Parrot has released a new colored range of its stereo speakers Zikmu by Philippe Starck – White Arctic, Grey Pearl and Lime Sorbet — in addition to a new Web interface and software update.
The state-of-the-art technology and the pure sound of the Zikmu take another dimension with the new, color collection: the elegance of Black, the purity of White, the sobriety of Grey and the fancy of Yellow, magnified by the smart and aerial design from Philippe Starck.
“With Zikmu, we created a beautiful and a unique object for listening to music with today's digital devices,” explains Henri Seydoux, founder of Parrot. “With the Zikmu collection, we pursue the idea of a high-tech product which is part of everyday life, similar to a piece of furniture or a decorative object. You choose it because you like it, because you will live well with it.”
In addition to new colors, Parrot's software update includes a new Web interface with browsing mode to select music in the iPod. Also, an equalizer offers pre-settings according to the chosen music themes. With every Parrot product, including Zikmu, the company offers free software updates at www.parrot.com to improve customer experience.
Parrot Zikmu by Starck offers a 360° immersive sound and crystal clear sound image, thanks to the NXT technology and control of all electrodynamic elements via a system of DSP processing and amplifiers.
With Parrot Zikmu, listeners can enjoy music from today's digital devices:
- iPod/iPhone via a dedicated docking station
- PC, with audio streaming via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
- Mac computers and Bluetooth mobile phones, with audio streaming via Bluetooth® Stereo (A2DP)
Furthermore, an RCA line-in enables Parrot Zikmu to be connected to a television for home theater entertainment.
Zikmu in Color is available now for $1,600.
