Tritton Technologies on Tuesday announced its
Sound Bite, a 2.1 speaker system it says is ideal for an Apple iBook or Mac mini. The Sound Bite is a self-contained USB-powered speaker system that integrates two aluminum micro drivers and a subwoofer, complete with a sound chip. It’s available in pearl white or dark gray finishes, and is priced at US$49.95.
Because the Sound Bite is USB-powered, it requires no power supply or batteries to operate. Each speaker measures 28mm and the subwoofer measures 52mm. The system handles 5 watts input with maximum output of 1.2 watts. The attached USB cable stores underneath the device to reduce clutter. It’s plug-and-play compatible with Mac OS 9 or later with USB audio support.
