Thunderstorm Handheld Home Theater - warum Belkin seinem ersten iPad-Lautsprecherdock einen solchen Zungenbrecher als Namen verpasst hat, ist uns schleierhaft...aber immerhin scheint er zu halten, was er verspricht. Das Dock ist in eine bequem zu tragende Hülle integriert, und trotz dieser Kompaktheit klingen die Lautsprecher beeindruckend laut und tief, wie unsere Kollegen aus den USA berichten. Allerdings hat die Sache einen Haken: für die Lightning-Version müsst ihr euch noch bis zum Sommer gedulden, denn zurzeit gibt es das Case nur mit dem alten 30-Pin-Connector. In den USA wird das - einatmen - Belkin Thunderstorm Handheld Home Theater für iPad 2 und iPad 3 Anfang Januar für 200 Dollar auf den Markt kommen, der weltweite Vertrieb startet "bald". Pressebericht nach dem Break.

Thunderstorm iPad App

The free Thunderstorm app provides extended control with three different soundscapes
custom tuned by Audifi.

Musical: Balanced for music and web video
Cinematic: Broader soundscape with simulated accentuated middle channel to lend clarity and presence to dialogue
Action: Spreads the soundscape out to its fullest extent and sharpens sound effects so games explode off the screen
