Pioneer unveils AirPlay Music Tap system

The Japanese AV giant hopes to break the shackles of your iTunes library

Pioneer has joined the ever-growing AirPlay speaker party by announcing the X-SMC3-S music system. Able to connect to a network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, the system will serve up your entire iTunes music library on a 2.5in colour LCD display with the ability to share playlists on the company’s other Music Tap devices.

vTuner internet radio should provide a nice respite from your questionable audio collection and the cleverly hidden iPod dock, USB port and standard AUX input mean that other devices can join in on the fun.

The X-SMC4-K Elite model offers a slightly darker look along with Bluetooth for more connectivity options. Pricing and availability details for both offerings are expected soon.
