60W Bluetooth/USB stereo
Parrot's BOOMBOX is a stereo primarily designed for those who don't need a built-in disc drive. Though it has an RCA jack, the main input is intended to be Bluetooth, whether it comes from a computer, a cellphone or an adapter. Bluetooth 2.0 is supported, as is A2DP stereo, and AVRCP remote control. A built-in decoder translates MP3 or general SBC-type codecs. The most impressive aspect of the stereo may be its satellite power though, which at 60W is greater than many similar products. It is also equipped with a subwoofer and automatic input detection. The BOOMBOX should ship in the second quarter of 2007 for £150 ($294).
