The new Geneva Model S Wireless NZ$595 including GST.
All about the new Geneva Model S Wireless iPod playing system. Everyone loves the look of the new Geneva Model S – with 3 high gloss finishes to choose from, the included stand, funky remote and illuminated soft touch control panel on the top, it's an instant design classic. What will really impress you is the sound that comes out of the compact Geneva Model S. Let's look at what people think of the Geneva...
’With such superb sound quality for a wireless speaker, it’s hard to see why we’d want to stream in any other way. The Model S is classy in every way, and deserves a place in your home’– Winner 'What Hifi' 2015 best Wireless Speaker Award for it&8217;s price.
Dwell – Editors Choice – 'Geneva blew away the competition.'
Robb Report – 'Looks more like a modern art piece … it delivers an expansive soundstage and terrific stereo separation.'
Record Collector – Editors Choice – 'Absolutely brilliant … not just the only dock here to be able to drive a large room, it also lifts the iPod into the realms of HiFi status. An ambition I always thought, frankly, laughable – until now.'
Macworld – Editors Choice – 'I haven't seen a full-featured stereo that's as easy to use … sounds truly impressive … more like modern furniture than an audio system.'
Apartment Therapy – 'Lust-worthy audio gear that pleases our eyes just as much as our ears … merging a knowing aesthetic eye for detail with a discriminating ear for warm sound…. finishes that could please even the pickiest decor snob.'
What Hi-Fi? – Editors Choice – 'The Geneva impresses with the scale and brio of its presentation … if you're looking for an iPod-based, true all-in-one with a lot more musicality than the norm, you need to hear the Geneva.'
Metropolis – Number 1 of the Top 25 New Products for the Sustainable Age
Financial Times – 'The ultimate.'
CNET – Highly Recommended – 'Blows away the competition … craftsmanship is superb.'
Home Theater Magazine – RAVE Award for Exceptional Product – 'The hallmarks of true originality. I was totally satisfied with the overall sound quality and musical experience.'
It's what's underneath that counts.
When you first see a Genena system it is easy to get the impression that there is just one speaker behind the cover. But as you can see here there is rather more going on - two very high quality drivers mounted in a substantial ported faceplate. Behind that lurk two extremely efficient Class D amplifiers with a very generous 30 watts - which starts to explain why the little Geneva has such a big sound.
Touch the top of the Geneva S and it comes to life dash; the backlit touch sensitive control panel appears and you're ready to go. Of course you might also appreciate that the Geneva S Wireless is also a quality FM radio with 6 digital presets. And the built in clock and alarm can prove rather useful. Not to mention the line in facility which will allow connection to components like Apple Airport should you want to enjoy all that wireless networked systems can offer. The Model S Wireless is a box full of surprises. Still avaiable is the 'S' model with the concealed iPod dock which rotates when you’re ready to play.
Most importantly, the Geneva Model S just sounds very, very good.
Play music wirelessly via Bluetooth or connecdt through the line–in input. If you have recorded at a high bit rate or in Apple lossless, you'll get the best sound but it also has the uncanny knack of making 128kb recordings sound better than you'd expect. There is something rather cunning in the way the amplifiers work in that with just about any type of music you can run the volume control right up to 90/100 or even a bit more before things get ragged. We've found that, like a larger speaker system, you can improve sound quality with positioning, but there are also controls for bass and treble to refine the sound in any situation.
When compared directly with other options, we have to say that the Geneva is still the front runner in terms of straight sound quality. It's easily the best in terms of how well it is constructed - more solid, better finished. It gives away nothing in terms of features and and has the most finish options. And to cap it all off, the Geneva actually costs a little less!
