Autonomic has announced the introduction of the MMS-1e whole-house music streamer featuring eAudioCast audio-over-Ethernet technology. The MMS-1e also resides in a new compact form factor, enabling integrators to easily locate the music streamer along with source devices anywhere in the home or in a traditional structured wiring enclosure.
The completely solid state MMS-1e music streamer represents a new entry level product for Autonomic that will broaden the opportunities for integrators to deliver premium entertainment solutions, particularly to those clients focused on enjoying streaming content throughout the home. The Autonomic eSeries MMS-1e is a single or dual stream whole-house music player featuring advanced eAudioCast audio-over-Ethernet technology that transforms the single stream offered on the MMS-1e into two network streams when paired with any Autonomic eSeries amplifier. For applications requiring more than two simultaneous music streams, integrators can easily add additional MMS-1e streamers, each of which will make two additional eAudioCast programs available.
The MMS-1e supports all popular streaming services, high-resolution audio up to 192 kHz /24 bit and is compatible with the most popular smart home platforms. The MMS-1e supports one analog output through its onboard 192 kHz /24 bit DAC, plus mirrored high-resolution PCM digital outputs in both Coax, HDMI and USB to DAC formats. The MMS-1e is completely solid state, delivering lower power consumption and snappier, more fluid responsiveness.
The MMS-1e can be leveraged as a low cost single stream music player utilized as a standalone solution within a control system environment, or can be paired with an Autonomic eSeries amplifier, where its capacity doubles to provide two independent network streams of content in full-featured yet affordable whole-house entertainment systems up to 96 zones. This inherent flexibility enables the user to grow their music system as their needs change while enjoying the same intuitive user interface they have become accustomed to with the basic package. It will list for $995.
