Russound is set to crank up sales of their DMS-3.1 Digital Media Streamer.The device streams networked-based digital music sources almost anywhere in the house. Up to three simultaneous stereo digital audio streams can be distributed around a house or apartment. A fourth channel is available via the built-in AM/FM stereo tuner.
Compatible file formats include MP3 (CBR, VBR), WAV (8, 16-bit), OGG Vorbis, FLAC [8, 16-bit], AAC and AAC+.
Accordingt to Electronic House, the DMS-3.1 includes rear panel stereo audio output jacks for each of the three streams, and another pair for the tuner. There’s also a Source ID Switch, so you (or your installer) can easily identify which stream is which. Other features include three USB ports, an AM/FM tuner with RDS feedback, and FM coax and loop antenna connections.
Connect the DMS-3.1 to your Ethernet connection, and to one of the Russound C-Series controllers. The streamer can also snag audio from any LAN-connected DLNA devices throughout the house.
Russound says that the DMS-3.1 will start shipping in May. Russound products are distributed in Australia by Ness.
