Braun Audio LE01 Premium Hi-Fi Smart Speaker Review & Comments

No Tidal Connect, Spotify Connect, UPNP, AptX HD or AptX etc. - and a poor app to support it so it only manages 9/10. What a bargain :thumbsup:

Quite a left field surprise then. Its refreshing to have a quality newcomer to shake the market a little bit of a shame it lacks a few features and connections, however if thats what they beleive the market wants who are we to judge? I am sure JLP will sell loads.

£1100 for a single speaker with no real smarts. I can’t help but look at this and think, a pair of Sonos Fives would blow this away for less money, more features, better separation, stereo imaging, fully integrated app and more…

No digital input?

Relying exclusively on Chromecast and Airplay?

Seems a bit 2000 ish.

With an optical and or HDMI this could have made a top class sound bar too.

Think they may have missed a trick or two.

You could lob a Yamaha WXAD-10 into the aux input (if it’s any good) but that sort of defeats the purpose of a box like this.

A shame indeed. As a tv sound bar and music provider for the main room this could have been first class. Fit, forget and thoroughly enjoy.

As it is, it doesn’t fit anywhere. 🤷‍♀️

It's Pure (them boys what make the DAB radios) who've licensed the brand from P&G and aped some old Dieter Rams designs.. The real Braun made some crazy gorgeous hi-fi gear back in the day. Google "Braun Atelier hi-fi.."

What app was used to test local network audio library playback?
