Crestron announced a lineup of in-wall, in-ceiling and landscape speakers developed through a partnership with Origin Acoustics. Crestron is also announcing the DM NAX matrix/amplifier and streaming music player for high-performance audio-over-IP and native integration with Crestron Home.
The new line of Crestron Speakers made by Origin Acoustics fall within two performance tiers: Reference and Ultimate. Speakers from the baseline-level “Reference” tier, made up of in-ceiling, in-wall, and landscape models, feature Origin’s patented silk tweeters and glass fiber drivers. Speakers from the “Ultimate” tier, made up of in-ceiling, in-wall, marine-grade and landscape models, feature carbon-fiber components and ceramic-coated aluminum tweeters.
Crestron Residential Speakers are made to support the output capacity of the DM NAX amplifier.
Describing a gap in the market for an audio solution that could integrate into a smart home platform, Crestron says it added the DM NAX matrix/amplifier line for connectivity with native music streaming from today’s most popular services. With Crestron Home integration, homeowners can control of their home audio from mobile devices, touch screens, remotes, keypads and voice-activated devices.
Crestron Residential Speakers made by Origin Acoustics will ship in April, while the Crestron DM NAX line will ship in early June.
