A Pantheone from down under
Thursday, October 1, 2020

Australian brand Pantheone Audio introduces Red Dot award winning Pantheone I (£2,199), a loudspeaker created to complement other art, sculptures and furniture within the home. Available in black or white, the resin speaker housing is created from a single mould, which is then hand polished to ensure nothing distracts from its curves. 

The Pantheone I streams high-resolution audio with internal subwoofers, two midrange drivers and four tweeters, which allow the product to fill any room with a 360-degree sound. The Pantheone app (iOS and Android) allows users to control the system through their phones or tablets. This makes it simple for users to change songs and adjust sound from any room as well as enjoy other features including sleep mode and multi-room player, which allows up to eight Pantheone I devices to be paired. Its built-in Alexa functionality also lets users manage the system and their smart home automation through voice commands. Users can also easily access streaming services such as Spotify, Tidal, Pandora, or iTunes.
