The all-new MBX-AMP is part of the latest generation of professional grade streamers from Russound, dedicated to high-resolution music performance and installation flexibility. They both bring Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi versatility to the customer’s music and fingertip control for their music pleasure.
When the MBX-AMP is installed in a customer’s home, the music content in their smart phone, tablet, or any of their mobile devices is instantly available through their entertainment system or TV at the tap of a fingertip with the easy-to-use Russound App. These new MBX streamers are the best solution to give consumers ‘wireless sourcing’ from any of their hand held devices, streaming services and NAS drives – as well as localised source options too*.
Built on a fast next-gen processor, the MBX-AMP provides ultra-fast response with tasks like album art based menu browsing and hassle-free synching and grouping among any rooms now a seamless pleasure.More user-friendly than other streamers, the MBX-AMP has front panel controls that can allow customers to control volume, play/pause and also have a slick new feature called “favourites”. This feature enables the MBX-AMP to play not only the customers’ favourites, but also provides immediate access to the last selection that the customer was playing.
MBX-AMP is also ‘Voice Compatible’ with Alexa and Google Home via built-in Chromecast and it provides a host of streaming service support too. The new MBX-AMP now has native support for Tidal, Deezer and ANY audio through Chromecast (built-in), adding to Russound’s existing support for Spotify, TuneIn, vTuner, UPnP devices, and of course Apple AirPlay 2.
The MBX-AMP is not purely just a streamer. With the availability of digital (optical) and analogue (3.5mm stereo) inputs allows the addition of up to two external sources if needed (can be set up to auto-switch to the digital input too) making it ideal for amplifying your locally connected devices – such as TV’s. Furthermore, with the usage of the included IR receiver you can also attenuate your TV’s volume and more (even use a Russound USRC remote too for enhanced features). Just use the included Infrared Sensor and quickly teach the MBX-AMP your remote control’s volume and mute commands. It’s that easy.
What’s New – 5th January 2022
The Russound MBX-Series now supports Apple AirPlay 2 audio streaming! AirPlay 2 offers many exciting new benefits to MBX users.
Multi-brand Synchronisation – Not only can you now use AirPlay to play synchronised audio among any MBX-Series products, but you can also now synchronise audio between your MBX products and ANY OTHER AirPlay 2 compatible brand’s products. Do you have an MBX system throughout the house and an AirPlay 2 Sonos speaker by the pool and an AirPlay 2 soundbar in another room? All of these can now easily join together for synchronised playback and control using AirPlay from any iOS device.
Voice Control with Siri – Use Siri to play and control your favourite music. Your MBX products can be configured in the Apple Home app and Siri can help you use your favourite music apps to play on your AirPlay 2 devices, including Apple Music and more.
Uninterrupted Music – With AirPlay 2, your music will continue to play at your party even if you get a phone call. No more interruptions to the music.
