Frontier Smart Technologies partners with high-end electronics brand Loewe for its new range of SmartRadios

13 January, 2021

Frontier’s Venice X platform will soon power the listening experience of a new range of SmartRadios launched by German brand Loewe, a company perhaps better known for its high-end TVs.

Frontier’s Venice X delivers the most reliable and highest quality SmartRadio solution in the market. The module includes Bluetooth, FM, DAB+ and Internet connectivity via Wi-Fi, allowing Internet Radio, Podcasts and music streaming via Spotify, Amazon and newly released Deezer music services. Loewe will be the first product launched that supports Deezer.

Prem Rajalingham, Managing Director at Frontier, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Loewe and that our solutions have been recognised as market leading by such a prestigious brand. The SmartRadio product category goes from strength to strength, with exceptional growth seen in 2020 and expected in 2021.”

Loewe’s new product line, Loewe klang s1, will provide beautifully designed and crafted devices which offer DAB/DAB+, Internet Radio, Spotify Connect and Amazon music streaming services, as well as a larger product category, the Loewe klang s3, that will also include a CD player.

In response to the move, Matthias Claus, Director of Audio at Loewe added: “Loewe wanted to create a product line to allow users to experience the benefits of the growing SmartRadio product category. We needed a strong partner who could deliver on the reliability that our customers expect from the Loewe brand. Selecting Frontier and the Venice X platform has allowed us to create a stunning product line that will deliver quality, choice and reliability to radio listeners.”
