HiddenWires: Belgian Artsound, a leading developer of multi-room multi-source systems introduces the ART5.4 and ART8.8 models. Both systems are based on the ZIGBEE radio frequency technology, enabling the user to do everything the advanced multi-room multi-source systems can, however using bi-directional wireless communication.
These systems have two built-in FM tuners, the ability to play Internet radio, USB, SD card reader, the possibility of up to 3 simultaneous audio streams, etc. There are four or eight zones, depending on the type of device. However, thanks to expansion modules, music can be sent to additional zones.
The user can see what is playing in his or her zone on the intelligent remote control. Whether the sound is an MP3 file, RDS information or a CD track.
The ART2.1 will now also see the light of day. The ART2.1 can support 2 sources (one of which is a built-in FM tuner) which are controlled using the RF hand-held transmitter.
