The Electrocompaniet Tana SL2 wireless streaming speaker has been released to replace the previous version – Tana SL1. The novelty has received an updated case, increased capabilities and improved firmware.
The Tana SL2 DAC operates at bitrates up to 24 bit/192 kHz. To receive a digital signal via a cable, there are optical and coaxial digital inputs on the back of the case. They are complemented by a built-in streamer with Internet radio support, Tidal with Tidal Connect, Qobuz and Spotify Connect.
The Tana SL2 is also compatible with Apple AirPlay 2 and is Roon Ready. It can establish a network connection via wired Ethernet or wireless Wi-Fi. Another option for wireless audio will be provided by the built-in Bluetooth module.
The power of the built-in class AB amplifier is 150 W. In addition to the tweeter and bass driver, the Tana SL2’s aluminum casing houses a pair of passive radiators. All this is covered with fabric grills, which are easy to change by updating the design.
The “slave” Tana L2 speaker is arranged in the same way (it does not work as an independent device), having bought it in addition, you can get a good home stereo. The Sira L1 subwoofer will complement the set for trifonics – it will add scale to the low frequencies.
In Europe, the second version of the Electrocompaniet Tana models cost 1,700 euros (SL2) and 1,500 euros (L2).
