"CasaTunes delivers high quality audio sound and cutting edge features that make it easy for dealers to install in most all of their audio projects."

As a multi-mode music server, all servers can be configured to operate in the following modes:
• System Mode: The CasaTunes server connects to any amplifier, and with the addition of speakers and optional keypads, provides a complete multi-room audio system.
• System Controller Mode: CasaTunes provides streams of music and seamlessly controls many popular third-party audio distribution systems.
• Multi-Stream Player Mode: CasaTunes provides full integration with popular home automation systems.

Additionally, when used in System or System Controller Modes, it can be controlled with the CasaTunes iOS and Android apps.

All music servers include all the features customers appreciate about CasaTunes including CasaTunes QuickSync, CasaTunes Air, Audiophile and Hi-Fidelity CD quality music and extensive home automation control system integration. CasaTunes QuickSync quickly discovers, indexes and plays networked music residing on any PC, Mac or storage device.
