MicroLink dLAN Audio.


The Microlink dLAN Audio. Now here’s clever. Basically using PowerLine technology to stream music around the home using your electrical sockets and wiring system. MP3 playback in 192kbps stereo quality from your power plug. Freaky. Around £91.00 ($161.00).

 The easiest music streaming solution into any room or onto any floor in the house, simply by connecting a MicroLink dLAN Ethernet adapter to a PC (MP3 storage) and the MicroLink dLAN Audio adapter to a HiFi – stream your stored MP3s or Internet radio to wherever you want to listen!…You can even connect the MicroLink dLAN Audio adapter to a set of active speakers in any other room – there are lots of flexible combinations available at every electrical power socket.


  • Just what I was looking for! I’m currently renovating a period house and was considering using Cat5. Hopefully this is one thing I can tick off the list :o)

  • Hmmm…sounds like a good solution for you then. As long as it works over distances greater than 5 feet of course. :-)

  • If it is only an audio device, why does it have video connectors?

  • Those aren’t video connectors, they’re SPIDF (digital audio). But SPIDF connectors should be orange; yellow as you correctly misinterpretted generally indicates video.

  • So you already have a LAN in your houes without adding ethernet cables? Why not juse use it for data in general?

  • wow.. that’s cool! no chance in hell it’d work over here in the states tho.. you’d need a transformer-type dealie so the voltage would be correct and that would crank the transmission speeds down to .. zilch

  • I think it’s because these units come with audio connectors rather than vanilla Ethernet.
