We’ve seen plenty of music docks over the years. However, most of them require you to actually dock your portable. Auris is hoping to set your music free with the skye Wi-Fi Music Receiver.
The skye can sit inside any 30-pin docking station. From there, it uses the power of AirPlay and DLNA to stream music wirelessly from almost any portable. That way, you don’t have to be without your favorite device to have music cranking. It works with the iPhone, iPad and iTunes, as well as Android and Windows Phone devices.
The skye boasts a very easy setup. Just add it to your Wi-Fi network and follow the instructions on the free skye control app.
Also worth noting is that company promises to deliver high-resolution audio from those portables. The skye uses Apple Lossless technology, digital amplification and a DAC (digital to analog converter).
“We’ve spent nearly a year perfecting this technology in order to eliminate the problems often encountered with the current music receivers on the market, such as pairing issues, low operation range, poor sound quality and limited compatibility with popular docks,” says Jay Shah, founder and CEO of Auris, Inc. “The simplicity behind a product that delivers such incredible results is our greatest accomplishment. It’s a real game-changer!”
Auris is currently looking to fund the skye, via Kickstarter. The company is hoping to raise $56,000 by Thursday, October 24, 2013. If you’re willing to make a pledge, you can secure the skye for as low as $64. Once the skye hits shelves, it will be listed with an MSRP of $89.
