Technology.am (July 17, 2009) — Bose introduced the SoundLink(TM) wireless music system, a one-piece portable speaker system that allows users to play music from their computer — wirelessly — in and around the home.
This system is designed for those people who don’t want to be at their computer to listen music stored on their computer. No software or Wi-Fi connection is required. Just plug the included SoundLink(TM) USB key into the computer, select music — from iTunes(R), Pandora(R), or any other Internet radio or music source — and the audio will stream to the SoundLink(TM) system via a long-range wireless link that works through most walls and floors.
The speaker unit itself is normally powered but has a lithium-ion battery that should last for about three hours of playback at full volume and more at reduced levels. An IR remote talks to the speaker to send universal play and skip commands as well as adjust local volume.
The SoundLink(TM) system features an auxiliary input for connecting additional audio sources, including an iPod, iPhone, MP3 player or CD player.
This system comes in Gloss Black, and will be available from Bose beginning August 27, 2009, for a price of $549.95.
