"The Hudson" Premium Solid Wood Bluetooth Speaker
The wood we use in our speakers is called "old growth" timber, which grew over 300 years ago in a pristine environment. This resulted in wood that is stronger, denser, and tighter-grained than the timber of today—which is what gives our speakers their unrivaled tone and unmatched beauty.
A Forgotten Treasure
Beginning in the booming 1800s, Ottawa waterways were used to transport countless fresh-cut timber from forests to sawmills. Many of these old-growth logs were so dense that they sank along their voyage. Long forgotten, this “Riverwood” has been perfectly preserved at the bottom of the mighty Ottawa River for well over a century.
Riverwood Acoustics employs local eco-divers to retrieve this lost treasure from the depths of the Ottawa River. Responsibly sourcing our wood reduces our impact on deforestation today while honoring our history and contributing to our local economy using green thinking. We are the proud recipient of the Ottawa Network's 2018 Bootstrap Green Award.
Ask any musician and they'll tell you: wood is simply unmatched when compared to other materials in terms of acoustics. Wood matters. Density imparts tone. The Hudson is heavy (at 9.5 pounds). We've painstakingly engineered The Hudson to take full advantage of the tonal quality of this riverwood and have achieved a state of awesome we can confidently claim is unrivaled.
Small Footprint. Big Sound.
The Hudson packs a punch. It's small enough to fit on your mantel, end table, shelf or counter, and loud enough to fill a big room with incredibly warm, rich tone that will amaze all within earshot.
