HEBRON, Ky., October 11, 2016 – Legrand, the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, announced the availability of the AU7100-xx Bluetooth Receiver, which further expands wireless music streaming capability to the company’s On-Q Digital Audio System. The AU7100-xx streams content via Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP v1.2 and APTX for superior wireless audio quality.
Legrand’s On-Q Digital Audio System delivers exceptional listening experiences with built-in digital source variety, convenient in-wall amplified keypads, aesthetic app control, and high-quality sound through an easy-to-install structured wiring design. It is simple, scalable, repeatable and can distribute feature-rich audio in up to sixteen zones throughout a home or other facility.
“The On-Q Digital Audio receiver makes it easier than ever to stream music from any device - your smartphone, tablet and any other portable Bluetooth source through the On-Q Digital Audio System,” said Fritz Werder, Legrand VP/general manager, On-Q and Nuvo lines. “Its plug-and-play design offers a powerful and affordable addition to our structured wiring multi-room audio solution.”
The AU7100-xx is a small and unobtrusive device that plugs easily into the system via either a Global Source Input (AU7007) or Local Source Input (AU7008).
