The UNIT-4 Wireless + has a few unique selling points depending on the user — if you enjoy a wireless setup throughout, this provides complete freedom from audio and power. It’s powered by a battery pack that is rechargeable and will allow 20+ hours of playback time. However, there are options to plug in all wires if that is your preferred option.

It includes a two-way active monitor with a precision tonal accuracy of flat +/-2dB frequency response from 50Hz to 20kHz and is also tuned to have a clean bass extension down to 40Hz from its design.
