Transparent Sound Small Transparent Speaker | White
The new Small Transparent Speaker is carefully designed down to every detail. The product is refined to the essential elements, constructed by one single aluminium “uniframe” and tempered glass panels. This speaker is designed to be as much an interior object as a great sounding piece of technology, but also to be upgraded over time. It comes with Bluetooth™, but it is also ready for whatever tech that might be useful in coming years. An aspiration to become better over time.

FOCUS ON SOUND
Our design philosophy is to make honest products that work great and last over time. We have simplified the design to only the essential and iconic elements. We want the music to be in focus of the expression, the most important aspect of a loudspeaker.
Today many tech products become obsolete after only a year or so. We rather intend for this product to become better over time. The speaker comes with Bluetooth™ out of the box. There's no need for any app, they are set up like any BT accessory through a smartphone. Our new Small Transparent Speaker also has a nice feature built in which is called True Wireless pairing, which means you can simply play to two speakers at the same time.
There is also a compartment in the bottom that can hold and power various wireless upgrades. We currently recommend Amazon™ Alexa's Echo Input for multiroom music over Wifi (similar functionality as a Sonos system). In this setup, each speaker that should be part of the wifi streaming should get an Echo Input device plugged in in the back/bottom. The Echo Input devices are then configured in the Alexa app. This setup also offers all the voice control features of the Alexa platform. The compartments in the back/bottom of the Transparent Speakers are designed to completely hide this kind of modules, and short cables are included.
Our speakers can also be part of an existing Sonos setup. Use a Sonos Connect or AMP hub and plug into our speaker(s) via cable. These Sonos Hubs are a bit bigger so they don't fit inside our speakers, but still convenient for those who want to buy a Transparent Speaker but continue to use their existing Sonos system.
The ambition is to be able to upgrade all speaker systems as ever new wireless technology develops. This way our customers can keep the product updated by their preference and change only a small part, instead of replacing the whole unit.
To keep the crisp look, we encourage you to use the cotton gloves supplied when unpacking, setting up and placing your speaker. Please read your user manual and safety text.
- Playing Music: To play music you can use the music cable supplied. First, plug in the power cable and flip the on switch on the front, a white light indicates the speaker is now on. Then plug in the audio cable and play music from any source you prefer.
- Bluetooth Pairing: Flip the speaker onto its right side to expose the bottom interface. Press a short click on the button to initiate Bluetooth™ pairing mode. The LED should now blink blue. Now make sure your device /phone has Bluetooth switched on, locate and select the Small Transparent Speaker in the list usually located in relation to the Bluetooth settings. Done! You can now start playing music from your phone.
True Wireless Pairing
If you own two Small Transparent Speakers you can play music wirelessly to both units. To enable this first flip both units onto the right side. Plug in the power cables on both speakers and flip the on switches. Now press and hold the button for at least 3 seconds until you see a red light, then release the button for True Wireless Pairing Mode. Do this on both speakers (not necessary to do completely synchronised), and select one of the Small Transparent Speakers in the Bluetooth-list on your phone. Done! The speakers now automatically go into “left” and “right” mode, and will let you know by saying “left” or “right”. Now place the left speaker on the left side of the room and the right one to the right.
- Toggle Left / Right / Stereo
If you want to change these settings at any time you simply press the button for at least 6 seconds until you see a purple light, upon release, it will toggle between these modes.
This speaker can be wall mounted by using the included wall mounting brackets. To fasten the brackets to the speaker frame you should first remove the four silicon feet. Then unscrew the two screws (1) on the picture below and re-screw them into the lower holes of the brackets (2). Make sure both brackets are pointing inwards (3). Then screw the upper screws supplied with the brackets in place (4) and you are done. In order to wall mount the speaker, you can use the hole guide printed in the user manual to mark your holes.
Note that the screws and plugs supplied in the box are for concrete walls and a 6 mm drilled hole. We do not recommend wall assembly on other types of walls. Insert the plugs in the holes and screw the wall screws almost all the way in, then hang up your speaker. Any wall mounting is carried out at your own risk. If any doubts we recommend to take help from people with experience of similar operations.
For future repairing or customisations, we have designed the Small Transparent Speaker to be able to be easily disassembled and reassembled. In your user manual you will find instructions for disassembly and re-assembly. Please note that doing this requires a bit of experience using normal tools and that any tinkering is carried out at your own risk.
