We can’t wait to get our hands on the iHome’s wireless speaker system. The iW1 enables music anywhere you have a home Wi-Fi network — it can receive music from AirPlay sources such as iTunes, iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad. It also supports charging and local audio playback via USB. The AirPlay iW1 is currently available in stores with the premium price of $300. However, we think the speaker is brilliant & minimalistic — a great design powered to please the discerning audiophile. Official news below:
