LASER makes multi-room audio more affordable


One thing you learn about multi-room audio: it sounds fantastic but the costs can quickly add up, but Laser beams away the cost dramatically.

Laser is an Australian-owned electronics company that once churned out blank CDs and other gizmos, but today focuses on affordable and innovative technologies for all.

Its latest device is its SPK-WFQ10 Wireless Wi-Fi Multiroom Speaker, promising ‘value, versatility and sound quality.’

Feature-rich, it has a built-in Qualcomm AllPlay chip and comes with a Spotify license, ensuring it will sync with multiroom audio speakers from a wide variety of All-Play-compatible brands.

This gives you the ultimate choice in mixing and matching any All-Play speaker to accommodate your individual preferences and specific home entertainment desires.

The SPK-WFQ10 speaker features dual-band Wi-Fi, so you can easily connect directly to virtually any in-home WiFi network, without a WiFi bridging device, and is controlled using the free ‘Qualcomm AllPlay Jukebox’ app by any smartphone, tablet or computer that is connected on the same network.

Certified with Qualcomm AllPlay, the SPK-WFQ10 speaker is compatible with other smart media-supported brands and future AllPlay products

Because you can connect up to ten speakers on the same network, you can create your ultimate tailored multi-audio listening experience throughout the home, using each speaker individually or together in a group where all speakers play the same audio.

You can also connect multiple smart devices to the network and control playback and volume on any connected device as well as stream different music to different speakers from the same device.

Wireless music streaming allows for immediate access to featured music streaming app services such as Spotify and AllPlay Radio, Internet radio or music from your own library.

The use of WiFi also ensures better sound, longer range and reduction in audio drop-outs.

Chris Lau, MD of Laser said: “Australians shouldn’t have to pay a lot to enjoy the music they love, or be restricted by closed audio ecosystems.

“The inclusion of Qualcomm AllPlay and certified access to streaming services such as Spotify, means the SPK-WFQ10 speaker delivers the most affordable and versatile home entertainment experience today.”

Key specifications include:

  • Dual band 5GHz/2.4GHz WiFi
  • 2.0 Channel Stereo
  • 20W Power Output
  • Multiroom Capability
  • Qualcomm AllPlay

The LASER Wireless WiFi SPK-WFQ10 Multiroom Speaker is available in black or white from Big W, Officeworks and selected retailers and online at LaserCo.com.au for $179.95, and it’s available now.
