CasaTunes musicBox 6 Delivers Design Tool for Do-It-Yourself Customers

Removes Guesswork in Setting Up a Complete Music System Quickly and Easily

FT. COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CasaTunes®, the leader in streaming multi-room music solutions, today reveals its musicBox 6 design tool so the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) customer can easily plan and implement a fully customized house music system. The Configurator Tool, provides customers with a complete set of documentation, simplifying the installation, maintenance and troubleshooting of the musicBox 6 based whole house audio system. As a cloud based service, the Configurator Tool allows customers to create, save and view the project at any time.


"We wanted an easy way for the DIYer to evaluate and configure how to set up their music in their home," said Steve Guerra, VP Business Development at CasaTunes. "To make sure they have all the necessary technology pieces to do what they planned and a step-by-step installation guide, we developed the Configurator Tool."

The process takes less than five minutes and to start, select "Define your rooms." These are the rooms throughout the house where music will play. Simply name them, like kitchen, patio or office. As each new room is added, the configuration tool automatically displays the appropriate musicBox 6 server along with any components. The dynamic detailed report includes a quote and a link to order the system based on the project's specifications.

Once their musicBox 6 system arrives, DIY customers can follow simple step-by-step instructions to wire their musicBox 6 system. The step-by-step instructions, which are generated by the Configurator Tool, are designed to eliminate any wiring related setup issues. Once all the musicBox 6 connections have been completed, the customer is prompted to power up their equipment, and press the "Configure my musicBox" button to upload their project configuration to their musicBox 6. Once the musicBox 6 is set up, the customer simply downloads the latest native CasaTunes Apps for Android and iOS to control the musicBox 6, and enjoy.

The Configurator Tool makes it extremely easy for DIY customers to customize how speakers in a room are powered. Room speakers are configured in the normal Stereo mode. Under Advanced Options, room speakers can be configured in Bridged mode which provides up to four times the power to the speaker, or powered by an existing AV Receiver, ideal for those homes that have one or more existing AV Receivers installed such as home theater equipment. Best of all, the Configurator Tool automatically configures the musicBox for the DIY customer, such that each room is controlled the same, regardless of how the room speakers are powered.

Each musicBox 6 includes a four stream CasaTunes music server, a six-room power amplifier, six keypads and an IR remote. Each stream is like a stand-alone music player, providing each family member a dedicated player. The musicBox 6 is available for 6, 12, and 18 rooms.

The musicBox 6 is available direct to consumers and starts at $1,899. Details and how to order the musicBox 6 can be found on the website http://www.musicbox6.com.
