Award Winning Sound

The 80W amp in this active loudspeaker combines with Bluetooth connectivity to create a fearsome addition to your audio arsenal.

“The 80W amp in this active loudspeaker combines with Bluetooth connectivity to create a fearsome addition to your audio arsenal. If your traditional roots stil won’t acknowlegde wireless audio as a ‘thing’, though, wired connections include twin USB ports, optical digital inouts, a stereo analogue connection and a trusty 3.5mm jack.”

Record Collecter, the UK’s longest-running music monthly, carries an excellent review of the OLi POWA-5. Appearing in the June issue’s exclusive audio review spot, the mag says the powered speakers sound

‘admirably open and spacious with solid bass and, for the cabinet size, quite meaty’. Nice work.

We were extremely proud to read the review of our OLi POWA-5 Bluetooth-enabled speakers in the Weekend edition of the Financial Times.

Appearing in the esteemed How To Spend It magazine supplement, and tested by respected technology journalist Jonathan Margolis, the POWA-5 speakers claimed an outstanding review.

Indeed, the leading newspaper said the speakers

‘look fantastic’ and ‘could sell for twice the price’!
