Introducing the Pioneer A1 Wireless Speaker.
We're living in a wireless world, which is good news for music lovers, because it means now you can wirelessly enjoy your music wherever you are. Since the smartphone has become the most essential wireless device in your day-to-day life, it was only a matter of time before someone introduced a Wi-Fi speaker with the broadest smartphone connectivity ever. That someone is Pioneer. That speaker is Pioneer's new A1 Wireless Speaker: the most convenient source for bringing high fidelity and powerful bass sound to you anywhere you go.
In the wireless world, there are many ways to connect and play, and the A1 connects to virtually all of them:
AirPlay is a revolutionary way of enjoying your music anywhere in your home, and the A1 is AirPlay compatible right out of the box. Wirelessly stream music from your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or your iTunes-running Mac or PC directly to the speaker. Plus use your iPhone or iPad device's familiar controls to change the volume and switch songs.
HTC Connect is for Android owners who, until now, have constantly asked, "What about me?" The good news is your speaker has arrived. A Pioneer exclusive, the A1 proudly supports HTC Connect, compatible with HTC One series phones. HTC Connect makes it easy to wirelessly stream your favorite music straight from your HTC One phone. There?s no need for a separate app; HTC Connect is built right into your phone's music player.
DLNA 1.5 certified, the A1 connects seamlessly to all other DLNA compliant devices.
Here's why Wi-Fi.
Pioneer never cared much for limits, especially when it comes to your audio experience. That's why instead of Bluetooth, they designed the A1 to be a true Wi-Fi speaker. Wi-Fi's higher bandwidth carries more audio signal, giving you higher audio quality. Not to mention far better range unobstructed by things like furniture or walls. Easy to set-up and pair, Wi-Fi gives you the portable audio experience you've always wanted.
With Wireless Direct - a Pioneer exclusive - you can enjoy wireless music far beyond your home's wireless network. Wireless Direct allows for a direct wireless connection between your smartphone and the A1 speaker, without the need for a wireless router.
Tuned personally by Andrew Jones
The A1 has been developed from the ground up by none other than Andrew Jones, Pioneer's world-renowned Chief Speaker Engineer. Having personally chosen the dual 77mm Woofers, 20mm Tweeter and dual 10W+10W amplifiers, and driver network, the sleek and contemporary A1 not only enjoys a distinguished pedigree, it also offers the clear, natural, and powerful audio experience you expect from Pioneer.
Maximum sound. Minimalist look.
Before you hear the sound, the first thing you notice about the A1 are the clean, minimalist lines of this extraordinary speaker. Its enclosed gloss black body means a fuller, less distorted sound. The timeless look of its black metal grill adds to the streamlined look, as does the perfectly integrated matte black Capacitive Touch Control Panel.
By taking advantage of Pioneers audio heritage, as well as the latest technology, the new portable Pioneer A1 Wi-Fi Speaker puts the key to wirelessly enjoying your music wherever you are right where it belongs: in your hands.
