Back in January, Buchardt Audio announced an Active counterpart to their ridiculously popular S400 bookshelf speaker called the A500. While that model is still only available for pre-order, it hasn’t stopped them from announcing a new Active model called the A700. It’s not only more powerful than the A500 mentioned above, but it also happens to be their first floorstanding model.
The A700 comes in three colors, Walnut, Black & White, and employs a lot of the modern design language that made the S400 so famous, like the tilt-back cabinet and large tweeter waveguide. It’s big and bold with no fewer than six drivers per speaker, including a 3/4″ tweeter and three six-inch drivers on the front, plus another two six-inch drivers on the rear.
There are also 4 x 150/330 watt RMS/Peak class D amps in each speaker, and when used in conjunction with Buchardt’s Hub + Remote, you gain access to a variety of streaming options like Chromecast, Airplay, Spotify Connect, DLNA UPnP and Bluetooth. Buchardt also has an app that provides control via iOS or Android devices.
The A700/Hub+Remote bundle is now available at a pre-order discount price of 5950 Euro (about 6500 USD). For more info on this new speaker, and pre-orders, check out the Buchardt Audio Website.
NEW ACTIVE FLOOR STANDING SPEAKERS
For years people have been asking for a Buchardt floorstanding speaker – and here we are, SO excited, and finally ready to announce the A700! Yeah, it took us 8 years to offer our customers a floorstanding speaker, but we truly believe, that we have something VERY unique on our hands, which has definitely been worth the long wait!
– and if you wanna save some coins, now is the time to order!
The A700 will give you all the goodies you get from our A500 speaker, but with considerably more power! In the typical Buchardt way, you get a speaker that punches way over its weight class, both in terms of power and scale, but also in terms of its price.
A700 Walnut, Black & White can now be purchased on our website.
An absolute masterpiece in engineering.
The A series is not just another Active speaker, it’s a flexible platform. A platform that allows it to be what you want, sound like you want, and be directly tailored to your room, both in terms of normal HiFi stereo setup, home theater or professional use. In addition to the extreme amount of flexibility, it can also be the most simple stereo you have tried. It’s all about what you want.
Be sure to pair them with our Hub + Remote to reach full potential
