The KB Sound SOUNDAROUND with Qi65CB Ceiling Speakers is the latest in-wall installed Bluetooth and Wireless Multiroom Audio Amplifier paired with high quality speakers for an affordable Multiroom Audio System.

Each KB Sound SOUNDAROUNDMultiroom Audio Amplifier, powered by Qualcomm AllPlay technology, is fully contained within the wall panel that fits into a space roughly the same size as a double socket, and no back box is required as the unit is supplied with fitting frame.

Included with this package are a pair of Q Install 6.5 Qi65CB Ceiling Speakers, featuring good bass response, detailed mid-range and extended high frequency range; these are exceptionally popular and reliable speakers that can handle easily between 10-50 watts.

To install, just run low voltage power from the supplied transformer to the in-wall amplifier, Ethernet Cable (optional, but recommended) and the speaker cables to the Q Acoustics ceiling speakers for Wireless Multiroom Audio in your home.

The Qualcomm AllPlay App, available for both iOS & Android devices, acts as your control for this WiFi Multiroom Audio System.

From the App, you can play Internet radio via TuneIn Radio, together with music streaming services including Napster, Spotify, etc, and also local music stored on the connected device.

Just like other well-known Multiroom Audio Systems, the KB Sound SOUNDAROUNDcan be linked in party mode to play the same music in every room simultaneously or if you wish you, play different music in every room from various sources. It allows connection for other SOUNDAROUND products, either in-wall or standalone, to work together.

However, unlike other Wireless Audio Systems with the in-wall amplifier you can re-stream local Bluetooth audio to any other amplifier including freestanding SOUNDAROUND Wi-Fi speakers from the range, which is a fantastic feature if, for example, you'd like to play YouTube audio into your Multiroom System.

In addition to the re-stream feature for local Bluetooth audio, this Wireless Multiroom Audio Amplifier also has the ability cast the 3.5mm audio input over Wi-Fi between other amplifiers around the home, perfect for playing vinyl or an old iPod or other MP3 device via your Multiroom System.

With easy push-button WPS Wi-Fi Protected Setup feature, dual band 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-fi frequencies supported, or the ability to connect via an Ethernet Cable (recommended) directly, setting up your integrated Multiroom Audio System couldnt be simpler.
