Got a favourite pair of speakers you’d love to use for streaming? The CONNECT:AMP is for you. With a CONNECT:AMP, you can stream all the music you love directly through any pair of speakers, no amp or receiver needed. It’s ideal for bringing streaming to wired in-wall or in-ceiling speaker systems. It is also ideal for computer speakers, bookshelf speakers or any other speakers that aren’t connected to a receiver. You can even hook up permanently installed patio or poolside speakers to your CONNECT:AMP, then kick back for some non-stop outdoor listening. Just connect the terminals on back of the CONNECT:AMP to your speaker’s inputs with standard speaker wire, then stand back and let the music streaming begin.
