OC Acoustic’s Newport 2” speaker is housed in a 3.62” x 2.48” x 3.35” enclosure that nearly disappears. Though compact, the Newport pumps out a powerful sound for such a small speaker, thanks to countless hours of research and fine-tuning that results in sonics that contradicts its small form factor.

Mr. Kawaguchi designed the Newport plug-in speaker as a convenient and affordable approach to replacing expensive, unsightly wall-mount and tabletop speakers with a product that is wire-free and clutter-free, and always on. Bluetooth 5.1 ensures maximum reception range with multiple connections.

A  “Party Mode” makes it easy to spread the music across multiple speakers with a push of a button. Up to 50 speakers can be added to the single stream, if they are within range and sight of the source’s Bluetooth transmitter.  The Newport Plug-in speaker is available in four appealing color combinations: orange/black, charcoal gray/black, light gray/white, and champagne/white. The suggested retail price is $79.99.
