Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table
Bluetooth speakers are perfect for playing music directly from a smartphone, for example, especially when such solutions can be integrated directly into the living environment, as is the case with the Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker.
- The Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table is a particularly smart concept of a side table, which presents itself as a flexible Bluetooth Speaker.
The company Audioblock GmbH can refer to many flexible audio systems, but the Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table is nevertheless special, as it cannot be directly compared with the usual solutions in the field of all-in-one systems, even if the basic functionality and thus flexibility correspond to what one can imagine under a versatile modern Bluetooth speaker.
The special feature of the Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table is already in the product name, because it is actually a table, albeit a very compact one, a so-called side table.
Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table – A Bluetooth Speaker as a side table
The concept is actually quite simple, but simply ingenious, because there is no easier way to integrate a consumer electronics solution directly into the customer’s living environment than with a piece of furniture.
Audioblock GmbH has thus taken up a concept that was established in the 1950s and was extremely successful until the 1960s or even the early 1970s, but then such solutions disappeared from the market.
While in those years the manufacturers relied on radio and records for their solutions, today it is of course above all Bluetooth, because this alone makes the Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table an enormously versatile solution.
The Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table is not the first of its kind; Audioblock GmbH also offers the Block Stockholm Bluetooth Speaker Table, which has the same concept but a slightly different design.
Bluetooth and AUX In for other sources
Of course, a smartphone is the primary source via Bluetooth, which opens up the whole world of streaming. In addition to your own content, a smartphone can be used to access all conceivable streaming services; all you need is the corresponding app.
As an alternative, it should also be mentioned that the Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table also offers an analogue input in the form of a 3.5 mm stereo mini-jack, so that analogue sources can also be connected if necessary.
The Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table presents itself, as already described, as an elegant side table with a diameter of 410 mm and a height of 520 mm. The wooden corpus is largely covered with a textile fabric and is enthroned on graceful-looking wooden feet.
The top is optionally available in oak veneer or in high-gloss black, with an elegant framing in aluminium or chrome.
A special feature of the Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table is that it is extremely easy, even intuitive, to operate, as it has a sensor keypad on the top.
By the way, a smartphone can also be charged here by simply placing it down, as a field for wireless charging is hidden on the top of the Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table. Alternatively, there is also a USB port, which should not be forgotten to mention.
Nevertheless, two full-range drivers and a subwoofer are concealed in the Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table, which are driven by amplifier modules in Class D with two 15-watt outputs plus another 35 watts for the subwoofer.
The generously dimensioned body of the Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table produces a very rich sound.
If you want even more, you can connect two of these Bluetooth speakers to form a stereo pair. In view of the special design of the Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table, it is no problem to elegantly integrate two of them into your living room.
Prices and availability
The Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table is available in specialist shops for the recommended retail price of € 599,-, namely in the oak finish. The German company also offers two other design variants, Magic and Modern.
Getting to the point
Just like the Block Stockholm Bluetooth Speaker Table, the Block Oslo Bluetooth Speaker Table proves to be an extremely exciting solution from Audioblock GmbH, because it allows a flexible Bluetooth speaker to be easily integrated into any living environment, as it is presented in the form of an elegant side table.
