Logitech Wireless DJ Music System lets you stream music from your PC to your stereo

If you want to play music without being tied to your PC, Logitech’s Wireless DJ Music System could be the answer. The system features an intuitive remote control that works with a USB transmitter that plugs into your PC. The transmitter sends the tunes to a receiver plugged into your home stereo, so you don’t have to be at your computer
or your stereo to access your digital music library.

A wizard walks you through an easy setup, and then you can stream music from your PC to your stereo, including content from iTunes, Rhapsody, and Yahoo! Music Unlimited. The system can also be set to pick up internet radio stations.

With a powerful Bluetooth profile, the system supports up to 4 wireless receivers and has a rated range of 165 feet, so you can play music in most rooms in a typical home.

The remote control features a mechanical scroll wheel and large, intuitive displays and controls. The battery will typically last for a few days, and it recharges in about 3 hours. The only drawback is an occasional delay of a few seconds after you select your music, and a slight lag time when you’re scrolling through a long list of music.

Still, the sound quality is good for Bluetooth, and users report very little interference or noise, thanks to the adaptive frequency-hopping technology.

The Logitech Wireless DJ Music System retails for $249.99 It only works with Windows, but we’re hoping they’ll create a version for Mac OS X in the near future.
