Wireless audio for Mac - wireless LAN?

by rjml / November 9, 2003 11:00 AM PST

Hello, I recently purchased a 17" iMac and am really loving it. I won't say it's infinitely better than a PC but it is very functional. I love iLife, specifically iTunes. I'm looking for a way to pipe music through the home from the Mac. I've seen reviews for he Kima KS-100 and the USR 6003 wireless audio transmitters but was wondering if anyone knew of any recievers that would work with an existing wifi network. I've seen something from cd30 but it looks to be Windows specific. Any thoughts?

I have the USR 6003, but haven't unpacked it yet. It looks like a non-specific wireless solution to moving sound from here to there.

I have a set of powered speakers to team up with it when the day comes to set it up. Cost for such was cheap cheap and the powered speakers were something on sale at office max. I'm no sound-nut, but will write an issue I know about.

There is an annoying issue with piping music across the house. The delay of the sound waves from one end of the house to another causes an annoying delay and the effect diminishes how good the sound is if you can hear both places at once.

I've found it better to not try to fill the home with sound, but let it have zones.
