iHome iW1 AirPlay Wireless Speaker


iHome iW1

iHome recently updated the page for their new rechargeable AirPlay enabled speaker dubbed the iW1.

iHome’s iW1 features AirPlay which lets you stream digital lossless audio over Wi-Fi from iTunes. Control is via a backlit capacitive touch panel. You can have multi-room ability with multiple units and portability thanks to a built-in rechargeable li-ion battery and carrying case.

The iW1 also features iHome’s Bongiovi Acoustics DPS studio series speakers and Class-D amp, iPhone/iPod docking and it works with iHome+apps for easy network setup, device control and firmware updates.

Pricing is $299 US when it hits retailers early 2011.

    Looks like it’ll cost $299, and they won’t be out in time for Christmas.
