If you can do something from your mobile phone, you'll probably rule out all other methods. These new Wi-Fi Music Flow Speakers cater to this attitude, eliminating the wireless remote control in favor of your own trusty handset.
There are a few phone apps on the market that enable you to control your stereo, but this fresh concept by LG is more inclusive than most. A sneak preview was presented at CES 2015. You don't actually require a smartphone in order to influence the audio in the room; rather, you can simply give the system instructions by means of text message. Type and send commands such as "skip," or "pause" to navigate tracks, or deliver an order to "play party music" to launch an upbeat playlist. What's more, the Wi-Fi Music Flow Speakers can pick up signals from devices within a foot's radius, and begin amplifying instantly.
