Wi-Fi Speaker featuring AirPlay, DLNA, HTC Connect, and Wireless Direct.
We're living in a wireless world. Which is good news for music lovers, because it means now, you can wirelessly enjoy your music wherever you are. And since the smartphone has become the most essential wireless device in your day-to-day life, it was only a matter of time before someone introduced a Wi-Fi speaker with the broadest smartphone connectivity ever. That someone is Pioneer. And that speaker is the new A4 Wireless Speaker: the most convenient source for bringing high fidelity and powerful bass sound to you anywhere you go.
In the wireless world, there are many ways to connect and play, and the A4 connects to virtually all of them. Besides industry-standard DLNA compatibility over Wi-Fi, you can use AirPlay and HTC Connect to play music from your smartphone or tablet PC.
Expand your audio entertainment options with an endless playlist of your favorite music and access to more than 10,000 internet radio stations from across the globe. With a firmware update, Pandora and vTuner Internet Radio are now built right into Pioneer's line of SMA wireless speakers and are designed to help you discover and enjoy new music. And with Pioneer's free ControlApp, available in the App Store and Google Play, you can control it all conveniently right from your compatible Apple or Android device.
AirPlay is a revolutionary way of enjoying your music anywhere in your home, and the A4 is AirPlay compatible right out of the box. Wirelessly stream music from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or your iTunes-running Mac or PC directly to the speaker. Plus use your iPhone or iPad device's familiar controls to change the volume and switch songs.
HTC Connect is for Android owners who, until now, have constantly asked, "What about me?" The good news is your speaker has arrived. A Pioneer exclusive, the A3 proudly supports HTC Connect, compatible with HTC One series phones. HTC Connect makes it easy to wirelessly stream your favorite music straight from your HTC One phone. There's no need for a separate app; HTC Connect is built right into your phone's music player.
Streaming the highest quality music from your laptop, PC, or "smart-device" is the way to the world of audiophile music enjoyment. All of Pioneer's 2012 SMA Wireless Speakers are capable of receiving, decoding, and playing the highest quality uncompressed music files with up to 192kHz sample rates with 24-bit resolutions.
You don't need limits, especially when it comes to your audio experience. That's why instead of Bluetooth, Pioneer designed the A4 to be a true Wi-Fi speaker. Wi-Fi's higher bandwidth carries more audio signal, giving you higher audio quality. Not to mention far better range unobstructed by things like furniture or walls. Easy to set-up and pair, Wi-Fi gives you the portable audio experience you've always wanted.
With Wireless Direct--a Pioneer exclusive--you can enjoy wireless music far beyond your home's wireless network. Wireless Direct allows for a direct wireless connection between your smartphone and the A4 speaker, without the need for a wireless router.
The A4 has been developed from the ground up by none other than Andrew Jones, world-renowned Chief Speaker Engineer. Having personally chosen the 5-driver design, the A4 comes with dual 77mm midrange speakers, a dedicated 100mm subwoofer and dual 20mm tweeters. The sleek and contemporary A4 not only enjoys a distinguished pedigree, it also offers the clear, natural, and powerful audio experience you expect from Pioneer.
Before you hear the sound, the first thing you notice about the A4 are the clean, minimalist lines of this extraordinary speaker. Its enclosed gloss black body means a fuller, less distorted sound. The timeless look of its black metal grille adds to the streamlined look, as does the perfectly integrated matte black capacitive touch control panel.
By taking advantage of Pioneers audio heritage, as well as the latest technology, the new, portable Pioneer A4 Wi-Fi Speaker puts the key to wirelessly enjoying your music wherever you are right where it belongs. In your hands.

Sound is very good. It is unclear in the sales literature that it basically only works with pandora and spotify. Probably the apple thing too. Read morePublished 9 months ago by michael stjohn
