iHome says it will release the iW2 Wireless Speaker System with AirPlay support on April 1. Apple’s AirPlay is a feature for streaming music, video and photos wirelessly from iPad, iPhone and iPod touch to the Apple TV.
When placed within a Wi-Fi network, iHome’s latest Wi-Fi enabled speaker system connects to offer an option for achieving whole home audio with simple turn-key set up, according to Evan Stein of iHome. The iW2 is an app-enhanced AirPlay wireless speaker system that uses your Wi-Fi network to connect and control your iTunes library, and provide wireless audio anywhere in the home.
The iW2 has a USB port for charging and music playback from your iPad, iPod and iPhone with any iPod USB sync cable and dock. SRS Trubass sound processing custom tuned to two full-range speaker drivers delivers exceptional audio, Stein says.
The iW2 will be available for purchase at Best Buy, Crutchfield and select Target stores, and at iHomeAudio.com for US$199.99. For detailed product info, go to http://www.ihomeaudio.com/iW2BC/ .
