Our take on the Soundcast Melody
Neither rain, nor snow, nor cold nor heat can keep the Soundcast Melody from delivering your music loud and clear. This portable Bluetooth speaker system is rugged enough to take anywhere, and it can deliver rich, detailed sound from your smartphone or tablet.
Bluetooth 3.0 for superior sound...
The Melody features Bluetooth 3.0 with aptX® so you can stream CD-quality sound from compatible devices. Your high-quality digital files will come through with improved dynamics and frequency response. And the system is compatible with regular Bluetooth, so no matter which version your phone or tablet uses, you can still enjoy your music wirelessly.
...and convenient control
Bluetooth 3.0 also has control functionality built in. So you can use the Melody's buttons to operate playback. Play, pause, and skip tracks without touching the smartphone in your pocket. And those controls work for music apps such as Pandora® Internet radio, iTunes®, Rhapsody® and more.
Great sound for the great outdoors
The system consists of four full-range speakers and four bass radiators configured to deliver stereo sound in a wide, 360-degree soundfield. No matter where you stand in relation to the Melody, your music will sound balanced and full. SoundCast's proprietary amplifier and 16-bit digital signal processor ensure dynamic, distortion free sound — even at full volume.
Praise for the Soundcast Melody from Sound & Vision
"As uncategorizable as it may be, Soundcast Systems' Melody "take anywhere, everywhere wireless speaker" is exactly that. It's a fabulously designed and engineered speaker that absolutely trounces other speakers in its price range that can't do even half of what the Melody does. It's a rare and wonderful (wander-ful, even) product that performs remarkably well-way beyond expectations. Highly, highly recommended."
— From Darryl Wilkinson's review in Sound & Vision, July/August, 2014

The Soundcast Melody is weather-resistant and puts out big sound — two great features for boating.
You can take the Melody pool-side, out on a boat, or up to the mountains. The Melody is encased in a UV-resistant AB plastic shell, with rubber seals for the connection port. It's weather resistant, and withstands moderate snow and rainfall. It also can endure exposure to both hot and cold outdoor temperatures.
Music to go
Just grab the Melody by its durable integrated handle and you're off. The system's built-in rechargeable battery can deliver up to 20 hours of operation, so you're good for the day. The system's USB recharging cable can be attached to its AC wallplug for indoor charging, or to its 12-volt adapter for recharging in a car or boat.
