onkyo1If you’re in the market for a new set of speakers, Onkyo might have something for you in the form of the GX-W100HV, a pair of bookshelf speakers that is more than meets the eye. Yes, if you were expecting a regular pair of speakers, you’ll be in for a surprise as the Onkyo GX-W100HV will sport DLNA support on top of everything else.

The master speaker incorporates 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and will utilize WiFi Protected Setup (WPS) to connect to your router. When the speakers are connected to your router, gadgets and devices that are DLNA capable should be able to find the speakers and connect to them. However if you already have a sound system set up that you particularly like, the Onkyo GX-W100HV can reportedly be incorporated to them via optical and analog inputs.

As far as the speakers’ specs are concerned, they are capable of outputting 15 watts per channel, with each speaker sporting a 12cm A-OMF woofer and a 3cm tweeter that has apparently been tuned for vocals in mind. The speakers are expected to go on sale in Japan come 18th of February for 40,000 Yen (~$520), although no word from Onkyo if they have plans to bring the GX-W100HV into international markets.
