iSymphony tunes up Bluetooth wireless hi-fi

High performance access to file storage

Will you please welcome iSymphony's latest music centre, a wall-mounted or shelf-stacked - the choice is yours - hi-fi that can connect to any Bluetooth device capable of streaming stereo sound wirelessly.

iSymphony V1BLUEe wireless music centre

The V1BLUEe packs in a CD player, an RDS-equipped FM tuner, a pair of 10W front-facing speakers and a 25W sub-woofer round the back. The unit has a USB port to allow you to hook up Flash drives, MP3 players and the like, and a three-in-one memory card reader lets it play songs stored on SD, MMC and Memory Stick cards. It'll even rip tracks to these storage devices.

But it's the Bluetooth A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) support that stands out, allowing it to pick up wireless sound, and to control gadgets that support Bluetooth's AVRCP (Audio Video Remote Control Protocol) technology.

Phones, computers, wireless music players can all feed the V1BLUEe, which comes with a wireless iPod dock to allow that non-wireless player to stream songs to the hi-fi too. The system can also transmit to Bluetooth headphones.

The V1BLUEe is due to go on sale in July, iSymphony said, for around £250.
