Audio Automation via Apple

  • Brent Butterworth

One of the most powerful audio remote controls ever created may well be resting in your pocket right now. With its RNET Touchpoint user interface, Russound now gives Apple iPhones complete control over its extensive line of multiroom audio systems. Simply tap the Russound icon that appears on the iPhone’s home screen to gain access to the system. In any room, the iPhone can control volume, select the music source, browse tunes on a docked iPod or a Russound music server, and select a radio station. Artist, song, and radio-station information are displayed instantly on the iPhone’s screen. The only additional piece of hardware required is a $599 interface that connects the Russound system to a home network. Those who prefer other smart phones will be happy to learn that the RNET Touchpoint interface also works with Apple’s iPod Touch music player. (800.638.8055, www.russound.com)
