A new high-end speaker codenamed Optimo 2 is being produced by Sonos, according to a report Wednesday from The Verge, which purportedly viewed early stage images of the device.

The report describes the Optimo 2 as a “substantial evolution” in design compared to existing products made by the audio company, and says it is supposed to be “the best-sounding speaker that Sonos has ever produced” due to being able to play sound in nearly all directions.

People familiar with product plans told The Verge that the Optimo 2 has double the amount of RAM and up to eight times greater flash memory than any prior Sonos speakers, according to The Verge. The report said the Optimo 2 is poised to become the “swiss army knife of Sonos speakers.”

Sonos could not immediately be reached for comment.
