When the news broke in July that Braun Audio's speaker line was making a comeback, pretty much everyone at Engadget was immediately hooked. Thanks to a deal with Proctor & Gamble, Pure Audio now has the rights to the iconic speaker name. While many of us expected a similar aesthetic to the Dieter Rams-designed devices from 1959, Pure is taking a decidedly modern approach with the revival of the LE line. They still have a minimalist look, but have been entirely redesigned both inside and out. This means that all the modern features are along for the ride. And it means the company is taking direct aim at Sonos.

The new speaker that most resembles those classic designs is the LE03. That's pretty much because it's square. It can also be mounted on a stand (either floor or tabletop) in a similar fashion to those previous speakers (in fact, the whole lineup can). And here is where the similarities end, at least design-wise. The larger LE01 and LE02 units are both rectangular, and can be used in either horizontal or vertical orientations. All three have rounded corners where the Rams designs were unabashedly boxy. There is a minimalist look to them, save for the LED indicators in the top right corner of each. The new LE line is also wrapped in an aluminum frame for both the black and white color options. These are meant to be "eye-catching without being intrusive," and for the most part Pure succeeds.

Tate Modern: Boy Who Fell Has Undergone Two ‘Long And Difficult’ Operations, Parents Reveal

Tate Modern: Boy Who Fell Has Undergone Two ‘Long And Difficult’ Operations, Parents Reveal The six-year-old boy who fell five storeys from the Tate Modern has had “two long and difficult operations” but the full extent of his injuries is not yet known, his parents have said. The child, who was visiting from France, suffered injuries including a brain bleed and spinal, leg and arm fractures after being allegedly thrown by a 17-year-old boy from a 10th-floor viewing platform at the art gallery on August 4. His parents issued a statement to the organiser of a fundraising page set up on their behalf which has received donations of almost £45,000. They said: “Our son has already undergone two long and difficult operations.

A few years ago, the FTC decided not to pursue an antitrust lawsuit against Google despite finding that its search algorithm really was biased. Now, we finally know the details of that lengthy investigation, thanks to a report written by FTC staffers that recently surfaced due to an open-records request.

Like Sonos gear (well, until this week), the new Braun LE speakers are wireless, but they're not portable. They have to remain plugged in for you to use them. In terms of connectivity, Bluetooth 4.2 with AAC and WiFi are both on board. The latter allows you to use handy features like AirPlay 2, Chromecast built-in and Spotify Connect to beam music, podcasts and more to each of these speakers. WiFi also enables these to be used as a multiroom solution, which you can manage through Braun's software or with the Google Home app.

Voice control is part of the features list as well, as Google Assistant is here to handle your spoken commands and queries. An array of four beam-forming microphones handle both far-field voice recognition and acoustic echo cancellation. All of these wireless connectivity features are available on all three speakers, so you aren't forced to settle for a certain size if you want voice control and other tools.

While there is a Braun app for setup, control and tweaking EQ settings, each of the LE speakers has physical controls as well. There are buttons for actions, play/pause, skipping tracks, volume and Bluetooth pairing. Like many smart speakers these days, there's also a dedicated control for turning off the microphones. When they're disabled, the otherwise white LEDs on the front turn orange, as does the mute button itself. This way you know at a glance if the speaker is listening for your cues. Around back, there's a 3.5mm aux jack if you need to make use of a wired connection.

The main difference between the three units is both size and power. At the top with the pricey LE01, two 5.25-inch aluminum cone woofers, three 2.5-inch radiator drive units, two quadratic 8 x 4.5 inch passive bass radiators and three class-D power amplifiers. With the smallest speaker, the LE03, there's basically one of each of those, and the mid-size LE02 is in between the two. A 32-bit ARM multi-core digital signal processor is on all three models to help with "high accuracy and low noise," and the trio is capable of 96kHz/24-bit audio streaming. If you want to buy two of any of these models, you can use them as a stereo pair with dedicated left and right channels.

The demo room here at IFA was set up in a mostly concrete loft, so it wasn't ideal for making any final judgements on overall sound quality due to the echo. However, based on a few minutes of listening time, I can tell you the audio on the new LE series is very crisp and clear. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by the clarity. Instruments all stand on their own without being condensed down to a single blob of sound. And because of that, there's dimensionality to the audio that a lot of wireless multiroom speakers don't do well. The Braun LE series also has nice bass for standalone speakers -- the radiators for the low-end tone do their job well. Overall, the revival of Braun Audio makes a good first impression, but it's too early to say if they outperform Sonos without further testing. And I'm sure a lot of people won't be happy with the updated design.

The Braun LE series is set to arrive in October in both black and white color options. The largest unit, the LE01 will cost $1,199 (£1099/€1,199) while the mid-size LE02 will be $799 (£749/€799). The smaller, square LE03 is the most affordable of the group at $379 (£349/€379). As a comparison, the Sonos One is $199 and the Play:5, which most closely lines up with the LE02, is $499. In other words, if the audio turns out to be comparable to Sonos with these Braun speakers, you're paying a premium for the brand and its heritage. Again, that's something we'll have to test when we're able to review them.

How Amazon’s new Echos compare to other smart speakers

  How Amazon’s new Echos compare to other smart speakers Amazon vs. Apple vs. Google vs. SonosIf you want the best Echo speaker for music, the $199.99 Echo Studio is the one Amazon wants you to buy. It’s got five drivers — a 1-inch tweeter, three 2-inch midrange speakers, and a 5.25-inch woofer — which should be able to show off Amazon Music HD, Amazon’s new music streaming tier that offers lossless streaming. It also supports “3D audio” for the few tracks that support it, utilizing formats like Dolby Atmos and Sony 360 Reality Audio. New to the Echo lineup (but not Amazon’s competitors) is the Echo Studio’s ability to automatically tune its output for the room it’s in.

Inside Modern Warfare: Exploring Piccadilly, The Embassy, and Urzikstan with Infinity Ward's Taylor Kurosaki .
Infinity Ward is playing within fictional borders, but does that mean Modern Warfare is free to mirror the real world without acknowledgment?Kelly was keen to note that Infinity Ward "didn't try to be sensational" with the subject matter, and that the studio had to draw its own line throughout development in service of that. That was always going to be a challenge for Infinity Ward due to its insistence on splitting Modern Warfare's action between real and fictional locations; its insistence on drawing inspiration from real atrocities to create a tight campaign of spectacular action.
