Russound is adding new features to a trio of planned multiroom-audio controllers to simplify setup and reduce unauthorized internet sales.

Also for authorized installers, the company plans June/July shipments of its first Android-based in-wall touchscreen controller, which offers multiple advantages over an existing touchscreen controller. The company also plans its first three TV-audio amplifiers, which can be mounted on the back of a TV or mounted flush in a wall behind a TV.
To speed up configuration of three previously announced multizone-audio controllers, the company is adding the ability to configure the components via smartphone or tablet web browser rather than from a software suite running on a laptop. Setup by browser will require less technician training and deliver faster configuration, said Russound CEO Charlie Porritt.
