Handmade in the UK

Nexus Loudspeaker

The Nexus loudspeaker offers sophisticated listening and superior design for a new generation of audiophiles.

Hand crafted from carbon fibre by master builders in the UK, the loudspeaker’s unique boat shape is visually elegant and optimal for acoustic neutrality.

modes and sound mixes to suit every occasion... controlled by the Nexus app

The system provides features that will be used everyday: different modes for a night-time movie vs a party with friends. It gets the sound level right so that you aren’t reaching for the volume control.

These modes are controlled via wifi using an app. Updates will be available for unique sound mixes by music and movie sound artists and can be downloaded to the loudspeaker.

A custom acoustic equalization mode is also available.

consistently excellent sound and spatial imaging

The ribbon loudspeaker and woofer units give ultra low distortion and linear response of a professional quality.

The unique tweeter waveguide gives constant directivity allowing consistently excellent sound quality and spatial imaging over a wide listening area.

digital or analog sources

Our version 1 loudspeaker has digital and analog inputs to connect with a TV, a ChromeCast unit, or an Airport for Airplay.

designed to provide a domestic anchor, Nexus fits organically into a room to create the right vibe

filling a gap in the market with high quality sound

We believe that there is a need to regularly experience high quality audio in homes with an appropriate aesthetic and that this is currently not available: neither from the loudspeaker brands identifying with luxury lifestyles of the “boomer generation”, nor from the non-adaptive omni-directional portable loudspeaker systems of the past decade.

Compared with the v1 loudspeaker, what will stay the same?

  • Waveguide: using a similar ribbon tweeter.
    General boat shape and size.
  • App mode controls.

What will be different?

  • Microphone matrix on the waveguide of each loudspeaker.
    • 3D voice pickup for VOIP, gaming, system control, Alexa integration.
    • Automatic room equalization: compensate for room modes, wall proximity effect and reflections.
    • Learns your preferred listening levels.
  • Turntable input stage.
  • Bass frequency radiation control:
    • Rear woofer reduces low frequency sound radiation to the rear giving a cardioid radiation pattern vs omni directional.
  • Speaker stand.
    • Carbon fibre and gel feet to reduce sound transmission to adjoining rooms.
    • We can pivot the loudspeaker for parties vs a sit-down movie.
  • DSP features
    • 3D headphone simulation.
    • Upmixing to create pseudo surround for gaming and movies.
    • Voice key-word detection e.g. for Siri, Alexa.
    • API for 3rd party dev.
  • Custom sound mastering for different movies and music recordings.
  • System firmware update via app.
  • Audio recording with 3D Ambisonic pickup.
  • Buttons with LED display to change mode: works without an app
  • Mood lighting.
    • Soft light emitted from rear of loudspeaker using LEDs.
    • Colors respond to ambient light, playback mode (e.g. movie vs music), or can be set remotely using app.
  • Audio IO
    • Support hi-res wifi and Bluetooth streaming.
    • Turntable input.
