Discount supermarket Aldi will be offering a range of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled speakers from Bauhn next weekend, priced from just $99.99.
There’s three speakers in the Soundmax range, the SoundMax 1 for $99.99 which includes 10W RMS speaker with 3″ Full range drivers, the Soundmax 3 with 20W RMS Speaker and 4″ full range drivers and finally the Soundmax 5 with 2x 3″ Full range drivers and 40W RMS speaker.
Both the Soundmax 1 and Soundmax 3 appear to be the portable options, with a rechargeable battery included inside. The Soundmax range are all able to support multi-room sound, which allows you to Connect two or more SoundMax speakers together to create a surround sound music listening experience. There’s support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, DLNA and Apple Airplay, but unfortunately there doesn’t appear to be Google Cast compatiblity.
The Soundmax system is controlled by the Soundmax app, available on Google Play (and the Apple app store), which controls setup as well as playback, including support for Spotify and iHeartRadio as well as locally stored music. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be support for Google Play Music, but with Bluetooth support you should be able to get around that by using it as a standard Bluetooth speaker. The app is compatible with a wide range of Android devices running Android 2.3.3 and above.
The Soundmax range aren’t on the Bauhn Australia or Aldi websites as yet, but should be up this week. The Soundmax speakers will be available in Aldi stores on Saturday October 31st and as with all the Aldi Special Buys, they’re available only while stocks last.
