Wireless audio transmitter and receiver
The W1 Wireless Audio Adapter is a solid audio product, but one that’s not right for everyone. If your audio-streaming needs are confined to moving music from your wireless-networking-equipped computer to a set of speakers, an AirPort Express Base Station will do the job for $50 less than the W1 (plus provide a host of other useful networking features). But if you need more from an audio streaming setup–to stream music from your iPod or iPhone, or from a stereo receiver here to speakers over there–the W1 is a worthwhile way to go.
