Bluetooth speakers are all the rage at the moment, but of course, most of the offerings on the market are self-contained, with stereo drivers housed in one box. That, of course, makes them pretty limited in terms of imaging and range. Not a problem if you’re a couple of feet away, of course, but if you want a more flexible sound system without giving up the advantages of Bluetooth wireless connectivity, you’re probably in the market for something more like Grace Digital’s new GDI-BTSP201 Bluetooth Bookshelf Speakers.
With a frequency response of 50 Hz to 20,000 Hz and a gorgeous leatherette covered case available in your choice of black, white, or red, the Grace Digital Bluetooth Bookshelf speaker is a little hottie in more ways than one, especially given its price ($249 retail, although a pair can be had for less than $200 on Amazon).
Add in Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity with aptX, SBC, and AAC codec support to cover a broad range of Bluetooth devices, and you’ve got a heck of a good deal. And if you’d rather plug in, the speaker’s also feature an RCA input, along with a USB port that can be used to charge your portable devices. And although you’ll probably find it easier to play, pause, skip tracks, rewind, and change volume via your phone, all of those functions can also be controlled via buttons on top of the speaker.
The Grace Digital GDI-BTSP201 Bluetooth Bookshelf Speaker is available now at the company’s website or, again, via Amazon for a bit less scratch.
