Newmarket, N.H. - Russound, the supplier of custom-installed multi-room-audio systems, is moving into a new product segment with an AC-only outdoor amplified speaker.

The $399-suggested AirGo Outdoor Sound Station mates with Apple's $99 AirPlay-equipped AirPort Express to stream music via Wi-Fi from a networked PC's iTunes application and from iPhones, iPod Touches and iPads.

To get AC power, the Wi-Fi-equipped Airport Express plugs into an AC outlet inside a protective pocket in AirGo's chassis.

With the AirPlay-enabled AirPort Express, the AirGo speaker streams music stored on Apple's mobile devices and on iTunes-equipped computers as well as Internet radio streams accessed by those devices.

Music streamed by the AirPort Express is routed to the amplified speaker via a 3.5mm audio input.

AirGo houses two 1-inch tweeters, one 6.5-inch woofer, and a 40-watt RMS amplifier in an enclosure that measures 12.6 inches by 12.9 inches by 10.2 inches.

AirGo is available through Amazon, Best Buy.com, Crutchfield and Russound's traditional custom-installation specialists.

With AirPort Express plugged in, the AirGo doubles as an outdoor Wi-Fi hot spot because of the AirPort Express's ability to serve as a Wi-Fi repeater.
