Sony's New Wireless Multi-Room Audio Line

Sony has taken the wraps off of a new line of streaming audio products, dubbed "Altus." The four debut products will be available exclusively through Best Buy. All of the products use Sony's proprietary S-Air wireless technology to communicate with one another, which means that other S-Air-compatible products--including many of Sony's recent home theater and home audio systems--can stream audio to the Altus products. The lineup includes the ALT-SA31iR ($700): an iPod/iPhone docking station and two high-output wireless speakers alongside an AM/FM tuner and S-AIR remote that can stream to other S-AIR receivers. The AIR-SW10Ti ($400): an iPod dock consists of a compact docking station with two built-in speakers and a wireless sub-woofer. The ALT-SA32PC ($500): an S-AIR transmitter that connects to your PC (via USB input) and two wireless speakers.
