Filed under: Portables

Among Belkin's offerings at this year's CES is the TuneStage 2, which provides a very slick way to play music from your iPod on your home stereo. The TuneStage 2 uses Bluetooth to turn your iPod into a wireless remote that is easily installed. Setup takes only minutes and requires no software or custom configuration. Just plug it in and enjoy your music.

TuneStage 2 stands apart from other wireless products by turning your iPod into the wireless remote. Now you can have complete control over all iPod functions in the palm of your hand. Effortlessly change playlists, search for artists or individual songs, and adjust volume-all through the iPod click wheel. TuneStage 2 takes you far beyond the limited forward/backward, volume up/down commands of other wireless products.

Featuring advanced Bluetooth v2.0 technology, TuneStage 2 provides enhanced audio quality, and improved rejection of interference. TuneStage 2 is fully backward-compatible with Bluetooth v1.2.

TuneStage 2 also functions as a charging dock for your iPod. A USB port is built into the receiver and the transmitter to allow charging your iPod without the need to remove the transmitter or stopping your music.

Over the years J. has constantly found himself to be an "early-adopter," spending way too much money on "new" technologies such as Compact Disc, LaserDisc, and DVD. He is one of the few people who actually purchased (and still owns) a CORE programmable remote control (bonus points if you remember this product).
