iHome iW1
AirPlay speaker system has Class D amplification and comes with standalone iPod/iPhone dock

More details have emerged of iHome's forthcoming iW1 AirPlay speaker system, which we first saw at CES Unveiled earlier in the week.

Due on sale in the UK during Q2 this year for £299, the iW1 is a one-piece active speaker system that streams music, metadata and album art from iTunes or your Apple portable via AirPlay using a wi-fi or ethernet connection.

Your music library can be controlled from a wi-fi equipped iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

The iHome iW1 also comes with a standalone iPod/iPhone dock that connects using a standard USB cable. Other features include a capacitive-touch control panel, an integrated handle in the back, and the brand's Bongiovi Acoustics DSP signal processing with Class D amplification.
