SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Griffin Technology introduced two further products at Macworld Expo, the BlueTrip wireless Bluetooth audio adapter for iPod, and FireWave, a FireWire box that delivers 5.1 surround sound to Mac users.
BlueTrip consists of a receiver unit that plugs into a home stereo and an adapter that sits on top of the iPod. Think of it as Griffinis iTrip meets BlueTooth. A BlueTrip equipped can transmit its audio to the BlueTrip receiver up to 30 feet away from the stereo. It is available now for pre-order for $149.99 and is slated to ship later this quarter.
FireWave is a unique, bus-powered device that delivers 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound to Macs through a FireWire port. With FireWave, FireWire-equipped Mac users can take full advantage of the 5.1 computer speaker systems on the market. FireWave will ship in the first quarter of the year; pre-orders are being taken now for $99.99.
