Sharp and Devialet Join Forces to Unleash the SumoBox: A Bass-Heavy Bluetooth Speaker

Sharp, in an unexpected twist, teams up with the high-end audio manufacturer, Devialet, to launch their latest portable Bluetooth speaker. Dubbed the CP-LS100, but affectionately known as the SumoBox, this sleek and weighty sound marvel is here to revolutionize your audio experience with a bass line that hits you like a heavyweight sumo wrestler. Don't worry, no loincloth included!

The SumoBox flaunts a striking design, boasting two 5cm (2-inch) tweeters and two 20cm (8-inch) woofers that deliver an impressive 120W of stereo sound. So, what's Devialet's secret sauce in this audio partnership? Well, Devialet's patented Speaker Active Matching (SAM) technology, complemented by an unvented closed box design, all working harmoniously to provide a bass experience that's both rich and powerful, while keeping distortion at bay.

Connectivity options are abundant, featuring three inputs (2x TRS/XLR combo and one aux in) along with Bluetooth 5.0. What's more, each input supports independent volume level control, ensuring you have complete mastery over your sound. And if you're craving an even more immersive audio encounter, fear not! The SumoBox can be linked with another unit via Duo Mode for True Wireless Stereo playback, or you can go old-school and connect multiple speakers together using good ol' wires in a daisy chain configuration. Need to add some musical flavor to your adventures? Simply plug in a keyboard, microphone, or guitar, and let the SumoBox become your trusty portable amp on the go.

Battery life is a critical factor for any discerning audiophile seeking the perfect Bluetooth boombox companion. Lucky for you, the SumoBox boasts a unique removable and rechargeable Lithium-ion battery pack that grants you up to 10 hours of non-stop playtime. And should you desire to keep the party going uninterrupted, just swap out the battery pack for a fresh one or connect to a mains supply for continuous recharging. It's all about maintaining the rhythm!

Now, let's talk aesthetics. Sharp proudly presents the SumoBox as an industrial black steel grille masterpiece that exudes both functionality and presence. Transporting this beast is a breeze, thanks to the inclusion of silicone corner protectors that keep it safe during travel and allow you to use it as a monitor when placed on its side. Plus, with three handles adorning the top and sides, you have the ultimate flexibility to position the CP-LS100 vertically or horizontally, or even take it out into the great outdoors.

But wait, there's more! Alongside the SumoBox, Sharp has also unleashed the PS-949, a.k.a. the XParty Street Beat, priced at £269 / €279. With its mesmerizing LED wheel lights, strobe synchronisation, and mind-blowing super-bass effect, the XParty is tailor-made for those wild raves and poolside parties where the beats never stop.

Priced at the top tier of the market at £399 / €399, the brand-new Sharp CP-LS100 SumoBox faces the daunting task of competing with the crème de la crème of Bluetooth speakers. If you're eager to experience audio bliss like never before, both these extraordinary Sharp speakers are available now from Euronics, with Amazon availability on the horizon. While our friends Down Under won't be graced with their presence, we eagerly await news on US pricing and availability.
