Snap One has introduced the Episode WAKE Amp, an in-wall amplifier that connects to Bluetooth audio devices, including voice assistants, to deliver an easy-to-use music solution for new or existing multi-room or single-room audio systems.
Episode’s WAKE Amp connects a smart voice assistant or other Bluetooth audio device to speakers throughout the property. Featuring commercial-grade Bluetooth connectivity with a 100-foot range, WAKE Amp is a small, Alexa-optimized in-wall amplifier with three hard buttons for direct control of music. It delivers up to 25 watts of power to four speakers at 4 ohms and has an LED meter below the buttons to show volume level.
Episode designed the WAKE Amp to be powered by existing speaker wire home runs with a power supply that attaches at the existing amplifier location, eliminating the need for new wire runs. The WAKE Amp is equally well-suited to new construction projects that require simple, intuitive audio solutions —run speaker wires from the power supply location to the WAKE Amp, then from WAKE Amp to the speakers.
While the WAKE Amp requires virtually no configuration or setup, Episode has designed a WAKE mobile app for iOS and Android devices. It offers instant control of volume, LED brightness, ability to set the hard buttons to control either volume or playback, add high-pass filters, adjust bass and treble tone, and apply a name to the room for easy identification in the app. Additionally, users can easily add new Bluetooth devices with a single button press on the wall keypad.
The Episode WAKE Amp is available immediately online and through Snap One Partner Stores.
