IN CAMP, AT HOME: Perfect for an upscale camping retreat or a backyard get-together, Acoustic Research’s Santa Clara wireless speaker definitely inspires spring fever. It uses Bluetooth technology to stream music from any compatible device (smartphone or tablet), while also offering multiple LED lighting modes that can illuminate an area or enhance the party atmosphere with color-changing lights that can pulse to the beat of the music. It can be connected to another Santa Clara speaker for stereo sound.
THE DETAILS: Like other Acoustic Research products, the Santa Clara provides stellar sound. The system is 10 watts, with a midrange driver, tweeter and bass resonator, and it has 3.5 mm aux-in functionality to connect directly to a sound system. It has a built-in rechargeable battery that can play up to 12 hours.
The speaker is designed for indoor and outdoor use, and has an IPX casing for weather resistance.
