Definitive Technology Unveils Bluetooth Tablet Speaker

New "Sound Cylinder" speaker clips on to most tablets and features built-in subwoofer for superior sound

BALTIMORE, Jan. 2, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Definitive Technology announced today its first Bluetooth speaker system, the "Sound Cylinder," to bring high performance sound to tablets and other portable Bluetooth enabled devices. Sound Cylinder's innovative clip system securely attaches the speaker to most tablets and many laptop computers.

The consumer electronics industry will get its first peek at Definitive's new Sound Cylinder at the company's exhibit space, booth 4809 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, at CES 2013, Jan. 8-11 in Las Vegas.

Sound Cylinder doubles as a table stand for an attached tablet. A built-in pivoting "kickstand" securely holds the device at an ideal angle for viewing and listening. It connects wirelessly to Bluetooth enabled devices or via an audio cable to any device with an analog audio output jack. The built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 10 hours of high quality listening.

Befitting Definitive's reputation as a leading maker of ultra-high performance component home loudspeakers for discriminating listeners, Sound Cylinder's audio performance is exemplary. It features a built-in side-firing subwoofer in addition to stereo speakers to provide listeners with rich, full-bodied stereo sound wherever they may go. Surround Array image enhancement processing creates a life-like soundstage that extends beyond the compact dimensions of the cylinder.

"Thanks to rapid advances in portable devices such as tablets and smart phones, enjoying music and video content on the go is within the reach of everyone," said Kevin Duffy, Definitive Technology's President. "Headphones are fine but they're not always practical, especially when you want to share an audio experience with others. Sound Cylinder answers the need for convenient high quality audio on the move."   

Sound Cylinder is fabricated with premium materials to achieve a level of attractive appearance, precision fit and luxury finish unusual in portable audio products. The grilles are custom perforated aluminum while the "kickstand" and clamp mechanism parts are injection-molded Magnesium alloy, a costly high-tech material that is incredibly strong yet lightweight.

The product design is the result of collaboration between world renowned Frog Design and the DEI Global Design Center, headed by Chief Design Officer Michael DiTullo. Frog Design is an innovation firm with 12 locations around the globe and more than 1,000 designers, strategists, and engineers. The DEI Global Design Center is a multi-disciplinary design studio located in the Vista, CA office of Definitive's corporate parent, DEI Holdings.

Sound Cylinder will be available in consumer electronics specialty storefront and on-line retailers as well as Definitive's on-line store in January 2013. The suggested retail price is $199.
