iTunes to stereo/headphones wirelessly

in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
I wish Apple would create a device that would wirelessly connect my computer to my stereo and/or to headphones, so I could listen to iTunes throughout the house.

I listen to internet radio a lot through iTunes, and would like have it piped elsewhere at home. Is it feasible? Is there already a device that does this?

    Eh? RF headphones exist. RF tranceivers exist.

    Bluetooth headphones for music and headsets for phones already exist, so I'd say yes, one day it will happen.

    That looks cool. I want to transmit music from my PowerMac directly to my stereo. I don't want to have to go through an iPod. Remember, I want to send internet radiio signals through iTunes to my stereo.


    Do you know of any devices that can accomplish this task for the Mac? Let me know - I'll buy.

    I think you already have the solution.

    The Belkin product above, like the iRock and other FM transmitters, only require a stereo mini out. The headphone out on the ipod is the same size as the headphone out on the PowerBook, iBook and the Towers.

    So almost any FM transmitter, with the exception of the iTrip, should work.

    There's already at least a half-dozen devices that will stream music in MP3 and and Windows Media (possibly AIFF also, unfortunately not AAC yet) wirelessly over 802.11b. Start at around $99. I'm too lazy to find links to any.

    The iRocks only transmit 5-10 feet at most. You need a RF (900 mhz or 2.4 ghz) connector. Has a receiver near your stereo and connects with RCA plugs, and the transmitter hooks up to your computer with a mini jack plug. I cant remember who makes the one I saw but I know that there are more than one model out there.
