This new ASUS AIR3 is not only an iPod speaker but it also features Internet radio for music lovers who want to listen to their favorite online radio stations. It promises excellent audio quality and best of all, you can stream music to the AIR3 from your PC if both are on the same network.
ASUS has recently launched the new, chic AIR 3 iPod speaker with Internet radio capabilities. Equipped with HDSS (High Definition Sound Standard) certified speakers and ETL (Embedded Transmission Line) module within the chambers, it boasts natural and clear audio quality to satisfy discerning audiophiles.
The AIR3 is compatible with all iPods (except iPod shuffle) and charges the iPod concurrently while playing the music files. You can also playback video and image files that are stored in the iPod and display them on TVs and LCD monitors via an S-Video or composite video connection.
By connecting the AIR3 to the Internet via a wired or wireless network, you can tune in to more than 10,000 radio stations worldwide and choose from a wide range of categories for easy listening. Audio files can also be accessed and streamed via the AIR3 from the PC on the same network using an UPnP-enabled application such as Windows Media Player 11.
