- Full range sound, deep bass: The very best wireless music system around, A7 features a 6" Kevlar-reinforced subwoofer for rich, deep bass and a bank of four high-quality stereo drivers, specially engieered by Bowers & Wilkins. These deliver excellent dispersion, for a natural and widely spread sound. Combined with five dedicated audiophile Class D amplifiers, A7 delivers truly impressive audio quality.
- Audiophile DAC: Wireless audio is upsampled through A7's audiophile-quality 96kHz/ 24bit Digital-to-Analogue Convertor (DAC), reducing noise and increasing dynamic range, for a more detailed, natural sound from the high-quality drive units.
- Nautilus tapering tubes: Not all sound is good sound. A7 features tube-loaded tweeters first seen on our flagship Nautilus speaker. Rear reflections in the cabinet are absorbed by the design, to ensure pure high frequencies.
