Wireless Home Dock ships

FriendTech has begun shipping the iDea Wireless Home Dock, a device designed to stream content directly from an audio player via Wi-Fi without the need for a computer. The base station features 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 audio through an RF-based transmitter to compatible receivers, such as the company's own HD-Audio adapter, according to Electronista. 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. FriendTech is already shipping the Home Dock with a remote for $150, with individual receivers available for $50.
