Master & Dynamic has made a name for itself with headphones that combine style, premium materials, and good sound. For its first wireless speaker, the company is going all in on style. Thirty-five pounds worth, to be exact.
The new $1,800 MA770 speaker is unlike most other wireless speakers you’ve seen because its housing is a molded piece of concrete. Tipping the scales at 35 pounds, the MA770 is designed to be put in your house and stay there — there’s no taking this to the beach.
In that sculpted body, which was designed in partnership with architect Sir David Adjaye, are two 4-inch kevlar woofers and a 1.5-inch titanium tweeter powered by a 100 watt Class D amp. For connectivity, the MA770 has Chromecast built in, as well as Bluetooth and a wired auxiliary input. According to Master & Dynamic, the MA770 is the first Chromecast speaker that uses multiroom audio for stereo pairing. MORE@TheVerge
