Definitive Technology’s first Bluetooth speaker system, the "Sound Cylinder," to bring high performance sound to tablets and other portable Bluetooth enabled devices. Sound Cylinder's innovative clip system securely attaches the speaker to most tablets and many laptop computers.
According to Definitive Technology's President “due to rapid advances in portable devices such as tablets and smart phones, enjoying music and video content on the go is within the reach of everyone”
Sound Cylinder doubles as a table stand for an attached tablet. A built-in pivoting "kickstand" securely holds the device at an ideal angle for viewing and listening. It connects wirelessly to Bluetooth enabled devices or via an audio cable to any device with an analog audio output jack. The built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 10 hours of high quality listening.
Befitting Definitive's reputation as a leading maker of ultra-high performance component home loudspeakers for discriminating listeners, Sound Cylinder's audio performance is exemplary. It features a built-in side-firing subwoofer in addition to stereo speakers to provide listeners with rich, full-bodied stereo sound wherever they may go. Surround Array image enhancement processing creates a life-like soundstage that extends beyond the compact dimensions of the cylinder.
Sound Cylinder is fabricated with premium materials to achieve a level of attractive appearance, precision fit and luxury finish unusual in portable audio products. The grilles are custom perforated aluminum while the "kickstand" and clamp mechanism parts are injection-molded Magnesium alloy, a costly high-tech material that is incredibly strong yet lightweight.
Sound Cylinder will be available in consumer electronics specialty storefront and on-line retailers as well as Definitive's on-line store in January 2013. The suggested retail price is $199.
