Slim Devices Transporter
Slim Devices today introduced Transporter, an advanced networked audio system designed for audiophiles and music lovers. The company claims that Transporter's sound quality surpasses that of even the most sophisticated high-end compact disc players and says it offers a broad range of options not available on any CD player, including thousands of Internet radio stations, Pandora's personalized music service and Rhapsody's two-million track collection of online music. Transporter can be used to listen to an entire music collection, regardless of whether it was originally downloaded on their PC or purchased on CD. The $2,000 device is expected to ship in mid-September. Pre-orders are being accepted now for models with either black or clear anodized finishes.
"Slim Devices' Squeezebox products have long been respected for high sound quality among networked audio systems," said Sean Adams, the CEO and founder of Slim Devices. "With Transporter, we set out to design an even better system by incorporating ideas both from the audiophile community and specialist engineers from around the globe. Transporter is designed not merely to rival traditional high-end sources, but to surpass them in both subjective and quantifiable performance."
Any order placed before the ship date will receive a free Squeezebox, an ideal solution for customers who wish to listen to their digital music in more than one room.
