Better Wireless Stereo

Forget Bluetooth audio, these cool wireless music products offer a better wireless way to get your music around your home.

More and more companies are hopping on the stereo Bluetooth bandwagon, despite the inherent limitations of using this wireless technology for transmitting audio. Of course you don’t have to go the Bluetooth route at all. There are many other examples of innovations in the wireless audio arena. Intellitouch, for instance, has just released the Eos Wireless speaker system, a much cheaper alternative to Sonos, the $1000 wireless home audio system (that price doesn’t even get you speakers!). Eos is less sleek and more barebones—no Rhapsody tie-in, for instance, but it works and a starter set goes for $300—speakers included. The sound won’t knock your socks off either, but the price won’t leave you with buyer’s remorse.

Creative’s X-Dock and X-Fi Receiver combo works as well, and also starts at $300. Both systems have unimpressive remotes (you’ll have only limited iPod navigation with no screen on the remote itself). The Creative docks lack speakers too, so you’ll need an extra pair—that’s the main difference between the X-Fi receiver and the Eos receiver…but some may view this as an advantage, as the Eos system has underwhelming bass.

Chestnut Hill Sound makes another wireless option of sorts, the George iPod dock. While George doesn’t wirelessly transmit audio to remote speakers, it does have an amazing wireless remote with good range. The screen on the remote completely recreates your iPod’s menu and navigation is easy. Want to change the EQ or listen to the radio? It’s got that, too—all on the remote. Sure, it’s not wireless audio transmission, but it is wireless control of your music, and depending on your set-up, that could be just as useful. Also, the George also sounds simply amazing—it had better for $549.
