Hi-fi?s Holy Grail ? audiophile quality speakers minus wires ? is here with the Australian release of the CD3500 wireless hi-fi speakers by Canton, Germany?s top selling speaker brand.
The slim, modern design, CD3500 ?towers? each contain their own in-built 200 watt RMS digital amplifier and receive their music signal from a supplied digital transmitter. Versatile connectivity means the 3500?s can not only be connected to your main sound system but you can in fact run these mighty speakers directly from a plasma TV, i-Pod, DVD player or multi-room home automation system/music server.
The transmitter can be placed up to 25 metres away from the towers, and will transmit perfect hi-fi sound through walls, floors and ceilings.
Operated by remote control, the CD3500 is a full range speaker so a subwoofer isn?t required. However, subwoofers can be connected to the integrated jacks if desired to give a full home theatre experience.
A common situation in many homes would be to place your ipod next to the transmitter inside the house, and transmit perfect hi-fi sound through closed doors and windows, to the outside pool or entertaining area. Or alternatively, place the towers in another entertaining room in the house.
The only requirement is a standard power point for each speaker. There are no speaker cables or wires.
The CD3500 series is available in brushed aluminium silver for $5,099 a pair and sleek black piano finish for $5,799, including the transmitter, from audio specialists.
