Fill Up Your Room with Absolute 3D Sound

Turn your whole room into a stereo playground with the iLunar RBX-500 Dock Music System, featuring Absolute 3D sound processing technology from Swiss company Sonic Emotion. This remarkable system envelops the listener in stereophonically balanced sound, regardless of where they are within the room. Getting the 3D listening party started is a just matter of docking your iPod®/iPhone®- or if you prefer, streaming wirelessly from any Bluetooth-compatible smart phone, tablet, or personal computer- and diving into a refreshing musical landscape. With six precision drivers nested above a down-firing subwoofer, the iLunar RBX-500 has a lot more oomph than the average compact system. So whether you're entertaining guests or just relaxing with the friends, this stylish music system has the power to offer everyone the best seat in the house.

Absolute 3D Sound by Sonic Emotion

The iLunar's Absolute 3D sound concept is made possible by innovative technology from the Swiss company Sonic Emotion. Absolute 3D works by processing incoming stereo signals, locating sound objects within the mix, and recreating their original positions using the iLunar's 6.1 loudspeaker array. Called Sound Field Control, the patented technology eliminates the conventional stereo "sweet spot" so everyone in the room enjoys a natural, immersive listening experience. With remote-selectable 3D modes (Normal, Enhanced, and Vocal), this technology renders an authentic Absolute 3D sonic image and creates the illusion of being in the studio with the musicians playing around you. Every place in the room is the "sweet spot."

Bluetooth Streaming at Your Fingertips

Easily stream your music through the iLunar- whether you use an iPhone or iPad,® an Android device, or any other compatible device with Bluetooth capability. Just pair the devices, select your music, and press "play." Bluetooth Version 2.1 +EDR and an aptX ® codec preserve your music's natural dynamic range for performance that's virtually indistinguishable from conventional wired audio. With the robust data transfer capabilities of Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR, you'll be delighted with remarkably clear sound reproduction. There's even a handy USB port for charging compatible smart phones and tablets while you're streaming your music.

iPod/iPhone Digital Audio Connection and Charging Dock

As most seasoned iPhone and iPod users know, you can never have too many chargers around the home or office. The dust-free dock on the iLunar RBX-500 provides yet another way to top off your batteries as you enjoy the super-clean sound of Onkyo's digital-to-digital connection technology.

All audio signals are transported in digital form, rather than analog, so there is much less chance for signal degradation- which means your music sounds cleaner and more faithful to the original. And your iPhone or iPod is charged and ready for when you're back on the move.

Efficient Digital Amplifier Circuitry for Clean Audio

The iLunar RBX-500 employs digital amplifier circuitry to extract a noise-free signal from digital audio sources. Whether it's an AAC file stored on iPhone, or an MP3 streamed wirelessly from your laptop via Bluetooth technology, your music will sound clearer than ever. Because digital amplifiers convert power very efficiently, much less energy is wasted as heat. With no need for a bulky heat sink, the amplifier design is smaller and lighter. Hence, the iLunar RBX-500 generates room-filling power through 6.1 channels while being portable enough to move from room to room.
