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
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.
