Podspeakers Return to the UK Market

Podspeakers announce the launch of the new and improved MiniPod with the introduction of the MKIV and a new Bluetooth model

The MiniPod MKIV is an updated addition to the already successful range of MiniPod loudspeakers. The MiniPod is defined by its innovative design using the finest materials. High frequencies are produced by a silk dome tweeter with mid/bass handled by its 5 inch Kevlar® driver. The Minipods unique design optimises the interlocking spheres to actually enhance the speakers performance while making a bold design statement to any living space. This stunning loudspeaker is available in a Bluetooth model – for a standalone set-up in the most dramatic of spaces. 

Key features include:

  • Updated and innovative design
  • Constructed with the finest materials
  • Bluetooth model available

Available across the UK now, the Podspeakers MiniPod range retails from £299

The MiniPod MKIV can be used across a variety of home set-ups – whether paired with an active speaker or with a standard amplifier. With a broad frequency response ranging between 48Hz to 22kHz, every note is accounted for.

The exterior is complemented by a top of the range Kevlar® driver. For midrange perfection, the woven fabric has the right mix of resin to make the material damp enough to form a semi-flexible cone. The result of a softer, more flexible cone that disperses frequencies that are more constant and less delayed for a clearer sound.

The Kevlar® driver is further complemented by a 25mm silk dome tweeter for that ‘sweet spot’. The silk dome driver delivers a wider dispersion pattern that allows for high-frequency sound waves to travel more directly. The result is full clarity and a clean output.

Podspeakers are inspired by Scandinavian design and the MiniPod MKIV is testament to this. It’s rounded design makes a bold statement as well as acting as a catalyst for improved clarity. In comparison to traditional box speakers, the MiniPod’s curved design allows for greater soundwave transmission within the cabinet and minimal distortion. Without level surfaces and sharp corners, soundwaves have a more streamlined transmission.

The Podspeakers MiniPod MKIV is available from Hi-Fi Cinema for £299. Available in Matte Red, Matte Black and Satin White.

MiniPod Bluetooth MKII

For added compatibility and a host of additional features, the MiniPod MKIV range also features a Bluetooth Model. The MiniPod Bluetooth MKII is a statement speaker for the multi-tasker.

Inspired by the original MiniPod Bluetooth, the MKII is an active speaker with a difference. Now featuring updated Kevlar® drivers and a wider 48Hz – 22kHz frequency range, it’s designed for both aesthetic and listening pleasure.

The MKII can be used as a standalone speaker or within a stereo setup. Options include;

Standalone setup – Simply use one MiniPod Bluetooth MKII as a standalone solution, suitable for many environments.

Connect your Bluetooth device (phone, PC or MAC etc) to the MiniPod Bluetooth and enjoy your music wirelessly.

The original stereo setup – Take one MiniPod Bluetooth and combine it with a MiniPod MKIV by using a speaker cable and you have a perfect stereo speaker setup. A powerful audio solution for a simple stereo setup using well known and user friendly Bluetooth technology.

Ultimate stereo freedom – Get two MiniPod Bluetooth speakers and pair them into a powerful wireless stereo setup. You can even temporarily release the stereo pairing, allowing users to use the pair as standalone speakers.

Connectivity is key with the MiniPod Bluetooth MKII. Users can connect via Bluetooth, optical, auxiliary and USB inputs.

For added style, additional accessories such as hoops and spikes can be purchased to complement and optimize the MiniPod Bluetooth MKII. Silver, gold and oak finishes are on offer to personalise the speaker for any living space.

The Podspeakers MiniPod Bluetooth MKII is available from Hi-Fi Cinema for £469. Available in Matte Red, Matte Black and Satin White.
