"If you don’t have a lot of space but want an audiophile-grade audio system for your living room or bedroom, Andover Audio’s Model-One is our recommendation" - Rolling Stone
"Andover’s Audio Model-One Music System is a compact audio system designed to deliver excellent sound.
The audio system can be broken up into multiple parts: a turntable, speaker system, bluetooth receiver, and an amplifier, so we’ll break each piece down.
The record player is a custom-made model based on the audiophile-grade Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Espirit SB. It comes preinstalled with an Ortofon OM2 Silver Cartridge, and has an acrylic platter to reduce vibrations from reaching the needle and causing distortion. You can upgrade the cartridge later on if you’d prefer.
The speakers have six drivers (the parts of a headphone or speaker that produce sound): four 3.5-inch woofers that handle midrange and bass frequencies, and a pair of tweeters to handle the highs. They’re connected to a 150W amplifier that will provide sufficient power for the speakers to get loud enough to fill an entire room.
Around the back you’ll find a pair of RCA (red and white) inputs for a turntable, a 3.5mm AUX input for a high-resolution audio player, an optical port to connect it to a TV, a pair of RCA and subwoofer outputs to expand the system with additional speakers, and a USB input and output to connect the Model-One to a computer. There’s a Bluetooth 4.2 chipset inside, so you can connect a phone, tablet, or computer to it wirelessly.
If you don’t have a lot of space but want an audiophile-grade audio system for your living room or bedroom, Andover Audio’s Model-One is our recommendation."
