Slim-Profile USB-Powered Speaker Makes It Easy to Enjoy Great Computer Sound
LAS VEGAS, Nevada – Matching the wide spectrum of taste and style of the modern consumer, Edifier today announced the introduction of its ‘Sound To Go’, an ultra compact micro speaker system that combines innovative design with superior sound quality and the convenience of USB-powered operation. Edifier’s sound performance meets the increasingly high standards for audio with this high-quality, portable speaker that stays true to design excellence, uncompromised sound and affordability.
Like all Edifier products, the ‘Sound To Go’ is elegant and distinctive in appearance. It’s sleek and slim in design, with a top that gently tapers towards the back, and a curved front grille. The speaker’s rich, brushed-aluminium finish is accented by its black front grille and sidepieces, for a look that complements any laptop.
Despite its ultra-compact shape, the Edifier ‘Sound To Go’ delivers powerful stereo sound. It features two 3-inch woofers and two 1-inch tweeters, along with a built-in amplifier and a handy volume control. Although it measures just 10-1/2 inches wide by 1-1/2 inches high by 1-3/4 inches deep, the ‘Sound To Go’ delivers clear, expansive stereo sound, thanks to its precision high-quality magnetically shielded drivers and dual subwoofers.
Anthony Wilkinson, senior vice president, Edifier, noted, “As more and more people listen to music, video and movies on their laptops, we realised it was more important than ever to offer a product that lets laptop users enjoy high-quality, full-range sound.
The ‘Sound To Go’ provides greatly improved sound compared to typical built-in laptop speakers, and its slim form factor makes it easy to use and carry in a laptop bag.” The ‘Sound To Go’ connects to a laptop or desktop computer via its USB jack and supplied USB cable, and is powered by the USB connection. No external power adaptor or batteries are required. It can also be powered by a laptop-to-USB power adaptor. The ‘Sound To Go’ can be placed below or alongside a laptop. It also has an auxiliary input, enabling it to be used with a portable music player or virtually any device with an audio output.
The Edifier ‘Sound To Go’ will be available in December 2010 at a suggested retail price of $49.00.
