If at the moment you currently have a pretty good sound system setup, but one of the downsides is that it does not feature AirPlay compatibility, well fret not. The folks at Bicom are looking to change that with the introduction of the playGo AP1, an AirPlay receiver that will allow users to bring AirPlay to any home stereo sound system, thus allowing users to stream music wirelessly from their iOS onto their sound system. If you’re an audiophile worried about the potential loss of quality due to the wireless transfer, the folks at Bicom have stated that the equipment found in the playGo AP1 uses the same audio equipment found in devices priced $1,000 or higher.

Alternatively if you don’t own an iOS device, the playGo AP1 will also feature DLNA support, both of which will come combined in a single device so you will be able to choose between AirPlay or DLNA. If this sounds like a great idea, the bad news is that the playGo AP1 is currently a Kickstarter project seeking funding, so if you enjoyed Bicom’s playGo USB and you’d like to see the playGo AP1 made a reality, head on over to its Kickstarter page for the details!
