New iPod® Docks From SpeakerCraft
Standalone music systems with impressive fidelity
RIVERSIDE, CA: September 22, 2010 SpeakerCraft, America’s original manufacturer of in-wall speakers announced two personal music systems for the discriminating listener. Although there are a myriad of iPod docks that free the user from the necessity and restrictions of headphones, there are few that truly offer the performance of a dedicated home audio system.
The new systems from the Flo series will be called the FloBox and FloBox Mini. They feature integrated iPod/iPad/iPhone docks, as well as a CD drive on the larger version. Both models also include an FM tuner and a mini USB port allowing for sync with most digital delivery systems including iTunes.
“This project has been very rewarding as we were able to even further advance our focus on audio performance while delivering an aesthetically impressive product for the retail customer.” said Jeff Francisco, SpeakerCraft’s V.P. of Product Development. “We didn’t want to just make noise,” Francisco continued, ”we wanted to make a statement and that is exactly what we have accomplished.”
“There is an entire generation that has missed out on high-performance audio reproduction because of MP3 music delivered through cheap headphones and mediocre electronics,” remarked Jeremy Burkhardt, SpeakerCraft’s President. “We want them to experience a room filled with sound that completely changes there opinion of what music can sound like and that is exactly what the FloBox does.”
The Flobox has a driver compliment of two 3 ½ inch mid-woofers and two ¾ inch dome tweeters supported by a single 5 ¼ inch subwoofer. The FloBox Mini has two 3 inch woofers and two ¾ inch tweeters. The two units will be available in a black, white, silver, red or yellow high-gloss, piano finish to either blend in or stand out in any environment.
