If you have speakers just collecting dust in your basement just hanging around the house and you want them to support wireless audio, a new device has been created for you. Designed to be easily set up, the Air DAC Wireless System from NuForce lets convert your old speaker system to wireless in just a few steps.
The NuForce Air DAC wireless system is composed of the Air DAC receiver and two transmitters (the uTX USB dongle that can be used on computers and the iTX dongle for Apple iOS devices like iPods, iPhones and iPad). According to NuForce’s website, it promises CD quality audio, though it did not specify if it will still be good when it reaches around 30 meters or if you have a wall standing in your way.
“Unlike similar devices, the Air DAC and associated TX transmitters do not experience the typical loss in sound quality or interference capability of cell phones and other wireless devices,” according to the website. “Rather, they offer CD-quality sound, virtually no latency, a 15-30 meter range, and a spread-spectrum technology that detects and chooses from among available frequency spectrums in order to avoid interference.”
One of the great things about this device is each transmitter can stream music to 4 receivers at the same time, given that they are within range. Also, one does not need to run an app to listen to music. All you need to do is to connect the dongle to a USB port or Apple device and plug the receiver to any speaker system and you’re all set.
Do you think that this is a good alternative for Apple’s Airport?
