Introducing the Klipsch LightSpeaker

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010


Have you seen the latest speakers from Klipsch on our showroom floor?  If not, you’re missing out on a bright spot – and I mean that literally.  Abt is proud to carry the Klipsch LightSpeaker, a LED light and a high-quality loudspeaker all-in-one.  The best part is that it installs like a light bulb (which makes for easily installation and uninstallation)!  They fit into most 5” and 6” recessed lighting fixtures or can be adapted, with the LampKit, to be used in common lamps.

The LightSpeaker has a fully dimmable LED bulb that’s rated to last 15 years or more, an amplifier and driver to produce a full-range sound performance, and uses 2.4 ghz wireless technology to deliver music throughout your home wirelessly.  The speaker uses a transmitter to deliver music wirelessly up to 50 feet in any direction, while accepting two different music sources, and establishing two separate listening zones in your home.  Many people are surprised at its clarity and range.

Stop by our store to try the Klipsch LightSpeaker for yourself.  With its energy efficiency, robust audio network, and easy installation, you can’t go wrong with this device.  After you try it out, let us know what you think about it!

Disappearing iPod

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

This year’s CES brought a lot of really cool gadgets. One standout car audio product is the Sony DSX-S100. It is a stereo head unit that makes listening to an iPod on your car stereo a snap.

If you’ve ever seen a car stereo’s faceplate slide down so you can put in a CD, the DSX-S100 works much the same. The face slides off the unit’s base and a tray comes out with a plug. The iPod simply gets plugged into the stereo and then just set the iPod on the slide out tray and you are ready to listen to music.

Look for the DSX-S100 at Abt, sometime next month.

Sonos S5 Freedom

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

 

The Sonos S5 Zone player has arrived. This is a really cool innovation from Sonos. It’s a wireless, one-piece speaker system that works with an iPhone or iPod Touch. Unlike most docking stations, the S5 doesn’t require the iPhone or iPod Touch to be docked in the unit itself.

Sonos took speaker systems to another level with the S5. Controlling the S5 is done from your iPhone or iPod Touch using a downloadable, free app. Set-up is a breeze; all you have to do is search for the new speaker on your iPhone or iPod Touch, press two buttons on the S5, and you are ready to go. By having multiple S5 speaker systems you can play different songs in different rooms or using party mode—play the same song in different rooms.

The S5 gives you the freedom of keeping your iPhone or iPod Touch with you instead of docking it. You can browse through 25,000 free internet stations, millions of songs streaming on the internet, or your entire iTunes library—not just what is stored on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Also, if you receive a text or incoming call while music is playing, it won’t interrupt the music.
