Creative has announced their new Inspire S2 wireless speaker system that features a plug-and-play Bluetooth transmitter for wireless music playback to laptops and other mobile devices.
Creative introduces Inspire S2 Wireless Speaker System with High Performance apt-X Audio Codec for Superior Bluetooth Stereo Transmission from Any USB Notebook or Compatible Bluetooth Device
SINGAPORE – 30 September 2009 – Creative Technology Ltd. today announced the Creative Inspire S2 Wireless, a compact speaker system which grants users wireless music freedom for new generation compact notebooks, PCs or mobile devices with wireless music playback via its built-in wireless receiver or any notebook or PC with a USB port by means of a plug and play USB Bluetooth transmitter. Users can also play and control music on the Creative Inspire S2 Wireless speaker system from other Bluetooth-enabled devices anywhere within a maximum range of 10 metres*.
The Creative Inspire S2 Wireless speaker system continues to retain the Creative Inspire tradition of “best in class” performance, this time with superior wireless playback for unrivalled performance. Incorporating apt-X® technology, the high-performance audio codec from APTX, the Creative Inspire S2 Wireless speaker system provides Bluetooth transmission with minimum delay and outstanding sound quality. It also possesses a compact form factor, minimising its footprint without any compromise on component and sound quality, ideal for discerning users who shy away from bulky or low-grade speaker systems. With each palm-sized satellite speaker measuring a mere 7.4cm x 7.3cm x 10.3cm, the Creative Inspire S2 Wireless speaker system blends perfectly into small spaces, making it the perfect companion for notebooks, PCs or mobile devices.
High performance is a key attribute of the Creative Inspire S2 Wireless speaker system. The satellite speakers feature dynamic 2” drivers that emit well-balanced audio, and the new Creative DIRECT-THROW subwoofer brings music and entertainment to vivid levels by delivering clean and heart-thumping mid-bass straight to the user. The highly-efficient front driver/rear-firing port tube design utilises acoustic boundary coupling to greatly increase the bass output, ensuring that most of the usable bass energy from the subwoofer reaches the listener. A convenient control knob on the subwoofer allows the bass level to be easily adjusted to suit personal preferences or room conditions.
The Creative Inspire S2 Wireless speaker system comes with a digital volume control conveniently located on the right satellite speaker, and an AUX-In input for connecting to notebooks, PCs, or portable media devices. A Headphone-Out connection caters to private listening. A dual-coloured LED on the right satellite speaker provides easy indication of speaker status.
