Boot Camp feature for Monday, November 4, 2013

More choices in wireless audio for the home.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   There’s more competition these days in the market for wireless speaker systems.   Sonos, one of the pioneers in the business…has announced the under two hundred dollar SONOS PLAY:1.   The company is well known for its full featured apps, simplicity and rich sound.   But there are some worthy competitors.   DTS subsidiary Phorus is using its Play-Fi technology to delivery crisp, wireless sound.   GM Dannie Lau…

“It’s really the first technology that you can use that works over standard Wi-Fi to do reliable multi-room streaming.  And it can work with almost any music application.  So from your PC, you can use your Spotify app and stream directly to the speakers.  And you can do it with true multi-room streaming.”

The Phorus PS1 Speaker is priced at 199 dollars.  Play-Fi  is also the technology used by Core Brands in its Korus line of home audio speakers.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
