669661.jpg

Sony today announced the new wireless HomeShare audio system that allows users to listen to music from their Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified PC and Sony Blu-ray Disc devices throughout the home over Wi-Fi (802.11b/g).

The new HomeShare products include two wireless network speakers (SA-N300 and SA-N400) and two Wi-Fi network iPhone docks (NAS-SV20i and NAC-SV10i). The company also introduced a new Wi-Fi universal remote (RMN-U1) that works with the system as well.

The HomeShare system frees user's music from being tied down to a specific device. The system uses an existing Wi-Fi home network with broadband Internet connection to stream music from a PC or from integrated BRAVIA Internet music services such as Slacker Internet Radio and vTuner, to each speaker via a compatible Sony Blu-ray Disc player, Blu-ray Disc home theater system or one of the new HomeShare docking devices.

The speakers can playback different music or can all be synced to one source with Sony's unique PartyStreaming feature. Also, users can control the system via a PC, Sony's new Wi-Fi universal remote, or an iPhone, iPod touch, using a free application that can be downloaded from the app stores.

The products are aesthetically pleasing, making them appropriate for any decor, and they deliver the superb audio quality consumers expect from Sony devices.
