The KB Sound SOUNDAROUND with Qi65CST Stereo Ceiling Speaker is a superb in-wall installed Bluetooth and Wireless Multiroom Audio Amplifier utilising a quality stereo speaker for an affordable Multiroom Audio System.

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

Included with this system is a Single Stereo Q Acoustics 6" Qi65CST Ceiling Speaker (a second additional speaker can also be purchased). 

This speaker is suitable for use in smaller rooms or rooms that a long and narrow - great when room to install is at a premium but still able to produce stereo sound thanks to being a popular and reliable speaker from a reputable manufacturer that can handle easily between 15-60 watts.

You can use either one single speaker, or select a second speaker for larger rooms.

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 stereo ceiling speaker 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 SOUNDAROUND can 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.
