Looking for a sleek speaker with minimalist styling, a wallop of great sound and accessible price? The Sound Freaq Sound Platform might very well be what your bedroom’s been missing.
Measuring 11.8 x 6 x 5.9 inches, it’s small enough to find a comfy spot in a spare table somewhere in the vicinity. Despite the small size footprint, reviews of the thing seem unanimous: this is one feature-packed piece of tech with audio quality that even discerning home theater hipsters can appreciate. Oh yeah, it comes in red, too — making it a great prospect for a Valentine’s gift.
Like most standalone speaker systems, the Sound Platform has an onboard iPod dock, so you can slip your music player in and go about your business. There’s also a 3.5mm slot, in case you’re not the Apple-friendly variety. If you’d rather keep your smartphone in hand while streaming tunes to it, that’s fine, too, as the stage-like apparatus comes with built-in Bluetooth support. Just in case you’re tired of your song collection, there’s also an FM tuner with 20 presets.
A remote control with its own storage compartment is included, as well as a downloadable remote app for iOS devices. And just in case you’re wondering about the audio specs, the product page lists custom-engineered and Kevlar-reinforced drivers, an acoustically-tuned dual-port chamber, and a UQ3 spatial enhancement processor.
As one reviewer on Amazon succinctly put it, “audiophile quality and affordably priced” need not be mutually-exclusive qualities. The Sound Freaq Sound Platform is available now, priced at $199.99.
