This week I’m checking out the AIO Multiroom system from Triangle. They are a French hi-fi manufacturer that makes some of the most beautiful speakers, and now they are bringing that same craftsmanship to multiroom speaker systems, something along the lines of Sonos or the new Bowers & Wilkins Formation system. AIO, unlike some of the other systems out there, handles high-resolution files up to 24/192, plus they also work with most of the major music streaming services like Qobuz, TIDAL, and Spotify. They will also play music from your NAS drive using DLNA.
Triangle sent out the beautiful (pics really don’t do it justice) AIO 3 Speaker which contains two 1-Inch Tweeters and two 3.9″ woofers contained in a wooden enclosure draped with Scandinavian Fabric and Brushed Aluminum. They also sent out the AIO C Music Streamer which allows you to stream music to your existing hi-fi system. Both can be controlled with the AIO app (iOS and Android) via a wi-fi connection. They also have an AIO installation amp coming soon that will power two in-wall speakers and stream to them. They sound really good so far…stay tuned for the review!

WOODEN CABINETLike traditional speakers, the AIO is made of a wooden enclosure: an excellent material in the domain of acoustics that offers the acoustical properties required in a high-quality speaker.
PREMIUM FINISHES Intended to be used daily, the AIO speaker is draped in an elegant fabric from the Scandinavian brand Gabriel, which is well known around the world for developing exclusive fabrics. The electronic components are placed in a box in brushed aluminum thus creating a contrast to enhance the speaker.
TRADITIONAL FILTERINGBenefiting from Triangle’s know-how, it includes a passive crossover to fine tune each driver thus offering acoustic consistency to the speaker.
