Rain or shine, the summer is coming, and that means parties on the patio and swimming in the pool.  All you need is outdoor entertainment.  Take a look at the Soundcast Speaker System lineup.  The Outcast may be the all weather, outdoor speaker you've been looking for.

OutCast is an all weather outdoor speaker system designed to provide high performance full range music in the yard or patio. It features an 8” downward firing woofer, four 3” high frequency drivers in an omni-directional array, a 100 watt digital amplifier and the Soundcast receiver.

The OutCast is made of water resistant plastic and is designed to operate for up to 10 hours on the built-in, rechargeable battery pack. It has an internal AC power supply that can recharge the NiMH battery pack and operate the OutCast at the same time.

As with SpeakerCast, the initial version of OutCast will include the iCast transmitter and be oriented to iPod users. This version of OutCast also has buttons for pause/play and track forward/track back for remote iPod operation.

All OutCasts have controls for volume, on/off, and mood lighting. There is also an input jack for direct connection of an MP3 player, which should very useful during social gatherings when guests might wish to play music from their personal players.

• Allows connection of other audio devices – MP3 players and computers – using the auxiliary input/output jack
• Transmits signals up to 350 feet outdoors
