CEDIA - Autonomic Introduces New Generation of Whole-House Entertainment Products Featuring eAudioCast™ Proprietary Audio-over-Ethernet Technology

Integrators benefit from enhanced performance and installation flexibility with the first in a series of highly advanced new product introductions from Autonomic

Armonk, NY. August 23, 2016 - Autonomic, makers of the finest whole-house music systems, has announced the introduction of the MMS-1e whole-house music player and the M-120e 4-zone amplifier, each featuring proprietary eAudioCast audio-over-Ethernet technology. This means that that the music player and amplifier can be connected using a single Cat5e cable at high resolution bitrates, no traditional audio wiring required.

Integrators will appreciate the flexibility to decentralize the placement of eSeries amplification, making it dramatically less difficult to bring high-resolution digital audio streaming into the most challenging zones. Most critically, the MMS-1e and M-120e each reside in a new compact form factor, enabling integrators to easily locate these components along with source devices anywhere in the home or in a traditional structured wiring enclosure.

The completely solid state MMS-1e music player represents a new entry level product for Autonomic that will broaden the opportunities for integrators to deliver Autonomic music solutions, particularly to those clients focused on enjoying streaming content throughout the home. The MMS-1e can be leveraged as a low cost single stream music player utilized as a standalone solution within a control system environment, or can be paired with an Autonomic eSeries amplifier, where its capacity doubles to provide two independent network streams of content. That means that the MMS-1e paired with the M-120e amplifier will deliver a two-stream/four-zone premium entertainment package at an affordable price point. And this solution is expandable via Ethernet to as many as 96 zones, enabling the user to grow their music system as their needs change while enjoying the same intuitive user interface they become accustomed to with the basic package.

"Our eSeries line of music streamers and amplifiers are designed to afford additional installation flexibility by leveraging a home's existing Ethernet network without sacrificing the pristine high- resolution sound that Mirage Music Players are known for," explained Autonomic CEO Michael de Nigris. "Additionally, the lower price point and traditional audio connectors on the MMS-1e make it equally well suited for use as a lower cost, single stream device in traditional control system/whole-house entertainment installations, de Nigris added."

The economical single stream MMS-1e retails at $995 and the two-stream/four-zone package starts at $1995 MSRP. Anticipated ship date is September, 2016.

High Resolution Output
The MMS-1e supports high-resolution audio, and the Japan Audio Society has certified the MMS-1e as a hi-resolution player with built in 24/192 DACs.

Flexible Output Options
The MMS-1e will support one analog output through it's internal 192 kHz /24 bit DAC, plus mirrored high-resolution PCM digital outputs with both Coax and HDMI ports. The MMS-1e will support one stream mirrored to Analog, PCM, and HDMI outputs, and two streams when using the eAudioCast technology.

All Solid State
The MMS-1e is completely solid state. Autonomic has eliminated all moving parts by leveraging solid state storage and re-engineered passive cooling systems, which translates to years of trouble free and silent performance, lower power consumption and faster response times.

Wi-Fi support
The MMS-1e supports both wired and bi-directional Wi-Fi connections for convenient placement.

Integrates into all popular control systems
The Autonomic MMS-1e and M-120e can be used as a standalone entertainment solution or integrated into any of the popular home automation platforms as part of a larger smart home package.

M-120e amplifier
The Autonomic M-120e is a 4-zone amplifier delivering 30-watts per zone. There is an analog RCA-style input for connection of a local audio device and a coax output for digital redistribution of audio inputs. An Infrared (IR) output enables connection of a remote keypad such as the Autonomic KP-6.
