Creative introduce Sound Blaster for iTunes with wireless T20W

As the dust over the Zii settles, Creative went on to release its latest Sound Blaster product, the Sound Blaster for iTunes. The Sound Blaster for iTunes looks identical to the X-Fi Go!, allows you to wirelessly connect your PC or Mac to speakers when you listen to your iTunes or MP3 music. To receive the music, you have to purchase a Creative Wireless Receiver to connect it to your speakers or purchase the new GigaWorks T20W (W stands for Wireless). I have always thought that Speakers that are in-built with wireless receiver are a good idea and the T20W is Creative's first such speakers and i'm sure it will not be the last.

The Sound Blaster for iTunes will retail at US$99.99 while the GigaWorks T20W Series II speaker system is priced at US$129.99. Both will be available at the end of this month.
