Audioengine Introduces W2 Premium Wireless Adapter for iPod

FORT COLLINS, CO – Dec 7, 2008 – Audioengine announces the release of the Audioengine W2 Premium Wireless Adapter for iPod. The Audioengine W2 turns your iPod into the Ultimate Wireless Remote, allowing you to play all your songs wirelessly from your iPod to any stereo system without any compromise in audio quality.

Plug the digital Sender into your iPod and connect the included Receiver to your stereo and you’ll have complete control of your music from your iPod. No need to learn how to work a separate remote and the AW2 is super-easy to hook up, with no batteries needed.

“It’s exciting to have another wireless product to compliment our already successful AW1 wireless adapter.” said Brady Bargenquast, Audioengine co-founder. “The Audioengine W2 gives you the convenience of using your iPod as a remote control and is the perfect way to get great quality music wirelessly to your stereo.”

Why buy a dock?
Think of the Audioengine W2 as the “dockless dock”. With a rock-solid wireless connection that beats Bluetooth, FM, and even other 2.4MHz systems, the AW2 is pre-configured out of the box so there are no buttons to push and no software to configure.

“The best thing about the W2 is that not only do you no longer need a dock, but your wireless music will actually sound better than most wired docks.” explained Dave Evans, Audioengine co-founder.

Tech Stuff
The AW2 uses uncompressed CD-quality transmission technology with no network setup, software, or computer required. The Wi-Fi-based wireless is an all-digital PCM encoded stream sent over a closed network that includes some clever error correction and low latency, which means that your music gets to your stereo fast without any lag, loss in sound quality or interference.
