The award-winning RoomGroove iPod speaker utilizes premium woofers, crossovers, and horn-loaded tweeters to deliver accurate, efficient, and compromise-free acoustics. It features a retractable dock that charges most iPod models (see below) with 30-pin connectors and comes with Apple? universal well inserts to accommodate multiple iPod sizes. Other digital devices easily connect via an auxiliary input.
iPod touch (1st generation), iPod nano (1st, 2nd and 3rd generation), iPod classic (80GB, 160GB), iPod 4th and 5th generation.
Dock adapters available for select iPod models only.
Available in a sleek black finish, the RoomGroove offers a clean, modern design that fits comfortably into any living environment. It comes with an IR remote control and is ready to perform as soon as you plug it in and dock an iPod or connect an MP3 player.
Thanks to KlipschCast? wireless technology, the RoomGroove not only lets you create a wireless multi-room music system with two or more units, it also works in conjunction with our CS-700 home theater system (sold separately), letting you wirelessly transmit CD-quality AM/FM radio, TV and movie sound all over your house. There?s no wiring beyond the CS-700 satellites and power cords, no holes to drill and no difficult, time-consuming set up.
How does it work? Simply, through KlipschCast, the CS-700 sends a wireless audio signal to one or more RoomGrooves. This signal can be the same one playing on the CS-700 or something entirely different. The CS-700 is capable of playing up to two separate sources at the same time. For example, the CS-700 can play a DVD movie in the living room, while the RoomGroove broadcasts the CS-700?s AM/FM tuner in the kitchen.
The RoomGroove can also play music locally, utilizing its retractable iPod dock or through its auxiliary input for other MP3 players. Since the RoomGroove is a transceiver, it can transmit as well as receive, allowing it to send this MP3 music signal to other RoomGroove units throughout the house. In fact, users can create a multi-room music system with just RoomGrooves. And, a RoomGroove gives you a choice. If a home has three RoomGrooves and ?Song A? is playing in the bedroom and ?Song B? is playing in the office, then the RoomGroove in the kitchen can listen to either song or play what?s on its own iPod.
As a side note, the RoomGroove not only brings out the best in your iPod, it will also work with your computer. All you have to do is connect the RoomGroove to your computer via its auxiliary input. This allows you to broadcast your computer's entire music library, including content from your favorite Internet radio station, to other RoomGrooves around your house.
The robust 2.4GHz wireless technology found in the RoomGroove and CS-700 offers unlimited add-on opportunities. Plus, the technology ?sniffs out? the entire 2.4GHz band to detect other wireless technologies in use, such as wireless routers, and then transmits around the spectrum used by those sources. The home code dial on each of these wireless speakers allows you to select a code specific to all of your units to avoid interference from neighbor systems.
