Jan 23, 2013– Modena, Italy (Techreleased) – IK Multimedia is proud to announce iLoud, the first portable stereo speakers designed for musicians. IK leveraged its 16 years of pro-audio engineering expertise, and its experience as the leading developer of mobile music-creation apps and accessories, to design battery-operated speakers that combine superior power, pristine frequency response and amazing low end, in an ultra-portable form factor that makes them the perfect alternative to studio speakers for music creation and composition on the go.
The iLoud line consists of two models, iLoud and iLoud MINI, both of which provide musicians with sonic accuracy that’s on par with professional studio monitors, making it possible – for the first time – to compose, record, and mix from a mobile speaker system.
Despite their diminutive size, both iLoud speakers are indeed very loud. In fact, they’re 2 to 3 times louder than comparable size speakers. The iLoud model offers a blasting 40W RMS of power, and it’s little brother, iLoud MINI, a robust 12W RMS.
iLoud speakers are the perfect monitoring and playback stereo speaker system for anyone on the go. Use iLoud or iLoud MINI for real-time monitoring and playback from your favorite apps like AmpliTube, VocaLive, SampleTank or DJ Rig, or in any application where you want to listen to crystal-clear, full-range music and audio the way it was meant to be heard.
