Aperion Audio recently launched the second generation of the Aperion Zona Home Audio Link (HAL) System. Like its predecessor, the new HAL System allows users to send music and movie sound wirelessly to audio systems anywhere in the home. The second-generation HAL System also employs the latest wireless technology to provide reportedly enhanced fidelity and the capability to stream to an unlimited number of audio systems or Aperion Zona speakers–at no additional cost.

The Aperion Zona HAL System consists of a compact wireless transmitter and receiver. Compatible with virtually every MP3 player, computer, receiver, or other audio device, music fans can connect the Zona HAL via computer USB port or a headphone jack and listen on speakers throughout their homes. For greater flexibility, they can place Aperion Zona Wireless speakers where they desire and let the music follow–even outdoors. Movie buffs can use HAL to connect audio wirelessly from their audio/video receiver to powered subwoofers or surround speakers.
The transmitter can feed an endless number of additional HAL receivers, the company claims. Once connected, the system streams uncompressed 16 bit/48 kHz CD-quality audio. HAL also accommodates up to three simultaneous channels, so that at the press of a button users can select any of three “zones” to receive the selected music to different sound systems.
The Aperion Zona HAL System (one transmitter, one receiver) is priced at $149. Additional receivers are available for $70. The one (1)-year limited warranty covers all defects in material and workmanship
