CEDIA - Autonomic Introduces the MMS-1e Music Streamer Featuring eAudioCast™ Proprietary Audio-over-Ethernet Technology
High-performance in a compact chassis along with Wi-Fi connectivity make the MMS-1e the ultimate audio solution, delivering all popular streaming services, system design and installation flexibility, high-resolution playback and affordability to whole-house entertainment
Armonk, NY. September 6, 2016 - Autonomic, makers of the finest whole-house music systems, has announced the introduction of the MMS-1e whole-house music streamer featuring proprietary eAudioCast audio-over-Ethernet technology. The eAudioCast technology will make it dramatically less difficult to bring high-resolution digital audio along with streaming content into even the most challenging to reach zones in any project. The MMS-1e also resides in a new compact form factor, enabling integrators to easily locate the music streamer along with source devices anywhere in the home or in a traditional structured wiring enclosure.
The completely solid state MMS-1e music streamer represents a new entry level product for Autonomic that will broaden the opportunities for integrators to deliver premium entertainment solutions, particularly to those clients focused on enjoying streaming content throughout the home. The Autonomic eSeries MMS-1e is a single or dual stream whole-house music player featuring advanced eAudioCast audio-over-Ethernet technology that transforms the single stream offered on the MMS-1e into two network streams when paired with any Autonomic eSeries amplifier. For applications requiring more than two simultaneous music streams, integrators can easily add additional MMS-1e streamers, each of which will make two additional eAudioCast programs available.
The MMS-1e supports all popular streaming services, high-resolution audio up to 192 kHz /24 bit and is compatible with the most popular smart home platforms. The MMS-1e supports one analog output through its onboard 192 kHz /24 bit DAC, plus mirrored high-resolution PCM digital outputs in both Coax, HDMI and USB to DAC formats. The MMS-1e is completely solid state, delivering lower power consumption and snappier, more fluid responsiveness.
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 in full-featured yet affordable whole-house entertainment systems up to 96 zones. This inherent flexibility enables the user to grow their music system as their needs change while enjoying the same intuitive user interface they have become accustomed to with the basic package.
"The MMS-1e music streamer has been engineered to deliver the critical features and performance consumers are looking for combined with unprecedented installation flexibility—all at the lowest price point ever offered by Autonomic," explained CEO Michael de Nigris. "The MMS-1e is equally at home as the foundation of an affordable standalone Mirage Audio System or as part of a larger smart home solution," de Nigris added."
The MMS-1e will become available at the end of September, 2016 with an MSRP of $995.
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 its 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.
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 can be used as a standalone entertainment solution (when packaged with an eSeries amplifier) or integrated into any of the popular home automation platforms as part of a larger smart home package.
