Multiple Zone Audio Controller & Bluetooth AirPuck
Portland, OR - Exile Audio announced two new products aimed at mobile and marine audio aftermarkets. The Exile ZLD (zone line driver) adds independent audio control to cabin, subwoofer, and tower zones. When outfitted with the Exile AirPuck, a bluetooth device, the combination adds wireless streaming from any bluetooth enabled portable audio device.
“The products are pretty slick,” states Brian Kelsey, Exile Director. Each operates independently so consumers may integrate the AirPuck into existing systems or opt to add the full functionality of the Exile ZLD.”

This Bluetooth device can transmit and receive, while providing a mini USB charger and 3.5mm audio connections. These features make the device the most versatile of its kind. In receiving mode, the AirPuck eliminates audio cables and puts the music in the hands of anyone in the boat. Powered by an 8 hour, rechargeable Lithium Ion battery, the AirPuck magnetically mounts in any location and acts as a 30 foot wireless audio connection that easily syncs to any Bluetooth enabled streaming device. In transmit mode, the AirPuck has endless possibilities for marine audio boat to boat linkups. With micro USB charging the AirPuck is truly portable allowing users to utilize it in home audio applications such as wireless audio transmitting to remote subwoofers, or providing room to room audio streaming. For mobile applications the AirPuck makes it easy to add wireless audio streaming to any auxiliary input equipment audio system.
