Listed as £100 on their site, but still seems good value

However on closer inspection of their products there are some other deals...

The £100 is crossed out...and its price is £44.95....before the £100 it used to say £200

Those are both "Out of stock"... i wish I could have got the AIR200!!
Superb deal.....
This says wireless but it seems it needs a mains lead. Only noticed after I ordered.

There was a different speaker that was down from £200 to about £50. Out of stock though.
Any speaker will need a power source

Hi, Wireless in the sense that you can connect from your phone via Bluetooth. BTW this speaker is nearly identical (missing AIRPLAY and direct internet radio via Eththernet ) to the other one you mentioned out of stock. I also bought this one..you will not be disappointed.. unless you must have a battery powered speaker.. to note this weight about 4KG so you can be sure of great sound.
Most reviews via richer sounds...but they don't show these speakers on the site anymore, possibly old stock....Now they selling a Bluetooth portable green version for 70
The fake price in the title is why this deal is so hot.
Just bought for 44.95. Thanks OP!

Paid 100 about 5 years ago for very similar. Well worth it.

I know what you mean about it being supposedly 'wireless' but at 100W power usage, the battery would need to be huge to sustain any sort of reasonable run time

Ah man, I fell for their marketing nonsense
I bought the Air100 a few years back, was absolutely fine, but the lack of airplay, the pants app and the fact it was no longer supported/being developed led me to swapping it for a Sonos Play:3, which, was much better (and much more expensive). I since swapped the Play for a pair of One’s.

The Air is fine for a Bluetooth playback device... especially at the prices listed here, if you can find stock

Vini v2 air 200 has airplay but its out of stock, neither here nor there
I have the Air200 and it has AirPlay. Tbh I’d rather use Bluetooth so it’s hardly a boon. Amazing speaker for the price! I paid £150 a few years back from Richer sound.
I have the older version of this. Have it approx 4yrs and is still going. Use the plug to charge the battery and then you can remove the plug charger and play from the m battery, or keep it plugged. Nice sound output and quite heavy/sturdy so stays put when playing bass heavy music. Looks a good price, I paid over 100 via Richers

Most specifications for any product detail peak power usage - energy usage is generally listed as an average.
So if you get a fiesta 125 and actually manage to continuously use 125PS (91KW) of power, likely neither your petrol tank nor licence will last long at all - certainly nowhere near the claimed range. That doesn't mean it doesn't produce that power.
How would this compare to the Samsung R1 speaker for sound?
Gez2u12/01/2020 07:44

100W isn't the power consumption it's the audio output power



The power consumption dictates power output. Though the class of the amplifier e.g. A, A/B and G can strongly influence what is possible from a smaller supply in the case of G class. But generally.. the bigger the power supply and max power consumption, the bigger the real output power. I'm not into these wireless doo dabs.. I am into proper hi-fi.. incidentally Cambridge Audio make some great amplifiers with big transformers and output power.. only let down by very poor Chinese electrolytic capcitors that limit longevity. Par for the course these days... did I go off on a tangent?

Dunno.. but Samsung now own Arcam.. just heartbreaking.
Why the deisgner didnt design in a digital clock?

Tom WATTS should know!
"But generally.. the bigger the power supply and max power consumption, the bigger the real output power. "


What a load of tosh. For a supposedly high end seller their specs are wanting. It depends on the rating of the speakers in the cabinet. So if there are 2 50w speakers in the cabinet, then they would call it a 100w unit. I suspect there are tweeters or other speakers in the unit as well, in which case the speakers are going to be much less, just that they all add up to 100w.

The next trick sellers used to play was instead of quoting each speaker RMS they would use music power.

That is not to say Cambridge Audio is no good.This appears a heavy unit, which is also a good sign, but you would think they would state how many speakers and each rating

I used to have a 100w sound bar, which on paper sounds great but had 4 speakers in it (totalling 100w). I took it back and up graded to a 200w sound bar with a base bin. The difference was between chalk and cheese.
Oos
I've had one of these for years (>10) and it's still going strong. Perhaps not as light as modern ones and not as good sound as a bose but good value at this price.
Showing Out of STOCK now...the power of HotUKDeals...great if you managed to get one..enjoy...as much as I am enjoying mine

Must have been the 100 I had then, either way, couldnt integrate it with my smart home kit, so binned it off.

what on earth are you wittering about? Class G is more efficient than class A, A/B, etc. Class G can deliver fairly large outputs with a smaller power supply (and power consumption). But generally, ..the bigger the power supply and max power consumption - the bigger the output power. I fix vintage amps and I have an engineering degree. The vintage Arcam Alpha 10 I currently have set up downstairs has a 800 VA (approx 800 W) max power consumption to deliver over 100 W into 8 Ohms or nearly 500 W into 2 Ohms. The Alpha 8 I own has a 400 VA (approx 400 W) max power consumption and will deliver well over 50 W/Ch. By the way, it is bass, not base. Also watts is a big W not little w by the SI convention and we should also leave a space between quanity and SI unit.

Some integrated A/B amps will do the first 10 W or so as class A.

Lol indeed! It’s either 100W and will need a lot of energy or it’s not 100W (which it definitely isn’t!) and will require less energy

You really are a dummy. If you want to believe the power supply of an amplifier has no bearing on the output - go ahead. Fill your tiny little boots. Be wrong. Troll away. Yeah mate.. why do big amps have massive power supplies? It's just a coincidence eh? DDDuuuuurrrrr.

I bought the Air 200 for £70 during the black friday deal. Great sounding speaker HOWEVER theres one massive flaw with it. Unless it is connected to the internet, the apple chip inside makes it restart every 30 minutes so you can be playing music and it will just cut off and come back on in a minutes time. Great sound but a let down by this issue. Not sure if this speaker has the same issue though.
Edited by: "Pardip-M" 12th Jan
I purchased this on Black Friday deal great piece of kit it isn’t a battery that you can charge up but for the price what I paid for it I cannot grumble bought it through amazon tho not the Cambridge audio website I managed to connect it up to my tv and use it as a sound bar with a digital audio converter but couldn’t turn the volume up or down with my tv remote control a bit his and miss with echoing but I managed it
Everything OOS 😞
