Have you been craving the easy access to music that streaming offers–but you’re just not ready to invest in a whole new system? With a CONNECT you can stream music wirelessly through any amplified audio system. We’re talking about large, floor-standing speakers that are powered by an amp. Or surround sound speakers wired into a home theatre setup. In fact, any existing audio system that includes an amp or receiver. Just run an audio cable from the output of the CONNECT to an input on your existing stereo. Since the CONNECT offers analogue (RCA), optical and digital coaxial outputs, it’s completely compatible with just about any audio system currently available.
