Wirelessly connects Bluetooth enabled devices like iPhones or laptops to home stereo systems for music streaming
“Increasingly more and more people are using their iPhone or laptop as a Personal Entertainment Device (PED). The combination of stored music, videos and games, together with a plethora of streamed content from the internet, especially free music services, has transformed the way people access media,” said Bob Abraham, QED Founder.
But how do you ‘liberate’ this often protected content and wirelessly deliver a very high quality music stream to your sound system? Bluetooth is the only way to do this natively. Now, thanks to apt-X, you can enjoy wireless, streamed music with CD quality sound.
The new ‘puck’ shaped QED uPlay (pronounced ‘yoo-play’) is specifically designed to exploit this new and exciting opportunity in the form of a discreet Bluetooth Hi-Fi Receiver which incorporates the incredible apt-X Codec as well as the latest Bluecore 5 chipset.
QED uPlay seamlessly switches between the standard SBC Codec and apt-X, depending on the transmission source. uPlay is ideally suited to connect to an existing hi-fi system, home theater system or even the better quality iPod docks, fitted with an Aux in socket, thus enabling true wireless connectivity of a PED to your favorite sound system.
