LASER turns speaker systems with 'AUX in' wireless

By

Australian-owned tech brand LASER has launched its Wireless Wi-Fi Adaptor, which, at $99 ,turns any speaker system with "AUX in" into a wirelessly accessible and app-controlled modern speaker system.

There are plenty of devices out there that want to deliver multi-room audio. Companies such as SONOS have been doing this for years, while Google’s circular Chromecast device can be paired up with an Android phone to do the same.

LASER’s Wi-FI adaptor doesn’t use Bluetooth but instead Wi-Fi or Ethernet, as is compatible with DLNA and Qualcomm’s AlPlay standard, which can be turned into a multiroom wireless speaker system.

The company naturally bills its Wi-Fi adaptor as being part of the next generation of wireless music, promising "better sound with no dropouts".

If your home audio system has either a 3.5mm Audio out or Optical Audio socket, you can then use LASER’s Wi-Fi adaptor has connected to either of those sockets.

The free AllPlay Jukebox app (here on iOS and here on Android), lets you "send music from streaming services, from your own playlist, from Internet radio" to one or many speakers, whether it’s LASER branded speakers or other Qualcomm Allplay-compatible brands.

For those wondering, the "AllPlay smart media platform can connect across a variety of different brands with dual band Wi-Fi to connect more speakers with less interference and higher sound quality".

Multi-room capability means being able to connect to a maximum of 10 AllPlay speakers at the same time, but that the process is simple and easy.

LASER has a range of new Wi-Fi speakers here too, with more models promised. 

Key specs include:

  • Multi-speaker mode
  • 3.5mm AUX / Digital Optical Audio input
  • Weight: 105g
  • 12-month warranty
  • Wireless & DLNA connections
  • Compatible Qualcomm AllPlay brands: LASER, Panasonic, Lenco, Hitachi, Monster, Medion, Musaic, Gramofon

Interestingly, there are two special offers in August. First up is this $99 adapter currently selling, on special for a limited time, at $48.99. The second is an August promotion with 50% off sale for its ‘SPK-WFQ10 Wi-Fi Multiroom Speaker,' which features the Qualcomm AllPlay chip and a Spotify licence.

The company says its WFQ10 will "sync with multi-room audio speakers from a wide variety of AllPlay-compatible brands, allowing users to mix and match brands to accommodate individual preferences".
