The new Dynaudio Connect wireless transmitter brings a new level of connectivity and convenience to the second generation Dynaudio Xeo and the recently introduced Dynaudio Focus XD models.
WiFi (DLNA, Spotify Connect)
High-Res Mode for streaming one digital input up to 24/96 to the Focus XD
Multi Room Mode for simultaneous streaming of inputs up to 16/48 to Xeo (second generation) and Focus XD
The Connect is based on the Dynaudio Hub, sharing its form factor and offering the same analogue and digital audio inputs including a USB input for computers, while adding Wi-Fi integration for the home network, Bluetooth connectivity for streaming from mobile devices such as smartphones, and 24/192 compatibility on the optical and coaxial digital audio inputs.
When used together with the Focus XD, the Connect also is capable of lossless high-res streaming from the Connect to the speakers – with full 24 bit depth and up to 96 kHz sample rate high-resolution wireless audio transmission.
The Connect also allows one to operate the Xeo (second generation) or Focus XD models with the App Control for iOS instead of the Xeo or Focus XD remote control. The Dynaudio App is ideal to control either the Xeo (4 and 6) or the Focus XD loudspeakers and the Connect, allowing users to select the audio input, set the volume level, or power the speakers on and off.
The App Control also features the added convenience of enabling the re-naming of the inputs, such as ”CD Player” instead of Coax, or ”Flatscreen” instead of Opt, thus enabling a personalized level of customization and more simplified operation.
The App also enables the Zones to be re-named when using the speakers in a multi-room setup, as Zone ”Blue” may be re-named as ”Guestroom”, for example. With or without App, the Dynaudio Connect's Wi-Fi integration with Spotify Connect and DLNA makes it easy to stream your music completely wirelessly, for example from a DLNA player connected to your network, which streams music to the Xeo or Focus XD via the Connect.
Smart phones or portable music devices can be easily be wirelessly paired to the Dynaudio Connect via Bluetooth with A2DP, apt-x and AAC compatibility. The Dynaudio Connect simply makes operating and listening to the Xeo (second gen) and Focus XD loudspeakers more convenient, versatile and easier than ever before.
