Libratone selects BC127 for use in Loop, Zipp and Diva Bluetooth 4.0 speakers.
Libratone, High-End Danish designer of wireless speakers incorporates Blue Creation’s BC127-aptX Module in its newly released ZIPP, LOOP and DIVA speakers.
Cambridge, UK – 23rd March 2015.
Blue Creation announced today that Libratone’s three highly anticipated next generation Bluetooth 4.0 speakers, ZIPP, LOOP and soundbar DIVA all are using the BC127-aptX module to allow premium connectivity for its consumers to stream their music or television audio. BC127 modules allow for high quality analogue and digital audio as well as combining all necessary codecs for premium audio streaming such as aptX. With almost instantaneous pairing via Bluetooth 4.0, BC127 delivers on accessibility for the casual consumer as well as giving opulent sound performance for audiophiles.
Jan McNair, CEO at Libratone commented "Superior sound quality has always been our primary focus when it comes to engineering our speakers. We were looking for the component that provides the best Audio quality possible over Bluetooth. BC127 not only provided the best RF and Audio performances by a good margin. But it's also a module that was very easy to integrate and that is packed with advanced features we plan to use in our next generation of products."
A review of the LOOP from 9to5mac .com stated “...over Bluetooth, we had zero-drop outs or audio hiccups when moving an iPhone well beyond the standard 33-foot Bluetooth distance, actually getting over 100 feet away (and beyond our Wi-Fi router) without any issues. The streaming performance with Bluetooth is reliably excellent in a way that AirPlay has never been, and this would generally be our preferred way of using the speaker.”
Paul Roberts, Audio Manager at BlueCreation: “We at BlueCreation are proud to have been selected and contributed to the extremely high quality Audio experience sort by Libratone. And we are incredibly pleased with the finalised products in ZIPP, LOOP and DIVA. It has been a pleasure working with such a forward thinking, creative company such as Libratone as they match our own company values at BlueCreation.”
Libratone ZIPP WiFi/BT4.0, LOOP WiFi/BT4.0 and DIVA are available through retailers, online shops and www.libratone.com.
