ASUS has announced the launch of their first multimedia speaker series, called uBoom, with two models – uBoom and uBoom Q sound-bar – designed to provide superior audio entertainment to the users.

Taipei, Taiwan, August 21, 2009 – ASUS is proud to announce the launch of its first ever multimedia speaker series. The ASUS uBoom and uBoom Q sound-bar speakers are designed to provide high fidelity audio and heart-thumping bass via a maze-like reflex port, which is then channeled through speakers designed to place the user in the audio sweet-spot. For added convenience and mobility, both the ASUS uBoom and uBoom Q sound-bar speakers feature USB 2.0 connectivity for audio output. The uBoom Q also draws its power via the USB 2.0 port, effectively eliminating the need for an adapter and the numerous wires often associated with conventional speaker set-ups and providing high fidelity audio reproduction while on-the-move.

Clutter-free High-fidelity Audio Entertainment and Power via USB 2.0
Both the ASUS uBoom and uBoom Q sound-bar speakers are designed to bring ease-of-use and convenience to users while on-the-move. 50% smaller than conventional 2.1 speaker set-ups, the ASUS uBoom and uBoom Q sound-bar speakers connect directly to the back of the notebook via USB 2.0.

The ASUS uBoom Q also draws its power from the same USB 2.0 port, effectively eliminating the need for a power adapter, wires and cables, further reinforcing its mobile audio entertainment capabilities.
