Braun-Comeback – as all-in-one

The British manufacturer "Pure" is known for its DAB radios – now it has acquired a license to use the "Braun" brand and revives design elements of Braun loudspeakers. Inside, however, there is state-of-the-art technology.

Three models will be launched in October: the 70 cm wide "Leo 1" table-top loudspeaker (unit price 1200 euros), the almost 50 cm wide "Leo 2" (800 euros) and the square "Leo 3" (380 euros) with an edge length of just 17 cm. All three boxes have very flat cabinets, such as the big model LE 1 by Braun from the 50s, and the stainless steel feet of the two big Leos are also reminiscent of the design icon. Long-throw woofers, passive cones and DSP technology are supposed to provide rich bass despite the flat design. The speakers can be operated individually or as a stereo pair, are controlled via WLAN or Bluetooth or via analogue cable, understand WAV and FLAC (up to 24/96), MP3 and AAC and, thanks to Chromecast and Airplay 2, are also multiroom compatible. Built-in microphones even allow voice control via Google Assistant. The Leos are available with black or white aluminum finish and black fabric covering. They are distributed throughout Europe by Aqipa.
