Art and technology combine to delivers extraordinary sound anywhere you want it.
Compact Wireless Speaker
This compact single-speaker-stereo bookshelf loudspeaker with Anthem Room Correction (ARC) delivers dynamic MartinLogan-level performance streaming audio over your home network. Use individually and experience dynamic stereo sound, or use two as a stereo pair. Bravado uses the same advanced loudspeaker technology found in our Motion Series. Lightning fast, low distortion Folded Motion Tweeters and shallow-depth extended-throw woofer cones make the most of high-resolution wireless signals. Processing is achieved with state-of-the-art DSP and high powered on-board Class-D amplification.
Stream Music with AirPlay
Think of a tune, then play it - instantly. Apple's AirPlay wirelessly streams high-quality lossless audio or MP3s from iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch® straight to your soundbar. And from iTunes on a Mac or PC too. You control your music, wherever you are, via your device. It’s time to set your music free.
Whole-House Music Streaming
DTS Play-Fi technology give you the freedom and flexibility to stream high-resolution music (up to 24- bit/192kHz) wirelessly over an existing Wi-Fi network. Unlike many other wireless platforms, DTS Play-Fi is an open platform, allowing you to mix and match any DTS Play-Fi-enabled audio products from other top audio brands into your ecosystem. Take advantage of endless choices, from your own music library to online music streaming services, and stream music from virtually any device – Android, iOS, Kindle Fire or PC.
Works with Alexa
MartinLogan DTS Play-Fi products now have “Works with Alexa” certification, meaning they can be controlled using voice commands given to an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show, Fire TV Cube, or other Alexa voice command-enabled device. Alexa functionality is activated by using the Alexa app to enable the DTS Play-Fi skill. This links your Alexa account to "Works with Alexa" DTS Play-Fi compatible products like this one.
After installing the skill, Alexa will know your speaker by name and allow you to control volume and playback functions such as track skip, mute, pause, and stop or request a song to play in a specific room or group of rooms linked together. Once an Alexa voice command is used to start audio playback, the DTS Play-Fi app can be used to dynamically add more products to the streaming session. Additionally, Alexa's Routines feature can be used to create events that initiate audio playback on your DTS Play-Fi speaker, such as setting up your speaker to work as an alarm clock by starting your favorite song.
Folded Motion® Tweeters
Folded Motion Tweeters work by moving air (which creates sound) perpendicular to the folded ridges of the diaphragm, similar to how an accordion works. This extremely low mass diaphragm "squeezes" air and requires almost 90% less excursion than the typical 1" dome tweeter, which drastically minimizes distortion while providing a lightning fast response time. The increased surface area also provides a wide, yet controlled sound dispersion to create a realistic and carefully etched sound stage.
Perfect Sound in Any Room
Anthem Room Correction (ARC™) is the industry’s best user-controlled DSP room tuning innovation. ARC uses an exclusive Calibration Microphone and advanced DSP algorithms to quickly and easily optimize speaker performance in any space. In just a few easy steps the microphone measures sound output, compares it to scientifically optimal response curves, and instantly tunes your wireless speaker’s output for perfect sound. You’ll actually hear the difference Anthem Room Correction makes.
And now with ARC Mobile, it's even easier to tune your speakers using an iOS device.
