A brand favored by sound buffs, Soundfreaq, has made a big announcement at this year’s 2013 CES (News - Alert) convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. Known for its wireless speaker systems, Soundfreaq has announced the launch of a new line of speakers: the first Dual Streaming Bluetooth Speaker and the first Lightning Speaker Dock for the iPhone (News - Alert) 5 and the iPad Mini.

The Sound Platform 2 being made available at Target (News - Alert) for $149.99 on February 17th and the others slated for release later this year.
The Sound Platform 2 has been re-designed in such a way that consumers will not know that it is a second-generation product: it looks like a new, different product.

It features two USB ports located on the back for charging. There is a viewing screen that will allow users to see which mode they are currently using, tuning for FM radio, wired input, and wireless Bluetooth modes. The newest feature is the dual streaming feature that will allow two Sound Platform 2 units to synchronize with each other allowing the other unit to work as a separate speaker system for wider stereo separation. There will also be extra batteries available for purchase for seven hours of use without an electrical outlet.
The Sound Step/ Sound Step Recharge Lightning will be compatible with the latest products from Apple: the iPhone 5, the iPad Mini, and the newest iPod Touch. This will allow for rapid charging while docked, and it will also feature a digital alarm clock and digital radio functions.
