Monitor Audio Airstream S300 Press Release

Stylish Apple AirPlay™ enabled audio system renders great sound from PC, smartphone or tablet, in the home and beyond...

The compact, Apple AirPlay™ enabled Airstream S300 is a powerful new 150W stereo speaker system bristling with high-tech audio design features and easy to use wireless technologies. It provides unlimited access to music streamed from the Internet or stored on computer, smart phone or tablet - and uses a custom-tuned high-calibre audio system to liberate new energy, detail and dynamism from every source.

Music Unlimited

There's no limit to the ways to play to the S300. Through an existing Wi-Fi network, stream uncompressed audio from iTunes, Spotify™, Last.FM™, YouTube and other Apps installed on computer, smartphone or tablet. Friends can join the party and play from their own devices through Wi-Fi. Beyond the range of the router: in the garden, at the office or hotel room, the S300's Airplay Direct™ feature enables any i-device to connect without a Wi-Fi network.

Design For Sound

Crafted from an acoustically ideal mineral-filled polymer and beautifully styled in a choice of durable white or charcoal grey finishes - complete with toughened glass end trims - the curvy S300 exudes designer quality from shelf, table top or wall-mount, and delivers excellent audio performance for truly connected music lovers.

Monitor Audio has invested the experience of forty years to reproduce our signature wideband response in a go-anywhere format. The S300 incorporates a precision-calibrated two-way audio system comprising four advanced DSP-controlled amplifiers driving four C-CAM® speakers, configured in stereo pairs of bass units and tweeters. Signal paths are digital to the S300's high resolution 24 bit DACs, which deliver a purer analogue waveform optimised to match the performance each driver. As a result, the bijou S300 will defy expectations of scale to reproduce the accurate sound balance, dynamic bass punch, clean natural highs and room-filling levels usually associated with a larger specialised hi-fi system.

Unique EQ

The system's in-room response is enhanced still further by Monitor Audio's innovative APC (Automatic Position Correction), which compensates for boundary effects and room acoustics. It uses an integrated microphone to measure the total frequency response in any location, accounting for anomalies introduced by the action of room furnishings, corners and walls. A micro-processor then compares the response with an 'anechoic' ideal, and adjusts the S300 accordingly to recreate the ideal sound balance in any space. APC adjustment is performed automatically and ensures that the S300 sounds great wherever it's placed.

All The Music, Anywhere, Anytime

The S300's super-compact proportions mean that it can be positioned in places usually denied to high quality sound systems: a convenient shelf or work surface; TV rack or stand. It will even act as a TV sound bar when connected via its auxiliary stereo jack. If surface area is especially restricted, mount the S300 to any wall using the integrated mounting and Monitor Audio's Universal Wall Bracket (UWB).

Styled to blend beautifully with room décor, and with virtually limitless installation possibilities around the home, Monitor Audio's S300 offers great sound from an amazing range of sources, wherever it's needed.
