MP3 AirLink Cuts the Cord for Digital Music Enthusiasts

New product from StarTech.com allows users to listen to digital quality music on home stereo through wireless connection from PCs, iPods or MP3 players

Groveport, OH - StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of convergence and A/V products, announces the release of MP3 AirLink, the perfect companion for today's iPods and other portable music devices. MP3 AirLink lets users play digital music files from their iPod, MP3 player, desktop PC or notebook through their existing home stereo system without having to use cumbersome wires. This allows users to enjoy the convenience of their portable music device while maximizing sound quality by playing audio through their home stereo system.


The MP3 AirLink consists of a transmitter unit that connects to the user's PC or MP3 player and a receiver unit which connects to a home stereo, portable stereo or any other device with standard audio RCA inputs. It includes all cables needed to connect devices to the units.

Unlike inferior products that use FM signals and are susceptible to interference, the MP3 AirLink uses digital transmission to deliver crystal clear audio up to 100 feet away. For added clarity and versatility, the MP3 AirLink supports up to eight selectable audio channels and multiple receivers so that a single audio source can be in multiple locations. An auto scan feature will locate the best audio channel.

"More and more people are using their home PCs or iPods to store their music collection rather than CDs or other media," commented Tarun Bhasin, Senior Product Manager at StarTech.com. "The MP3 AirLink was developed to bridge today's portable music devices with the stereo system that most people already have in their homes. It's a cost -effective solution that provides consumers with the best of both worlds, the convenience of digital music and the quality output of a home stereo."

Operating at a 2.4 GHz frequency, the MP3 AirLink supports input/output from both RCA audio and 3.5mm headphone jacks and works with any audio source with an audio out connector.

This software independent product combines high quality performance with a sleek, stylish design that will blend seamlessly with any home decor. A small footprint simplifies installation and makes it easy to connect your electronic audio sources to outdoor speakers or portable stereos.

Making the leap into the convergence market, the MP3 AirLink also provides an effortless solution for enjoying Webcast programming on an existing stereo.

StarTech.com's MP3 AirLink (part # MP3AUDIOEXT) is priced at $92.99 US MSRP and can be found at leading A/V resellers such as CDW, Buy.com and Amazon.com.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
