How, exactly, do you connect outdoor speakers to your stereo system? If you're a DJ, how do you wire speakers to your console? If you've got a home theater system and a picky spouse, how do you hook up your rear speakers?
Airfonix, which specializes in wireless audio, will have an audiophile solution for your remote speaker dilemma in January with its AFX-19IP001 (who comes up with these ridiculous model numbers?). It's a compact USB hub/iPod dock that transmits frequency-hopping 24-bit uncompressed audio to its receiver modules connected to standard speakers. This wireless hub will run you around $300 plus receiver modules, probably cheaper and a lot easier than long high-gauge speaker runs.
