Belkin has announced the TuneStage II, a new version of its Bluetooth wireless iPod solution. The TuneStage II turns your iPod into “the ultimate remote control” so you can play the music from your iPod through your home entertainment system wirelessly. The device works from over 30 feet away and features Bluetooth v2.0 technology, enhanced audio quality, improved rejection of interference, and lower power consumption than the previous model. The TuneStage II can also pair with Bluetooth-enabled devices such as headphones, car stereos, cell phones, and computers. Belkin said the TuneStage II will be available in late November for $150.
Belkin has also introduced the TuneCast 3, a new universal FM Transmitter that streams audio from any device with a 3.5mm headphone jack to an FM stereo receiver. The TuneCast 3 features cable management, a status indicator on the LED screen, and a 20-hour battery life (a power cord is included for battery-free operation). The device transmits on FM channels 88.1MHz – 107.9MHz with two memory presets. The TuneCast 3 will also be available in November for $50.
