Mention the name Bugatti and almost immediately the image of the Veyron and Chiron come to mind. The premium automotive brand is renowned for building some of the world’s fastest and most desirable sport cars. Now, after cornering the hyper sports car segment, Bugatti is honing in on the home audio market with a range of new speakers developed by Tidal Audio.
This unique partnership has produced the ‘Royale’ range of speakers that will define luxury within the home audio sector. Exuding breath-taking performance and exquisite styling, the speakers are born from the collective philosophy both Bugatti and Tidal Audio share.
The results do speak for itself. The top-of-the-range speakers arrive with an avant-garde design, exceptional technical capabilities, and unmatched quality and exclusivity. Like a Bugatti hyper sports car, this unrivalled sound system is surely to impress with fine definition and incredible performance.
THE BUGATTI OF HOME AUDIO
Taking full advantage of their experience in their respective fields of exclusive luxury automotive design and premium audio systems, both Bugatti and Tidal Audio, have raised the bar for home music systems. Inspired by the Bugatti Type 41 Royale from 1927, the “Royale” redefines the parameters of audio equipment design. It also offers an almost infinite number of possibilities for customisation, just like Bugatti cars.
The speakers are offered in Monocoque and Duotone, with options that include piano finishes or avant-garde colour and material combinations. Each “Royale” loudspeaker pair can be customized with carbon fibre, fabrics, leather, polished stainless steel, dark aluminium or precious metal surfaces.
The front of the speakers features the Bugatti logo prominently. Finished in polished stainless steel and curved to accommodate the shape of the unit up to the brand’s qualities for personalization. In terms of performance, the “Royale” houses extremely powerful amplifier channels inside.
Both “Royale” speakers stand tall at 1.5m and weigh a solid 160 kilos. Inside are four subwoofer drivers per speaker and a 3-way front unit with a midrange-driver and tweeter with diamond diaphragms. In keeping the synergy between the two brands, the diamond diaphragm tweeter can also be found in Bugatti cars.
To ensure it is able to keep up to the needs of its user, the “Royale” is able to connect to all kinds of sources. This includes music streaming services and TV, which can be accessed via a matching music controller. The speakers can also be controlled with compatible smart devices for added convenience.
The Bugatti and Tidal Audio speakers are offered in ‘Edition Noir’ and ‘Edition Blanc’. Each is limited to only 15 pairs. In other words, über exclusive and super expensive, just like the cars themselves.
