Pah-tooey! </strong><br />Are you going to clean that up? Because it&rsquo;s not our job to scrape your prejudicial sputum off the deck. And there are several reasons why the T7 Bluetooth speaker deserves more respect. For one, it&rsquo;s made by British hi-fi superstars Bowers &amp; Wilkins, AKA &lsquo;B&amp;W&rsquo;. For two, there are several very good AirPlay speakers in its showroom already, including the iconic Zeppelin speaker. And, for three, the T7&rsquo;s got some see-though bits and we bladdy love those.</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-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-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>See-through? I finger my snook and say this to you: &ldquo;&#39;Tis a gimmick.&rdquo; </strong><br />Well, B&amp;W says that the honeycomb structure is designed to minimise cabinet resonance, giving this handbag-sized speaker clean sound right up to its higher volume levels. Ditto the soft-touch rubber enclosure that surrounds it, and likewise the twin bass radiators, surrounded as they are by two 50mm drivers. The T7 has sufficient heft to it &ndash; 40g shy of a full kilogram &ndash; to make you believe that it might be capable of some notable bass action. One thing we do know: the T7&rsquo;s hexagonal halo reflects light in an intriguing way and the whole thing looks, feels and smells like quality.</p> <p><strong>Wait, what? You said &ldquo;smells&rdquo;.</strong><br />Oh, come on. Everybody smells new gadgets. (MacBooks, in particular, have an attractive high-tech smell. Give one a sneaky sniff the next time you&rsquo;re in an Apple store.)

It has aptX codec Bluetooth, or you can connect your source physically using an aux-in socket. But, yes, you can certainly get cheaper Bluetooth speakers.

So we did some calculations, and on paper it looked like we could go loud enough and get the quality.</p> <p>We tested the Sound System in a massive warehouse, a development space next to our factory. Everybody heard it. It was rattling cutlery in the kitchen. There were some predictions saying it wouldn&#39;t go loud enough, or would blow up!

You can&#39;t change the laws of physics.</p> <p>So we paid the same amount of attention to the cabinet design as we do our normal hi-fi speakers, hence why each speaker stack weighs one tonne!
