LAS VEGAS, Jan. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- International CES, Center Hall, Booth 10404-10415 -- Acoustic Research (AR), a wholly owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corporation (NASDAQ:VOXX), today unlocks the wireless potential built into virtually every iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod® touch, with their AirPlay Audio System. Now your iTunes® playlists can get high quality AR sound and stream your music wirelessly. Simply plug in the AR audio system to any 12-volt outlet, connect it to your WiFi network and instantly stream music wirelessly from any iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch in your network. The AR system keeps control in the palm of your hand as you continue using your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch to control the music.

"Acoustic Research has a history of design, innovation and technology, and our new AirPlay audio system continues this tradition," stated David Geise, President of Audiovox Accessories Corporation. "AirPlay is a proprietary protocol suite developed by Apple and licensed to partners like us that allows wireless streaming of audio, video, and photos, together with related metadata between devices over a Wi-Fi network.  In addition to adding AR quality sound, we've designed a great looking, high style piece that is simple to set up."

The AirPlay Audio System by Acoustic Research is better than traditional docking and other wireless devices because you can control your music from your Apple iOS device, giving you freedom as a full-function User Interface (UI) remote. It also allows you to get music from multiple Apple devices.  iTunes music libraries are capable of playing music away from the PC and it is simple to use (no pairing, always ready).  You get high quality audio over Wi-Fi, with no use of dongles. You can also link up multiple audio speakers through your house and stream/control your audio files from any room in your home. The ARAP50 will be available in the spring of 2012, with a suggested retail price of $199.99.

"The AirPlay Audio System not only lets you hear your music libraries everywhere and anywhere in your home, it also delivers unsurpassed AR quality sound," said Geise. "This powerful AR audio system can turn any user into the 'house' DJ."

The Acoustic Research brand is marketed by Audiovox Accessories Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp. (NASDAQ: VOXX).
