The Epoz Aktimate Blue active speaker system is ideal for use with a variety of sources including mp3 players, tablets, smartphones and computers. The active speaker features 60 watts of power, USB, analogue and stereo inputs and wireless Bluetooth connection so you can connect several different devices to the speakers.
The RCA inputs are ideal for connecting audio sources such as CD players or even televisions while the 3.5mm socket delivers audio output from MP3 players, whilst computers can use the USB socket. The digital audio inputs make the Blue ideal for connection to DVD and Blu-ray players so you can use them to enhance your television's sound. The source selection of the Mini+ is controlled by the accompanying remote control, making operation simple.
The Blue features stereo RCA output so you can connect to another Blue or amplifier- for example for second room playback- and a subwoofer output.
