raD: Rich, immersive sound in a box
When times call for a compact yet powerful audio system on-the-go, it’s quite hard to choose among many portable speakers on the market. If you thought portable speakers deliver the same experience, think again. A company called Mass Fidelity has brought the similar audio experience from the Core, its wireless speaker system line for the living room, to something more compact that you can take anywhere. It’s called raD, a take-it-anywhere wireless speaker that brings rich and immersive sound in any situation.
Mass Fidelity has never compromised on the Core, and carries it over to the raD. With a rugged form factor designed for tumbles and bumps of the outdoors, raD is built in the philosophy that a great audio listening experience isn’t limited to the four walls and corners of a room. It’s made for water resistance with its IPX5 certification, so you can freely take it to the beach, poolside, or even your shower and still enjoy streaming your favorite tunes. Although it comes as a single-packaged speaker setup, raD delivers true and full-bodied stereo sound – don’t let the form factor fool you.
Where other speakers lack in certain features, raD fills the gaps. It plays your tunes loudly and clearly – not just loud. It features a proprietary technology called raDial Soundfield, which aims for clear and loud audio even in the most challenging environments. There are no cutting corners and no compromises, as the raD is able to stream audio anywhere with the same rich quality you’d come to expect from certain home speaker setups. This technology is brought to life by a combination of four 1.5-inch audio drivers and a 3-inch woofer, virtually creating a sound envelope wherever you place it. Built-in aptX audio codec technology ensures a clear sound over a wireless connection, or you could go the wired route via the provided 3.5-mm analog jack.
Not only it plays well solo, but it pairs well with other raD and Core speakers for a multi-room, multi-speaker setup. Thanks to the Core Network technology built into it, raD communicates seamlessly and effortlessly with other raD and Core speakers within its range. No wireless networks or complicated setups needed – a single push of a button on your raD speaker will open it up for linking to up to eight raD or Core speakers. Built-in NFC and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless technologies allow for easy pairing with your smartphone or tablet. It can go on and on for up to 8 hours on a single charge, leaving you with almost nothing to worry about cutting your music party short.
If you’re in the market for a rugged and portable wireless speaker that delivers quality sound, raD could be your next bet. Smart technologies combined with a compact design makes it worth considering for an immersive audio listening experience anywhere you take it.
