Wharfedale has announced the arrival of DS-2 Bluetooth speakers, an improved version of the previous DS-1. The product has a compact size: 19 cm in height and 12 cm in width. The design uses rounded edges and a glossy lacquered finish in black or white. On the sides, we find inserts in synthetic leather.
The integrated master speaker features 30 watts (or 60 watts peak) of next-generation amplification, the aux input and volume and pairing controls. The sound expands through a 2cm tweeter silk dome and a 7.5cm mid-woofer with a woven polypropylene cone. On the back, there is a rear-firing port for helping low-frequency performance.
The connection source uses Bluetooth with aptX. Alternatively, it is possible to use the analog input on 3.5 mm jack, placed on the main speaker together with the buttons to manage the volume and pairing of Bluetooth devices.
The Wharfedale DS-2 speakers will arrive in March with a price tag of £130 – approximately$181.
