   After having used a large number of portable Bluetooth speakers from most companies in the field it just hit me that by definition all of them were single unit ones designed for maximum portability. That's certainly not a bad thing since that's obviously what you'd expect from a portable speaker but wouldn't it be nice if you could also use that same device while at home? Of course the only problem with that is that we all would rather use at least a stereo speaker system at home and that's not something portable Bluetooth speakers offer, at least not the vast majority. After quite a bit of searching it seems that SuperTooth one of the most popular manufacturers in the field has released a product that offers true stereo sound coming from two individual speakers which are connected wirelessly to each other. The name of the product is the Disco Twin Bluetooth Stereo Speaker and it just might be what we've been looking for all this time.

 

   SuperTooth, headquartered in France, is a world leading manufacturer of Bluetooth speakerphones and portable accessories, with a presence in more than 50 countries. In 2004, SuperTooth created the concept of a Bluetooth speakerphone that could be clipped to a car’s sun visor providing hands-free phone call capability. Today the Bluetooth expert is continuing to pioneer audio accessories that are powerful, reliable and affordable, also integrating new NFC technology. SuperTooth owns its own factory, managing and operating the entire production and supply chain – from initial designs and concepts, to the manufacturing and packaging.

   The SuperTooth Disco Twin Bluetooth Stereo Speaker consists out of two portable tower speakers that feature Bluetooth v3.0 connectivity (supports A2DP, AVRCP and Remote functions), two drivers and a bass reflex system (each tower) resulting to a total of 32 Watts RMS total (WRMS/16WRMS each tower) and Nickel–metal hydride battery packs (one in each tower) which give them up to 10 hours of life at medium volume levels. These two tower speakers use a 2.4GHz wireless band to connect together wirelessly up to a range of 10 meters and that alone is quite impressive since you can create a stereo soundstage without the obvious limitations of cables (10m should be more than enough for example to place each on both ends of any room). At first glance the build quality of both towers may not be the best we've seen and the design is certainly not great but audio quality, range and battery life are far more important when testing portable speakers (especially ones which are not ment for outdoor use) so let's see what SuperTooth brings to our table with the Disco Twin model.
