Griffin Technology Inc. has released the BlueTrip, a wireless transmitter/receiver for broadcasting CD-quality audio from an iPod to a home stereo.
Using Bluetooth technology, BlueTrip can transmit up to 30 feet (10m) away from a home stereo, without the traditional barriers of line of sight.
The BlueTrip receiver comes with RCA plugs as well as optical and mini-jack output, and it can be integrated into any stereo configuration.
"When I'm at home with my high-end sound system I want the best acoustic integrity possible from my iPod," said Paul Griffin, president of Griffin Technology, "Digital wireless Bluetooth audio is the answer. BlueTrip delivers the ideal home wireless solution, and it lets me keep my iPod close at hand."
Griffin BlueTrip includes a remote unit and an iPod transmitter. Price has been set at US$149 and shipments begin in the first quarter of 2005.
