What the designers say
“Susie-Q is an exciting development, we’ve created something that is award winning in three respects; Acoustics, Functions and Looks. The acoustics are not just room filling but home filling but with the power comes refined performance thanks to the bespoke mounting solution for the four speakers in Susie-Q. When it comes to the functions, we delivered everything from traditional radio to streaming and multi-room, Susie-Q does it all. Last but not least, even when you’re not listening to anything Susie-Q is a statement piece for any room with real wood, premium enamel and flared chrome detailing.”
- Jonathan Merricks CEO & Creative Director
Susie-Q is the Smart Radio & Smart Speaker you’ve been dreaming of with designer aesthetics, comprehensive functionality and an audio experience like no other.
You can enjoy radio broadcast locally with DAB / DAB+ Digital Radio and traditional FM Analogue, this means you can listen to all your favourite stations, from; the BBC, national commercial broadcasters and any locally broadcast stations. All these stations are easily found with auto-scan features and on digital radio all your available stations are listed alphabetically. If you want to listen to digital stations but don’t have DAB / DAB+ coverage, or want to listen to stations from all around the world, Susie-Q features Internet Radio which gives access to thousands of stations which can be searched, or browsed by geographic location or genre.
It’s hard to imagine you’ll ever tire of the radio with so much choice from anywhere in the world, but when you do want to supplement you’re listening with your own music, audiobooks or podcasts – Susie-Q will act as your smart speaker with a range of connection options. You can stream wirelessly from your phone, tablet or other smart device via Bluetooth or NFC. The addition of a USB charge port means you can even power-up your device as you stream. For the more traditional a 3.5mm aux-in provides a hard cabled connection. If you’re a Spotify Premium user you can also take advantage of the built-in Spotify Connect functionality within Susie-Q.
In addition to attention to detail in every aspect of the speakers from cone fabric to the type of magnets used, Susie-Q features innovative technology with Analogue Sound Processing (ASP). ASP is a unique technology which enhances the quality of sound but maintains the warm and richness of tone that you would experience from vinyl as an example instead of the clinical sound achieved with a digital processor.
You’ll also be pleased to know that if you already have a beautiful pair of stereo speakers you wish to add to your Susie-Q to create an even more expansive sound, you can do this with the dual Left & Right RCA jacks.
Susie-Q is also part of the Frontier Silicon UNDOK multi-room system, this open source platform means you can connect your Susie-Q to a range of other brand products to create a comprehensive audio system. You can control Susie-Q and the wider multi-room set-up via the UNDOK app available on Android and iOS. (Other UNDOK compatible brands include:- Revo, Roberts, Ruark Audio & TechniSat – please check individual models for compatibility).
Susie-Q features so much technology you could easily gloss over the aesthetic detail, but this is where the true craftsmanship of the design shines through. Susie-Q is available in real wood finishes (Oak & Walnut), these premium finishes have a natural feel with an exposed wood grain. In addition the front fascia is beautifully modelled with a stylish combination for real enamel and flared chrome detailing. All the elements of the user-interface are also equally well crafted, including; the 2.4” OLED full colour screen, tactile soft touch buttons and the convenient jog-wheel.
Susie-Q is the Smart Radio & Smart Speaker that delivers Sound & Style in Every Room.
