ROCKI - Thoughts? (play streaming music on ANY speaker via WiFi, computer or Android / iPhone)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Been checking out various dongles or receivers to stream music to speakers (especially dumb / non-wifi enabled speakers).

 

And found this great Kickstarter project. Enable ANY speaker to get music wirelessly (stream from your phone, use your better bookshelf or tower speakers). About the size of a small smartphone and is portable (room to room, location).

Each unit is $49 if using analog connections, if you want digital connections, looks like they just added an upgraded version for $89. I like the fact of Wifi having a much longer distance vs. bluetooth dongles (limited to 10' or so).

Thoughts? Anything other products that you'd recommend me considering?

 

(Edit: Wasn't sure if this belongs another section since this solution can be for computers or Android / iPhones). I can rebuild this post if needed)

Things like this make me wonder what rock people have been living under when they design them, it's essentially just a sqeezebox for one. Then 2 free apps and cheap android phones can do exactly the same thing, but still be used to control other things or even send youtube videos to a tv as well.

 

I just can't see a benefit...
