Monitor Audio has just recently announced a new Apple AirPlay enabled powered speaker, named the Airstream S300. The new S300 is a 150W compact and portable wireless stereo speaker system that can accept music streamed via computer, smart phone or tablet
Via a Wi-Fi network the S300 can stream uncompressed audio from iTunes, Spotify, Last.FM, YouTube and other Apps installed on computer, smartphone or tablet. With the S300’s Airplay Direct feature, any i-device can easily be connected, even without a Wi-Fi network.
The S300 has an enclousre made of acoustically ideal mineralized polymer and comes in a choice of white or charcoal grey finishes. The curvy lines and glass end trims provide a stylish expression for easy integration in virtually any living environment.
The S300 incorporates a precision-calibrated two-way audio system comprising four advanced DSP-controlled amplifiers driving four C-CAM speakers, configured in stereo pairs of bass units and tweeters. Signal paths are digital to the S300’s high resolution 24 bit DACs. The system’s in-room response is enhanced by Monitor Audio’s innovative APC (Automatic Position Correction), which compensates for boundary effects and room acoustics.
The S300’s has been designed in a compact self-contained form to allow it to be placed virtually anywhere – including to any wall using the integrated mounting and Monitor Audio’s Universal Wall Bracket (UWB).
