NuVo Introduces High Power Three-Zone Player for Its Multiroom IP-Based Music System

Adding Options For Wireless Home Audio

Adding to custom installers' options for configuring wireless multiroom music systems, NuVo Technologies has introduced a new high-power, rack-mounted three-zone audio player for the IP-based NuVo Wireless Audio System. The new P3500 Player will play up to three different streaming sources independently in three zones and provide up to 200 watts of power per zone. When connected to the NuVo G100 WiFi Gateway, the P3500 can be used alone or in a system with NuVo's single-zone wireless players or existing three-zone player, the NuVo P3100.. The NuVo Wireless Audio System lets listeners select and play a wide variety of streaming and networked music sources using any Apple or Android device as the control.


"The new player makes it easier for installers to satisfy a wider variety of needs and still give their customers all the convenience and flexibility of a wireless system," said Rick Kukulies, CTO. "We designed our system to handle the highest resolution audio sources of any multi-zone WiFi-based system. The amplifiers in the P3500 will let customers show off just how good this system sounds - at any volume level."

The NuVo Wireless Audio System can operate as a standalone multi-room system with up to 16 separate zones, or installers can easily configure it to operate as part of larger home control or home automation system made by other companies. Both NuVo and third-party manufacturers provide software drivers for easy system integration.

Orders from NuVo's dealers are now being accepted, with product shipment beginning December 16 2013.
