Another new product from Audioengine is their AW1 Wireless Adapter kit, which are fascinating in how simple they are: power comes from the USB connection, so you either connect it to a PC, or to a USB AC power adaptor. Then you have an RCA or 3.5mm mini-jack connector on each device, where you connect a sending device to one, and a receiving device to another. Simple yet very useful in a variety of situations, especially when coupled with the Audioengine A5 speakers that have a powered USB port. Hopefully I'll be able to test these out once I get my back-log of reviews finished, but off the top of my head I'm thinking it would be cool to have a pass-through USB port on them so that you could connect the AW1 to a USB to AC power adaptor, but still have power for an MP3 player to connect to the pass-through USB port. Maybe for v2.
