Edifier has announced the launch of the MP230 Bluetooth Speaker, pairing retro looks to strong audio performance that leverages the brand’s expertise.

The brand new speaker comes dressed in a retro 70s inspired aesthetic with wooden enclosure and cassette-style buttons, a look that would look at home in most living spaces.

The MP230 includes a stereo acoustic system composed of two 48mm full-range drivers and an integrated large double passive radiator, capable of producing a frequency response of 70Hz-13KHz. The in-built Class-D digital amplifiers (with 10W + 10W RMS power output) aim to reduce distortion and enhance bass frequencies bringing users an open sound field.

It also comes with up to 16 hours of playback time and multiple input options including Bluetooth v5.0, AUX, sound card and TF card. This beech wood speaker can be charged via USB so it’s easy to keep on the go as well as sitting pretty indoors.

In November last year, Edifier announced they had been honoured for four awards at the CES Innovation Awards 2022, which included the MP230 as well as their NeoBuds Pro, MC500 Sound Console and the M100 Plus Portable Waterproof Speaker.

Speaking to Yahoo Finance at the time on the huge achievement for the brand, Edifier’s CEO Stanley Wen said, “This is an immense honour for the brand as we always strive to provide our consumers with cutting edge technology and sound design all at a price point that they can afford. With our years of research within the audio industry, bringing consumers high quality audio products has always been part of our core values. We also seek to remain at the forefront and incorporate the latest technology and features into each of our products for the purest sounds in their respective classes.”

The speaker will be available soon at £99.99.
