Belkin seems to be engaged on a brand new “Belkin Soundform Join” adapter that may hook up with a regular speaker so as to add AirPlay 2 capabilities.
The adapter was present in FCC filings by Janko Roettgers (through 9to5Mac), and it seems like it is going to be powered by a USB-C cable and can function a 3.5mm mini jack port for audio output and Optical Digital Audio.
The performance could also be much like the AirPort Categorical, which is not obtainable. The AirPort Categorical enabled AirPlay performance on a regular speaker via the three.5mm jack.
AirPlay 2 is a multi-room audio function that allows you to stream music to multiple AirPlay 2 enabled speaker. AirPlay 2 is obtainable on the HomePod, HomePod mini, Apple TV, Sonos audio system, and different third-party speaker choices.
There isn’t any phrase on when the Belkin Soundform Join shall be launched, however it could possibly be priced at round 100 euros or $120.
