Check out Moonraker – the Incredible Retro, Futuristic Sound System from Bossa

Drawing inspiration from the 1960s and a particular Bond film, Bossa has launched a retro-futuristic sound system that delivers studio quality sound in an elegant package. The Moonraker sound system features wireless, audiophile-grade electronics Integrated in a stereo pair of acoustically-optimised loudspeakers. Moonraker was conceived as a sphere to eliminate some common issues like panel resonances and internal standing waves. It’s an awesome shape that’s not only beautiful, but also has substantial performance benefits.

Here’s the technical bit. Bossa uses a low-volume, time-intensive rotational moulding process to produce an exceptionally thick polymer sphere. A constrained layer of damping material is bonded between the front baffle and the enclosure, damping vibrations created by the drive units. The result is a low-diffraction, low-resonance speaker with exceptional acoustic properties. In product testing, the sound system earned consistently high scores for its warm sound, wide soundstage and superior imaging characteristics.

Moonraker is sold as a two-speaker system, with one powered speaker and one passive
speaker. Engineered in California by Bossa’s in-house design team, the hardware includes four power amplifiers in bi-amplified configuration, a Bluetooth radio, two analogue inputs, and two wired digital inputs. The Bluetooth radio features high-performance aptX and AAC compression technologies and the user interface is a white LED display with rendered fonts inspired by early video games. The speaker’s hardwood legs are made from cut-offs sourced from the yacht building industry. A remote control is included for your convenience.
