They deliver incredibly engaging, full- range and detailed sound with power and dynamics to spare. They fill your desktop space, living or hotel room with music.

grade cable ensuring optimized signal transfer and stunning sound.

UCube speakers combine an extraordinarily efficient low-power-consumption amplifier that’s perfectly matched with a Patented BMRTM (Balanced Mode RadiatorTM) Technology wideband, full-range
speaker driver that produces stunning, dynamic sound.


Technical Background
Power via USB is limited to 0.5 Amps at 5 Volts. This translates into a maximum continuous power of only 2.5 Watts assuming no additional losses. So how do UCube speakers achieve peak output power of 15 Watts? Audio signal doesn’t have a continuous power profile. High power audio peaks are transitory so the average audio output power required is at a much lower level.
