Outcast Jr. Brings Summer Soundtracks Outdoors

Summer is upon us, which means more time basking in the sun and BBQing with friends. While simply spending time outdoors can be inspirational in itself, sometimes a little tunage may be in order to make combating weeds and scrubbing down grills more fun. Rather than hoping that cranking your stereo inside will carry tunes outside (annoying the bejesus out of neighbors) set up Soundcast's wireless speakers in your garden oasis.

The weather resistant Outcast Jr. can play music that's wirelessly sent to it, so you can place it anywhere in your yard without having to string cables through the rose bushes. You can place it anywhere within 350 feet of a base station, such as the iCast Trasmitter. It uses a 2.4 GHz signal, similar to a cordless phone, so even if you don't have WiFi set up in your home you can wirelessly jam to the beats.

The iCast is designed with iPods in mind, so if you have another digital audio player or want to transmit music from your computer or TV you'll want to get Soundcast's UAT. Or you can plug directly into the speaker using the auxiliary input. And obviously, you don't have to only use this outdoors. An equally great option for those looking for a wireless soundtrack at home. A 12-volt rechargeable battery can be used or you can plug directly into the grid using the included AC/DC power cord.
