Multi-room audio over electrical lines in your home

The Pioneer MT-01 allows you stream audio to different rooms in your house using just electrical cables to transmit the signal.  There are all kinds of interesting features, but here’s a short list:

  • Large speakers (25W) have remote control sensors that allow system control from anywhere they are placed
  • Small speakers (5W) have motion sensors that start and stop based on motion
  • 5 inputs — 2 USB, 2 analog, 1 “front audio input”
  • Multi-room playback from 2 distinct sources

Unfortunately the system currently only seems to be available on the Pioneer UK site and there is no mention of pricing.

I have to wonder how many simultaneous electrical line devices can run over the same lines without interfering with each other.
