CasaTunes Music Servers
CasaTunes Music Servers provide up to 16 streams of pre-amplified, line level, high definition audio. These streams are typically fed to a matrix amplifier, which amplifies and distributes the music streams throughout the home.
Each stream acts as an independent, stand alone music player. You can listen to disc music, networked music, Internet radio and music, SONOS music, as well as stream music from iOS devices using Apple AirPlay.
CasaTunes Music Servers can be used in one of three ways, (i) stand alone, as a streamer integrated with a home automation system, (ii) in combination with a CasaTunes matrix amplifier, or (iii) in combination with a 3rd party matrix amplifier.
To create a complete CasaTunes whole house audio system, select a CasaTunes music server, add one or more CasaTunes matrix amplifiers, such as the CT-6X6MA or CT-12X8MA, and connect the room speakers.
CasaTunes Music Servers (with built-in Software Matrix Switch)
The following CasaTunes Music Servers include a built-in software matrix switch, and are designed to connect to one or more multi-channel amplifiers, such as the CasaTunes CT-1240AMP amplifier. These music servers are ideal when you require a large number of streams.
NOTE: The software matrix switch has an inherent latency of about 100-150ms and therefore is not recommended for distributing audio from a TV or video source. When distributing audio from a TV or video source, we recommend you use a CasaTunes (hardware based) matrix amplifier, such as the CT-6X6MA or CT-12X8MA.
