Polk Audio announced today the latest speaker offerings from its Heritage Collection of personal and portable audio—the Camden Square and Woodbourne. Camden Square boasts 24-hour battery life, and an accompanying DJ Stream app that allows music streaming through the speaker from multiple sources, useful for any social gathering or occasion. For home entertainment, the Woodbourne offers high-performance movie and music listening that leverages Bluetooth and AirPlay capabilities contained in a mahogany and cream exterior.
Camden Square was designed with a retro, etched metal top and chestnut sides enclosing the speaker's four full-range high-performance drive units and two bass radiators, which work together to deliver high-quality sound. Camden Square also features Polk's Digital Signal Processing and proprietary acoustic system to provide balanced sound at any volume while removing distortion.
Created uniquely for Camden Square, Polk's DJ Stream app works with both iOS and Android devices and adds an interactive element to music listening. The app identifies one user as a DJ Host, and allows up to three other users to connect and play music as Active DJs. The four connected DJs can select music from their own libraries, either online or those already resident to their phone, and take turns adding to a main playlist, while up to 128 additional Guest DJs can view the playlist, vote on music and become an Active DJ when one of the four drops off or disconnects. The DJ Stream app is free for download.
The Camden Square speaker will retail for $299.95.
For the user’s home, the Woodbourne speaker ($699.95) wirelessly provides 180 watts of audio for music, movies or other living room entertainment. Featuring optical and analog inputs, the Woodbourne accepts sound input from TVs; it also uses AirPlay and Bluetooth wireless technologies to stream music from a variety of home devices.
Camden Square and Woodbourne will be available starting Nov. 1 at www.polkaudio.com and at select Best Buy locations beginning Nov. 3. The DJ Stream app is now available for free download from the Apple Store and Google Play.
