Several major brands have launched wireless audio systems, looking to combine sound output with new delivery systems such as Bluetooth and the latest in wireless technology.
Initially the Hi Fi industry was sceptical that wireless Hi Fi could deliver quality Hi Fi and wireless distribution combined, but the Danish company Dynaudio has proved that the combination of top end Hi Fi audio knowledge and the latest in wireless technology can work together to deliver an exceptional sound experience.
This new system, which is already winning global awards, is excellent when compared to what is available in the market today. With the Dynaudio Xeo range you not only get high quality output without having to run cables, but you can plug in a smartphone or tablet and immediately get access to your content. The Dynaudio Xeo 3 and Xeo 5 wireless speakers are already being labelled "the world's first high-end wireless loudspeakers," by European reviewers.
The compact bookshelf and floor standing active speakers connect wirelessly to Dynaudio's Xeo wireless transmitter, which is wired to your music source.

The Xeo transmitter has digital optical, USB, stereo analogue and 3.5mm mini jack inputs that allow users to connect to three sources, with selection between optical, USB and analogue.
The Xeo transmitter can wirelessly support up to three pairs of speak- ers, giving owners the potential for a three-room, multi-room system or to play music from three separate sources.
While this set up is not cheap at RRP $2, 499 for the Xeo 3 system and RRP $4, 799 for the Xeo 5 system, it is not unreasonable when one takes into account the audio technology that has been wrapped around the wireless technology. Each set of speakers comes with its own remote, allowing you to switch between inputs on each set of speakers and adjust the volume.
