Russound has introduced the AirGo Outdoor Sound Station, a portable, weather-resistant, amplified speaker dock for use with Apple AirPort Express.
The AirGo Outdoor Sound Station.
Russound’s AirGo Outdoor is weather resistant. AirGo can be placed outside on a deck, on a lawn, in the driveway or anywhere a listener wants to hear music. With the AirPort Express and AirPlay, the music from an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac or PC fills the air with full range sound quality. In addition, users can stream music from iTunes, Pandora or any other music service.
“If you’re dancing in the yard and the rain begins to fall, break out the Slip-‘N-Slide and continue to rock on,” said Russound CEO, Charlie Porritt.
Installation and setup is simple. Users only need to configure the AirPort express and install it into the AirGo Outdoor’s protective pocket before plugging it into an outlet.
In addition to providing high performance audio outdoors, AirGo offers the added advantage of serving as a portable Wi-Fi hotspot, thanks to the Apple AirPort Express and its ability to serve as a Wi-Fi repeater.
“The concept of portable, streaming audio takes a quantum leap forward with AirGo,” Porritt said.
The AirGo Outdoor Sound Station measures 12.6-inch (H) x 12.9-inch (W) x 10.2-inch (D), and weighs 16.25 lbs. Power is supplied by the AC cord, conveniently stored for easy access onboard the AirGo. The AirGo Outdoor Sound Station is UL Certified for use in outdoor environments.
