iHome, a leading supplier of innovative iPod/iPhone speaker solutions, and Bongiovi Acoustics today announced an exclusive partnership to bring Bongiovi Acoustic’s patented Digital Power Station technology (DPS) to select 2009 iHome home audio and portable audio devices. The revolutionary technology uses active sound processing to maximize the response across the entire frequency spectrum, to breathe new life into all of your audio, and in turn, recreate the sound as the artist originally intended listeners to hear.
The first iPod/iPhone docking speaker systems that have incorporated the DPS technology will be on display during CES 2009 at iHome’s booth located in the North Hall, #N245.
“The astounding quality and robust sound produced by Bongiovi Acoustic’s DPS audio technology is a huge step forward in audio sound reproduction,” said Evan Stein, vice president of Marketing, iHome. “We’re very excited to be their exclusive partners and to use their technology to enhance our product line and provide our customers with the best possible listening experience available.”
“Digital audio has redefined how consumers get their music, yet format compressions can often degrade the music,” said Tony Bongiovi, President and co-founder, Bongiovi Acoustics. “When coupled with iHome’s award-winning line of iPod/iPhone speaker systems, our patented DPS technology will ensure an unrivalled listening experience.”
The patented Bongiovi Acoustics Digital Power Station technology was developed by a team of audio engineers that have years of experience in the music, television and motion picture recording industry. It is a complex chip-based algorithm that is custom-tuned to each and every product to maximize its performance. The processor is active, which means it constantly scans the program material in real time and raises frequency levels to compensate for diminished frequency response that results from the compression of the MP3, the most widely used music format. This DPS technology works at any listening volume level.
