Thonet & Vander Debuts High-End Kugel and Koloss Bluetooth Speakers

Thonet & Vander Debuts High-End Kugel and Koloss Bluetooth Speakers

Miami –August 11, 2015 — Thonet & Vander, the German audio company that specializes in merging technology and design for state of the art sound, are adding their flagship high-end speakers, Kugel and Koloss, to their product selection now available to U.S. consumers. The top of the line speakers are a result of years of research and artistic development to be able to deliver the ultimate clarity in audio. Built from the best materials available, including HDAA™ (High Density Acoustic Absorber) wood, both the Kugel and Koloss are active bookshelf speakers, featuring Hi-Fi technology sound and Bluetooth capabilities.

Kugel, has an MSRP of $369.99, with a special introductory price of $299.99 on and This Bluetooth speaker has a robust power output of 140W (70W per speaker) to deliver crystal clear sound at high volumes. For room-filling sound, Kugel features Rage Bass™, an exclusive development of the Thonet & Vander team, which extends low frequencies to deliver a deep and powerful sound. At the same time, Glow FX™, another T&V’s technological development, provides smooth treble sounds with extreme definition and sharpness.

Koloss also features Rage Bass™ and Glow FX™ technology for powerful audio. A notch above the Kugel, this is the ultimate high-end speaker in the Thonet & Vander line, and will deliver a widespread and deep sound that features extreme power and purity. With an output of 160W (80W per speaker) and two 6.5 inch woofers, this is the most powerful speaker from Thonet & Vander so far.

Both models feature active crossover, where two amplifiers work in each frequency range, as opposed to one. This results in greater precision in the division of treble and bass, improving the quality and sound of the entire system. To avoid distortion, both speakers include DSP and ALC technologies. DSP (Digital Signal Processor) optimizes playback of sound using digital processing, and removes noise and distortion, allowing you to hear crystal clear voices and music. At the same time, ALC (Auto Level Control) maintains a low level of distortion even when set to maximum volume. This is achieved through a circuit that adjusts the amplifier when the input level exceeds a predetermined limit.

Like other Thonet & Vander speakers, the Kugel and Koloss have an Antimagnetic Shield® to isolate sound and eliminate external interferences for a virtual surround sound experience. Both speakers feature a rear bass reflex, with purposeful placement to increase the bass response through the build of the speaker.

Kugel and Koloss are made of natural materials like real wood and 1 inch silk tweeters. The tweeters’ fiber is known for being light and responsive, so that trebles are reproduced purely for clear sound. Even the aramid fiber comprising the woofers is of organic material designed to be resistant to shocks, light and moisture.

The speakers each have volume, treble and bass control on the side with an additional remote control to equalize them however you like. Besides featuring Bluetooth, both systems include an RCA stereo input and optical input. The first allows you to connect to different devices, like computers, tablets, smartphones and more. The second connects the speakers to Blu-Ray devices and Smart TVs. Optical input improves the quality of the signal received, reducing interference and offering a pure sound, a true trademark of this affordable luxury line.
