Sony Vaio VGF-WA1 Music Streamer: Fill the Air with Audio

This speaker system plays your PC's shared music wirelessly within a range of about 65 feet. Though very easy to set up, its limited remote and slow transfer speeds tarnish what would otherwise be an amazing product.

Too often, when products interact with your PC via Wi-Fi, making them talk to each other can be pain. Not so with the simple installation of the Sony VAIO VGF-WA1 Music Streamer. Yes, it's Vista compatible, and you can use either your own wireless router or the included USB adapter.

There are drawbacks. The remote isn't terribly useful without a display, and the Web radio streaming function doesn't scroll song information across the screen. Most people will also find the 128MB of internal memory too small and slow during file transfer. On the upside, the device sounds good with a little tweaking.

The Music Streamer's price may seem a bit high, but I think gaining the ability to fill your home with wireless audio makes it money well spent.
