Ilive Speakers with your product


#1

I have “Ilive” speakers, but the Digital 2.4 GHz ISM wireless transmitter sucks, 2nd broken one and I haven’t owned it for a year. Will your (Plugable USB 2.0 Wireless Audio Adapter and Receiver (SYNIC chipset)) work on their speakers? Do you have a product that does?

Thanks mike

Hi Mike,

Thanks for posting! We don’t have any iLike speakers around. Quick question: do the speakers themselves have a 3.5mm audio input (which bypasses their wireless stuff)?

If not, unfortunately there wouldn’t be a way to re-using the speakers with our kit.

We don’t know what chipset they use, so we can’t guess on over-the-air compatibility, but would have to assume they use a different technology than we do (assume they don’t use a SYNIC chipset), so therefore wouldn’t be compatible over the air.

Hope that helps - let us know if you have any other clues which might help us to speculate in more detail.

Thanks!
Bernie

Bernie,

They do have 3.5mm audio input! Is their a product that you offer that can cover this?

Thanks

Hi Mike,

If the speakers themselves have standard 3.5mm audio input, then they will work with our Wireless Audio Adapter and Receiver. http://plugable.com/products/usb2-synic/

(also watch the setup video at http://plugable.com/2011/02/24/settin… )

The range of wireless varies a lot, depending on environment, so it will be interesting to see if we’re able to provide a better distance/experience than you got with the ilive speakers themselves. Let us know!

Bernie
