Eos Converge System

Eos Wireless took advantage of both Macworld and CES to launch the Converge. The multi-device system is designed to automate piping audio wirelessly to speakers within a maximum 150 feet of a core transmitter. Each receiver includes its own controls and lets owners pause and skip tracks without needing a separate controller. Setup is also fully automated, Eos says.

Unlike most such systems, Eos is dividing its wireless devices into groups. A Group 1 transmitter is designed for Macs, PCs and generic audio devices and supports either connecting through a 3.5mm headphone jack or through USB; no extras are available. A Group 2 unit adds an amp that bolsters the power for speakers that otherwise wouldn't be capable of driving sound themselves. A final Group 3 choice includes a full 2.1-channel sound system for those who need an entirely independent system.

One module is also available that includes a universal dock for iPhones and iPods. Eos doesn't provide full pricing but starts the line at $90 per piece, with all its Converge elements should start reaching stores in March.
