JBL is shipping the new SoundFly Air AirPlay wireless speaker that plugs directly into a wall outlet. The speaker uses WiFi to connect to your home network wirelessly, and using Apple’s AirPlay technology, it streams music wirelessly from iPhone, iPad or iPod touch as well as Windows PC and Mac running iTunes. As the speaker plugs directly to the wall outlet, you don’t need to find shelf space for it and deal with cables.
The SoundFly Air offers 20 watts of power amplification and features digital signal processing (DSP) with Computer-Optimized Equalization (COE) for a “rich musical soundstage” and Optimized Compression Technology (OCT) to ensure clear, low-distortion sound at high output levels. You can link up to four SoundFly Air speakers for AnyRoom feature to enjoy music everywhere in home.
The SoundFly Air is priced at $199.99. It works with JBL’s free app for browsing music and remote control and adjustment.
