Default AQ Audio SmartSpeaker With AirPlay

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"At first glance the AQ Audio SmartSpeaker may seem like a smart but somewhat unremarkable portable wireless/AirPlay speaker in the vein of the JawBone Jambox or Audyssey Lower East Coast."</em></p><p><img height="400" src="" style="border: 0;" width="600" /></p><p>If you own any iDevices or like to wirelessly stream music from iTunes, the AQ's SmartSpeaker is a great modern looking unit you may want to take a good look at. &nbsp;Unlike the JamBox, the SmartSpeaker eschews bluetooth for AirPlay. &nbsp;This change allows the SmartSpeaker to not only stream music from iPod Touches, iPads or iPhones but from iTunes as well. &nbsp;</p><p>For those of you who do not want to use a device made by Apple, connection to the speaker is also available via the 3.5mm port. &nbsp;Android and DLNA support are in the works in addition to direct connect. &nbsp;No word if this capability will require a purchase of new speaker or will the hardware be capable of supporting the new firmware. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;</p>
