Polk Audio just announced their first tabletop streaming audio speaker that works with AirPlay or Bluetooth, as well as wired connections. The new Woodbourne Wireless Speaker System combines two 5-1/4″-inch mineral filled injection molded PP cone mid-woofers with rubber surrounds and two 1″ silk dome tweeters. The built-in 180-Watt RMS (70 x 2 and 20 x 2) high performance audio amplifier delivers clear, detailed sonics throughout the audio spectrum with near-zero distortion, for room-filling sound.
