Buena Park, Calif. – Yamaha is expanding its portable Bluetooth speaker lineup with the $199-suggested NX-P100.
The NX-P100 is a splash-proof model that features nearfield communications (NFC) pairing and streams the AAC and AptX codecs.
It joins the $179 PDX-B11, which lacks NFC and AptX streaming.
The metal-body NX-P100, available later this month, has a rectangular shape in contrast with the PDX-B11’s spotlight-like housing. Other features include hands-free speakerphone capability, an internal rechargeable battery with eight hours of playback time, and a USB port for charging mobile devices. It will be available in black and white.
The existing model lacks speakerphone capability and uses six AA batteries.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
