by on Jul.17, 2009, under Gadgets, News, Technology

Bose has launched it’s new SoundLink system, designed as a simple solution for people who listen to music stored on their computer, but don’t want to be at their computer to enjoy it.

Bose SoundLink Wireless Music System

Setup is quite easy. No software or Wi-Fi connection is required. Just plug the included SoundLink USB key into the computer, select music — from iTunes®, Pandora®, or any other Internet radio or music source — and the audio will stream to the SoundLink system via a long-range wireless link that works through most walls and floors.

The Bose SoundLink system unlocks that music, streaming it almost anywhere in the home –- even outside –- quickly and easily.

For added flexibility, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery is included, making the SoundLink wireless music system truly portable. It’s charged by the system’s AC power supply — no outlet is required. The battery provides all the power the system needs for up to three hours when played at full volume or for longer periods at more moderate listening levels.

The SoundLink system features a proprietary acoustics package, which combines exclusive Bose waveguide speaker technology and neodymium transducers to deliver room-filling, high-quality audio from a very small enclosure.

The system’s infrared remote control operates the power and volume, and can send transport control commands to most applications, allowing users to skip tracks or play/pause from a distance. Touch-sensitive volume buttons also are located on the unit itself.
