The RS100 wireless speaker allows you to easily add streaming music capabilities to any room you want. It features DTS Play-Fi® technology that gives the freedom and flexibility to wirelessly play the music on your mobile devices over your existing Wi-Fi network. Simply connect the RS100 to your Wi-Fi network, install the free Play-Fi Appleor Android mobile app or Windows desktop app and then you’re ready to stream your music. The RS100 is a great first piece to introduce yourself to McIntosh’s legendary sound quality and performance standards (standards not found in any other Play-Fi device except their MB50 Streaming Audio Player).
A single RS100 is all that is needed to start building your wireless speaker system; more can be added over time to expand your system. Up to 16 speakers can be connected to a single Wi-Fi network – enough for stereo playback in 8 separate rooms. With the Play-Fi app installed on all your devices, each device can stream different music to each room, giving all family members or guests control over what they want to hear in their room. Besides accessing your personal music library, the apps have built-in support for many leading online streaming services1 including Amazon Prime Music, Deezer, KKBox, Pandora®, QQMusic, Rhapsody®, SiriusXM®, Songza, Spotify® and TIDAL (subject to change), letting you enjoy all your streaming music on your RS100.
Note: Price is per speaker
Not limited to just streaming, the RS100 is flexible thanks to its auxiliary input which allows it to be used in non-streaming setups; it can quickly be switched back and forth between the two inputs to accommodate your listening preference. A subwoofer output is included along with a USB port for firmware updates. Two internal Wi-Fi antennas help ensure a strong network connection for smooth playback; it can also be hardwired to your network via a USB-to-Ethernet adapter (not included).
A big advantage of DTS Play-Fi compared to many other streaming options is that it provides lossless playback of up to 16-bit/48kHz files; it also has playback support for high-resolution music files up to 24-bit/192kHz. Many common audio formats are compatible with the RS100, including .mp3, .m4a, .flac and .wav files; DLNA is supported.
The RS100 is McIntosh’s first speaker to ever feature a blue meter and knobs. It incorporates many classic design cues from their amplifiers and preamplifiers to produce a wireless speaker that is unmistakably McIntosh. An easy to remove magnetically attached grille trimmed with brushed aluminum end caps completes the timeless look.
