German engineered active near-field studio monitors deliver a crystal clear sound even at max volume
German multinational audio brand, Thonet & Vander, renowned for its state of the art, quality audio, today announces the availability of its Kugel 700-watt Bluetooth Studio Monitors in Europe. The Kugel is available for RRP $369.99/£329.99 on Amazon and Amazon UK.
The Kugel instantly transforms the home into a semi-professional studio with 700 Watts of peak power, subwoofer, and advanced bass technology. Together with a built in dual amp, each speaker has a 6.5-inch WOOFER made entirely of lightweight aramid fibre and a tweeter made of silk to deliver a highly responsive supreme sound. In addition, the upper suspension ring is made of highly elastic rubber, allowing larger displacement sensitivity and resistance to the beats of sound.
The enhanced rage bass technology extends low frequencies to deliver an extremely deep and powerful sound. This way, sound acquires a robust and voluminous character, while maintaining its clear and natural note even at 700 Watts.
Combining modern minimal style design with a powerful high quality sound, the speakers are enclosed inside a HDAA (High Density Acoustic Absorber) wooden finish, a natural polymer of high density that generates a rigid and dense material. These properties prevent vibration and leakage of sound, enabling a more accurate, efficient and sustainable performance. Additionally, the Kugel comes with two Thonet & Vander mesh covers and an easy to use IR remote control.
With ergonomic controls made of state-of-the-art materials, the bass, treble, and volume can be controlled and regulated in a precise and detailed way for each speaker allowing users to get the perfect sound for music, videos or music.
The Kugel uses Bluetooth 4.0 Aptx technology and also includes RCA 3.5mm Stereo and S/PDIF optical inputs to make it compatible with smartphones, tablets, DJ controllers, TV’s, computers or any other modern output device. It is also compatible with Amazon Alexa, connecting seamlessly whilst providing full voice control along with a great sound.
The Thonet and Vander Kugel speaker system stands out for its prominent, large and wide performance audio and, together with its innovative technology, provides a superb sound quality, optimised to play in perfect balance, redefining the listening experience to a new level of perfection.

About Thonet & Vander
The perfect balance of tradition and innovation, Thonet & Vander was originally founded in Berlin in the middle of last century when Hannes Josef Einrich inaugurated his workshop in 1949. Einrich utilised his telecommunication experience during the Second World War and continued his work with audio electronics after the war ended.
In the early 1990s, Thonet & Vander was re-formed by a team of German engineers in Berlin who took the concept of Einrich, starting with handmade speakers before moving into factory production. Their intention was to increase production, but still maintain the artistic and technological essence.
Now with the increasing demand for multimedia audio, Thonet & Vander diversified production into new areas, focusing on connected speakers for streaming media. The company is currently one of the most recognised multinationals in audio industry, with offices in Frankfurt, U.S. and Latin America and distributors in five continents. Thonet & Vander boasts a commercial presence in over 24 countries with its design that overcomes the barriers of time.
