LAS VEGAS, Nevada - Russound's new AirGo Outdoor Sound Station (SRP: $399.99) is the first portable, weather-resistant, amplified speaker dock for use with Apple AirPort Express.
Russound’s AirGo can be placed outside on a deck, on a lawn, in the driveway or anywhere a listener wants to hear great sounding music. With the AirPort Express and AirPlay, the music from an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac or PC fills the air with full range sound quality. In addition, users can stream music from iTunes, Pandora or any other music service.
True to form, Russound’s AirGo Outdoor is weather resistant. Comments Russound CEO Charlie Porritt: “If you’re dancing in the yard and the rain begins to fall, break out the Slip-‘N-SlideÆ and continue to rock on.”
Installation and setup is simple. Users only need to configure the AirPort Express and install it into the AirGo Outdoor’s protective pocket before plugging it into an outlet and enjoying great sounding music.
The internal stereo speaker and specially designed power amplifier deliver a wide, detailed soundstage that will impress in any setting - from patios and decks to dorm rooms and offices.
In addition to providing high performance audio outdoors, AirGo offers the added advantage of serving as a portable Wi-Fi hotspot, thanks to the Apple AirPort Express and its ability to serve as a Wi-Fi repeater.
“The concept of portable, streaming audio takes a quantum leap forward with AirGo,” adds Porritt.
The AirGo Outdoor Sound Station measures 12.6” (H) x 12.9” (W) x 10.2” (D), and weighs 16.25 lbs. Power is supplied by the AC cord, conveniently stored for easy access onboard the AirGo. The AirGo Outdoor Sound Station is UL Certified for use in outdoor environments.
The AirGo Outdoor Sound Station is now shipping with a suggested retail price of $399, and it’s available from mainstream outlets such as Amazon, Best Buy.com, and Crutchfield as well as the wide world of CE and CI specialists. No matter what the time of year, Russound’s AirGo is rocking the great outdoors!
Russound will hold daily demonstrations of its new AirGo Outdoor Sound Station in the company’s suite at the Renaissance Hotel during the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show from 1 PM – 6 PM only.
