Going retro does seem to be a route that is worth taking. After all, you can never quite tell as to when a particular sense of fashion is going to come back in vogue. Well, Thonet & Vander, the German audio company which specializes in merging technology and design when it comes to delivering state of the art sound, you can be sure that their latest release which is known as the Grub will definitely be able to turn heads. Grub happens to be a 1970s-inspired speaker system that will come matched with unparalleled, modern sound, bridging the best of both worlds along the way. This happens to be a 2.1 system that merges unique sound technologies without causing its purchasers to break the bank, thanks to a highly affordable price point of $129.99 a pop.
Basically, the Grub will come with an internal amplifier alongside a power output of 48W RMS, where 20W of it happens to be in the 5.25” subwoofer while there would be 14W of power in each satellite, for virtual surround sound purposes. The trio of them have been made completely of HDAA wood, which is a high density wooden fiber that is capable of delivering excellent acoustics and performance. Thanks to its “retro style, modern vibes” slogan, Grub certainly stands out from the rest of the crowd thanks to its rounded lines, where clear signals of homage are paid to the 1970s-inspired audio systems, as its minimalistic style is preserved under the guise of the German Thonet & Vander brand.
Certainly this is not a speaker that will appeal to popular culture like the Stormtrooper Bluetooth speaker but you can be sure that the Grub speaker will get the job done – with finesse and class, too. After all, it does come with an antimagnetic shield that will be able to block out external interferences for uninterrupted sound and a bass reflex which is located at the back of the speaker, relying on the unique design to its advantage. Volume, bass, treble and balance controls are located on the front of the system. Not only that, Grub also features RCA and 3.5mm mini plug inputs in addition to a headphone output.
