See that tiny, red, cube-like device on top of that speaker? It’s here to save the lives of all the old speakers that don’t have Bluetooth. That’s right, you can keep your vintage Mcintosh or JBL speaker(s) with its/their amazing sound and have the convenience of streaming music from your latest smartphone or device.
So, how does it work? The Vamp fits onto your existing speaker via a magnetic metal disc or the provided audio cables. Connect it, and voila! Bluetooth compatibility. Keeping those traditional speakers around reduces electronic waste, so it’s a win/win situation. And, if you possess no traditional speakers, The Vamp team will give you one, free of charge* (from the recycling center). Cool, huh?
“Includes an inner magnet, casing, 4 watt peak single channel amplifier and a re-chargeable battery with 10+ hours battery life. The Vamp also has 32′ Bluetooth range and can recharge or have constant power by using any USB port or USB power adapter.”
