Seems to build up its own wireless network, when watches some YouTube videos.

Sorry, yes, that's what I meant: wireless speakers, not WiFi speakers. Usually connected through USB, acting as a sound card. I assume in this case the controller uses that network, too?

Plenty of these on the market.

This is what existed at Logitech when they bought SlimDevices.
IIRC, it was using Bluetooth, not WiFi.

Exactly. Speculation at the time was that they were either (a) buying SlimDevices to kill off/co-opt competition for this device, which is essentially a long (virtual) cable from the soundcard, or (b) buying SlimDevices to gain products superior to what they had, and then kill "Wireless DJ".

I don't see the product listed anywhere if you follow any of the "Audio products" links from the main page, even on the UK site that you've linked. So it may be well and truly dead, but someone forgot to take the page down. Or it could still exist, but they've obliterated all the entry points where someone would normally find out about the product. With Logitech anything is possible, esp on their web site....
