Sony Wireless Multi-Room Audio System for iPod Players

Sony today took the wraps off S-AIR PLAY, its  new wireless, multi-room audio system for listening to iPod players.

The new S-AIR PLAY system features Sony’s S-Air technology, which provides a wireless multi-room solution. Wireless audio can be transmitted from the system’s main docking station in one room to various rooms throughout the home — up to nearly 164 feet — simply by plugging a separate S-Air wireless speaker into a power outlet.

“This technology makes it easy to listen to music from a compatible iPod without carrying it from room to room,” said Andrew Sivori, director of marketing in the personal audio group at Sony Electronics’ Digital Imaging and Audio Division. “It’s an easy, inexpensive way to get multi-room audio without professional installation.”

S-Air technology delivers audio wirelessly to the included speakers without interfering with other household devices. The system comes with one docking station and two S-Air wireless speakers, but it can transmit to up to 10 speakers simultaneously.

Equipped with an AM/FM tuner, the S-AIR PLAY system’s dual source feature lets users listen to music from the iPod player or from a radio station. Listeners in one room can hear their favorite radio station, while listeners in another room can enjoy music from the iPod at the same time.

The S-Air wireless speakers include remote control capability for the iPod player’s music tracks so you can advance or go back to previously played songs. The speakers also incorporate sleep timers and an alarm clock function, making them perfect for bedside placement.

To connect to an existing home theater system or television set, the docking station includes composite A/V outputs. It also charges the iPod while it is docked.

Pre-orders for the    S-AIR Play (model AIR-SA20PK) audio system are now being accepted online at  Sony Style. The System will be available in September for $399.99 at Sony Style retail stores and select retailers nationwide.  Additional S-Air wireless speakers will also be available next month for about $130 direct from Sony.
