Logitech reveals UE Air Speaker with AirPlay

updated 05:50 am EDT, Tue March 27, 2012

Logitech UE Air Speaker streams uncompressed music

Following an inadvertent pre-listing on Amazon UK's website as far back as October, Logitech has formally unveiled its new UE Air Speaker with AirPlay streaming support. The device supports uncompressed streaming from iTunes, as well as iOS devices connected to home networks. The shelf speaker system creates a large soundstage by employing dual tweeters and woofers.

Users can also use the sliding drawer dock to create a physical link that also will charge iOS devices while continuing to play music from older devices such as an iPod classic or iPod nano that don't include a Wi-Fi connection. However, iOS devices streaming over Wi-Fi can enjoy their music up to 30 foot away from the speakers, which is significantly further than a Bluetooth connection that remains limited to streaming only compressed audio. The UE Air Speaker also comes with a companion app available on iTunes to enable remote control of sound.

The new Logitech UE Air Speaker will ship in the US and Europe beginning April from $400.
