)-- New Bluetooth speaker is poised to disrupt the portable speaker world with unique design and large, crisp sound quality that is beautiful for any decor.Princeton Audio
, a new craft audio tech company based in Princeton, Wisconsin is now offering its holiday line of stylish, tonewood speakers in a limited quantity for the 2017 holiday season. Because each speaker is handcrafted and precisely assembled, they are taking pre-orders for thoughtful gift-givers who are looking for something truly unique.
“Each one of our speakers have their own personality and we’ve created four different tonewood options because music is subjective - there is no right or wrong, it’s just about what you like,” said CEO Michael Pelland. “This is high-tech sound that faithfully decompresses digital audio to sound like the artist intended and we’ve wrapped it in old-world technology that the master luthiers created when they made string instruments,” he said.
Because tonewoods produce different sounds, Princeton Audio invites consumers to take their challenge to find out which tonewood is right for them. (Tonewood Challenge)
Ian Nie, accomplished worldwide pianist and Beloit College music professor says, “The genius of Princeton Audio is to construct a speaker without edges! The solid triangular shape keeps the integrity of sound wave reaction without loss of signal. Using the construction shape of the speaker each type of wood would produce a type of sound quality that emulates instruments using the same type of woods.”
The wood is instrument-quality that could be used for a violin, cello or guitar - but has been re-imagined to make wireless music sound symphonic.

About Princeton Audio
Founded in 2014, Princeton Audio is dedicated to the creation of high-quality, handcrafted audio products while reclaiming and rejuvenating the proud history of local manufacturing in Princeton, Wisconsin. With its patented, readily upgradeable technology, Princeton Audio is designing speakers that can once again be viewed as timeless pieces. Even the best songs can be ruined by low-quality audio devices. With today’s plastic speakers, sound quality is often poor, devices aren’t durable, and consumers are forced to constantly upgrade to newer options. Princeton Audio developed a better option. Using the same woods and craftsmanship as can be found in musical instruments, Princeton Audio’s Site:1 speakers are individually tuned to take advantage of the unique acoustic properties of each hardwood and boast sophisticated, upgradeable electronics that deliver audiophile-quality sound. Through Princeton Audio’s patented Adaptable Audio Systems technology, the Site:1 is optimized to integrate into almost any wired or wireless system, including music players, televisions, game consoles, and portable devices. The Site:1 also enjoys compatibility with a wide range of current connectivity options such as Bluetooth 4.x and aptX. Winner at the 2014 International Design Awards, the company Princeton Audio is also currently engineering premium, customizable headphones. With a patent pending for interchangeable earcups, the headphones will feature the same high-quality tonewoods as the Site:1 speakers and have wired/wireless capability and over-ear/on-ear options. Princeton Audio recently completed a successful MicroVentures crowdfunding campaign.
