The wait is over… the new Aego has arrived!

Acoustic Energy has launched the latest generation of its best-selling active loudspeaker package – now in two versions; the Aego³ and Aego Sound3ar.

Ideal for music, movies and gaming, the long running and multi award winning Aego sub-sat series combines miniature high-clarity satellite speakers with a powerful matching subwoofer. The subwoofer houses comprehensive wired and wireless connectivity plus high-output amplifiers for all three channels.

Offering spectacular sonic performance in a very affordable package has always been Aego’s series key strength, making it one of the UK’s best-selling sub-sat speaker packages of all time. The new Aego³ builds on that tradition offering best-ever Aego performance at just £199.99.

NEW for the Aego³, this next generation model will be available in two versions. The traditional subwoofer plus stereo satellite package is now joined by a new subwoofer plus single-speaker stereo soundbar version known as the Aego³ Sound3ar. Thanks to keeping the electronics and connectivity in the subwoofer the new Aego Sound3ar is one of the smallest, neatest soundbars available yet packs a punch well above its size.

Both formats share the same subwoofer module featuring a suite of input connections including optical digital, analogue and Bluetooth aptX wireless for instant high-quality music streaming from any Bluetooth enabled smart device.

Both the stereo loudspeaker and soundbar systems benefit from AE’s renowned audio performance and the Aego series’ famed metal-bodied satellite speakers. The aluminium alloy housing offers a supremely rigid enclosure for class-leading acoustic performance as well as looking sumptuously stylish. On the desktop, the Aego³ satellite speakers’ brushed aluminium finish is the perfect match for Apple computers and will complement a wide range of modern PCs. The Aego Sound3ar, with its thin bevel and dark grille, will match a wide range of cutting edge LCD and OLED TVs.

The Aego Sound3ar adds additional versatility with a variety of mounting options. Placed on traditional AV furniture, the Sound3ar sits with the drivers facing upwards at 30 degrees. AE engineers experimented with the firing angle, establishing 30 degrees as the optimum performance for room projection and reducing reflections from the top surface of AV furniture that can make dialogue less intelligible. For those with TVs on the wall, the Sound3ar also offers flush-to-wall keyway mounting options.

Over three years in development, the new Aego³ subwoofer is a compact hub of the Aego³ system. Housing the input connectivity, amplifiers and LED status, volume and bass level indicators, only the subwoofer need be connected to the mains and your input devices. This simplifies connectivity to the Aego³ satellites or Sound3ar with just the dedicated RCA to RCA Aego speaker cables supplied.

Both options for the Aego³ benefit from the series’ signature ultra-compact speaker design, offering class leading power for their compact size and easy to place design.
