Aperion Audio, a consumer direct maker of award-winning home theater speaker systems, introduces the Aperion Home Audio Link (HAL), a wireless adapter which streams any audio format wirelessly from a computer, iPod, MP3 music player or mobile device to a variety of audio systems. By adding more HAL Receiver units the music can be distributed to up to three rooms. HAL is simple to use, utilizes a robust wireless link, and delivers high quality sound at a comparably affordable price.
Many music libraries are stored on computers, MP3 players, and other mobile devices which are restricted to small, built-in speakers. By using Aperion’s HAL, music lovers can hear great sound wherever they want in the home, on the type of sound system they prefer. The Aperion HAL gives users a choice, setting the music free and enabling it to be heard on the best audio system available, such as a home theater speaker system. HAL can also be used to wirelessly connect a powered subwoofer.
To hear music from a laptop computer, for example, the user simply plugs the matchbox sized HAL Send unit into a computer’s USB port, connects the HAL Receive unit into an AV receiver, plugs in the power adapter and the system links automatically. Unlike many wireless products on the market today, HAL does not require a Wi-Fi network or software installation. The HAL gives new meaning to the phrase “plug and play”.
“Our customers have been asking our Home Theater Gurus for advice on wireless audio systems; we set out to find a reliable technology that we could advocate,” said Mike Hopkins, Aperion Audio’s Product Development Manager. “We created HAL to give consumers the opportunity to listen to all of their music or favorite internet radio stations wirelessly on their preferred sound systems and we’ve been able to do it simply with an elegant, affordable solution.”
