VTech is a company that is more closely associated with cordless phones and kids toys than streaming Internet radio devices. Any parent probably has a few of the company’s toys in their home; you would know them by the incessant noise they all seem to make.
VTech has announced that its new IS9181 wireless music hub is now available for purchase. The device connects to 802.11b/g wireless networks and offers access to thousands of streaming Internet radio stations. The device has a pair of front firing 3W speakers and a single 10W sub.
Music from Mac and PCs can be played over the device in MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, and Real formats. Any device with a 3.5mm headphone jack can be connected to the IS9181 and it can be connected to other components via RCA jacks. The IS9181 is available now for $199.95.
