Monster ClarityHD Katana Wireless Speaker

Monster ClarityHD Katana Wireless Digital Music System

Monster announced a Bluetooth wireless speaker featuring AAC, apt-X and an optional transmitter / receiver kit for multi-room capabilities. The company claims their new ClarityHD Katana Wireless Digital Music System can play louder and lower than anything in its class. The key to Katana’s rich, immersive bass even at lower volumes is Monster’s Dynamic Presence Enhancement which perfects the listening experience at every level. It automatically adjusts balance of your music to match the current listening level. It’s a dynamic processor that maintains the most desirable balance of your music in real time especially at lower listening levels. In addition, thanks to its innovative 3-way, tri-amped speaker design, Katana delivers effortless dynamics for every genre of music. All drivers, electronics and the speaker cabinets have been engineered by Monster from the ground up, with each element carefully selected and tuned for true-to-life music reproduction.

The system’s advanced audio and digital signal processing technologies ensure clean, higher definition wireless sound. Music lovers can finally hear everything their favorite artists intended for them to hear in all their favorite music, from the attack of the strings, horns and percussion instruments, to the emotion in the vocals – all with deep, powerful, yet not overpowering bass, and crystal clear high frequencies.

Users can upgrade Katana’s wireless capabilities with Monster’s optional StreamCast HD Transmitter and Receiver Kit. The StreamCast device connects to a computer and Katana’s StreamCast port and lets users wirelessly stream high-definition music throughout the home. With Monster’s proprietary StreamCast HD system, users can simultaneously enjoy up to four streams of wireless uncompressed high definition music in up to 12 different zones in their home at a distance of up to 100 feet. No Wi-Fi network or Ethernet is required. And thanks to a new Monster App for handheld devices users can enjoy complete control of their system from virtually any tablet, smartphone or digital media player. The StreamCast HD bridge module allows handheld devices to connect to the system via Bluetooth and become an additional stream on the StreamCast HD network.

Katana can be set up easily in just seconds and provides room-filling sound right out of the box. Users enjoy simple and straightforward access to the power button and volume controls.
