Freemont, CA -- Logitech today introduced the Logitech Wireless Music System for iPod, which allows people, in a matter of minutes, to wirelessly connect their iPod or MP3 player to a stereo or speaker system, share their digital music out loud, and control the music using their player as a remote control.
The Logitech Wireless Music System for iPod is a complete, 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. There's no complicated home network needed.
"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 Ray Weikel, director of product marketing for Logitech's Audio Business Unit. "The Wireless Music System for iPod is perfect for dinner parties. From the couch or dining room table, people can skip tracks or hop from playlist to playlist, using their player as a remote control."
The Logitech Wireless Music System for iPod relies upon the Logitech Music Anywhere(TM) wireless technology to deliver a reliable, persistent connection and ultimate plug-and-play simplicity. The transmitter and receiver are paired at manufacturing, ensuring they will instantly connect when plugged in, and remain connected. This proprietary technology provides crystal-clear digital audio quality and features adaptive frequency hopping, helping the products overcome any potential wireless interference. The music transmitter sends audio streams directly to the receiver at a range of up to 10 meters (33 feet).
Logitech Music Anywhere Wireless Technology
The Logitech Wireless Music System for iPod is just one of Logitech's new products featuring Logitech Music Anywhere wireless technology. The company also sells the Logitech Wireless Headphones for iPod, giving owners the ability to listen to their music player with no strings attached. Today, the company also announced the Logitech Wireless Music System for PC, an easy-to-use product for people to wirelessly connect their PC to their stereo system, and the Logitech Wireless Headphones for PC, designed for people who want to wirelessly listen to their PC audio as they roam around the house. Logitech's Music Anywhere technology is designed to provide digital music enthusiasts the freedom to enjoy their music listening experience in more places, without any setup hassles or headaches.
