Grundig Wireless Speaker Provides 360° Surround
May 26th, 2007
I’m not sure what to make of the industrial design of this funky wireless speaker from German electronics maker Grundig.
To me it looks sort of like some kind of vacuum cleaner or other household appliance, but the Grundig PSW5000 is actually an outdoor wireless sound system. Just plug in your MP3 player or other audio source into the base station, and carry the battery-operated speaker up to 300 feet away. The unique speaker design claims to produce an enveloping surround effect, and is backed by 20-watts of amplification.
The speaker’s case is made out of plastic and designed to resist damage from water, making it perfect for the beach or by the poolside. The speaker retails can be found for about €110 (appx. $148 USD) but you’ll probably need to have one shipped from Europe if you want one.
