Connect up any source, including a turntable, and listen out loud, with the Tangent Spectrum X5 BT Phono Bluetooth speakers.

Active speakers – just plug in your source

With built-in amplification, there's no need for a separate amplifier. Containing a 50 watt Class-D digital amplifier, these speakers are more than capable of filling a room with music. Simply plug the active speaker into the mains and connect the other speaker via conventional speaker cable.

Bluetooth 4.2 aptX for CD quality sound
With the Spectrum X5 BT Phono speakers you can listen to music from just about any source - even via wireless Bluetooth. Simply pair the speakers with your Bluetooth enabled device and stream your music library, internet radio, or services like Spotify. It's also compatible with Bluetooth 4.2 aptX for near CD quality sound.

Hook up with vinyl
New to the Phono model is the ability to connect up a turntable. Simply switch the RCA phono input to ‘phono’ and you’re ready to play – no optional phono pre-amp required (suitable for MM cartridges only).

More ways to connect
In addition to Bluetooth and vinyl, the Spectrum X5 BT Phono comes with standard RCA phono and 3.5mm connections to connect just about any hi-fi source. For TVs, CD/DVD and Blu-ray players there are a choice of optical and coaxial digital inputs. You can even charge your smartphone via the 5V 500mA USB socket.

Quality hi-fi sound
Although strong on convenience, the Spectrum X5 BT Phono also sound superb. Starting at the top, soft dome tweeter units give a smooth, detailed sound. With long-throw woofer units, the X5’s also give natural vocals and a strong bass. Need more bass? Use the Tangent's active output to connect subwoofer.

True Hi-Fi sound from a flexible speaker system – the Tangent Spectrum X5 BT Phono offers the best of both worlds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely set of speakers but could be improved. In this modern day and age where space is everything these are perfect for the minimalist look. They are lovely, very visually appealing and they sound pretty good. They offer a lot in terms of being able to plug in different types of equipment. The downside is if you have a CD player and turntable there is only one set of RCA inputs and you need to fiddle around with the RCA cables and phono/line switch to change format and everything is at the back so it is a bit of a pain. It would be great if the phono/line switch was in the front, also a great addition would be to have a white switch box with multiple RCA inputs and earth/grounding connection so that you can use it without fiddling around with switching cables. Unless you only use it with one music player it is not practical for wall mounting. Also the power supply and cable should be white not black so as to coordinate the look. The speakers are bit tricky to get used to it at first but quite easy to use after a while. Little details are not clear in the manual, for example the on off light color is not shown in the manual. The sound quality varies according to format, Spotify sounds great as does CD. The sound of vinyl depends on the actual album, strange I know but on my previous set of speakers (expensive, big and cumbersome) everything sounded great. To sum up overall it is a great piece of kit for the price.
