Pioneer offer home network audio through power lines

Home audio

Pioneer’s MT-01 Power Line Sound System is a home audio system that links together up to 6 networked speakers throughout the home via regular power cabling.

The Sound Station control unit features two USB ports, 1 audio input and 2 analogue inputs and can play one or two audio sources around the connected speakers. It also features motion sensors which will turn the speakers on when someone enters the room, though I could imagine that becoming a little annoying after a while.

It also comes with a remote control that will interact with the speakers.

The standard MT-01 package includes a Sound Station main unit, one large 2 x 25W Network Speaker, a small 5W Network Speaker and a keyring-sized remote control. Both the large and small speakers will also be available separately, so you can build your system according to your own household requirements.

It’s due to be available at the end of the month, price to be confirmed.
