IDea Wireless Home Dock

Wireless streaming audio is typically very dependent upon a computer to function. Those who would rather stream content directly from an audio player can now choose the iDea Wireless Home Dock announced recently by FriendTech. The base station has an iPod-specific dock as well as a more generalized cradle for the PSP, music phones, or other digital audio players. Either device can send high-quality audio through an RF-based transmitter to compatible receivers such as the company's own HD-Audio adapter. Connected directly, the docking station can also broadcast 5.1 surround sound from supporting devices or iPod photos and videos through the built-in RCA and S-video outputs. The company is currently shipping the Home Dock with a remote for $150; individual receivers are also available for $50.
