Loewe Speaker 2go: The speaker for every room, especially the lounge

A perfect companion for your Bluetooth smartphone, the Loewe Speaker 2go is the speaker for every room, but especially the lounge. Why? Because it's made from high-grade aluminium, offers a rich 2.1 stereo sound and thanks to the powerful battery allows you to enjoy rich sound as you party the night away.

Perfect for a party or quiet soiree, you can play your own tracks or music from guests' devices thanks to the easy Bluetooth connection that gives you instant access to favourite tracks - from a smartphone, tablet, laptop or MP3 player.

But that's not why it's great for the lounge. It's great because you don't need to worry about connecting anything physically, or about having to plug in cables.

The Speaker 2go allows you to easily pair and connect your smartphone without calling up a menu – simply hold your NFC-enabled smartphone on the Loewe Speaker 2go and you're ready.

If you've not got NFC on your phone, don't worry - the speaker has Bluetooth connection, 3.5 mm stereo jack, USB port to charge mobile devices, and the option to plug it in to a power supply if you need more than the 8 hours from the battery.

That's right, all you've got to do is grab your phone, pair it with The Loewe Speaker 2go and you are good to go.

Music can be streamed wirelessly via Bluetooth up to a distance of 10 metres - without loss in quality, thanks to the apt-X codec, and if you must use a cable you can plug one in via the 3.5mm headphone output of your smartphone or MP3 player.

Thanks to three class D digital amplifiers driving two full-range speakers (2x10W) and a subwoofer (1x20W), plus an ingenious folded base reflex tube, the Speaker 2go delivers an impressive total 40 watts of music power, across an exceptionally wide frequency range from 80 Hz to 20 kHz which should be more than enough to fill your lounge with vibrant sound.

Yours for a £269 and available now, if you're looking for something with the iconic Loewe name on it, this is going to be the most affordable way to get it.
