Rocketboost Sound Gets iOS and Window Apps

Posted by at 11:17 am on January 24, 2012

Best Buy gave owners of its Rocketboost wireless audio system a way to steer it independently with both desktop and mobile apps. Both a Windows controller  and an free iOS app let users pipe audio from a Rocketboost host device to any Rocketboost audio system on the same local network, including Insignia TVs and soundbars. It lets users mix and match sources and destinations, also giving them a signal strength for each device to give a hint of how reliably it will play.

The system depends on having a computer with a USB adapter that makes the RF wireless-based connection to end devices. Rocketboost’s main advantage is claimed to be its “HD” audio by using the higher bandwidth RF affords without having to tie the audio to a specific app or using a short-range, narrow bandwidth technology like Bluetooth.

Windows users need at least XP SP3 to run the app, while iOS users need any iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch that can run iOS 4.2 or later.
