Wireless stereo connection system that lets you use your iPod as its own remote.
Belkin’s TuneStage is a unique product that avoids the limitations of most iPod remote controls by making the iPod itself your remote. The system has a few drawbacks, such as the fact that it shortens your iPod’s playback time when you’re already likely to be using the iPod off its own battery, as well as the less-than-audiophile limitations of the Bluetooth protocol. The TuneStage is also significantly more expensive than any of the other solutions we’ve covered for connecting your iPod to your home stereo. But it provides crystal-clear, wireless audio that all but the most demanding listeners will enjoy–and once you’ve used your iPod itself to transmit and control your music, traditional iPod remotes seem clunky and limiting.
