Onkyo's latest speakers get Wi-Fi WPS setup, DLNA

Onkyo has introduced a pair of bookshelf speakers that are special in that they have built-in Wi-Fi and DLNA support for streaming audio files from a local network. The setup part of the equation is kept simple too, as the only way to connect them to a network is through Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) and a dedicated button. The GX-W100HV speakers can also connect using traditional inputs such as optical and RCA.

A subwoofer output is present to add bass. Each satellite is rated at 15W and contains a 4.7-inch main driver along with a 1.2-inch tweeter. Onkyo tuned the tweeter to reproduce voices realistically, which could prove useful for listening to podcasts.

The main speaker contains the Wi-Fi radio along with a two-band equalizer, input selector, and headphone input on the front. The speakers will come to Japan on February 18, priced at 40,000 yen (about $520). There is no word on a release outside of the home country. [via Impress]
