AudioCast, AmpCast

Showing at the CEDIA 2007 expo, Soundcast Systems has unveiled two new wireless audio products (not pictured), both aimed at custom audio setups. The Universal AudioCast Transmitter is primarily meant to connect to Windows PCs via USB, turning a computer into a music server; in tandem with the appropriate 2.4GHz receiver, users can stream music up to 350 feet away, and control basic functions such as play, pause and track skip. Compatible software includes iTunes, Windows Media Player and more. For non-computer use, the UAT also has an RCA input and an external power supply. A latency switch can direct audio to rear-channel speakers.

The AmpCast is one of the possible receivers, but differs in that it amplifies the incoming signal, providing a 30W boost. Its frequency response ranges from 20Hz to 20kHz, and it comes with its own remote control, as well as on-unit buttons for adjusting volume and balance. It connects to speakers using bare-wire attachments, either in push-clip or screw-down form. Both the UAT and AmpCast are due in early 2008; prices have not been decided.
