Logitech has introduced the Wireless Music System for iPod, which lets users wirelessly connect their iPod or MP3 player to a stereo or speaker system, share their digital music and control the music using their player as a remote control.
“The goal with this product is to make it easy for portable music player owners to share their music collections through their high-quality home-entertainment speakers,” said Logitech’s Ray Weikel.
The System is a two-piece, plug-and-play solution: a music transmitter connects to any portable music player’s standard headphone port and a music receiver plugs into a home stereo receiver or multimedia speakers through an RCA port or a 3.5 mm jack.
The music transmitter sends audio streams directly to the receiver at a range of up to 10 meters (33 feet).
Logitech plans to have the Wireless Music System for iPod available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in October. The suggested retail price is $149.99 in the U.S.
