Aperion Audio has just announced its newest wireless speaker called the Aperion ARIS which lets digital music lovers listen to their tunes from any room in their home. Simply place the speaker where you want it and connect via wireless or Ethernet to the home network using the Windows 7 and/or Windows 8 Consumer Preview operating systems.
Most people today store their music on a variety of digital devices, including desktops, laptops, notebook PCs, network storage drives, tablets and smartphones. These devices are usually on the home network, but users can listen to music only on a device that is physically plugged into a powered speaker or stereo system. The ARIS wireless speaker eliminates the need to move music files between devices or plug and unplug cables to hear specific tracks. Using the Windows 7 “Play To” feature, music lovers can send music from any device on the network to an ARIS speaker located where they want to listen.
ARIS connects to a home network at the push of a button using Wi-Fi Protected Setup. The all-in-one ARIS speaker system includes six internal drivers and four amplifiers that provide a total of 100 W RMS power. The brushed aluminum enclosure, measuring 6.5 inches high by 14.75 inches wide, increases rigidity to fill most rooms with full-range, distortion-free stereo sound.
