If you have been looking for a unique looking speaker, look no further. Soundfreaq and The Novogratz have teamed up again to create a custom designed speaker in limited edition, and they called it the Boom Freaq. Underneath is a standard Sound Stack, but with a beautiful paint job surrounding it. It looks exactly like an old school boombox, down to the switches, knobs, and the cassette all painted on. It’s truly a gorgeous speaker that brings out nostalgia.
With Bluetooth, you can use any device you want with it. This means that any Android device will work, along with hundreds of other devices. As an added bonus, you also get a 30 pin dock and a Lightning connector for those on the dark side. It even supports the iPad.
In terms of sound, you get a 2.2 speaker setup, with two subwoofers instead of one. The drivers are Kevlar-reinforced and are in triple-ported housings. And just like the standard Sound Stack, it’ll sound amazing.
This product comes just in time for Father’s Day, so if you want to order one as a gift or treat yourself, hit the source link to pre-order this limited editon speaker. It’ll set you back $350, but you get a lot of bang for your buck!
LOS ANGELES – APRIL 1, 2013 – Just in time for Father’s Day, Soundfreaq, maker of the critically acclaimed line of wireless speakers, is continuing the collaboration with husband-and-wife design team, Robert and Cortney Novogratz to launch Boom Freaq. Inspired by old school boomboxes, the limited edition speaker combines The Novogratz’ unique design concepts with Soundfreaq’s award winning wireless speaker, Sound Stack. Boom Freaq is currently available for pre-orders at Soundfreaq.com for $350.
Named “Gear of the Year” by WIRED Magazine, Sound Stack is meticulously crafted to capture the nuance of every note and complements every genre of music at any volume.
Sound Stack allows users to stream music wirelessly from any Bluetooth compatible device including iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android and Blackberry. Sound Stack is also built with a 30-pin dock and as a new added feature, Boom Freaq will include a Lightning connector, allowing users to dock and stream from Apple Lightning devices (iPhone 5, iPod Touch (5th generation), Pod Nano (7th generation), iPad (4th generation), and Pad Mini).
“We love the Boom Freaq. It instantly brings us back to our youth and puts a smile on our face. Not to mention it cranks out even louder sound than the one that used to upset our parents back in the day,” said Robert and Cortney Novogratz.
Sound Stack features DubSub™, a unique 2.2 speaker configuration pairing two full-range drivers with two active subwoofers. DubSub™ technology combined with custom-engineered Kevlar-reinforced drivers, a tuned triple-ported housing and Soundfreaq’s proprietary UQ3™ spatial sound enhancement brings a level of acoustic innovation not typically offered in a speaker dock.
Rather than adding another tie to dad’s wardrobe, gift him with the ultimate wireless speaker and take him back in time with Boom Freaq.
