Russound’s MBX-PRE and MCX-AMP Streaming Audio Solutions

The new compact streaming audio models, on display at the Capitol booth at CEDIA, offer numerous streaming options and flexibility.

Capitol will feature two new Russound products in its CEDIA Expo 2018 booth 4715. Originally previewed at the 2017 CEDIA Expo, the MBX-AMP and MBX-PRE are single-box solutions that are easy to install and configure as a streaming audio system for residential installations, while access to SiriusXM for Business makes it a reliable solution in light commercial projects. Russound designed the MBX-AMP to be a decentralized, amplified streaming solution for installers who want to offer the most up-to-date streaming media options to their clients. The MBX-PRE is similar to the MBX-AMP, minus the amplifier section.

The MBX-AMP is a 50 WPC zone amplifier is a unique solution designed to allow sharing of any multiroom audio speakers with a local TV. Its WiFi and wired Ethernet connections allow for quick, reliable installation, and the addition of Tidal and Deezer to Russound’s current streaming assortment makes a compelling combination of services.

The companion MBX-PRE is a preamplifier version of MBX-AMP, designed to work with any brand of amplifier or receiver. Both models feature built-in support for high resolution audio, Bluetooth, Chromecast on board, Apple AirPlay, and voice control via Amazon Alexa, and includes TIDAL, Deezer, and more.

Both the MBX-PRE and MBX-AMP will ship in late Q4.
