At a glance, the Raumfeld Stereo Cubes look to be nothing more than slightly-larger desktop speakers. You know, the kind you put on the side of your monitors for blasting the sound of whatever addictive game you spend your weekends playing. Except, they’re capable of so much more.
Billed as audiophile-grade audio gear, these wireless speakers come as two physically separate loudspeakers, with distinct left and right channels for producing true stereo sound. Even more impressively, they can stream lossless audio formats (FLAC, WAV) in their native form – a true rarity for wireless speakers of this size.
Each pair of Raumfeld Stereo Cubes is connected by a two-way coaxial system that’s adapted from high-end speakers, boasting highly-precise sound imaging and fine resolution. Sound comes courtesy of a 28mm fabric tweeter and 130mm midrange driver, with a large 5-inch woofer and a double bass reflex system providing a rich bass sound with a low end you don’t get on comparable hardware. A two-channel Class D amplifier supplies 80W to each speaker, with sophisticated bi-amping tech firing the tweeter and mid-bass driver separately to ensure a more detailed sound.
Features include onboard WiFi for streaming (no Bluetooth, though), multi-room support, and a wooden enclosure with brushed aluminum detailing. It comes with an accompanying app that integrates support for Spotify, Tidal, SoundCloud, TuneIn, and more (including Google Cast as soon as it’s released).
Available now, the Raumfeld Stereo Cubes are priced at $699.
