iHome iW2 Airplay Speaker System
Airplay enabled speakers are quickly dominating a market where dock/plug and play speakers were once the sole option. iHome introduces their second generation speaker system using AirPlay audio streaming technology, the iW2.
The speakers enable you to play music anywhere you have a home network using either Wi-Fi or Ethernet. The iW2 can receive music from AirPlay sources such as iTunes, iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad. The iW2 also supports charging and local audio playback via USB by using the USB sync cable that comes with new iPods, iPhones and iPads.
Apple TV is the undoubtedly the best way to utilize AirPlay, in that you can view video as well. However, if you only want to wirelessly stream audio, you’ll need an AirPlay speaker like the iW2. Once connected, you can control the iW2′s volume with both your iDevice and the included remote. Bass and treble settings can be tweaked with the remote, an essential function for EDM fans. The specially designed sealed speaker enclosures deliver astounding clarity, depth and power. For its size and price, the iHome iW2 AirPlay speaker is a solid choice if you’re trying to cut the cords in your home or office.
