Griffin Twenty makes any speaker AirPlay ready (pictures)

Griffin has launched a new device at CES in Las Vegas that will allow you to turn any speakers into AirPlay ready ones, saving you the chore of having to upgrade if you want to stream your music around your house.

The new gadget, called the Griffin Twenty, uses an Airport Express to capture the AirPlay stream and decode it, then sends the lossless, amplified sound through any speakers connected to it.

The Twenty comes equipped with a power connection and mount for Airport Express and features a 2.1 channel sound system with 20W output per channel as well as offering users the chance to plug in a powered subwoofer with an automatic active crossover at 80Hz.

Users will be able to connect to the Airport Express' S/PIDF optical output with the included fiber optic cable, or via the spring-loaded right and left channel connectors. There is also a RCA subwoofer connector.

Griffin has yet to set a price for the new gadget, however expects in to be available in the UK shortly.
