Spotify is now fully integrated into Russound’s streaming model. The service is available to users of the XStream X5 Controller/Streamer, the DMS-3.1 Digital Media Streamer, and the upcoming MCA-88X Streaming Multizone Controller/Amplifier.
“Streaming is more than just the future of audio – it’s the present, and Spotify is the most popular streaming service in the business,” said Charlie Porritt, Russound’s CEO. “With Spotify on board, our customers are able to give their clients their number one choice for audio, and our MyRussound app makes accessing and using the service as easy as operating a light switch.”
Spotify Connect is featured on two of Russound’s leading models XStream X5 and the DMS-3.1. The MCA-88X Streaming Multizone Controller Digital Amplifier will include it when the model ships in the second quarter of this year. The Russound XStream X5 is a room-by-room distributed audio system with integrated controller. It is a fully Wi-Fi certified device that can wirelessly synchronize audio across all X5-powered rooms. It’s designed to be subtle, unobtrusive and blend easy into any décor.
The DMS-3.1 Digital Media Streamer provides network-based digital music to a multiroom system. As an Apple Certified AirPlay accessory, audio content can be sent to the DMS-3.1 from any iOS device.
Russound’s MCA-88X Streaming Multizone Controller Digital Amplifier represents a blending of the company’s popular MCA-Series products and Russound’s XStream technology that streams content from the cloud, home network, tablets and phones—all from a single component.
The updated version of the MyRussound App now includes full Spotify control. MyRussound allows end-users to control their Russound systems with ease, from the comfort of a smartphone or tablet. MyRussound is available free of charge to all Russound customers in the iTunes and Google Play stores.
