Full-Range Sound w/ BassTrac Circuitry: Thanks to dual
Boston-designed, high-performance 3.5" drivers in separate vented chambers, the MC100 Blue plays full-range
sound from a compact speaker. The MC100 Blue Bluetooth speaker plays your music
with a wide range and very natural sound reproduction, so you can enjoy music as
the artist intended (and not rely on the tiny speakers found in your mobile
phone, tablet, or computer). Chances are, you'll hear notes and instruments you
hadn't noticed before. The MC100 Blue also features BassTrac circuitry for
consistent, superior sound. BassTrac is a Boston-designed patented technology
that controls bass output dynamically dependent on volume level for satisfying
bass at any listening level.
Elegant Styling: High-grade materials both inside and outside the
speaker add to the simple style. The buttons are discreetly located on the top,
conveniently positioned for intuitive use. A seamless base positions the speaker
so it leans back slightly to create an elegant look. The clean, minimalist
design of the MC100 blends easily into its surroundings and is perfectly suited
for the home or office setting. The only color you will see is a blue LED volume
indicator behind the grille, which lights only when the volume is changing.
Bluetooth Audio Streaming + aptX: The Boston Acoustics MC100
Blue features built-in Bluetooth A2DP/AVRCP technology which allows you to
wirelessly stream audio from your Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad,
Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, or laptop/computer. You'll be able to
stream stored music or music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled device and control
playback from the included remote control. The MC100 Blue also features aptX
which allows for CD-quality sound when streaming from a Bluetooth device that
also includes aptX. The audio quality from aptX is indistinguishable from wired
music, matching CD performance for a top-quality listening experience. You will
song/artist information and perform advanced music navigation from your Bluetooth-enabled device.
Simple Pairing w/ NFC: A single button press pairs your
Bluetooth-enabled device with the Boston Acoustics MC100 Blue. The unit is also
equipped with NFC (Near Field Communication) for simple tap-to-pair connectivity
from Android mobile devices that are NFC equipped. Simply place your NFC-enabled
mobile device, such as a smartphone, near the top of the MC100 Blue to initiate
pairing. The MC100 Blue can be paired with up to 8 devices (only one can be used
at a time). Once paired, the Bluetooth speaker will automatically re-connect to
the last device used when in wireless range (30').
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some
Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may
not support all features when used with the Boston Acoustics MC100 Blue.
Remote Control: The included IR remote control operates the
system's volume up/down and muting. The remote also supports basic playback
functions of your Bluetooth streamed music, such as Play/Pause and Track
Auxiliary Input: The Boston Acoustics MC100 Blue is fitted
with a 3.5mm auxiliary input to connect virtually any portable audio device with
a headphone output.
Headphone Output: There is a side-panel 3.5mm headphone
jack which allows you to connect a set of headphones for private listening. When
a set of headphones are connected, the system's built-in speakers are muted.
Mounting Options: The Boston Acoustic MC100 Blue can simply
be placed on a table, desk, shelf, or stand. You can also wall mount the MC100
Blue using its two rear-panel keyhole slots (spaced 3.9375" apart).
Note: The MC100 Blue will sound great just about anywhere. If you put
it near a wall or corner the bass response will be enhanced. Blocking the
bass ports on the rear of the cabinet will reduce bass response.
AC Power: The wireless Bluetooth speaker system operates off
of standard household AC current using the supplied AC power adapter.
