AirPlay Boost launched
XtremeMac today began taking pre-orders for its new AirPlay Boost, a wireless solution for playing music from an iPod through a home, car, or portable stereo. Users can tune the transmitter as well as an FM stereo to the same frequency, allowing the AirPlay Boost to act as a miniature radio station to transmit songs from an iPod to the stereo. The on-screen tuning menu also features three programmable station pre-sets, according to XtremeMac. The AirPlay Boost is available in black or white for Apple's video iPod, or in black and silver anodized aluminum for the second-generation iPod nano. Both models are priced at $70, and are slated for shipment on November 20th.
