SpeakerCraft from Core Brands today announced a major update to its multi-room audio software that adds streaming audio services, a new streamlined user interface, and a dynamic zone grouping feature. The introduction was made at ISE 2017 in Amsterdam.
The software’s new built-in streaming services include Spotify, TuneIn, Pandora and other popular Internet radio services. These new services unlock a seventh source in the MRA-664 chassis that drives the multi-room ecosystem’s six zones of audio, expandable to 12 with a second chassis. Additionally, the dynamic zone grouping feature allows family members to instantly group media zones on-the-fly, perfect for party mode or when the entertainment moves from room to room.
Launched in 2015 as a six-source, six-zone system, SpeakerCraft’s MRA664 is anchored by the easy-to-install ecosystem that includes two touch panels and a wireless remote. The installation wizard enables configuring of the entire system – now seven sources and six zones – from a tablet or laptop. The SpeakerCraft app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play to enable control from mobile devices.
