RCA Soundflow Wireless Audio System: Hands-On (Video)
Remember the iFrogz Boost products we looked at a couple months back, the ones that used “Near Field Audio” to connect to your smartphone without the need for Bluetooth or wires? Other manufacturers are rushing to adopt similar technologies in their own products, and we just got the chance to check out one on the CES show floor in Las Vegas.
The RCA Soundflow system works just like those earlier systems we shared with you; you simply rest your phone in the right spot and, regardless of manufacturer or platform, the Soundflow picks up on the electronic signals driving your phone’s speaker, amplifies them, and outputs them via its own, much more capable speakers.
It can be tricky to get something like this lined up perfectly, which is why it’s nice to see this unit arrive with an LED to show you just when things are precisely aligned and the system is active.
