The Auris Skye is a device that let’s you update any speaker dock to work with any of your devices over WiFi using AirPlay and DLNA.  Since this system uses WiFi and not Bluetooth, you can roam freely throughout your home without worrying about going out of range.  This is great for the early adopters that bought in to the speaker dock eco-system with their 30 pin connector Apple devices years ago. The Skye is a great addition to your home media system. (Buy $69)
