The MBX-PRE Streaming Audio Player is designed to offer a simple-to-install and simple-to-configure streaming media solution to add high quality streaming audio content to any audio system. The MBX-PRE can be used as a single stereo audio streaming source for a single room, or supply a single audio stream to a larger whole-house system through its easy-to-use analog line-level/digital (coax/optical) outputs.
The MBX-PRE allows for expansion to up to 32 streaming rooms of audio in a single installation with any combination of other MBX-Series streaming products from Russound. When paired with a Russound multi-room controller, system expansion is possible up to 8 independent audio sources and up to 48 total rooms of audio.
In addition to offering streaming audio from popular internet sources, the MBX-PRE also offers streaming of local UPnP™ compliant audio.
In addition, a built-in USB port allows users to connect an external flash drive or an externally powered USB hard drive for use as additional music sources.
There are several ways to control the MBX-PRE. You can issue voice commands and queries via Amazon Alexa and Google Home, or you can use a handy Russound XTSPlus in-wall touchscreen. For remote control on your mobile device, download the MyRussound™ app.
