The Rocki device, as an article from Endgadget (via Kickstarter) states, is said to be able to turn any audio system into a Wi-Fi enabled sound system that enables you to stream music from any device having a wireless streaming principle. The idea’s a pretty straightforward one: a module that plugs into the back of an existing sound system via audio jack or RCA, essentially turning it into a wireless speaker system.

The little hexagonal Play device streams music over your home network via 802.11b/g/n, which has some notable fidelity and range advantages over Bluetooth. Assuming you’ve already got some speakers lying around, it’s also a fair bit cheaper than investing in a new Bluetooth or WiFi versions.

  • WiFi 802.11b/g/n (AP / Hotspot mode supported)
  • Music Formats Supported : MP3, FLAC, WAV, AIFF
  • Music Streaming Services Supported : TBC pending licensing request with the respective music streaming services

  • Included : 3.5mm to 3.5mm Audio Cable, 3.5mm to RCA Audio Cable, USB Charging Cable, USB Charger
  • Battery : 900mAH
  • Dimensions: 92 x 54 x 17mm / 48g

An android app is reportedly in the works for the Rocki, letting you stream your music to multiple devices, having the iOS and HTML5 taken into consideration as well. The device is pledged at $45 / €33 / £28 and buyers can get one of the first Rocki exclusive beta devices (limited availability), with beta app and firmware (app and firmware upgrades over the air). But if you want to go cheaper, you can also get it at a pledged price of $18 / €13 / £11 with a free t-shirt.
