Engadget.com: Jealous of your iOS-wielding mates and their fancy AirPlay docks? If so, Aperion Audio is looking provide some relief. The outfit has revealed the ARIS, a wireless speaker that makes use of the Play To feature that resides within the Windows OS. You can expect WiFi or Ethernet connectivity via your home network at the push of a button, enabling the 100W RMS speaker to blast your tunes from across the room without creating a cable obstacle course. The kit is housed in a brushed aluminum enclosure that rests atop an adjustable / removable steel base and features three sounds modes for your listening pleasure: natural, bass boost and enhanced stereo. There’s also an ARIS app that allows you to select music from any device on the network for playback on the speaker — transforming your smartphone into a remote control of sorts. Should the need arise for wired streaming (via non-Windows devices, we’d surmise), an auxiliary jack resides on the speaker’s backside. If you’re looking to snag one, it’ll set you back $499.
