New Wireless MP3 Player – PC to HiFi

Just found this. Only available in the States at present and costing around 100 US Dollars.

“Now you can listen to all your PC based MP3’s and Internet Audio from the comfort of your living room. The new RCA Lyra Wireless transmitter and receiver send crystal clear digital audio from your PC to your stereo. Included is a Universal Remote Control so you can surf your collection from the other room. The RCA Lyra Wireless is the simply best way to listen to your digital music selection away from your PC! Targeted at consumers who want to enjoy the vast collection of digital audio files stored on their PC on a home stereo system, the RCA LYRA Wireless system (model RD900W) uses Thomson’s proprietary Digital Sound Mix technology to transmit 900mhz signals at near CD-quality up to a range of 100 feet. Using a transmitter that connects to the PC via a USB connection and a receiver that plugs into the home stereo system via a standard RCA audio jack, the RD900W plays PC-based music through a stereo system or bookshelf audio system.

“Thomson has been a prominent player in the fast-growing digital audio marketplace since we developed the first RCA LYRA portable mp3 product in 1998, and we are continually looking for ways to improve the user experience by incorporating advanced technologies into the digital entertainment marketplace,” said Mark Redmond, Vice President, Worldwide Audio and Video. “The RCA LYRA Wireless accessory is targeted at the 15 million active users of jukebox-managed PC content and Internet audio listeners seeking alternatives for listening to digital quality music files on a home stereo, instead of just in front of the personal computer.”

The RD900W integrates with MusicMatch software, enabling users to create playlists and organize their library of digital music files using ID3 tag song data to display artist, album, song title and genre; and Internet audio files can be played directly from a website. Signal strength indicators enable a rapid visual setup of the RD900W’s transmitter and receiver for maximum performance.

The RCA LYRA Wireless system includes a radio frequency (RF) remote control, which can be operated from anywhere in the house, that enables the user to adjust volume, skip songs, or choose between sources of music on the PC (such as mp3 files, CDs, or Internet radio) even when the PC is in another room. The universal remote control can also operate most features of RCA audio and video products.

The RCA LYRA Wireless system is packaged with a free 30 day trial for RadioMX from MusicMatch and specially marked packages will also offer a free 30 day trial for’s Rhapsody music subscription service. The RD900W is available now, at a suggested retail price of 99.00 US Dollars.
