Ministry of Sound and audio products designer and manufacturer, Bullitt Group, have announced their partnership to develop a new range of premium audio devices.
On sale from May 2015, the new range will include wireless Bluetooth and connected multi-room speakers, as well as a series of high-quality headphones, including a DJ-spec over-ear model offering serious sound quality for home use.
To lead the project, Bullitt Group has appointed Scott Steinberg as new CEO of its audio division. An senior executive with extensive experience in the consumer electronics sector, Scott joins Bullitt Group with a remit to build on the existing success of Bullitt’s audio division, and has begun by signing a major deal with one of the world’s most successful dance music brands.
“We’re very excited to be bringing the audio and clubbing experience of Ministry of Sound to a wider audience,” says Steinberg. “‘Bullitt Group’s ‘ground up’ design and manufacturing process is a perfect fit with Ministry’s mission to build a more personal connection between music and its fans. Every single element of each product has been refined to deliver a true Ministry of Sound experience.”
The new Ministry of Sound products will feature premium materials and designs, as well as touch-panel gesture controls. The audio specifications are being developed in conjunction with the audio engineers responsible for ‘The Box’ – the main room at the Ministry of Sound nightclub – considered by many to be the greatest nightclub sound system in the world. The products will also feature built-in access to Ministry of Sound’s radio channels and the live club feed, giving Ministry fans the club experience at the touch of a button.
The connected WiFi range will be fully interoperable with all OS platforms, including Apple Airplay and DLNA, and will support multi-room playback as well as the most popular music streaming services. There will also be a new smartphone and tablet app that lets you browse and play your music from any device and stream different songs in each room, as well as customise features and access exclusive content.
