Logitech Unveils Three "Music Anywhere" Products
Logitech today introduced three new solutions that utilize its Music Anywhere wireless technology. The idea of this innovation is that the transmitter and receiver are paired at manufacturing, ensuring they will instantly connect when plugged in. The proprietary technology features adaptive frequency hopping to overcome potential wireless interferences.
Speaking of new products, firstly, there´s Logitech Wireless Music System for PC, which can stream any format of digital audio from the PC to a home stereo system or to a separate speaker system. The novelty includes a USB music transmitter (up to 100 meters (330 feet) range) that connects to the PC; a music receiver that plugs into a home stereo receiver or multimedia speakers through a standard RCA port or a 3.5mm jack; and a wireless remote control. The latter, according to the vendor, allows to control music from almost anywhere around the home and features controls such as volume up or down, mute, play, pause, skip forward and back. The remote works with media players like iTunes, Windows Media Player, Musicmatch, WinAmp, and RealPlayer.

The system also includes software that allows people to switch back and forth between listening to music on the PC and wirelessly streaming it to another room.
The Logitech Wireless Music System for PC will be available in stores and online beginning in September in the U.S. and in Europe. Its suggested retail price in the U.S. is $149.99. Logitech will make additional receivers available for people who want to stream their music to multiple rooms in the house. The additional receivers will be available online at www.logitech.com, for $79.99 (U.S.).
Secondly, there´s a similar system — the Wireless Music System for iPod — which includes a music transmitter that connects to any portable music player´s standard headphone port and a music receiver that likewise plugs into a home stereo receiver or multimedia speakers through an RCA port or a 3.5mm jack. Note that the transmitter works in a range of up to 10 meters (33 feet).

The Logitech Wireless Music System for iPod will be available in the U.S. and Europe, beginning in October. The suggested retail price is $149.99 in the U.S.
