XtremeMac's Tango TRX takes wireless audio from iPhone, iPad

XtremeMac Tango TRX speaker arrives with wireless

XtremeMac on Tuesday put out an uncommon wireless speaker system tailored expressly for the iPad, iPod touch and iPhone. The Tango TRX is at its heart a 2.1-channel speaker dock but uses a universal iOS app (free, App Store) to send audio wirelessly over Bluetooth. Its design both mimics the physical remote's controls and has an EQ to adjust the tone of the sound to a particular style.

The accessory maker hasn't described the power of the system, but it includes a dock to take audio directly from a given player; a special Apple Store version, the TRX D, has a separate charging dock that can power the source device while it streams music. A line-in jack provides an avenue for other devices to use the system. Although not mentioned, XtremeMac's speakers are likely to support A2DP and work wirelessly with other Bluetooth audio players, albeit without the native companion app.

Either Tango TRX variant will be available later today. The core version will cost $180, and the Apple-exclusive version's dock raises the price to $200.

    Is it just me....

    Is it just me.... Or does Bluetooth stink as far as sound quality goes. I have a Plantronics voyager stereo headset that is just ok for voice and bad for music. Streaming Bluetooth music just isn't anywhere near wired quality, even for non audiophile mortals.

    Am I just unlucky or is this common experience?

    There always seems to be some complaint

    that car audio systems that use BT audio quality isn't very high quality. Yet there seemed to be so many individuals that were always moaning about such and such a device didn't pair with BT headphones and such. Who the h*** knows? You'd have to try it and see if you like it. I know Sennheiser was selling some supposedly very high-quality BT headphones with lots of features. It seems as though high quality wireless BT tech can be had as long as you pay enough money. Maybe it's just the cheaper stuff that sucks.
