While doing the rounds on different media and manufacturers websites today i came across something new on Altec Lansings website; they have put up a teaser for their coming Altec AirPlay speaker, their first to feature the Apple streaming technology.
At the moment they are not showing off the full design, but instead giving us a few hints at what is to come from their first ever Apple AirPlay speaker.
Based on the information currently available about the system we are talking about a clean and elegant design, with a tri-amp system that drives two tweeters, two mid-range speakers and a subwoofer. Sounds like it will be in the the upper price range compared to most other Altec Lansing iPod speaker docks, and likely priced around the same area as many of the other Apple AirPlay sound systems in the market.
Update! Altec has replied to my post on their Facebook page saying that the Altec AirPlay will be out in time for the holiday season.
The Airplay release date hasn’t been announced yet. You can expect to see them in time for the 2011 Holidays!
Update 2! At IFA 2011 Altec Lansing has revealed more details of their Altec Lansing inAir 5000 AirPlay speaker, including images.
We will be back with more information on the Altec Lansing wireless AirPlay system when available.
