The novelty is suitable for horizontal and vertical installation, and can be installed in the wall without visible cables. “Traditional 230-volt dual socket outlets can be converted into a versatile radio in a very short time,” the company said in an announcement of a new product. “Thanks to this, it can also be used in older installations and in areas lacking space. For example, a circuit breaker can be connected to the radio via an auxiliary input of external switches and thus be turned on or off in parallel. A complete set is available, which includes Recessed speaker plus radio, for standard wiring box installation.
The kit consists of a portable streaming radio mechanism for DAB + and FM reception, for music playback via Bluetooth, an antenna, and also a recessed speaker. The kit must be housed in a double Merten System-M frame. Frames are available in various design variations and colors, from a simple white plastic design to glass frames. Installation depth is 29mm, more details art paper.
