Enjoy it all on one system. Add streaming services to the app to play a relaxing Spotify playlist before bed or change the mood of your weekend with a new album on Apple Music. Connect your home theater products to your TV to hear every detail while catching up on shows or rewatching the classics.

Group speakers in different rooms

Connect two or more speakers together so they play in sync.
