Savant has expanded its entertainment offerings for custom integrators with new options for IP Music Servers and in-wall invisible speakers. The new Savant IP Audio Music Server works with Savant’s family of IP Audio products to create a whole-house entertainment system in any zone simply by accessing the network. The IP Audio Music Server features Savant Music 2.0, an music server experience based on software that includes improved speed, easier navigation, preset recall, song queues and more. Savant Music 2.0 also features redesigned app control screens. Also an equalizer screen makes it easier to fine-tune the sound on supported devices. Users will also access to their favorite streaming services such as Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, Tidal and more, as well PLEX support for locally stored music.
Designed to be completely hidden behind the wall using a soundboard, the Artison Sound Surface speakers use resonances to generate soundwaves originating from multiple locations on the board, generating a broad frequency range with very small fluctuations in amplitude. Artison Sound Surface speakers are designed to be sheet rock mudded into the wall, allowing them to be textured for a seamless final install and invisible audio. The fully closed back design offers isolation from other spaces and the single-piece body is designed for simple installation into both pre-construction and retrofit options. Artison Sound Surface speakers can be installed outdoors under material like stucco or beneath decorative wallpaper. Available in 40- or 80-watt versions.
