WE all seem to love living out the wireless lifestyle and the inclusion of Bluetooth connectivity has definitely helped.
The Edifier Prisma Bluetooth speaker system is one good example. It delivers crystal clear sound reproduction and delivers a cable-free and seamless listening experience.
The Prisma Bluetooth connectivity can synchronise with any compatible Bluetooth-enabled device, streaming music sans wires within a range of 9m — that is without any obstacles in between, of course.
A couple of auxiliary input ports have also been thrown into the mix, where the remote control itself boasts of a headphone-out port that delivers a personal audio experience.
There is also a master volume located on the remote in addition to a separate bass adjustment dial on the subwoofer. The amount of juice that this speaker system can pump out? 48 watt RMS power, all for US$129.99 (RM413.65)
