Eos multi-room wireless audio system for iPod

Eos from IntelliTouch is apparently the world’s first digital wireless multi-room audio speaker system for iPod. Using WiFi-friendly technology, Eos links up to four stereo remote wireless speakers, with a range of up to 150 feet through walls and ceilings, for use indoors or outdoors. Eos was introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show last January, and is now available in limited quantities.

The heart of the Eos system is an iPod docking base/transmitter with two stereo speakers plus a ported subwoofer. The system uses SRS WOW® sound enhancement that Intellitouch says improves compressed and uncompressed audio by expanding the size of the audio image and creating deeper, richer bass. Like the base, the Eos remote wireless speakers also have two stereo speakers and a ported subwoofer.

Eos accessories include a weatherproof wireless outdoor amplifier, with two audio zones and separate volume controls. This allows you to transmit and control sound outside your home, without having to drill holes and run wires. The weatherproof outdoor amp can be used with most outdoor speakers.

The basic Eos system includes a docking station/transmitter with one wireless remote speaker, with a $299 list price. Additional Eos wireless speaker remotes, as well as the Eos weatherproof wireless outdoor amplifier, and a transmitter/receiver bundle are available separately at $129. Eos products are available in black or white. CLICK for more info or online ordering. (This is a preview, not a review)
