    ABX-N300 offers AirPlay as well as Wi-Fi

    Onkyo are the latest manufacturer to announce a new wireless music system, the ABX-N300 iOnly Stream. Equipped with wireless home networking, AirPlay, and a digital dock for iPod/iPhone.

    AirPlay lets users stream tracks from an iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, or iTunes-equipped personal computer to the ABX-N300 over the home Wi-Fi network.

    Inbuilt wireless networking allows the playback of a range of audio formats stored on computer or media server, including FLAC, WAV, and WMA Lossless. A wide selection of internet radio stations and personalized cloud streaming services are also available for the user to explore. A 3.5mm analogue audio input allows connection of just about anything else to it.

    The ABX-N300 has a direct-digital dock for iPod/iPhone, a 128 x 64-dot LCD, and dust-free touch sensor buttons mounted in the top panel and a sliding aluminum cover protects the dock and controls when not in use.

    The combination of two full-range bass-reflex speakers and Active Bass Control delivers the sound.

    The ABX-N300’s styling, says Onkyo, is a blend of form and function. The flat back panel allows for neat display on bookshelves, kitchen cabinets, or against walls and its surfaces are designed to be easy to keep clean.

    It should be available next month with a suggested retail price of £300.

    If Apple choose to change the dock port then the internet will come crashing down, yes. But it has not happened yet :cool:
