AVD Australia is pleased to announce that the Philips Pronto Solution for Sonos now includes support for Rhapsody, the independent music service provider.


The solution supports the TSU9400, TSU9600 and through to the large 6.4" TSU9800 control panels. The team at AVD Australia has gone to great lengths to maintain the look and the feel of the Sonos interface, so that users don't have to deal with a different graphical interface when using a Philips Pronto control system.

Rhapsody features supported include:

* QWERTY touch screen keyboard for search functions on TSU 9600/9800
* Searching Rhapsody by artists, Albums, Composers and tracks
* Using the Rhapsody Music Guide to browse Charts, Genres and New Releases
* Browsing Rhapsody Channels

The AVD Australia team is further working on expanding the solution to offer more functionality when browsing the local music library. These additional local music library functions are due to be released towards the end of 2009. By early next year it's anticipated that the team will release an update to select the internet radio stations and the ability to control the Sonos line input source.

The Philips Pronto Solution is available in the following configurations:

1 Pronto + 1 Sonos Zone

4 Pronto's + 4 Sonos Zones

8 Pronto's + 8 Sonos Zones

All solutions require a Philips Pronto TSU 9400, 9600 or 9800 and a fully operational Sonos System in the appropriate configuration. All that's needed then is to load the Pronto module under the instructions provided and connect the AVD processor to the network.

For those who have already purchased the Philips Pronto Solution, the firmware upgrade is free by emailing solutions@avd.com.au with your unit's serial number.

The Philips Pronto Solutions are available from www.avd.com.au

The manual is also available and free to download from www.avd.com.au
