According to Totem, the KIN Play is more than just another Bluetooth speaker. Contrary to what many audiophiles want to believe, Bluetooth connectivity has a broad appeal. Furthermore, these new speakers are sporting version 4.1 with aptX and aptX HD for up to 16 bits/48 kHz. However, for those that require a hardwired connection, you can also use the TOSLINK optical (24bit/192 kHz) and analogue inputs.

The analogue input has a selector switch to choose between an ordinary line input and phono for MM turntable cartridges. Bass-heads can also add a subwoofer via the Sub output.
