What Is The Best Way To Stream Music From Your IPod?

Most people use a pair of small headphones when listening to their iPod. While these headphones are convenient for use when on the road, the sound quality is not exactly optimal. A much better choice is using a pair of good speakers. Rather than having the speakers tethered to your iPod, you may have discovered that there are ways to stream the music from your iPod wirelessly. I will take a look at some of the ways to stream your music and investigate the pros and cons of each method.

The fisrt method is by using a dedicated transmitter such as an ipod docking station from Amphony. Once the iPod is plugged into the transmitter cradle, the audio is extracted from the iPod through the dock connector and then converted to digital data. This data is then sent to a pair of wireless speakers up to 600 feet away. The main benefit of this method is the large range and also the possibility to stream to several speakers throughout the house.

Another option is to make use of the wireless functionality of the iPod such as WiFi, Bluetooth or Airplay. Airplay speakers are fairly expensive due to the technology being new and the production quantity being small. Bluetooth speakers are usually cheaper but the range is limited to 100 feet at most.
