ARCTIC launches Audio Relay

ARCTIC has announced the launch of its Audio Relay system and its free Remote AR application.

The company’s audio relay system is designed to offer users the ability to access a centralised music library via their smart phone and create a personal playlist, which can be played in a separate room. This allows multiple users in different locations within the same building to access and personalise their playlist without the need for individual librarys.

To install the Audio Relay system, users are only required to connect it to their WiFi network. Furthermore, the Remote AR is now available for free download on both the Android Market and the App Store.

The Audio Relay is available at an MSRP of $132.60 USD or €99.95 EUR (excluding VAT) and comes with a two-year limited warranty.
