CAMBRIDGE AUDIO’S NEW STYLISH WIRELESS SPEAKER COMPLETES YOYO RANGE

British audio specialists Cambridge Audio complete its Yoyo range, with the addition of the Yoyo (L) wireless speaker. If you're wondering about the L, it signifies the innovative home audio hub's size.

The Yoyo (L) features a full range driver and subwoofer in each of the front, left and right sides of the product. Each driver also has an independent low distortion amplifier, all housed within a compact, stylish enclosure. The front-mounted drivers are said to allow for superior presence and staging, while the side-mounted drivers give wider dispersion and a "room-filling sound."

To enhance the sound the Yoyo uses a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) running MaxxAudio, a suite of advanced audio enhancement tools from Waves. MaxxAudio offers clearer highs, enhanced bass and increased volume.

Wired connections for audio and TV include HDMI ARC, TOSLINK optical and aux connections, so most sources are covered. For wireless connectivity, Yoyo (L) offers Bluetooth and Spotify Connect, along with Chromecast built-in for seamless connection to your iOS or Android smartphone.

Conveniently, while 'casting' you can also continue to use your phone for other things while your favourite music plays on in the background. Or, play games, send texts, even pick up a call.

Also, the Yoyo (L) will learn your TV remote’s volume commands for seamless integration.

The British theme also extends to Yoyo (L)’s design which features bespoke, ‘sound-transparent’ British fabrics. The materials have been specially created as part of an exclusive partnership with British weavers Marton Mills, giving the Yoyo range a sophisticated, stylish look and feel. Marton Mills’ manufacturing process also includes the application of a NanoSphere® treatment, to ensure the cloth is both water and dirt repellent.

Available in Dark Grey or Light Grey, Cambridge Audio's Yoyo (L) has been designed for simple installation on a TV stand, shelf or sideboard, ready for use by the whole family.

The Cambridge Audio Yoyo (L) will be available in July for $599 RRP.
