NextGenTV‘s First to the Future home series will feature CasaTunes multi-room audio systems. In each episode, Host Ty Pennington details the latest in next generation home building.
The CasaTunes CT-8 will be installed and features the ability to have eight wired zones and 10 Airplay zones, with up to eight different streams of music. CasaTunes is controlled using native CasaTunes Apps for iOS, Android, and Blackberry smart phones and tablets, as well as via keypads.
CasaTunes powers its products using CasaTunes Air, a multiroom switch for Apple AirPlay that combines wired and wireless into one multi room audio solution. This is what enables access to an unlimited number of music apps available on smart phones today such as iTunes Radio, iHeartRadio, NPR Music, Rhapsody, Rdio, Songza, and more. Users can also incorporate radio stations from around the world and premium options, like Grooveshark, last.fm, MOG, SiriusXM, Slacker, Spotify, and Pandora.
Listening to music is as simple as choosing the room and then browsing or searching songs by album, by app, artist, genre, or playlist. Schedules can even be created for falling asleep or waking up to a favorite playlist.
