We're still on the search for the perfect speaker system for our home. It seems like it's a never ending task, but with speakers like these &mdash maybe the end is near?
The Parrot by Starck is a wireless speaker. It seems to have the perfect merriment of aesthetics and functionality.
The Parrot, standing just over 2 feet tall works with the iPhone (iPod and iPod touch) and works via Bluetooth 2.0 with Smartphones, MP3 players, and PC. The user docks their iPhone on the top of the Parrot to begin listening to music &mdash 360 degree range of music, that is. The speakers in the Parrot wrap entirely around the body, therefor allowing you to hear the music from any angle &mdash even if you're sitting across the room. Too lazy to get up and change the song? Good thing there's a wireless remote that comes with the speaker.
You can stream audio wirelessly from any computer, or you can hook it up through RCA line-in input for all analogue audio sources. Total power output: 100W RMS, 50W per channel, frequency range: 50 Hz – 20 kHz, with a maximum range: 50 feet, 15 metres. The only problem: the price and I couldn't find any information on charging time.
The Parrot is available for purchase from Starck for $1500.
