Audio Pro teams up with Blackstar to bring stage performance into homes

Swedish speaker manufacturer, Audio Pro, has partnered with British audio company, Blackstar Amplification, to create a consumer version of Blackstar’s Drumfire speaker.

Audio Pro is well-known for its consumer audio solutions, while Blackstar is renowned for innovation in sound design, with many of its amplifiers being used on the stage by some of the world’s biggest artists.

The partnership between the two companies results in the specially voiced Drumfire Blackstar Edition, which brings the same sound experience into the home.

Originally launched in 2018, the Drumfire is well-known for being very powerful, with a capacity that far exceeds the footprint of the speaker.

The new edition features 300W of power, a 2x4” long throw woofer on top and 8” long throw on the bottom. It also includes multiroom capabilities, Bluetooth and Spotify Connect.

“When you go to see a live band, there’s an anticipation of the experience, the excitement of live sound,” said Ian Robinson, founder and managing director of Blackstar. “We wanted to have a speaker for the home that would create the same expectation and enjoyment. The Drumfire Blackstar Edition is a statement that you’re serious about music.”

Jens Henriksen, CCO at Audio Pro, added: “We think the connection between Blackstar and Drumfire is solid. The feedback we have received from consumers on Drumfire so far is that it delivers a massive, rocking sound that no other multiroom speaker is able to. Still, Drumfire is very affordable with a relatively small footprint. It feels like attending a rock concert right there in your home when playing the Drumfire. And as Blackstar wants to create a connection between stage and home, it certainly feels like the right choice of product to achieve it with.”

The Drumfire Blackstar Edition will be available from 10 November 2021.
