Philips Introduces New AirPlay Products at CE Week 2011

At the CE Week 2011 event in New York City, Philips has unveiled new AirPlay-compatible speakers that will allow Mac and iOS users to beam audio from their devices to the external speakers instantly, without the need of an AirPort Express station. These speakers, in fact, come with AirPlay integration built-in thanks to a wireless chip that uses the licensed AirPlay technology to allow users to stream audio from mobile devices.

Following the Fidelio SoundSphere speaker unveiled back in March, Philips has outed four new products of the Fidelio line, all compatible with AirPlay, as reported by iLounge: the Fidelio SoundSphere DS6800W, the Fidelio DS8800W, the circular Fidelio DS3881W, and the Fidelio AD7000W. With the exception of the DS8800W shipping this July at $400, Philips’ new speakers will be available this holiday season with prices ranging from $229 to $500.

Engadget has also posted a hands-on with Philips’ new AirPlay speakers, you can check out the embedded video after the break and read the original report and with photo gallery here.
