Give your tunes a wireless workout with Acoustic Energy's Aego BT2 Bluetooth loudspeaker

Award-winning loudspeaker maker Acoustic Energy has just announced the launch of the all-new Aego BT2 Bluetooth loudspeaker, which also marks the company's 30th anniversary year.

The Aego BT2 features a rather fetching aluminium chassis that completes a stylish yet minimalist aesthetic. With a power rating of 40 watts RMS, the bespoke twin 2.5 inch drivers and large side-firing bass radiators provide plenty of power and bandwidth to fill any room with sound.

The BT2 also supports Stereolink mode (where two speakers can be used as a stereo pair), while the top mounted tactile push button controls make control and pairing easy. For optimal performance, the BT2 also supports Bluetooth 4.2 and Apt-X Low Latency for video playback without lipsync issues.

The new BT2 is available from electronic retailers, selected high street stores and direct from the AE website during June with a UK price tag of only £249.

You can now pre-order your very own Samsung Galaxy Book if you're living in the UK

When we went hands on with Samsung's new 2-in-1 tablet-cum-laptop back in February, and we were suitably impressed with its Super AMOLED screen, S Pen accuracy and its sheer portable power. There was no price available at the time, but Samsung has now confirmed the Galaxy Book will retail for just shy of £650 in the UK and will go on sale next week.

Pre-orders are now open on the official Samsung online store for the Galaxy Book 12-inch and the 10.6-inch editions, with both models including a TFT screen that support 4K video playback and provides ample room to scan documents on the go or enjoy film marathons anywhere and at any time.

Prices for the new Galaxy Book start from £649. You can pre-order the Galaxy Book in the UK through Samsung’s online store right now. The Galaxy Book will launch in the UK on 16 June 2017.
