often bookshelf speakers and an audiophile subwoofer. Other systems with a little bit more budget might use audiophile grade loudspeakers but they are even more expensive and larger in size.
What Are Some Of The Best Audiophile Grade Bluetooth Speakers on the Market Today?
Naim Audio Mu-So Generation II – Priced at under $1,400 is a gorgeous design statement that can go into any room and play wonderful sound without taking up too much space. People benefit from their intuitive App that can run on an iPhone. Audiophiles love the trickle-down technology that comes from Naim’s speaker “brother” from France Focal. Many people think the Focal Sopra No. 2 is the best speaker for the money in the world of very high end speakers. Naim Electronics, from Scotland, are also very expensive and for 1/20 of the price of a Naim-Focal system you can a good amount of the big system’s performance for a fraction of the price.
Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin – This $799 Bluetooth speaker gives you a chance to get the type of performance that you might expect from speakers such as the Bowers & Wilkins 804 D4 or the Bowers & Wilkins 702 Signature Speakers or the Bowers & Wilkins 603 S2 all for a fraction of the price. The Bluetooth speaker is easily upgradable via wireless, firmware updates. It streams audio from any number of sources. The B&W Zeppelin (which looks like an actual Zeppelin) can also play all of the music that you have stored on any number of your devices. Lastly, there is a matching (and very cool looking) subwoofer that matches with your Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin and adds a lot more, room-filling bass.
There are nearly countless audiophile grade Bluetooth speakers but they tend to me more like audiophile accessories than real audiophile speakers.
The value possible here with these wireless speakers is amazing. Are they as good sounding as even a modest audiophile system in a traditional configuration? No, but they provide a good percentage of the performance at a fraction of the price with the only cable that you need to worry about being the power chord. Pretty cool, right?
