Wireless Audio with AirPlay®
Lets you enjoy music anywhere in your home.
Wirelessly stream music from the iTunes library on your iPad/iPhone/iPod touchor PC/Mac to the HC57 or AP01 and enjoy it anywhere in your home. The music is streamed as lossless data, so there is no loss of sound quality from compression. And since there is no disc drive nearby, mechanical operating noise won't interfere with your enjoyment.
By installing a Remote Control App onto your iPhone or iPod touch, you can easily operate your HC57/AP01 by simply tapping and flicking on your iPhone or iPod touch. In addition to the remote control functions, you can also use screen operations to open the main unit's door, and to adjust the equalizer and other settings.
Remote Control App for HC57/AP01 must be downloaded from the App Store (iTunes Store).
For this function, a wireless LAN environment is required.
System Requirements: iPod touch 3rd generation or later, iPhone 3GS or later, iOS version 4.2 or later

This feature positions the musical instruments in a surround configuration and accentuates the vocals in the center so you feel enveloped by the vocals. Enjoy the same great ambience as if you were listening to a live performance in an actual concert hall. Nanosized Bamboo Cone SpeakerClearer and more beautiful vocals
Finer bamboo fibers than were used in the 2011 models enable this new cone speaker to reproduce clear, fresh natural tones with minimal distortion.
