Fort Collins, Colo. — CasaTunes took the wraps off a line of multi-room music servers that are designed to integrate with A/V receivers (AVRs) using Apple AirPlay.
The CasaTunes Music Servers can support up to 24 wired rooms with 10 wireless rooms. They can distribute streaming music to a combination of wireless and wired speakers through AirPlay speakers and devices, multichannel amplifiers and multizone AVRs.
A CasaTunes iOS or Android smartphone and tablet app enables users to control music and programming by room.
The company said it supports AVRs Denon, Harman Kardon, Integra/Onkyo, Marantz, Pioneer, Sony and Yamaha, and it also extends the capabilities of controllers from Audio Authority, Channel Vision, Nuvo, Russound and SpeakerCraft.
Pricing starts at $1,999 for a six-room solution and the servers are now available.
