The speaker also doubles as a table with fold-out wings and built-in cup holders. A splash mat protects the top panel from potential beer spills. The microphone input not only makes karaoke a possibility but an inevitable embarrassing situation that will arise towards the end of a big night.
Sony equipped the GTK-PG10 speaker with built-in tweeters facing up and out to spread sound further. The digital signal processor automatically optimises audio performance when taking the speaker outdoors.
Tunes come via Bluetooth, the FM tuner function, and USB play and charge so you can charge your smartphone on the go. The speaker’s rechargeable battery offers up to 13 hours of use between charges which should be long enough to keep the party going through the day and into the night.
With built-in handles and tripod compatibility, the GTK-PG10 is easy to transport between the backyard, BBQs in the park and beach days in the summer. The Sony GTK-PG10 Party Speaker is available now for AUD$449.
In other Sony audio news, the tech brand has also released a portable glass speaker with faux-candle lighting.
