Cambridge Audio Yoyo M
Brand Cambridge Audio
The letter (M) stands for medium and from the outside, that is exactly what this speaker is. But there is more - two in fact. Yes, a one box speaker is practical and space efficient, but from a sound perspective this is a compromise. Recorded music is mastered to be heard in stereo, and for that you need two speakers. Which is why Cambridge Audio have introduced L+R channel into the world of portable Bluetooth speakers.
Designed for the Great British Sound, the Cambridge YOYO (M) puts sound ahead of all else. Despite its highly compact and perfectly portable size, the YOYO gives a full-bodied, room-filling and anything but small sound. Rather than using a single box, the YOYO (M) splits its two-way speakers into two separate speaker enclosures. This not only means that each channel has its own speakers and amplifier, but also that you're able to move the speakers apart, giving you a spacious sound that lets the music 'breathe'. The two-way speakers feature dedicated drive units for the treble and mid/bass. This helps promote precision and detail, letting you hear every nuance of the music in crystal clear clarity.
Bluetooth: Thanks to Bluetooth you can hook up your smartphone, tablet, laptop or computer and stream your music library with ease. Whether you use Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer or all of them, it's also a great way of streaming your favourite music services - wire free. Playing music from your smartphone couldn't be easier with the YOYO. All you need to do is hold the NFC-compatible device next to the speaker and you're ready to start streaming. An added benefit of Bluetooth connectivity with your smartphone is the option of hands free phone calls. A built-in microphone, lets you take calls hands-free, making this Bluetooth speaker ideal for the kitchen or workshop when you don't want to have to touch your phone with messy hands.
Gesture Control: Gesture control is ideal if you've got your hands full in the kitchen or muddy from gardening. Rather than touching the speaker or your smartphone, simply swipe across the top of the panel to play, pause or skip - no contact required!
USB Charging: As much as we love our smartphones, the battery life often lets us down. So we’ve included a USB charging port so even when you’re not plugged into the mains you can top up your phone’s battery.
Rechargeable Battery And Charging: A neat touch with the YOYO is the built-in rechargeable battery. Once charged it's good for up to 24 hours of continuous playback - enough for most outdoor parties. The speaker also has the ability to charge your smartphone on-the-go via the USB, enabling your phone to keep pace.
British Fabrics from Marton Mills: Cambridge Audio wanted YOYO to deliver British Sound in British Style so they partnered with world-renowned Yorkshire weavers Marton Mills who have been expertly crafting fabrics since 1931. Wrapped in acoustically transparent, worsted suit material, the YOYO features a totally unique and luxurious finish. Made from 100% worsted wool but, thanks to NanoSphere protection, resistant to dirt and liquid, the YOYO offers the best of all worlds. All you have to do is choose the colour that best suits your decor.
