Bose SoundLink Streams Music From Your PC via USBS

Following the trend of pretty much every other audio company, Bose's SoundLink is their first wireless streaming speaker. But oddly enough, instead of using Bluetooth or wi-fi, Bose opted to go with an RF USB dongle for data transfer.

The $550 speaker can transmit through rooms and walls (obviously), comes with a 3.5mm auxiliary jack and has a rechargable battery that lasts 3 hours. While the sound quality of this thing will more than likely be excellent, a USB dongle seems a bit janky (though I'm sure their filthy rich, technophile audience will love it).

It will be available on August 27. [BusinessWire via Dvice]
