Major components of the Wireless Home Audio system include:
- Director (DMC250) -- This stereo receiver offers a 50-watt per channel amplifier, and offers wired attachments to speakers, including an optional Stereo Speaker Kit (DSPK50). Measuring 6.3 x 5.8 x 6.9 inches, the Director provides a 3.5-inch, 320x240-pixel LCD display that can be controlled from the IR controller or the optional touchscreen Controller. In addition to offering built-in Wireless-N, the device is equipped with Ethernet and USB 2.0 ports, as well as extensive audio I/O and a connector for the optional iPOD docking station (see the spec list farther below).
- The Conductor -- This all-in-one version of the Director provides a larger, 7-inch LCD touchscreen, as well as an integrated CD player. The Conductor's amplifier drives its built-in speakers, and although designed primarily for standalone use, it can also distribute music throughout a house using the Player extender speakers. Full specs are not yet available, as unlike the other components, the Conductor has yet to ship.
- Player (DMP100) -- These Wireless-N extension speakers receive music feeds from the Director, Conductor, or other home theater receivers or stereo systems. The 5.4 x 2.4 x 5.5-inch, 1.3-lb speakers also offer Ethernet connections, as well basic audio I/O.
- Controller (DMWR1000) -- The Controller can control the above devices via its Wireless-N radio, without requiring line of sight. The tablet-like device is equipped with a 4.3-inch, 480 x 272-resolution color touchscreen and five-way thumbwheel navigation control. The 3.4 x 1.0 x 6.9-inch device comes with a 3000 mAH Li-Polymer battery pack with 100-240 VAC input, and can recharge via a Mini-USB port, says Cisco.
