Overview

Our take on the Audyssey Lower East Side Audio Dock Air

Don't think you have to trade audio quality for wireless convenience. The LES Audio Dock Air is compact but powerful. The system features two 3/4" dome tweeters to produce high frequencies with clarity, and two 3" midrange woofers that deliver accurate, detailed sound. Two 4" passive bass radiators reinforce the low end. With the LES system, your music will sound full and natural.

The Lower East Side Audio Dock Air is as smart and sophisticated as its New York City namesake. This sleek black box doesn't need to have a lot of ugly cables and buttons sprouting from it. The Lower East Side (LES) powered speaker system uses Apple AirPlay to wireless stream music from any device using iTunes. So you can play songs from your iPhone; the soundtrack to the video you're watching on your iPad; PANDORA® Internet radio from your iPod touch, or podcasts from your computer.

LES is more, especially in more rooms

Apple AirPlay lets you link compatible systems together and control them all from a single source. So you could have a Lower East Side Audio Dock Air in your bedroom, another in your kitchen, and a third in your living room — all playing that great tune from your iPhone. And AirPlay lets you adjust the volume separately for each unit, so that song can play softly in the bedroom, while blasting out in the kitchen.

You can also stream music from your iPad to one LES Audio Dock Air, while playing music from your computer wirelessly through another. And the system has an auxiliary input, so you can connect a non-AirPlay portable, such as a PDA, and enjoy music from it as well.


I love the Audyssey Lower East Side Audio speaker system. I placed it in a toom where there is a lack of enough pwer - Plus the fact that I didn't need to run and manage cables makes it a plus. And the speakers sound great for such a small size,

System Overview

Lower East Side Audio Dock Air: The Audyssey Lower East Side Audio Dock Air is a self-powered speaker with Air-Play technology that lets you stream music wirelessly from your computer, iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad.  The Audyssey Audio Dock Air pairs the uncompressed streaming capability of Airplay with Audyssey's sound technologies so you hear rich, clear, detailed, and balanced sound. Whether you want to play music stored on your computer, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or your favorite internet radio station like Pandora or Spotify, the Audyssey Audio Dock Air can play it with AirPlay wireless streaming.

Audio Section

Audyssey Smart Speaker Technology: The Audyssey Lower East Side Audio Dock Air employs Audyssey Smart Speaker Technology for distortion-free, powerful, and precise sound. Audyssey Smart Speaker Technology even maintains balanced sound at low volumes.

2-Way Speaker System: The Audyssey Audio Dock Air employs four custom-designed drivers. There are two 0.75" tweeters for crisp, detailed highs and two 3" midrange speakers for clear, accurate midrange sound.

Passive Radiator Design: The Audyssey Audio Dock Air is designed with two 4" passive bass radiators and Audyssey's proprietary technology to play deeper bass.
