Connected Distribution has struck a distribution deal with Soundcast, US maker of high-end Bluetooth audio systems and wireless weather-resistant portable audio products. The San Diego brand specialises in lifestyle audio systems, for indoors or out, and will arrive in the Uk with the five strong VGX series. All VGX products are housed in rubberised weather resistant cases.

The VG1 (pictured above) is fully waterproof, and measures just 173mm. It features dual aluminium drivers and a weighted bass radiator. Two VG1 speakers can be synced together for dedicated stereo playback over Bluetooth, using Qualcomm TrueWireless Stereo (TWS) technology.

The step-up VG3 features two 1.5-inch full-range drivers and a long-throw 3-inch down-firing woofer. It also boasts a capacitive touch interface.

The VG5 features a long-throw, down-firing 6-inch woofer and two 3-inch full range drivers, while the largest model in the range, the VG7, uses a 7-inch long-throw woofer in a downward-firing configuration, with four 3-inch full-range drivers in a 360 degree array. Completing the line-up is the VGtx transmitter, used to bring Bluetooth audio to legacy audio systems.

Mike Bonnette, technical director of Connected Distribution, comments, “Never before have we been so impressed by the sound quality, ease of use, build and extensive feature set of Bluetooth speakers. They really do open up a whole world of outdoor and indoor entertainment options for consumers and installers alike.”
