Grace Digital has come to the rescue; for Kindle Fire users.
Grace Digital has released Matchstick, a speaker dock system made specifically for Amazon’s Kindle Fire. The Matchstick allows users to make full use of the Kindle Fire’s suite of multimedia apps and experience greater levels of audio fidelity and convenience.
Features include built-in stereo speakers, a rotating cradle — sized exclusively for the 7-inch tablet — allowing for viewing from horizontal and vertical angles, a remote control, and power adapter. User on the go can keep the Kindle Fire burning with a 7.4-volt lithium-ion battery pack (sold separately) or plug the Matchstick into a dedicated AC power port. There is even a secondary rear panel aux port for other input types, making the Matchstick compatible with the Samsung Galaxy, iPhone, and iPad.
Setup could not be any more basic. Simply unbox it, plug it in, set up your network connection, and start listening.
Audio testing incorporated varying genres.
- Hard Rock; Crazy Nights by Kiss
- Rap; It’s Tricky by Run DMC
- Oldies; Run around Sue by Dion and the Belmonts
- Soft Rock; Desert Moon by Dennis DeYoung
- Comedy; I’m Starvin’ by John Pinette
The sound was nothing short of amazingly rich. The highs were high, the lows were low, and you could hear every note of every instrument and every different tone.
The Matchstick is small enough to sit compactly on a small night table, while surprising you with its larger than life sound
The Matchstick is available on Amazon.com with a retail price of $130.
