Grub – Thonet & Vander’s Retro-Inspired 2.1 Speaker System

Grub1

I’ll bet that there isn’t a reader out there who doesn’t like music. Though our tastes might be different, music is something I think we can all agree on as something we enjoy at home while relaxing or while working. At home, I’d like to think that we all would rather listen to our tunes on nice set of room filling speakers, whether they be little portable units or huge stationary speakers from a home entertainment system. Most might not care what these look like as long as they get the job done, but for the rest of us, we want something that matches the decor of our homes.

Enter German audio company, Thonet & Vander and their new Grub speaker system – a ’70’s inspired design with modern sound. This is a very good looking, minimalist speaker system with a hint of retro vibe. The specs seem decent for a speaker system of this size and price point and the only thing I see missing here is Bluetooth and/or NFC technology. The Grub is probably meant to be hooked up to an existing entertainment system, though can most likely work with your smartphone or tablet if wired up.

Press Release

Miami – September 15, 2015Thonet & Vander, the German audio company that specializes in merging technology and design for state of the art sound, announces the U.S. availability of Grub™, their ‘70s-inspired speaker system with matching unparalleled, modern sound. This 2.1 system combines unique sound technologies with an affordable price of $129.99, making it the perfect addition to your home entertainment system.

Available on Amazon and Newegg, Grub™ features an internal amplifier with a power output of 48W RMS, 20W in the 5.25” subwoofer and 14W in each satellite, for virtual surround sound. All three are made completely of HDAA wood, a high density wooden fiber which delivers excellent acoustics and performance. With a “retro style, modern vibes” slogan, Grub™ stands out for its rounded lines and its clear nod to the ‘70s-inspired audio systems, preserving its minimalistic style as a trademark of the German Thonet & Vander brand.

Our efforts and hard work are focused on providing excellent products, with an artistic and technological quality that exceeds expectations in sound and price,” states Lou Leonardo, Thonet & Vander’s representative in the U.S.

Loyal to the German Bauhaus School design principles the brand was built on, this sound system’s composition is set apart from the rest of the speakers in the 2.1 line. The 3-way speaker, consisting of a subwoofer that reproduces bass, and a mid-range driver and tweeter for reproducing trebles, provides high-resolution audio that has been developed to offer an optimal response. The result is crystal clear sound at high volumes, with little to no distortion.

Like other systems in the Thonet & Vander profile, Grub™ features patented technologies from the R&D Department that work together to improve sound performance for the best audio output. Howl Bass™ technology extends low frequencies to deliver a more natural, deep bass with surrounding sound. Basses are well-defined in a compact size, offering room filling sound in a small package. For the trebles, the Wider FX™ technology produces a broad and extended surround sound by maintaining frequency response outside its central axis.

Grub™ features an antimagnetic shield to block out external interferences for uninterrupted sound and a bass reflex located at the back of the speaker, using the unique design to its advantage. Volume, bass, treble and balance controls are all found on the front of the system.  Grub™ also features RCA and 3.5mm mini plug inputs as well as a headphone output. Grub™ is an ideal, versatile sound system, perfect for listening to music, enjoying your favorite movies and shows or playing video games with powerful sound.
