STATE-OF-THE-ART PROPRIETARY CHASSIS DESIGN ENSURES POWERFUL AND CLEAR SOUND
The VOX ADIO-AIR BS provides both the hard-hitting cabinet resonance of a serious Bass and Electric Guitar Amplifier along with the high fidelity of home audio speakers. It’s cabinet structure utilises proprietary concepts that allow the ADIO-AIR to function as a truly multi-purpose audio device, excelling in all scenarios. The Bass Reflex technology utilised in the construction of the ADIO-AIR BS delivers a level of sound density far exceeding the unit’s size along with a sense of depth and space that you would only expect from a pair of stereo speakers. The speakers are contained in a sophisticated slant-body cabinet, creating powerful and high-quality sound that shines for both performance and listening.
DIVIDED STEREO CABINET DESIGN AND HONEYCOMB STRUCTURE SPEAKER FRAME
To prevent unwanted cabinet resonance, the inner box that secures the speakers is completely separated from the rear cabinet. Additionally, the inner box separates L and R into independent spaces to produce stereo playback with an enhanced sense of spatiality. Rigidity is enhanced by a chassis design that minimises parallel surfaces, suppressing unwanted vibration that would adversely affect the quality of the sound.
The front grille uses a honeycomb structure that perforates the speaker area with a set of hexagons. This efficiently maintains strength, yet ensures maximum space. The high ratio of openness means that the speaker is not obstructed, allowing the sound to be clear and direct.
PORTED DESIGN THAT ENHANCES LOW FREQUENCY PERFORMANCE AND THE ENHANCED LISTENING EXPERIENCE
The bass reflex design uses a flair component that creates a smooth widening at the entry and exit of the cabinet’s port resulting in very little unwanted noise while enhancing the bass reflex efficiency of the ADIO-AIR BS to further boost the low-frequency playback.
The unique slanted design of the ADIO-AIR BS allows you to position it with the speakers pointing diagonally upward so that the output reaches your ears directly even at short distances. This means that you can enjoy always performing or listening in the sweet spot. The chassis has also been designed to minimise parallel surfaces, delivering a smooth sound that suppresses any internal resonances.
At a mere 2.9 kg in weight, the ADIO-AIR BS is also highly portable. With a recessed slot built into the back of the cabinet, the ADIO-AIR BS combines sleek looks with convenient portability which means that you can take it with you to enjoy performing or listening anywhere.
BATTERY POWERED WITH EIGHT HOURS OF CONTINUOUS OPERATION
The VOX ADIO-AIR BS comes with a 240VAC Power Supply however, thanks to it’s highly efficient Digital Amplification technology, the VOX ADIO-AIR BS can also operate on batteries. Eight AA Alkaline batteries allow up to an incredible eight hours of continuous operation.
VOX V.E.T. (Virtual Element Technology) MODELING TECHNOLOGY – REALISTIC AMP MODELS AND STUDIO QUALITY EFFECTS
The VOX ADIO-AIR BS uses VET (Virtual Elements Technology). Instead of simply imitating the output sound of the original amp, VET meticulously models even its components and circuit design. Without relying on the ears of individual engineers, and without being influenced by the condition of a specific amp unit, VET perfectly reproduces the characteristics of the original amp. The high-performance DSP (Digital Signal Processor) ensures the highest sound quality.
There are 11 amp models including classic amps along with slap, rock and modern. Vox have included only truly usable amp models that have been tuned to maximise the potential of the compact ADIO-AIR.
