Review: Eos 100T1RB Wireless Audio System

When we first came across the Wireless Eos 100T1RB system we were not really expecting much because they are... wireless. Oh oh oh, how a little hands on can change perspectives.

Firstly, if you are looking for a main system to go with your high end wine cellar or built in home theater, maybe this isn't for you BUT if you want to fill your home with glorious, decent sound such that no matter where you go, you can experience the majestic eloquence of Jewel, then we have your holy grail right here.

The Eos system is disturbingly easy to set up… there really is no set up… you just plug them all in and turn the volume dial to on. This thing was so easy to get going we almost felt let down. It's hard to describe, but imagine finding out you have been promised in an arranged marriage to someone who speaks another language and so you spend months learning said language only to find out when you finally meet for the first time that they also speak fluent English.

The satellites just plug into a wall socket and they hang on that socket- in mid air (yes, like Cirque Du Soleil) so you don't even have to find a place to put them- that in itself is a miracle.

K- on to the nuts and bolts:
There is a main unit where your ipod goes and there is the option to "connect" up to four more satellite units. These four other units are just plugged into wall sockets and they receive their music via magical transmission- they sync automatically- no need to adjust anything. That's right, you can plug them into any socket, anywhere in the house and they will receive their music without external wiring.

There is a dock and many adapters for any ipod you might have and if you have a different type of portable player (for shame)...

...there is a standard mini stereo jack (Labeled "Aux") that is compatible with any type of player. Actually, our favourite application is to stream music off the internets, so it doesn't matter what you use as your source; CD player, Reel to Reel, Cassette tape or other I-am-so-cool-that-I-remember-that format.

There is a "subwoofer" for both the base unit and the satellites, which fattens up the sound a little.

We were moving this last weekend and "Bombay Beats" was our constant companion throughout the house, it lived in our minds. We became it. We could taste the Pav Bhaji from the carts on the streets of Mumbai. Delicious, but definitely avoid the water.

Use them indoors or by the pool (not water resistant), these are the perfect companions to any event or just personal time. The sound quality is actually quite clear; better than you might expect for being wireless. The real hook is their ease of use... holy cow, they are easy to use

For a great deal, pick a set up here.
