IOGEAR Lets Music Fans Rock from the Kitchen to the Living Room [01-07-2008]


Powerline Stereo System distributes music throughout the household using pre-existing power structure

LAS VEGAS – 2008 International CES – January 7, 2008 – Music enthusiasts can now enjoy their favorite tunes from their fixed and portable music devices in any room of the house or backyard with IOGEAR’s Powerline Stereo System. By connecting a pair of power speakers to the supplied adapter, the Powerline Stereo System transmits music to the user’s favorite rooms while reducing cable clutter. Whether entertaining guests in the home or hosting a poolside barbecue, music lovers can amplify their music sources to indoor and outdoor locations, adding extra life to any party. The product’s docking station comes with an iPod connection, 3.5mm input jack and RCA left and right channel inputs, enabling users to play music from CDs, MP3 players, computers and media centers at a 990-foot range. A remote control allows individuals to play, pause and skip through their iPod’s song selection. Consumers can plug up to four adapters into electrical outlets to distribute their music to several locations in a home or outside. “People dread the complicated configuration and high cost of outfitting their homes with an integrated, whole-house audio system,” said Miranda Su, vice president of sales and marketing at IOGEAR. “The Powerline Stereo System not only saves the consumer money, but eliminates tricky installation and additional wiring as it can be easily moved throughout the household.” IOGEAR’s Powerline Stereo System (GHPAKITW6) is available immediately from all major catalog and online resellers, as well as select retail outlets for $329.95 (MSRP). Without sacrificing bandwidth, the device’s 56-bit DES encryption ensures data security and low risk of interference with other RF sources. The product is also backward-compliant with HomePlug Powerline Specifications 1.0. It is on display at the 2008 International CES at IOGEAR’s booth (#36526) in South Hall 4.
