SuperConnect is crafted using the finest materials and components, its all-wood American Walnut cabinet with anodised aluminium and mild-steel facia and backplate compliment its advanced electronics beautifully.

Audio and Technology
SuperConnect has a hardware specification to match its impressive feature list. A large secret-until-lit graphical OLED display is paired with an intuitive joystick control, enabling quick and easy navigation around SuperConnect’s many features.
Every aspect of SuperConnect’s design and development has been geared towards its audio performance, from its all-wood cabinet through to the advanced audio electronics that lie at its heart. The result is an open sound with clarity, detail and deep rich bass – free from coloration and distortion and benefiting from an expansive sound field. This class-leading audio performance is delivered courtesy of a 15W Class-D amplifier and patented BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) loudspeaker technology.
Design and Construction
Aesthetically, SuperConnect is a balanced blend of modernity and mid-century charm, with a touch of functionalism added for good measure. The outcome is a timeless design with a level of attention to detail that leaves a lasting impression.
A hand-crafted wooden cabinet has been selected for its superb acoustic properties, clad in furniture grade American walnut, no other material provides the deep foundations of great audio performance like wood. The use of high quality anodised T6 aluminium for the front facia and speaker grille, and pressing steel for the radio’s backplate further inject a reassuring tactility and sense of honesty that cannot be achieved with lesser materials.
A World of Choice
SuperConnect is capable of accessing over 16,000 internet radio stations from all over the world, providing an unprecedented choice of radio content. Whether listening to samba from Brazil’s Radio Caraibas, New Orleans Jazz from WWOZ or live sport from New York on WFAN 660. With internet radio there are no subscription charges and no international boundaries. Connect to any Wi-Fi broadband connection to stream both live and ‘Listen Again’ internet radio broadcasts. Stations are listed alphabetically by country or music type, making selection simple.
Spotify Connect Explained
Spotify Connect is a new home audio experience that provides effortless control and enjoyment of your music across a range of devices, from your phone, to your tablet, to your SuperConnect radio. SuperConnect owners with a Spotify Premium account can now enjoy instant access to over 20 million songs from the Spotify archive, all at superior audio sampling rates, simply download the Spotify app for smartphone or tablet.
How It Works – You’ve just walked through the door, listening to your favourite playlist on your phone. With Spotify Connect, simply hit play on your SuperConnect radio and the music instantly fires up, right where you left off – ensuring you never miss a beat. Now pick up your tablet to keep controlling the music from your sofa, or seamlessly switch the sound to another Spotify Connect enabled product in another room.
The Beat Goes On – With Spotify Connect you don’t need to rely on unstable connections to stream music between your devices. You can make calls, play a game, or watch a video – you can even take your phone or tablet out of range and the music will just keep playing.
Wireless DLNA Audio Streaming
SuperConnect allows you to enjoy your entire music collection streamed wirelessly from a networked PC or Mac in your home. It supports a variety of audio codecs including WMA, AAC, FLAC, MP3, MP2 and Real Audio. Audio streaming requires a DLNA server or PC/Mac running DLNA certified software.
Digital Music, No Wires
Thanks to Bluetooth technology you can wirelessly stream music to SuperConnect from your iPhone, Android, Samsung, Blackberry or any other Bluetooth enabled device, such as a laptop or tablet. No physical docking necessary. The addition of aptX technology means that where supported by the transmitting device, streaming music will be at CD quality, rather than the MP3 quality of standard Bluetooth streaming.
SuperConnect’s exceptional audio performance is thanks to the inclusion of patented Balanced-Mode-Radiator (BMR) loudspeaker technology. BMR drive units combine the performance attributes of a flat panel speaker with the pistonic movement of a conventional loudspeaker, resulting in a high performance compact drive unit that can cover a wider range of frequencies.
The result is 15 watts of high-resolution digital audio from SuperConnect’s Class D amplifier, a smooth frequency response, expansive sound stage and deep, satisfying bass.
As is befitting of a product of SuperConnect’s calibre, a full-size, full-feature remote control is supplied as standard. Reassuringly weighty and with a tactility that communicates a sense of quality and durability, the SuperSeries remote control allows the user to easily navigate the radio’s menu system and access the various modes of operation.
