Asus Releases Air3 High Definition Speakers for iPod with Internet Radio
      #32254 - 12/29/08 04:22 PM

ASUS today launched the new ASUS AIR3, which integrates an iPod speaker with Internet radio combination. A stylish design envelopes the HDSS (High Definition Sound Standard) certified speakers, and the ETL (Embedded Transmission Line) module within the chambers provide natural, real and clear sound quality. Here is more info on the iPod speakers:

Superior Audio Enjoyment with HDSS ETL Certified Speakers
The AIR3 is equipped with HDSS certified speakers with embedded ETL modules. The ETL module is a physical structure inside the chambers that reorganizes sound energy to reduce the disruptive vibration that would otherwise make listeners feel fatigued and uncomfortable. With ETL, the AIR3 is able to deliver audio relaxation to users with pristine clarity. Besides adopting the ETL module in the chamber design, the AIR3 also utilizes a TI (Texas Instruments) class-D audio power amplifier TPA3120D2 to deliver perfect sounds, delivering cinematic audio reproduction for a home entertainment experience that is truly relaxing.

Multi-functions to Fulfill All Audio Needs

-Speakers for iPod
The AIR3 is compatible with all iPods (except iPod shuffle) through its HDSS speakers, and charges the iPod concurrently while playing audio files. Also, the video and image files in the connected iPod can be displayed on TVs and LCD monitors connected (via S-Video and composite video) to the AIR3.

-Internet Radio
Internet radio provides users with music and news from around the world. Connecting to the Internet via a wired or wireless network, users can tune in to more than 10,000 radio stations worldwide. Users can choose from a wide range of categories, all simplified and categorized into their respective genres for easy listening.

-UPnP Sharing
By placing the AIR3 and PCs on the same network; and utilizing an UPnP-enabled application such as Windows? Media Player 11, audio files can be accessed and streamed via the AIR3. This not only provides users with an easily accessible playlist of music, but also allows for easy sharing of music with connected computer or users.

Multimedia players can be connected to the AIR3 via an Aux-In jack located at the back of the AIR3 and the bundled cable. With the flexibility to connect other audio devices to the AIR3, users can then enjoy high definition music via the AIR3?s speakers for maximum entertainment.

-Weather Forecast
The AIR3 provides weather forecasts for major cities around the world via the Internet, providing users with up-to-date reports on weather developments prior to making travel plans for leisure or business.
