It was just a short time ago that I was talking about Pioneer's decision to halt plasma manufacturing. This past week they showed their wares at the trendy (I’m told) Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City.

While one might expect some reduction in their products after such a huge announcement, they went the other way. They actually seem to be expanding their lines across the board with several new displays, Blu-ray players, and receivers.

Audioengine W1 Wireless Adapter

May 23, 2008 By Geoffrey Morrison 7 comments

Audioengine describes their product in one sentence perfectly: "Transfer music wirelessly from any audio device or computer to your Audioengine powered speakers, surround receiver, or powered subwoofer."

It's crazy simple, plug one gum sized device into the source, be it iPod, computer, CD player, or what have you, and the other one into a power socket, and a receiver or powered speakers. Presto, you have a wireless connection and uncompressed (or no additionally compression anyway) audio up to 100 feet away.
