Look closely at what's under the front grille of this cleverly engineered USB powered portable laptop speaker from Edifier. In a sleek aluminum chassis that will compliment any Apple MacBook - they've manage to put multiple, very high-quality sound drivers into a slim 1.75" x 10" sound-bar that's easily transportable.
Mac Laptop Speaker
This all-in-one USB speaker is fully portable and features an elegantly brushed aluminum chassis and dark metal front grille. A USB cable provides both power and pure digital audio streaming from any Apple laptop or desktop Macintosh's USB port. On it's side is a 1/8" audio in jack - as well as a manual volume control button.The auxiliary device input also allows use of other devices like your iPhone, iPad or iPod. The Edifier Sound To Go features a 3 x 1¼ inch oblong passive radiator subwoofer, dual 1¼ inch mid-range drivers and a pair of 1¼ inch tweeters with a built in digital amplifier to provide exceptional audio volume and frequency response far better than a MacBook's built-in speakers.
For the past few year's I've used an IPEVO Tubular Wireless Speaker as my 13" MacBook Pro's sound system. That can be nice for the wider sound-separation the detachable speakers provide. And occasionally I did use it wirelessly across the room. But powering on and occasionally having to futz with Bluetooth Pairing and Apple's Sound Preference Pane could be intermittently frustrating. I've got a new MacBook Air with ThunderBolt and USB 3.0 ports on order - and to celebrate I've decided to try this USB computer speaker instead.
