Logitech Wireless Music System for PC
7 August 2006
Summary: The Logitech Wireless Music System can wirelessly stream any audio file format from your PC to your home stereo system, but you'll have to fly blind because it doesn't have a visual user interface.
Pros: The Logitech Wireless Music System for PC wirelessly streams any audio format--including purchased iTunes songs--from a PC to a home stereo, regardless of copy protection or digital rights management. It offers reliable wireless audio transmission, decent sound quality, and easy setup, and it doesn't require a Wi-Fi network.
Cons: The Logitech Wireless Music System lacks a visual user interface and offers limited remote control functions that work only with certain audio-player applications. The system's default configuration disables your PC speakers when it's in use. There are no digital audio outputs, the optional Music Anywhere software is unrefined, and the package is fairly pricey.
Excerpt: When the Sonos music system was released, it was a terrific concept executed well, but in a very pricey package. What about the rest of us that want to stream our PC music to another room without breaking the bank? Logitech seems to have the answer with their affordable Bluetooth Wireless Music System for PC. Can it offer good audio quality, range, and performance? We’ve got the answer ahead!
Conclusion: Perhaps you, like many others have discovered that your MP3's have become imprisoned in your PC and the cost of getting them out with fancy streaming gadgets is just too high! fear no longer as we review the latest in cost effective wireless audio from Logitech.
Summary: Logitech's Wireless Music system uses proven Bluetooth technology and has excellent audio quality and signal range, whether the Wireless Headset or Wireless Music receiver box are used. But while it's nice to be able to have multiple receivers and switch among them, we found it disappointing not to be able to use more than one reciever at a time.
Also, it would be nice to have a transmitter module that is not restricted to USB and Windows PC use.
