Country, 5 December 2014 – D-Link, one of the world’s biggest suppliers of home networking products introduces a new wireless product – The DCH-M225 Wi-Fi Audio Extender. The gadget is able to stream music to anywhere within an extended wireless network. The multi-tasking device also serves as a portable plug-in repeater that extends an existing wireless network. Tiny yet powerful, it supports Wireless N speeds of up to 300 Mbps in a device that ﬁts in the palm of your hand.
Mr Jonathan Quek, Marketing Director for D-Link International said, “Expanding one’s audio capabilities has been made so much easier with the DCH-M225 which has support for both DLNA and AirPlay. Simply connect to a speaker or home stereo via a 3.5mm audio jack, then stream music from your mobile device by being connected on the same Wi-Fi network. Using Wi-Fi to receive data, it also gives clearer sound quality and a better range over conventional Bluetooth audio extenders.”
Say Goodbye to Wi-Fi Dead Zones
With a repeater function, the audio extender also helps to enlarge the connectivity zone wherever it’s plugged in, even when a quiet environment is preferred. Supporting Wireless N with backwards compatibility for G and B standards, the repeater offers speeds of up to 300Mbps.
Enabled with Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) Quality of Service protocol, the gadget ensures no issues with bandwidth when streaming audio and multi-tasking with other connectivity activities such as surfing the Internet, checking email or online gaming.

- Plugging in the DCH-M225 into a power outlet, connecting it wirelessly with a computer or mobile device, and following the steps on the built-in Setup Wizard for configuration
