I’ve set the Sound Blaster Wireless Rock Speaker up at my home and my friends can’t believe that such great-sounding music is coming from a speaker that they thought was a rock
Milpitas, CA (Vocus) July 19, 2010
Creative, a worldwide leader in digital entertainment products, today announced availability of the Sound Blaster Wireless Rock Speaker, the latest addition to the Sound Blaster Wireless family of products, designed to be placed outside bringing the music playing from a Creative whole-home wireless audio system outside. The Sound Blaster Wireless Rock Speaker is a high-quality stereo speaker encased in a granite-rock like exterior, which complements any landscape. The Sound Blaster Wireless Rock Speaker is designed to withstand moderate weather conditions so it doesn’t have to be brought in every time it rains.
“I’ve set the Sound Blaster Wireless Rock Speaker up at my home and my friends can’t believe that such great-sounding music is coming from a speaker that they thought was a rock,” said Steve Erickson, VP and GM of audio at Creative. “It’s such a fun addition to the party because the music is playing from right outside by the pool and patio and it’s totally wireless, so I haven’t had to install any systems in my yard to get music.”
The Sound Blaster Wireless Rock Speaker works with the Sound Blaster Wireless USB audio system, which is available separately at http://www.us.creative.com. The Sound Blaster Wireless audio system is incredibly easy to use; simply plug it into a USB port on any desktop, notebook, netbook or laptop and instantly begin wirelessly streaming from iTunes, Pandora or any other music application. Now with the Sound Blaster Wireless Rock Speaker, music can be heard from your PC outside, up to 100 feet away. Absolutely no cables or network configuration are required.
The Sound Blaster Wireless Rock Speaker is powered by a removable rechargeable battery, which delivers up to six hours of continuous music playback. The battery recharges through a separate powered charging cradle, which is included. The battery plugs easily into the back of the speaker, so the speaker does not have to be moved in order to be charged.
