Soundcast Systems, developer and manufacturer of high-performance wireless music systems, has introduced Melody, its newest, compact omni-directional Bluetooth wireless speaker system with a fresh new modern look and styling.
At only 9 lbs., Melody is designed to be portable. It features a water- and UV-resistant, all-weather plastic enclosure, high-capacity (20 hours of uninterrupted use) internal rechargeable battery, and built-in carrying handle.
The product’s acoustic design involves multiple speakers and woofers radiating sound equally—four bass radiators and four high-performance, full-range speakers that play in an omnidirectional manner so that everyone can enjoy the music.
The system is outfitted with the latest v3.0 Bluetooth and AAC/Apt-X lossless quality codecs for connecting, via Bluetooth, to a smartphone, tablet, iPad, iPod, iPod Touch, or PC. Melody also includes a 3.5mm input port.
A top-mounted keypad controls enables changes to tracks, volume adjustments, and access to play/pause/track control commands.
“I could not be more pleased with the way Melody looks, sounds, and performs,” Soundcast president Mike Weaver stated. “The Soundcast team achieved a new benchmark in design sophistication and elegance on par with our legendary wireless audio performance. Melody is certain to be a game changer for our brand.”
The compact speaker system includes an A/C adapter, 12-volt automotive adapter, and USB charging cable for flexible charging options.
Melody is available now in the U.S. at the retail-selling price of $449 U.S. Its international release will follow in July 2013.
