Belkin today announces the Soundform Connect, a new audio adapter that turns any traditional stereo speaker into an Apple AirPlay 2-enabled speaker. The Soundform Connect allows users to seamlessly stream audio without the hassle of pairing devices. Once the device is connected to any powered speaker or sound system with an optical or 3.5mm input, a user can simply tap the AirPlay icon on their compatible Apple device to start playing music or other audio.
With AirPlay 2-enabled speakers, users can ask Siri via their iPhone to play their favorite music or podcasts throughout the house, ask what’s playing in each room, control the volume, and more. The adapter enables the speakers to be compatible with HomeKit, making it easy to assign them to different rooms and create scenes and automations in the Home app.
This new Belkin product is the latest in a series of product launches from Belkin as the company dives deeper into the audio space. Off the heels of its critically acclaimed Soundform Elite, a robust speaker in partnership with Devialet and its first foray into wireless sound with its Soundform True Wireless Earbuds, Belkin also recently announced the Soundform Freedom True Wireless Earbuds, one of the first third-party accessories to work with Apple’s Find My Network.
- Connect to any existing powered speaker/receiver using optical or 3.5mm input (widespread compatibility)
- Compact and portable for minimal space requirement
The Soundform Connect is available for purchase on Belkin.com with availability in select retailers coming soon and is competitively priced at US$99.99.
