The Wi-Fi Bookshelf Music System is being touted as the "world's first" Internet radio system have both dual bookshelf speakers and 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity. Said speakers host 3.5-inch full range drivers, 1-inch tweeters, and a 16-watt RMS Class D digital amplifier.

As for the Internet radio function, you get your basic choice between thousands of stations (over 17,000) as well as 20,000 plus on-demand programs and over 35,000 podcasts. Owners can get access to familiar services such as Pandora, Sirius XM, WeatherBug and Rhapsody.

Users can stream music wirelessly from Windows and Mac computers, and they can also playback music from other audio sources via RCA inputs and USB. All of this has to be managed using that standard four-line user interface, which for some reason can't be updated to something more aesthetically pleasing or at least easy to use.

Priced at $249.99, the Wi-Fi Bookshelf Music System is available now.
