Audio Pro announced the Allroom Air One, a single stereo speaker that combines the latest wireless audio technology with modern leather-covered Scandinavian style. The speaker allows users to stream their music wirelessly over a network using a Mac / PC with iTunes (with Mac OS X Mountain Lion, or use AirPlay with any music service) or any iOS device. Windows and Android users are also catered for, as Allroom Air One is fully compatible with DNLA wireless technology. Additionally, Audio Pro’s ‘Direct Link’ feature allows for users without a wireless network to stream direct from their hand held device or computer, which is ideal for those who want to take their music away with them.
Audio Pro claims to specialize in getting great sound and bass in abundance from compact enclosures. Utilizing four drivers (2 × 1” soft dome tweeters and 2 × 4.5” bass units) driven by a 100W amplifier (4 × 25W Class D amplifiers) under the command of sophisticated DSP (Digital Sound Processor), the company says the Air One will add a physical, room-filling dimension to the sound from all sources. If additional bass reinforcement is required, users can connect a powered subwoofer.
As well as being a premium AirPlay speaker, Allroom Air One can also be used as a stand-alone speaker or as part of an Audio Pro multi-room audio system, additional sources can be connected via USB, analogue 3.5mm and optical digital TOSLINK inputs. Designed to be a family sound system, Allroom Air One will enhance the audio performance of any portable device and give the HDTV sound to match the picture quality. Remote control over volume/track/play/pause is simple from the tactile handset supplied. Greater access to functionality and setup is available through the Audio Pro iOS app, available through the App Store.
