The AQ SmartSpeaker™ Wireless(A2) has all the great features of the original The AQ SmartSpeaker™ Portable (A1) but does not include a rechargeable battery. This makes it the ideal speaker to feature permanently in any room of the house.
The AQ SmartSpeaker™ Wireless (A2) works natively with almost all audio Apps on iOS using Apple's own AirPlay technology, making it easy to send your audio to a single speaker.
From iTunes on your Mac or PC, optionally controlled from your iOS Device using Apple's free "Remote" App, you can transmit your entire music library to multiple AQ SmartSpeakers™, which can be placed all around the house, either individually, or in stereo pairs, to create the ultimate multi-room audio system. (please note that iOS apps, including the Music App (formerly the iPod App) do not currently support streaming to multiple speakers)

Using the "play To" feature of Windows Media Player on Windows 7, you can set up independent playlists for each of your speakers (unfortunately, you can't sent the same playlist to several speakers). Using Nokia's free "Play To" App, you can even stream music from compatible Windows Phones.
