Monitor Audio has expanded its Airstream family with a new Bluetooth speaker – and it’s quite a peach. The compact S150 is available in white or black finishes (pictured above) and can be table top mounted or on a wall via an optional ¼-inch UNC mounting kits. It utilises Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX for improved performance but also sports a 3.5mm stereo jack for local sources. Devices can also be charged via the USB input.

The S150 is constructed from a mineral-filled polymer, which promises superior rigidity, and sports four specialised drivers: a proprietary gold dome C-CAM tweeter plus dual 3-inch-CAM metal cone bass drivers and a rear-firing Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR). There’s a deceptively meaty 40w power plant onboard (2 x 15w devoted to bass, 10w to the tweeter), allied to a high resolution DAC with in-house designed DSP algorithms and audio tuning. The Airstream S150 will retail for £150.
