Pioneer has introduced a compact audio system, called the X-CM56, that includes a CD player, a USB port, an AM/FM tuner, and Bluetooth support with NFC for easy connectivity. The system features a 30-watt amplifier powering dual two-way speakers--each of which uses a 94mm cone woofer and a 50mm cone tweeter. The system is available in black or white, and the speakers can be arranged vertically or horizontally. The X-CM56 is available now for $199.
Pioneer Home Entertainment U.S.A. Corp. has announced the launch of the X-CM56 CD Receiver System (MSRP $199 US / $279.99 CDN) that has a superb array of functionality, including Bluetooth connectivity via Near Field Communication (NFC). The unit comes in both a stylish white (X-CM56W) and a beautiful black woodgrain design (X-CM56B), and its speakers can be installed both vertically and horizontally.
The X-CM56 can play music and Internet radio wirelessly from Bluetooth supported devices, such as smartphones, digital audio players, and personal computers, and the NFC functionality makes connections a snap by simply holding your device next to the unit. Thanks to the Bluetooth auto-connect function and Bluetooth standby function, the X-CM56 is powered on and starts playback immediately when wirelessly connections are made--even if the product has been switched off.
Despite its compact size, the X-CM56 produces high-quality sound with powerful low tones and expansive high tones achieved via a high-performance amplifier with an overall output of 30W (15W per speaker) and two-way separate speakers that feature a 94mm diameter cone woofer and 50mm diameter cone tweeter.
The unit is flexible enough to accommodate a wide range of media, including CDs and USB sticks, and has a full-range FM/AM tuner, and for the environmentally conscious, the X-CM56 has a standby power consumption of less than 0.5 watts, as well as power-off mode that enters standby when not in use.
The X-CM56 is now available for an MSRP of $199 US / $279.99 CDN.
