OEPLAY is currently crowdfunding for its MusicStar5 Hi-Fi speaker on Indiegogo. Thanks to custom-designed AMT tweeters, the sound system has a wide frequency range from 33 Hz to 55 kHz. You can pair two of the gadgets for a stereo sound experience and connect your smartphone via Bluetooth 5.0.

The OEPLAY MusicStar5 Hi-Fi speaker is currently crowdfunding on Indiegogo. The campaign is off to a successful start, with 136 backers helping to raise over £79,000 (~US$93,531), 937% of its £8,451 (~US$10,005) target. OEPLAY has designed the spherical speaker to deliver a high-quality audio experience, listening to songs as "artists intended them to be heard".

The MusicStar5 contains custom AMT tweeters, which the company claims provide a sound emission area ten times greater than a regular dome tweeter. The AMT tweeters, alongside other speakers and subwoofers, give a frequency range from 33 Hz to 55 kHz; this is wider than the Bang & Olufsen A9's range, from 33 Hz to 23 kHz. Plus, technology built into the MusicStar5 provides a dynamic soundstage for an immersive 3D experience. To enhance this, you can connect two OEPLAY speakers to create a stereo sound.

You can connect your smartphone to the gadget from up to 30 m (~98 ft) away via Bluetooth 5.0, allowing you to stream music from the app of your choice. Alternatively, you can connect via USB-A or AUX ports on the back of the speaker. The device is suitable for indoor use, perfect for rooms from 45 to 69 m² (~484 to 743 ft²) in size. You can currently receive the OEPLAY MusicStar5 speaker when you pledge US$469 to the Indiegogo campaign. The gadget is available in various colors and is expected to ship in November, with the company suggesting the sound system is already in production.
