A new benchmark
3-Dimensional-DesignMost products are designed to look nice from the front only. When designing the Consolette we kept in mind that we wanted to design a product that looks nice from any angle. The result is a beautiful 3-Dimensional-Design that has no side you would rather not look at.

Front PanelThe front panel is made out of a single piece of anodized aluminium - for a luxury touch and ultimate rigidity. It also eliminates vibrations that could harm the sensitive audio signals coming from inside the device.
Gyro WheelIn the 1970s we introduced our first FM tuner and it was equipped with an analog "Gyro Wheel" to finetune stations with. It was a heavy flywheel connected to a wire-construction inside the device. By turning the wheel you moved the wires. The result: the needle moved from left to right across the frequency band.
On the Consolette we implemented an electronic, multi functional Gyro Wheel for adjusting the volume, tuning through internet radio stations, skipping forward/backward and scrolling through the setup menu.
Wooden Back PlateA special execution highlight is the walnut wooden covered back. But it is not only premium looking: Walnut wood is known for best acoustical results.
The beauty of sound
Dual High-Perfomance Bass DriversTwo 4" bass drivers deliver a fast and deep bass for an engaging Hi-Fi sound. Altogether the combination of shape, materials and technique allows a full and warm bass reproduction. Click to explore the inside of the Consolette
Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR)Instead of using standard speaker cones we used special Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) drivers for the mid and high frequencies with an extended frequency response and a much wider directivity in comparison to conventional drivers. This way we could create an accurate sound stage and a better stereo imaging with little sweet spot sensitivity.
V-Shaped Acoustic ChamberThe back of the Consolette is V-Shaped which gives it its very distinguished look. Besides the outstanding appearance the shape eliminates standing waves inside the cabinet and creates a wider stereo image. In addition we have created maximum volume to allow a deeper bass reproduction.
Skills of perfection
Internet RadioBuilt-in internet radio offer a multitude of free internet radio stations via the Apps. Six stations can even be stored directly on the device. This way the favorite choice is always available, even when the smart phone is not around.
Wireless Music StreamingFrom any portable (smart) device that runs on Android or Windows – only thing to do: Installing the free App and connecting the device to the wireless home network. Streaming is also possible from any PC, Mac® or NAS (Network Attached Storage).
DockThis Consolette has been designed to dock any iPod, iPhone or iPad and has been certified to meet Apple performance standards.
Gold-plated analogue line inputThe top grade RCA terminals have a copper base with teflon isolation providing an audiophile extension for music enjoyment from any external analogue music source. The terminals are gold-plated which ensures durability and prevents erosion which could harm the sensitive audio signal.
Ethernet/WiFiTo enjoy wireless music streaming from your mobile device, listening to Internet Radio or browsing your network for available music you can wirelessly integrate the Consolette in your home Wi-Fi Network using NetLink or Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). For those who prefer a wired connection we also incorporated an Ethernet port.
USB PortThe USB port can be used to connect a USB memory drive or hard drive and play back the music stored on it.
Net LinkThe App offers you the easiest way to integrate the Consolette into your home Wi-Fi network: just dock your iOS device into the Consolette, press the NetLink button and follow the on-screen instructions. That's all.
OLED DisplayThe Consolette is equipped with a bright OLED display showing you the source, album information, volume indication or time. This display can also be used to scroll through the setup menu. In relation to a common display an OLED display is much brighter and utilizes a specially developed, large Font Type making the display readable even from a distance. Light intensity is adjustable as well to match personal needs.
Full System ControlBesides the Design aspect and the acoustic benefits the Consolette offers another exceptional advantage: user friendlyness.
Not only can the Consolette be controlled by the luxurous, aluminum remote control that comes along with it, but also with the Consolette App we specially developed for iOS and Android devices.
