June 4, 2005 Belkin's new TuneStage for iPod is a device that allows you to play the songs from your iPod through your home theatre wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. With a transmitter connected to your iPod and a receiver hooked up via RCA or 3.5mm to your system, TuneStage offers reliable, high-quality sound without cables. The TuneStage fits all-size iPod devices with a dock connector and will be available in Q3 2005 at a price around US$180. Wirelessly connected through TuneStage, your iPod becomes the ultimate remote, giving you absolute control of your music. Since the unit draws power directly from the iPod, it needs no batteries or extra cables.
TuneStage delivers high-quality sound through a home stereo environment. Using advanced Bluetooth v1.2 technology, TuneStage can transmit from up to 10 metres away from your stereo, free of the barriers that limit traditional remotes—such as walls, ceilings, or windows.
The TuneStage is available now.
