Your tablet, lap-top, or smart phone gives you a great-looking picture; Definitive’s Sound Cylinder adds stunning, high performance audio from a compact, stylish 2.1 speaker system. Separate left and right speakers are optimized by an internal Digital Signal Processor to create stereo music with clear separation for a life-like soundstage that extends beyond the compact dimensions of the cylinder. A powerful, built-in, active woofer adds rich, warm bass. Your favorite music and soundtracks come alive, wherever you choose to enjoy them.

Sound Cylinder clamps securely to just about any 10” or 7” tablet and many laptops. The Magnesium alloy clamp arms are super strong but their rubber slipcovers are gentle on your precious equipment. The retractable kickstand system holds your tablet upright in landscape or portrait orientation for hours of fatigue-free, wireless listening pleasure. Cylinder is fabricated from the finest materials including Aluminum and Magnesium alloys to make it beautiful, luxurious and ultra-durable.
|The rugged Magnesium alloy kickstand extends to hold tablet and speaker at an ideal angle and folds back into Cylinder's body when not in use. It's always there when you need it, never there when you don't.|
“Compact, portable, rugged and powerful, the Definitive Technology Sound Cylinder is everything we could want in a hybrid speaker/tablet stand.”
"The Definitive Technology Sound Cylinder is a sleek and compact wireless Bluetooth speaker that converts from a standalone speaker to a stand for just about any tablet. It has good build quality and delivers decent sound for its size."
“Indeed, the aluminum and magnesium design is pretty slick, but what really blew me away from listening to the little package for a few minutes in the office was how good it sounds."
“Definitive Technology's Sound Cylinder isn't the most expensive personal audio speaker you can buy, but it is one of the most versatile and enjoyable systems on the market.”
“To say Definitive is testing the hotly contested waters of mobile accessories would be a gross understatement; with Sound Cylinder, they are jumping in head first. “
“Regardless of what I threw at it, Definitive Technology’s Sound Cylinder was engaging with all types of music -- everything from Green Day, Adele, Daft Punk, and Bill Frisell to Dvorák and Copland."
“The Sound Cylinder is definitely the most innovative and best looking ultra-portable speaker we have seen lately.”

Our friends at Lust Gadget put together a review of the Sound Cylinder that is so complimentary, we're starting to blush.
Our favorite quotes:
" With a very high-end look and feel (and a tube-shaped packaging that’s out of this world.) it’s the perfect companion to a tablet, or laptop to give the speakers the boost they probably need."
"...our number one, best recommended bluetooth speaker solution. It’s loud, proud and clear with clever 2.1 audio including a mini sub-woofer and ultra chic design that makes it at home in any environment. From the packaging, to the presentation to the ease of use and general quality, the sound cylinder is the bluetooth speaker to beat."Adam Aragon - Lust Gadget (Mar 10, 2013) Read More
