Adding wireless is in style
Geneva Model L Wireless speaker/player
October 30, 2013 by Grant Clauser

Geneva Lab, based in Switzerland,  makes some interesting-looking all-in-one audio systems that have a modern minimalist appeal. That minimal aesthetic doesn’t extend into the technology though. The company has recently added Bluetooth to the Models M, L and XL.

All three models feature touch-sensitive controls mounted on top of their cabinets. Gone are the docks that used to allow iPod playback and charging. Now music playback comes via Bluetooth (which is available on all smartphones) or from the built-in CD slot (on models L and XL) or the FM radio.

Here’s a breakdown on the new systems. Floor stands for $199 are available for all models.
