NAMM 2015: Blackstar Launches Bluetooth Amp

Blackstar has introduced the ID:Core BEAM.  They say that, based  on the control set of the ID:Core series of guitar amps, the ID:Core BEAM takes incredible guitar tone into the home  and becomes the central hub for instruments and stunning music  playback. Here's the story in Blackstar's own words...

For the first time  ever in a Blackstar product you also get Bluetooth functionality allowing you to wirelessly stream music to the amplifier. Alongside the six electric guitar Voices, there  are also  two bass,  two acoustic and two acoustic simulator Voices with  built  in vintage style effects for each.

The ID:Core BEAM's cabinet contains separately sealed and ported left and right speaker chambers to deliver clear,  natural audio  and excellent stereo separation, while  the fully sealed and ported construction gives incredible bass  response fro  a compact box even  at low volume. ID:Core BEAM will outclass the sonic  performance of the most  well-respected MP3 docks and with Super Wide Stereo the sound will fill the room.

USB  connectivity gives  pro audio  recording when  creativity strikes, seamlessly integrating as a low latency  interface for DAWs.  With Blackstar's free Insider software, it also allows  you to deep edit and share patches with the online community.

Beautifully  styled,  the ID:Core  BEAM's retro-cool design  will look at home  in any room.
