  • If You Love Music, You Will Love This

    Control your music (as well as music-streaming apps like MOG and Spotify) with your iDevice from your couch. No need to place it in a dock or connect it to your stereo through the headphone jack.

    Remember when you use to set up your music system and there were wires everywhere: well, no more of that.  Innovation wins again, because now you can have your tuners, amps, speakers and movie surround sound, all be wireless.

    Reading the Wall Street Journal article, 2011: A Wireless Hi-Fi Odyssey, Michael Hsu examines the latest in wireless technology for audio components, and it’s pretty impressive.

    In 2011: A Wireless Hi-Fi Odyssey, Hsu stated, “Thankfully, the technology gods have smiled recently with several high-quality streaming products, allowing us to play the music in our hard drives and various mobile devices on our audio systems without stringing wires through walls or connecting iPods to stereos with some unsightly tentacle.

    One of the best solutions is the Cue Acoustics PS1, a sleek, powerful pair of speakers that you just plug into a power outlet—no need to connect them to an amp or even run a wire between the two of them. Whether your music resides on a PC, a Mac, an Android device or an iPhone (or any of Apple’s monolithic mobile toys) the PS1 can play it—wirelessly. It uses a streaming technology that you’ve probably never heard of even though it’s built into nearly 12,000 products: DLNA. If you bought a networked A/V component recently, it’s most likely DLNA certified, which means, as with the PS1, you can beam audio to it from a Skifta computer or your mobile phone (and if you’re tech-savvy enough, a network-attached storage device). Some Android devices have music players that support DLNA straight out of the box; if yours doesn’t, just download an app like 2PLayer and you’ll be set. Users of iDevices can download MediaConnect or Twonky from the App Store.

    Another way to get wires-free control of your music is with Apple’s much-heralded AirPlay technology, which lets you send audio from a newer iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad to an AirPlay-enabled player. It essentially turns your iDevice into a super-remote. Just control your music (as well as tunes from all-you-can-listen music-streaming apps like MOG and Spotify) with your iDevice from your couch. No need to place it in a dock or connect it to your stereo through the headphone jack.”

    If the sound matches the look and the convenience – then we’re at another level in our music listening experience. Rock on.

    Good Luck.
