About the Syng Cell Alpha (With Table Stand)

Syng Cell Alpha surrounds you with music

At first glance, the Syng Cell Alpha may resemble a futuristic lamp, but it's actually a very cool, technologically innovative speaker. And I'll do you one better: a single Cell Alpha like this one covers a medium-sized room all by itself, and delivers immersive sound that seems to fill the air around you. And you can sync as many as four to play together so you feel like you're living inside each track you play.

At first glance, the Syng Cell Alpha may resemble a futuristic lamp, but it's actually a very cool, technologically innovative speaker. And I'll do you one better: a single Cell Alpha like this one covers a medium-sized room all by itself, and delivers immersive sound that seems to fill the air around you. And you can sync as many as four to play together so you feel like you're living inside each track you play.

I know this, because I heard three Cell Alpha speakers playing in a conference room located at Crutchfield HQ. As my colleagues and I dug deep into our playlists — testing the speakers' facility with classic rock, bass-heavy dance music, and even a small jazz trio — all I could think was, "I desperately want the world's coolest cocktail party to break out right here and now, because nobody in town has a more impressive sound system."

This version of the Cell Alpha comes with a table stand. If you prefer a free-standing configuration, try the Cell Alpha with floor stand (sold separately).

Triphonic technology

In a traditional speaker, most of the sound comes out of the front of a rectangular box, which you aim toward your favorite seat to create a "sweet spot." But what happens when the room is full of people — shouldn't everyone get a shot at being in the sweet spot?

The spherical Cell Alpha employs a secret sauce known as "Triphonic audio," which is meant to evoke a sense of three-dimensional space being filled with music — enveloping all nearby listeners in a cocoon of sound. It's a bold promise, and I can personally attest that this speaker delivers. The speaker uses three separate midrange/tweeter arrays spaced evenly around the middle of its spherical enclosure, with two woofers firing upward and downward in an opposed, force-canceling configuration.

Control your system with a unique mobile app

The Syng Space app offers multi-room source selection and control via your Apple® mobile device. (Android™ support coming soon.) It uses a cool spatial interface that I hadn't seen before. The app creates circles that represent individual speakers or zones, and you can drag and drop the icon for your preferred source — Spotify®, AirPlay, or a source connected to the USB-C ports — into that circle to begin playback. It's an intuitive way to visualize your whole-home layout — you literally "send" your music to the right room.

Directing the sound within your space

That same circular visual interface in the app gives you control over the soundfield within any listening room. Keep your source in the center of the circle for spacious, diffuse sound. Or slide it to different areas within the circle to adjust the way the sound is focused.

About Syng 

Syng founder and CEO Chris Stringer spent 21 years creating iconic designs for Apple, so it's no surprise that his own company's approach to audio is innovative, user-friendly, and visually appealing. Syng aims to create immersive 3D soundscapes with their signature line of triphonic audio products.
