Boostaroo Revolution

UpBeat Audio's new lets users listen to digital music or movies in 3-D surround sound on-the-go. At six ounces, and the size of a disposable lighter, the UpBeat says the Revolution is the market's smallest portable amplifier and two-way splitter. It can be plugged into any flavor of iPod, including the Nano, plus iBooks, PowerBooks or other portable players. It drives up to two sets of high-end headphones (greater than 60 ohms), or mini-speakers, to share tunes or movies. It also quadruples the volume and demultiplexes compressed digital music files and images stereo into high-definition 3-channel surround sound. The $80 Boostaroo Revolution is available immediately for online purchase, and begins hitting the shelves later this month at Dr. Bott,,, Airport Wireless, In Motion, AltiTunes, and Hedonics in Canada.
