IK Multimedia ships iLoud amplified Bluetooth speaker
Music creation apps and accessories developer <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/297935==http://www.ikmultimedia.com/" rel='nofollow'>IK Multimedia</a> has announced that the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/297936==http://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/iloud/index.php?pp=iloud-info" rel='nofollow'>iLoud</a>, the first portable stereo speaker that claims studio-monitor quality on the go, is now available from music instrument and consumer electronics retailers worldwide. The iLoud battery-operated speakers combine power, frequency response and boosted low end in an ultra-portable design that makes it an alternative to studio speakers for music creation, composition and playback. <br />
<br />
The iLoud has an onboard DSP, a bi-amped 4-driver array of high efficient neodymium loudspeakers, and 40W RMS of power. The iLoud's bass-reflex allows frequencies to go down to 50hz.<br />
<br />
Bluetooth operation is supported for wireless audio streaming anywhere and everywhere from a mobile device such as an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android smartphone or tablet for casual listening. For sound sources like MP3 players that do not have Bluetooth capabilities, the iLoud also has a stereo eighth-inch mini-jack input for connecting line-level devices such as home stereos, DJ gear, mixers, MP3 players, and more.<br />
<br />
The new speaker features the same circuitry as IK's iRig, and allows users to plug in guitars or other instruments and access AmpliTube or other audio apps on a mobile device for practicing, performing and recording. The input also accommodates dynamic microphones, making it possible to run apps for real-time vocal effects and recording. <br />
<br />
The IK iLoud is now available at retail for $299.

Sorry, but you can't have studio monitor quality if the speaker has a "boosted low end." Bass reflex speakers have muddy bass, and will never be studio monitor quality. They should quit spewing BS.
