The new Airpulse A100 wireless bookshelf speakers are offered in classic black and white piano lacquer, as well as in a bright red lacquer. The overall styling of the Airpulse A100 was inspired by the flagship Airpulse 7001 near-field monitors designed by Phil Jones.
The Airpulse A100 loudspeaker uses a proprietary high frequency ribbon horn radiator inherited from the 7001. The thinnest aluminum ribbon diaphragm is designed to provide excellent transient response, high sensitivity, extended frequency response and impressive detail.
The mid-range is served by a 5-inch driver with an anodized aluminum alloy cone suspended from a sturdy and rigid magnesium die-cast frame. The speaker is equipped with a 35 mm voice coil. The internal wiring is made with an acoustic cable of the American brand Transparent Cable.
The casing is made of robust 18 mm thick MDF boards and is fully lined with professional sound-absorbing material. The oval-shaped bass reflex port on the rear of the speakers has been specially optimized to minimize airflow noise.
The Airpulse A100 wireless audio system’s switching arsenal includes a USB port, an analog minijack and a digital optical port. But the main one, of course, is the Bluetooth v5.0 wireless channel, made on the basis of the Qualcomm chipset.
On the back of the case there are controls for bass, treble and volume. The set includes a wireless remote control that allows you to select the active input, adjust the volume and, if necessary, mute the sound.
In the US, a pair of Airpulse A100 wireless monitors can be purchased for $799.
