Monitor Audio ASB-2 Soundbar

MSRP: $1,599.00

The Monitor Audio ASB-2 is a Soundbar on Steroids. If ever there was a complete home entertainment audio system built for today’s media delivery, then the ASB-2 is it. The miraculously compact ASB-2 soundbar combines a high performance active audio system with the very latest wireless streaming technologies in a single, integrated, beautifully engineered design. Promising effortless and unlimited audio potential for the digitally connected family, the ASB-2 will render excellent quality cinema sound from Blu-rays, DVDs, games consoles, STBs, and richly dynamic audiophile quality music from tablets, smartphones, computers and NAS ― even from CDs! At a little over a metre in width and complete with a low-profile silicon rubber stand, the sleekly curved ASB-2 offers an irresistible blend of size-defying performance, easy-to-install lifestyle appeal and comprehensive fuss-free functionality.

The ultimate audio hub for the home. The ASB-2 Soundbar can operate as a high performance soundbar beneath a TV monitor from rack or wall positions, but offers so much more than the conventional amalgam of left, centre, right speakers. Apple AirPlay™, DLNA® and UPnP enabled, the ASB-2 will deliver uncompressed music from files stored on PC or Mac, iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch, Android or Windows phone, or streamed from Internet services. In addition to iTunes and DNLA compatible Apps, Monitor Audio’s own Airstream App will send network-shared music archived from CD in uncompressed or high bit rate music formats up to 24/96kHz resolution. Friends can connect and play directly to the ASB-2 without network access via Airplay Direct. Connect a plethora of sound sources to the ASB-2 via three HDMI inputs and use the HDMI output for 1080p/3D video pass through and OSD. Families who love music and film, but loathe the clutter and complexity that come with traditional home entertainment will adore the ASB-2’s next-generation simplicity and performance.

Company Info

Monitor Audio is a British-owned designer and manufacturer of excellent quality, award-winning loudspeakers. With 15 categories of loudspeakers, including traditional box speakers, Airstream wireless speaker systems, and custom installation speakers for ultra discreet high quality sound around the home and outside, Monitor Audio continue the tradition they started in 1972 of combining style, high performance and value into everything they do.

Whatever your taste and budget you’ll discover a Monitor Audio speaker that answers your desire for great sound. We want you to share and enjoy the blend of style, quality, performance and sophistication that makes Monitor Audio unique.

Monitor Audio has become the world’s foremost expert in developing metal dome drivers. The Ceramic-Coated Aluminium Magnesium (C-CAM®) metal alloy driver cones used throughout our comprehensive range are very light, but very rigid and strong. Such a magical mix of properties allows them to reproduce the most delicate musical atmospherics as well as the dynamic bass excursions of movie action scenes or an explosive kick drum barrage. Our proprietary C-CAM® drivers can be much smaller than conventional designs and yet operate way beyond the limits of human audibility without distortion. This means that we can design slimmer, more elegant cabinets around them, so you enjoy class-leading audio performance from speakers that better suit your décor and lifestyle. And since they all share a consistency of tonal accuracy, our on-wall, in-wall, floor or stand-mounting speakers may be mixed for the perfect aesthetic and sonic result in any environment. In the strength and depth of our ever-evolving product portfolio, Monitor Audio continues to demonstrate the power of a high quality, high performance loudspeaker brand that serves every application, taste and budget — and every possible desire.
