Also coming is a new Dolby Atmos soundbar.
Called the e klang mr series, the new audio range consists of three multiroom speakers, and a new smart home speaker.
The klang mr range comes in three different sizes which have been described as “elegant and no-nonsense” wireless speakers.
Multi-room functionality is delivered by the introduction of the DTS Play-Fi wireless audio ecosystem, as well as Apple AirPlay 2.
The range starts at 30-watt output with the smaller speakers described as also being “perfect” to be used as rears for a klang 5 soundbar that is due next year in Australia.
There is also the Loewe klang mr3 ‘bookshelf’ speaker that has a subwoofer and two passive radiators and three range drivers, this speaker delivers 150 watts of power.

Loewe klang mr1, mr3 and mr5
Loewe says that the klang s-series is first and foremost a smart radio – and take note, the line has already won both the Red Dot and if Design Awards this year.
The design is very European with straight lines, a slim silhouette and brushed aluminium casework (available in either a basalt or light grey finish) which some observers claim harks back to a more classic era of hi-fi audio.
Both products have powerful connected capabilities including Bluetooth wireless streaming, USB input, internet, FM, and DAB/DAB+ radio, plus Spotify Connect and embedded streaming services including Deezer and Amazon Music.
And in a throwback to the past the s3 includes a CD player allowing listeners who have held onto their CD audio collection to now be able to play the uncompressed audio on a Loewe speaker.
Boasting a large and easy-to-read display for your chosen content, the klang s1 and klang s3 can be controlled either using the included remote or via the Loewe Radio app – where you can install streaming services and create playlists.
Pricing for Australia is: mr1klang $699, mr 3 $899.
The mr 5 klang is $1149.
