Altec Lansing didn’t just want to focus on creating a wireless AirPlay speaker for OSK and iOS and decided to make a universal WiFi speaker that can be controlled from a number of devices with its new Live 5000  (MN5000) Wi-Fi All-In-One Speaker System. Users can listen to and control all their favorite music from cloud content or home network in any room

It features two three-inch speakers, two silk dome tweeters, and a four-inch sub with a passive radiator, which are all powered by a tri-amp system. Its Gentile convex curve of the speaker was used for maximum audio clarity and prevents sound waves from canceling each other.

All music is instantly accessed via a downloaded app for your iPhone, Android or desktop and sent to a queue for playback, allowing for users to stream an control content from their existing wireless network to any room in the house. And the free app allows anyone in the household to control the system, no matter what device they have. The app also allows users the ability to browse local and online media sources like Pandora, Rhapsody, SiriusXM and more.

The Altec Lansing LIVE 5000 WiFi Speaker will be available early this summer and will carry a price tag of $499.99
