The Core produces a huge stereo sound field. While most single speaker systems claim to be “room-filling,” they are unable to produce a realistic stereo effect. The Core utilizes advanced acoustic rendering technology to create the illusion of two widely-spaced speakers. The Core makes listening to music more fun for you and your friends. The built-in amplifiers are clean and powerful, providing plenty of power to fill your room with deep rich sound.
AN ACOUSTIC MARVEL
We have carefully chosen several cutting-edge technologies to create the Core’s phenomenal acoustic performance. It all starts with five custom-designed speaker drivers in three arrays along with a downward-firing woofer, driven by 120 Watts of digital power. Several digital signal processors bring out the best in any type of music you choose to play, while an ARM processing core intuitively works to keep the whole system synchronized.
To achieve its amazing sonic feats, the Core uses an Acoustic Holography technology to produce a stereo sound field that is astonishing in size and sound quality. This technique works by physically recreating sound in space – similar to a hologram – which is purer and sounds even better than traditional stereo or surround sound.
EVERY SPOT IS THE SWEET SPOT
In a traditional stereo set up, listeners need to sit between two speakers to hear a well-balanced stereo image. Audiophiles refer to that as the “sweet spot.” To eliminate the sweet spot, the Core uses an audio rendering technique called Wave Field Synthesis to produce a virtual acoustic scene. This acoustic image can be “viewed” from any position in the room and does not depend on the listener’s position.
Our Absolute Bass Technology (ABT) is a combination of electronics, software, and mechanical engineering working in unison to produce a low frequency performance unmatched for its size. The end result is a speaker that you can hold in your hand that makes real bass, the kind you can feel and not just hear. Connect any wired or wireless external subwoofer to the Core for over-the-top bass performance perfect for action movies and parties, or an action movie party. When connected to a subwoofer, the Core uses Dynamic Re-tuning Technology: it automatically ceases all the bass duties and concentrates on flawless, higher output midrange and high frequency reproduction.

With the touch of a button you can wirelessly connect up to eight Cores throughout your home. No router, Wi-Fi or special application is required. The Core creates its own 5 GHz dedicated music network. Each speaker can play a local source or receive music from one central unit.
The Core uses the finest Bluetooth quality to stream any format of music from your smart device, laptop or PC. Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) and aptX™ combine to bring out the best possible sound from your digital sources. And you won’t need a new application or passwords to learn. Just connect and enjoy! Use your phone or tablet as remote control for your sound system; it’s that easy. The Core supports “tap to pair” NFC and features a built-in USB port to charge your smart device when it is running low on battery.
SAY GOODNIGHT TO DROPOUTS
Other wireless speakers use less sensitive Class 2 Bluetooth receivers, which can create annoying dropouts. The Core features high power Class 1 Bluetooth receiver technology that minimizes dropouts and extends range, creating a stable, strong and glitch free connection.
BEAUTIFUL IN ANY SPACE
The Core is beautifully accented with a polished top and chrome base. Its bold yet simple beauty, compact size, minimal embellishments and lack of unsightly wires make the Core enviable in any space.
PLUG IT IN IF THAT'S YOUR THING
The Core features an Optical digital connector and an analog input so you can connect wired sound sources such as a CD player, turntable (with a phono preamp), video streaming device, PC or music server. High-resolution music fans will be happy to know that the Core can handle PCM streams up to 24 bit/192kHz for pristine sound. You'll be able to play a high-res digital file or vinyl record in one room and hear it in any other room that has a Core.
EVEN BIGGER HOME THEATER SOUND
Sound is just as important for movies as the images themselves. Plug in any video source such as a cable box, Apple TV or Roku into the Core and your TV, and you are ready to rock. With the Core you don’t need racks of equipment or miles of speaker wires to enjoy thrilling home theater audio performance.
