CES 2011: Expect an iPod, an Android and the God of dreams. Sonneteer are back in the limelight.
The Sonneteer Morpheus Music Centre has come of age and acquired a family. It has its own stand, a Server which rips and stores music and, courtesy of Reciva the internet radio people, an App that will remotely control all functions on all the Morpheus units you may have in your home.
All of these will be on show alongside a selection of beautifully crafted loudspeakers from Sonneteer’s brothers in arms, Penaudio.
The Morpheus Server will be showing off its skilled silence as well as its ability to look beautiful in its hand crafted, engraved aluminium coat. The Music centre as well as a new stand will be going blue in the form of a Blue tooth option so iPhones, iPods, iPads and just about any other mobile phone or device with bluetooth built in can send music to it.
Talking of colours the full range of 12 will be on show; options now available on all Sonneteer products.
The annual pilgrimage to CES takes place again this January and as all the major players in the Consumer Electronics Industry squeeze into buses, trains and planes, Sonneteer too take to the skys.
Showing off at the Venetian Hotel suite 29-310 from January 7th through to the 10th Sonneteer will have set up the mock renaissance room to look like a typical apartment with a luxury home entertainment system gracing it’s living and dinning room areas.
The designers, Remo Casadei and Haider Bahrani will be on hand to take questions, demonstrate the performance and even share the Las Vegas hospitality. The Sonneteer Morpheus will be on show and their recently announced range of colours will be vividly on display. New will be the eagerly anticipated Morpheus Server which will be announced properly on these news pages shortly as the razzmatazz of the show is in full voice.
Sharing the stage with Sonneteer this year will be Penaudio who are very much partners in the industry as they often share design expertise, marketing platforms and the odd vodka.
Penaudio themselves will be launching the next generation of their Ambient range as they adopt a higher end stance akin to their sister range, the famed Classic Penaudios. For more goto www.penaudio.fi
Shown here are the Chronos loudspeaker which are available in a range of colours and wood finishes. The designer, Sami Pentilla voiced these using Sonneteer amplifiers such as the Alabaster and the Orton. Both of which grace Panaudio mansions.
“Customers can now enjoy a system from both Sonneteer and Penaudio and have the whole thing delivered in the colour of their choice” said Haider Bahrani in conversation with our editor. He was also reminded by Remo[Casadei] that “If customers have any interesting requirements then we can sit down with them and see how we can best meet their needs”. He was, of course, referring to the numerous colour possibilities on tap for the products.
Remo Casadei the author of the deSegno blog and one of Sonneteer’s main designers will be holding fort at Selfridge’s for the Christmas weekend. He will be there ready to answer questions and present the machinations of the Sonneteer Morpheus in its full glory.
Sonneteer have had someone in residence at Selfridge’s for the afternoons of every weekend in December to help, and inform and generally pose with the Morpheus as customers of the luxury store take a fancy to it.
