A thrifty Loewe fan is about as rare as an invite to a pimps &#39;n&#39; ice cream party. &nbsp;</p> <p>Not so with the Speaker 2go Bluetooth speaker.

Its aluminium build makes it feel solid and reassuringly weighty, but not so much that it&rsquo;s a bother for any but the weediest of arms to carry around. It&rsquo;s a minimalist design, but a striking one - all clean lines and a nicely machined grille, with just a smattering of buttons and an NFC tag along the top for easy pairing.</p> <p>Ports around the back include an aux-in for hardwiring devices and a USB input, though this is for charging your phone or tablet rather than playing music from it. It&rsquo;s still a useful feature to include on a portable speaker, although it obviously has an impact on the otherwise eight-hour battery life.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Loewe Speaker 2go review" alt="Loewe Speaker 2go review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Loewe%20Speaker%202go%20Rear.jpg?1389150545" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Feeling Blue…tooth </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Loewe has done away with the AirPlay found in its pricier AirSpeaker and opted purely for Bluetooth instead &ndash; a clever choice since the Speaker 2go is more likely to be used away from home, when Wi-Fi might be hard to come by.</p> <p>The Bluetooth onboard is of the aptX variety, so compatible phones, tablets and computers are able to wirelessly send tunes to it in close to CD quality, and you can connect up to five devices at once. We found it to be stable in playback, easy to connect and the NFC pairing is a nice touch for those with devices that play nice with it.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Loewe Speaker 2go review" alt="Loewe Speaker 2go review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Loewe%20Speaker%202go%20Buttons.jpg?1389150545" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Look, no hands </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>It&rsquo;s not all about music, though; the Speaker 2go also doubles up as a speakerphone so you&rsquo;re able to take hands-free calls. It offers echo-cancellation for improved clarity, and a voice-optimised microphone that sits along the top.</p> <p>From our experience, it&rsquo;ll do for the odd call that interrupts your music, but we wouldn&rsquo;t go out of our way to use it &ndash; it sounds a little on the muffled side on anything less than a perfect line, and unless you&#39;re close to the speaker, your mum won&#39;t be able to hear what you&#39;re saying no matter how loudly you bawl at her.

There&rsquo;s 40W of power to be had from two full-range drivers and a sub, and it&rsquo;s not shy about showing it off - you can crank it up pretty loud without risking distortion.</p> <p>Bass is rich and articulate, and goes impressively deep considering the wee size of the device - it never sounds boomy or out of control, either. In fact, it&rsquo;s a really well balanced listen &ndash; something of a rarity in this field &ndash; and the deep bass slots in nicely with a clear, energetic mid-range and detailed treble.</p> <p>That said, the Speaker&#39;s 2go&#39;s sound gets close to Bluetooth speaker perfection but falls just short. It does lack the spaciousness and articulation of the very best of its rivals meaning more complicated tracks lack a touch of clarity, and are at risk of sounding a little dynamically squashed and disorganised &ndash; especially at louder volumes.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Loewe Speaker 2go review" alt="Loewe Speaker 2go review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Loewe%20Speaker%202go%20Foot.jpg?1389150545" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Hearing things from a different angle </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Speaker 2go has a hidden trick up its sleeve to help it project its sound further. To see it, press the top of the speaker downwards and you&rsquo;ll reveal an integrated pop-up rubber stand that appears from the bottom.</p> <p>This tilts the device up by exactly 7.5&deg;, which Loewe says helps to disperse the music around larger rooms. It doesn&rsquo;t look much, but it does actually make a difference, and helps your music sound more direct.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Verdict </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Loewe has done a grand job of pouring all the premium quality and attention to detail of its larger, pricier products into the Speaker 2go. It looks the part, feels well made and is quite the looker to pull out of your bag on your next camping trip, festival or BBQ.&nbsp;</p> <p>It manages to dodge any tubbiness in the bass and steers clear of brightness in the treble to make for a well-judged, well-rounded listen &ndash; not something wireless speakers are often that good at.&nbsp;</p> <p>Its speakerphone feature may well be best avoided, and it doesn&rsquo;t quite have the same dynamic punch, clarity and subtlety of rivals such as the Philips Fidelio P9 or <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/music/gadget-awards-2013/stuff-gadget-awards-2013-these-are-8-best-music-gadgets-year/feature">Ultimate Ears Boom</a>, but it&rsquo;s a thoroughly likeable, listenable sound, and at &pound;200 that makes it a pretty tasty buy.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Loewe Speaker 2go review" alt="Loewe Speaker 2go review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Loewe%20Speaker%202go%20Front%20Left.jpg?1389150545" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-review-rating"><legend>Review Rating</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 0 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>A beautifully built speaker with a powerful, well balanced sound that just lacks the out-and-out clarity and subtlety the very best around<br />&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-preview"> <div class="field-label">Preview:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Disabled </div> </div> </div> http://www.stuff.tv/loewe/loewe-speaker-2go/review#comments Docks and Speakers Hi-Fi & Streaming Loewe Tue, 07 Jan 2014 17:48:43 +0000 Sophie Charara 1430887 at http://www.stuff.tv Loewe Reference ID decks out your TV in personalised materials http://www.stuff.tv/loewe/loewe-reference-id-decks-out-your-tv-personalised-materials/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Loewe&#039;s taking unique-looking TVs to glorious extremes this year at IFA with its new flagship line Reference ID </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="349" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/loewe-reference-ID-black-and-white_0.jpg?1364399670" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="333" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/loewe-reference-ID-black-velvet_0.jpg?1364399670" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="333" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/loewe-reference-ID-back-TV-panel_0.jpg?1364399670" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="333" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/loewe-reference-ID-regal_0.jpg?1364399670" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="499" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/loewe-individual-ID-TV-gold_0.jpg?1364399670" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/loewe-reference-ID-fazioli-back_0.jpg?1364399670" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="50" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/new-twitter-banner_4202.jpg?1364399670" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Flat-screen maestros Loewe have really pushed the boat out at IFA this year on TV customisation – the new flagship LCD line Reference ID can be adorned with whatever material Loewe customers want in a quest to banish boring black rectangles from our Interiors magazine-style living rooms.</p> <p>The Reference ID will be arriving by the end of the year in 40in and 46in models with a 55in model planned for spring 2013.

The 46-incher packs a host of useful tech and although it’s a standard active shutter glasses affair, the 400Hz refresh rate coupled with full HD LED backlit technology should ensure jaw dropping visuals. There’s also 2D to 3D conversion and a handy 500GB HDD to record broadcast 3D content. If your wallet will make the (admittedly unlikely) stretch to two compatible sets, then recorded content can also be streamed from one set to another.</p> <div class="field field-type-text
