New Alto Active speakers

The new Alto active speakers from Argon are arriving now, and we are getting two models this time: the ALTOA4 and ALTOA5.

The two models are virtually identical, but of course the big model plays louder and deeper. Sound quality is as you know it from the passive ALTO-speakers.


  • 2 x 40 watts class D amp
  • Bluetooth (aptX)
  • 2 x optical input
  • 1 x RCA input
  • 1 x RIAA input (MM) – yes, you can plug in your Argon TT2 directly!
  • 1 x SUB out (L/R)

All inputs except RIAA have auto sense so when you turn on your TV or start playing Bluetooth from your phone, the speakers will turn on automatically. As an added feature, the speakers are born with the ability to be volume controlled (and muted) by Sony and Samsung IR-remotes.
