TuneStage for iPod
today announced the TuneStage for iPod, a device that allows users to play the songs from an iPod through any home theater wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. "With a transmitter connected to your iPod and a receiver hooked up via RCA or 3.5mm to your system, TuneStage offers reliable, high-quality sound without the clutter of cables." The TuneStage fits all-size iPod devices with a dock connector, leverages Bluetooth v1.2 wireless technology (for up to 33ft range), inludes a 7ft Gold Series RCA stereo cable, and offers "plug n' play" support. The transmitter (for the iPod) requires no batteries, features low power consumption (40mA), and automatically powers on/off with the iPod. Belkin will begin shipping TuneStage for iPod in North America in late July 2005 for $180.
