SMK Announces the New Notebook USB Audio Station

CAMARILLO, CA -- SMK-Link Electronics Corporation, a subsidiary of SMK Electronics, the largest manufacturer of OEM remote controls in the world, today announced the availability of the new Notebook USB Audio Station. Utilizing a minimal foot-print design, the new Notebook USB Audio Station elevates the Apple® MacBook® or PC laptop screen, positioning it ergonomically at eye-level for effortless desktop use. The new USB Audio Station also features a seamlessly integrated stereo audio amplification system, plus a 3-port powered USB hub--making it an ideal base station for all Apple MacBook laptops, as well as Dell®, HP®, Sony® and other Microsoft® Windows®-based PC laptops.

“The NoteBook USB Audio Station is also an audio amplification system” “Laptop and notebook computers have become both desktop replacements and entertainment centers. SMK’s new Notebook USB Audio Station is a ‘must have’ desktop accessory for these new uses,” said John Blair, General Manager of Branded Products for SMK-Link. “Priced under $60 and available at Apple retail stores, the Notebook USB Audio Station is a quick, easy and effective desktop base station. Raising the laptop screen to a 26-degree tilt angle at eye level, it creates an ergonomically-correct computing position—reducing eye strain and eliminating the neck pain or back fatigue associated with prolonged laptop use.

“The NoteBook USB Audio Station is also an audio amplification system,” continued Mr. Blair, “delivering 8 watts of clear stereo sound from its pair of seamlessly integrated audio speakers. Finally, the Notebook USB Audio Station contains a 3-port powered USB hub for use with all USB 1.0 or USB 2.0 peripherals. Used in combination with a wireless keyboard/mouse combination, such as Apple’s Wireless Keyboard and Magic Mouse or SMK’s VersaPoint® Wireless Desktop Suite, the Notebook USB Audio Station is an ideal laptop base station--seamlessly positioning the MacBook or PC laptop screen for extended desktop use at home, in the dorm, or at the office.”
