CasaTunes Multi-Room Music System Overview

The CasaTunes multi-room music system includes the CasaTunes music server and one or more CasaTunes 6X6 matrix amplifiers.

The CasaTunes music server is the heart and brain of your multi-room music system, supplying four independent High Definition audio streams (or 2 for the CT2-6Z) to the CasaTunes 6X6 matrix amplifier. Each stream, or streamer, acts as a stand-alone music player. You select the music to play on each player, and which player to listen to in each room.  You can listen to the same music in all rooms, or any combination of rooms.

The CasaTunes 6X6 matrix amplifier operates as a switch, switching any of six input sources to any combination of rooms, and as an amplifier, powering the speakers in each room.
