Contest time!  We haven’t run a contest in awhile so when the opportunity came up to review and give out an i2i Stream 2-pack I jumped at it.  These little buggers can transmit audio wirelessly from just about any device and broadcast it through any device.  So, if you have a laptop full of music on your dining room table and you want to play sound from it through your home audio system that is in your living room, simply plug in one unit to the laptop and the other to your home audio system, i2i Stream takes care of the rest.  What else can you do with them?  Say you are going on a long road trip and two of you want to listen to the same music from an iPod or similar mp3 player but one person is in the front seat and the other is in the back.  Plug one i2i Stream into the iPod and give the other to the person with just headphones, the music will now stream between the two!

There are lots of applications for this product, anything that makes sound and anything that receives sound can use them.  How good does it really work?  Check out the perfect 5-star rating they get from people who have used them on Amazon.com.  Point is, these are really cool, and worth over $100! For the best home audio experience try connecting this device with a home speaker system that truly delivers.
