THE+STEREO
Henry Kloss Model 88 WIFI

HKlossIconic in its design, sound and function, the Model 88 is one of the last products Henry Kloss created while at Cambridge SoundWorks. Released in 1998, Model 88 has generated a cult-like following among audiophiles and enthusiasts. Freshly minted as THE+STEREOModel 88 WIFI by Henry Kloss, the new design retains the original Model 88 acoustic system footprint with a reinvigorated, European aesthetic achieved by young Swedish designer, Alexander Åhnebrink.

THE+STEREO’s new design includes an elegant wooden enclosure that will complement any living and working environment. It offers a wide range of listening and connection options not found on the original Model 88. This includes dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, optical SPIDIF, USB memory stick playback, DAB/DAB+/HD/FM radio, and support for popular internet streaming services, including Deezer, Tidal, TuneIn, Spotify Connect, Napster, and Qobuz.

As an homage to Kloss’s original Model 88 design, THE+STEREO’s remote grants customers intuitive control of the new device with feature-direct access. This is complemented by an ample, 3.2” screen for easy navigation and visual reference from across the room. iOS and Android apps will be available as additional control features. Much like the original Model 88, THE+STEREO is ready to be used out-of-the-box with no need to decipher long or complicated user manuals.
