The nightclub and music brand has announced a range of speakers that bring one-touch access to the club

Starting out as a London nightclub in the early 90s, Ministry of Sound has since expanded to include a music label and other entertainment mediums. It's now moved into the technology space with its own range of speakers designed by the engineers responsible for its nightclub's sound system known as 'The Box'. The new range includes:

Audio S Plus / Audio S

Ministry of Sound Audio S

These are the two smallest speakers in the range, costing £129.99 and £79.99 respectively. Both connect over Bluetooth and have a splash proof design with a reported 15 hours of battery life. We're a little disappointed to find that the S Plus doesn't include the Bluetooth aptX codec for less-lossy sound considering its price, however. 

Where the two models differ is in build materials and colours, with the Plus featuring a more premium design. The cheaper model comes in black, blue, red and white varieties. The Plus will let you pair two speakers in stereo as well as including a metal stand to place the speaker upright. There's also a microphone for handsfree conference calling, which isn't included with the cheaper model. 

Audio M Plus / Audio M 

Ministry of Sound Audio M

Next up are the Audio M Plus and Audio M. The regular Audio M supports Bluetooth aptX, whereas the Plus includes Bluetooth aptX and Wi-Fi connections for a multiroom experience. Using the Plus with the Ministry of Sound iOS or Android app you can play music from your device, internet radio or through Spotify Connect. The Plus also includes DLNA and AirPlay support and has one button access to Ministry of Sound Club radio if you're in the mood for club music. Both models only have a 4 hour battery life, which isn't too much of a problem as they're not the most portable speakers. The Audio M Plus will cost £199.99, whereas the Bluetooth only Audio M will cost £149.99.

Audio L Plus

The biggest model is the L Plus, which will retail for around £299.99 and should bring the biggest sound. It shares the same features as the Audio M Plus and the L Plus will happily work alongside other M and L Plus speakers, so you're able to place different speakers around the house depending on the room.

All of the speakers will be available from June 2015. Expect a review when they're available.
