Porto Go iPod speakers
Scandinavian company Audio Pro has begun shipping the leather-wrapped Porto Go portable loudspeaker iPod dock, which is now offered at retailers such as Easyishop.co.uk. The Porto Go serves as an iPod dock, but a 3.5mm stereo jack is also provided for connecting computers or other devices. Two 1.5 inch tweeters provide the stereo sound, while a single 4.5 inch woofer drives the low end sound. The company claims a frequency response of 58Hz to 20,000KHz, and a sound pressure level of 100dB.
Users can connect the Porto Go using a 12V DC input, or use six D-size alkaline batteries for portable playing. The battery life is claimed to be 20 to 24 hours. The Porto Go is available now, in black, white, or red color variants, with a suggested price of £120 (~$190 USD).
