CES 2013: Polk's Woodbourne supports AirPlay and Bluetooth

1:07 /

The Woodbourne may look retro but packs some high-end features

-Here guys, Sharon Vaknin here from CES 2013 taking a first look at the Woodbourne wireless speaker system from Polk audio. So, as you can see, this isn't your typical wireless speaker. It's got a really retro look with this mahogany wood on top. It's 24 inches long. It's got 180 watch total in power with 5-1/4 drivers and 2 1-inch twitters. We did test this guy at a private event and we have to say that the audio is really great. Notably, one of the most exciting things about the speaker is that it's Bluetooth and Airplay compatible, but you can still plug in other devices by optical USB or 3.5 mm in the back. I've got 5 sources along with the volume can be controlled right here, but it will come with its own remote control. This guy will retail for 5.99 and it will come out in the spring. For CNET.com, I'm Sharon Vaknin from CES 2013.
