OSD Audio has announced the NERO VOX, a 40-watt in-wall amplifier designed to enhance the streaming audio experience from the Echo Dot Gen 3/4 Bluetooth smart speaker. An architecturally discreet in-wall amplifier, the NERO VOX installs flush mount into drywall and includes a docking station that securely holds the Echo Dot. When connected to in-ceiling, in-wall or bookshelf speakers, users can enjoy voice-control or manual access to their music libraries, Amazon Music and services like Spotify, iHeartRadio, Pandora and TuneIn with vastly improved sound quality.
A replacement for in-wall volume controls with existing wiring, the NERO VOX turns the Echo Dot 3/4 into an in-wall volume control keypad for voice-controlled audio in a single room or multiple rooms. The Echo Dot fits securely inside the docking station’s enclosure, and the amp is hidden with a paintable trim cover that blends into any decor. The NERO VOX is 4- and 8-ohm switchable so users can connect a single 4-ohm or 8-ohm speaker pair or connect two pairs of 8-ohm speakers. The power wall plate fits a standard J box and is extendable up to 300 feet for installation flexibility, and the NERO VOX includes dual RCA inputs to add a subwoofer. OSD Audio’s NERO VOX also consists of a 3.5-mm aux input for voice-activated control of a TV. Users can purchase a single unit or buy multiple NERO VOX in-wall amplifiers to create a whole-house audio system with voice or manual access.
