CasaTunes has launched a line of Multi-Room Music Servers with integration of popular multi-zone AV Receivers. The CasaTunes Music Servers start at 3 wired rooms and 5 wireless rooms and support up to 24 wired rooms with 10 wireless rooms.
“Our new CasaTunes Music Systems scale, both in terms of performance and cost, matching the needs of smaller homes as well as larger homes,” said David Krinker, CEO of CasaTunes. “Our CasaTunes systems provide installers great flexibility, allowing them to install a wired-only solution, a wireless-only solution, or a hybrid wired and wireless solution. The Multi-Zone AV Receiver integration adds even more flexibility, allowing homeowners to leverage their current technology to power CasaTunes music servers throughout the house.”
CasaTunes Music Systems distribute streaming music to a combination of wireless and wired speakers through Airplay speakers and devices, multi-channel amplifiers and multi-zone AV Receivers. Homeowners can listen to a different playlist in each room and all speakers are continuously synchronized without any echoes. To control music and audio programming by room, homeowners use the CasaTunes Smartphone (iPhone or Android) and tablet (iPad or Android) Apps, a web browser or keypads.
The multi-zone AV Receivers can power CasaTunes in one or more rooms, without needing to purchase a separate multi-channel amplifier. CasaTunes supports AV Receivers from Denon, Harman Kardon, Integra/Onkyo, Marantz, Pioneer, Sony and Yamaha. Once configured, listening to music in a room that is powered by a multi-zone AV Receiver is completely transparent to the homeowner—the room can be controlled just as if it were any other room in the home. CasaTunes also extend the capabilities of several third party controllers, including Audio Authority, Channel Vision, Nuvo, Russound and SpeakerCraft, by adding wireless speakers and multi-zone AV Receiver support to these systems.
CasaTunes Multi-Room Music Servers with Multi-Zone AV Receiver support is available immediately. The CasaTunes CT-3 multi-room music system and 3 AirPlay speakers can be purchased for $1,999 to provide a complete six-room solution.
