Milpitas, Calif. – October 16, 2012– NuForce, Inc., a leader in professional and consumer audio solutions, announces its S3-BT wireless Bluetooth loudspeakers. The NuForce S3-BT is a meticulously designed active loudspeaker that features the latest aptX® and ACC technology for clear, full-bodied, distortion-free audio streamed over Bluetooth.
Jason Lim, NuForce CEO: “With Bluetooth-enabled devices becoming the most common way to carry and listen to audio files, we at NuForce decided to create a speaker that would satisfy even our most discerning customers. By implementing the latest technology and focusing on custom design, we’ve successfully created speakers that deliver the most advanced audio performance from a Bluetooth bookshelf speaker today.”
The S3-BT speakers are based on an essential, time-honored principle: good sound depends on intelligent design and superior materials. For example, the S3-BT’s woofer employs a proprietary anti-resonance cone and powerful magnet assembly. Similarly, the tweeter consists of a custom-designed soft dome design for negligible distortion and smooth, natural sound. And, for the eye, the speakers’ outer shells are wrapped in soft white or black leatherette.
 
The S3-BT’s aptX Codec feature offers exceptional Bluetooth performance. However, for those who demand yet better sound along with convenience, we’ve included a set of analog inputs for connecting directly to a TV or other entertainment device. NuForce’s own Air DAC wireless system* can also be connected to the S3-BT speakers for even higher quality wireless audio streaming.
