XtremeMac debuts Tango
today launched a new addition to its growing line of audio products, a high-end sound system dubbed Tango. The speaker system is designed to deliver high quality audio output from any Dock connector iPod, and offers audio/video output for integrating the iPod into a home entertainment system. The full-featured 2.1 speaker system offers a trio of powerful speakers, including a downward-firing subwoofer, which provides deep powerful bass and crisp, clear vocals. A sound stabilizer provides grip on most surfaces so that bass vibrations do not cause the unit to shift.
Tango can also be connected to a TV or home entertainment center for watching video content from iPods with video capabilities, via the built in 3.5 mm audio/video line out jack. The iPod's menus and functions can be navigated from the iPod itself or from across the room with the included wireless infrared remote. The unit also charges the iPod as it plays for unlimited playtime.
"Tango is the newest member of our growing line of audio products for iPod," said Gary Bart, CEO of XtremeMac. "Our goal was to deliver phenomenal sound quality at any volume level, giving our customers the most flexibility in the way they use Tango, and we have succeeded in doing that."
XtremeMac will display prototypes of the new system to consumers and press at the Expo next week in San Francisco next week. Tango carries a suggested retail price of $200 and is expected to ship by the end of March 2006.
