Active Speker with USB, BT and Digital Inputs
For those of you who have followed the progress of AktiMate since day 1, this speaker is similar in size to the original AktiMate Maxi, although the features and performance are very different.
This active speaker system is based around the latest Bluetooth technology - hence the choice of name for this model.
Bluetooth is just one of a number of possible options when it comes to your choice of the way you like to enjoy your home entertainment. The array of inputs and outputs caters for just about everything you might want in a simple, easy to connect, easy to control way.
With 2 x RCA plus a 3.5mm stereo jack input, the Blue also offers USB (for PC use only) plus optical and coaxial digital inputs. It has RCA out plus a sub out.
Physically this speaker is the same size as the former AktiMate Maxi 320 x 210 x 260 mm.
Like its predecessor it has a Class AB amplifier in the active speaker with a power output of 60 W into its own 4 Ohm speaker load. It has a 165 mm mid/bass speaker with an offset 25mm soft dome tweeter - the speakers being developed specifically for AktiMate.
It continues to be available in a choice of familiar AktiMate high gloss options - black, red or white and is the first of our range of speakers to no longer have a concealed iPod dock.
The remote, which we designed specifically for the AktiMate Blue has independent controls relevant to every function. We have avoided symbols for the inputs, opting instead for easy to read text.
Fitting comfortably in the palm of your hand, our aim was to make it so simple to use that it rates as one of the most user friendly around.
We also made sure that if you were to lose the remote, all functions are readily accessible via the control knob on the front of the speaker.
In the short time it has been around there has been a lot written about the AktiMate Blue. In Australia it received a prestigeous ‘Systems Solution Category’ award within weeks of its first release from Sound & Image magazine.
What Hi Fi Magazine (published in the UK) speaks of the Blue as ‘a great sounding alternative to traditional hi fi.’
The Blue can be the heart and soul of any home entertainment system..… it boasts a true and tested hi-fi pedigree with everything neatly packaged into just one pair of active loudspeakers. And to make life even easier, everything you need to connect and be up and running in 5 minutes is right there in the box.
