Logitech jumps into streaming with the $400 UE Air Speaker, its first Apple AirPlay speaker

Logitech's UE Air Speaker enters a market that is rapidly being flooded with similar devices.

Logitech is entering the AirPlay streaming market with the Logitech UE Air Speaker, its first speaker to support Apple's streaming protocol.

Via AirPlay, users can stream their iTunes libraries to supported devices over a WiFi connection, eliminating the need for wired connections. Quite a few speaker docks have featured support for the functionality in recent months, so there's clearly no dearth of options.

The UE Air Speaker features a pair of tweeters and woofers, which Logitech says allows the device to "high-quality audio with a big sound stage".

Available in April, the Logitech UE Air Speaker will sell for $399.
