Mitchell Acoustics, a well-known audio brand in the U.K., is coming to the U.S. with a simple mission: to bring back stereo listening for everyone at an affordable price point.
Offering both wireless Bluetooth speakers and turntables, Mitchell Acoustics’ audio products have been developed for casual and serious lovers of music as well as movie sound. Its audio devices provide a cable-free, Wi-Fi-free, and network-free solution, harnessing the quality possible over Bluetooth with the simplicity and convenience of the platform. The engineering eliminates additional equipment like receivers and subwoofers, removing the clutter from the user’s living space – all without breaking the bank.
The company, founded in 2018 by British audio specialist and professional producer/musician Paul Mitchell, along with audio engineer and sound electronics guru Alex Leung, will enter the market with four Bluetooth products: its 100-watt uStream One speakers; the 160-watt uStream Two speakers; a new, “go anywhere” stereo speaker set called uStream Go; and the TT2 Bluetooth turntable.
The flagship of the Mitchell Acoustics line is the uStream One. Highly popular in Europe, these speakers are truly wireless, with no annoying or messy cabling needed to pair them and no other equipment required. Though a few other companies have also eliminated the cable, Mitchell Acoustics has done it a far lower price point. Featuring the latest wireless Bluetooth technology, set up of the speakers is simple. Each has a separate power cord that connects to any AC power source. Once turned on, they connect to each other in seconds, creating a stereo Left and Right pair (in the same way as wireless, in-ear headphones). Connection to a TV brings a stereo dimension to the audio, and paired with any streaming music source (smartphone, tablet, laptop, even a voice assistant), the speakers produce a full stereo soundfield, lacking in many mono Bluetooth speakers at the same price point.
uStream Go is the newest addition to the uStream line, both in the U.S. and Europe. Like uStream One, they feature true wireless stereo Bluetooth technology and pair in the same way. But their smaller size allows users to take them anywhere and enjoy great stereo sound with ease. The built-in, lithium-ion battery provides over 30 hours of continuous play, while the all-metal cabinet construction makes for a solid, luxurious feel that also enhances the bass response.
Designed as a wireless Hi-Fi stereo system or as an alternative to a TV soundbar, the uStream Two is similar to the uStream One but generates 160 watts of sound power.
Complementing the uStream speakers is the TT2 turntable, created to capitalize on the resurgence of vinyl records, both among the older generation who grew up with them and the newer demographic eager to experience them for the first time.
The uStream One Bluetooth speakers are currently available online at Amazon and will soon be at a number of independent electronics retailers. In October, uStream Go will debut at selected locations of InMotion, the largest airport-based electronics retailer in the U.S., followed by independent retailers and online. By the end of November, the TT2 will be found online and in independent retailers, while the uStream Two will arrive in January 2023.
The uStream One system will retail for $499. uStream Go is $449, and uStream Two is $999. The TT2 turntable will sell for $349.
