Bluetooth Streaming for Undocked Playback
The DS8550 supports stereo Bluetooth, which means you'll be able to stream your music remotely--even when your device isn't docked to the speaker. Simply establish a Bluetooth connection with your iPad or iPhone, and enjoy your music, videos, and games without the inconvenience of docking. You'll be able to operate your device while simultaneously enjoying crisp speaker playback.
PureDigital Processing for Unsurpassed Fidelity
Unlike traditional iPod docks, the DS8550 processes sound digitally. The result is far clearer audio performance. Using PureDigital, the DS8550 collects the digital output of your iPod, iPhone, or iPad and processes it at each stage of the circuit, resulting in a much higher signal-to-noise ratio. This allows the speaker to reproduce the audio files on your mobile device with greater clarity and fidelity.
Optimized Drivers Add Precision
If a speaker's drivers aren't optimized to match its acoustic requirements, it will produce distorted sound. Fortunately, the DS8550's drivers have been fine-tuned to provide clear performance at all frequencies. High tones are precise and distinct, while low tones come out deep and tight. Bass reproduction is particularly rich: the mid- and low-range drivers have been specially engineered to create crisp, penetrating audio reproduction.
Curved Design Creates an Ideal Acoustic Environment
Chic and elegant, the DS8550's curved design is not only an eye catcher, it's also an effective structure for acoustics. The concave architecture of the speaker creates an ideal acoustic environment for your music: It dramatically reduces distortion and resonance, resulting in more precise and natural sound.
Free Fidelio App Unlocks Additional Features
If you own an iPad, iPod touch, or iPhone, you can unlock even more features for your speaker using the complementary Fidelio app. This exclusive app allows you to navigate your music collection more easily, check your speaker's battery life, and control sound settings. It also gives you access to a full five-band equalizer, which lets you fine-tune your speaker to suit your acoustic preferences. You can even use the app to set customized music alarms, so you'll wake up to your favorite music every morning.
Dock Any iPhone or iPod, Even in Its Case
The speaker's spring-loaded docking port accommodates any iPhone or iPod, without special adapters. What's more, it works even when most protective cases are on--just dock your iPhone or iPod as is for fuss-free enjoyment of your music.
Compatible with iPad, iPods, and iPhones
The DS8550 is compatible with iPad and includes an iPad stand. It is also compatible with all iPod products with a 30-pin connector (except iPod shuffle)--this includes the newest iPod nano and touch models; also compatible with iPhone, iPhone 3G and 3GS, and iPhone 4.
