Crave giveaway: Philips Fidelio SoundRing wireless speaker
Listen up. This week's freebie is a portable AirPlay speaker with a great sound and a striking design.
Editor's note: Since CNET comments were disabled for several days due to site maintenance, we have extended the deadline for this giveaway to 12 p.m. ET on Friday, March 14, 2014.
Congratulations to Kenneth T. of Coldwater, Mich., for winning an amplified HDTV antenna from Winegard in last week's giveaway. This week's prize will have you going 'round in circles -- in a good way.
We're offering up a Philips Fidelio SoundRing DS3881W portable wireless AirPlay speaker, which, as the name suggests, features a circular design. And a striking one at that.
AirPlay, in case you need a refresher, is a wireless-streaming feature found on the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or any Mac or Windows PC running iTunes. The SoundRing offers what Philips calls a "360-degree surround-sound effect," and in his CNET review, David Carnoy reports that it exudes "superior sound."
The 16-watt speaker measures 7.8 inches at its widest and weighs 3.3 pounds. It has a built-in rechargeable battery and a USB port for charging smartphones.
Normally, this speaker would run you $299.99, but this is your chance to get one for zilch, nada, bupkis. How do you go about doing that? Our rulemakers have made a few rules, as rulemakers do, so please read carefully.
