Native Streaming – The New Way To Play Music
VSSL's products utilize a revolutionary streaming technology known as Native Streaming™. Native Streaming allows you to easily command your home audio by controlling the selected zones and volume control through your preferred music or audio playing app. This means you can play music from Spotify, Pandora, or YouTube, select where in your home you wish to hear it, and adjust volume levels without leaving the selected app or using a physical remote control or third-party app. This gives you a seamless and simple home audio experience unlike any other.
After initial setup using the Google Home or VSSL apps, all you have to do is connect to your home Wi-Fi, open your favorite audio app, choose which zone to play in, and your music will immediately begin playing. You don't have to open those two apps again except for audio equalizing and reconfiguring zones. No device syncing like with Bluetooth, and no login ID or passwords necessary, aside from your home Wi-Fi password.
Built-In Compatibility with Google Home
The A.1 Home Audio Streaming System features out-of-the-box Google Home and Google Assistant compatibility. Use Google Home App to set up and name your audio zones. The names you give your zones will appear across all casting apps. A.1 multi-room audio distribution system can be completely controlled by your voice with Google Assistant.
Convenient, Advanced Controls Through the VSSL App
Use the VSSL app to set and adjust audio quality, volume settings, and zone configuration. You can set volume limits for individual or all zones, adjust EQ settings, and mirror any preferred settings across other selected zones or for the whole system.
With multiple VSSL products or pre-existing audio systems, you can create pre-set audio scenes that are separate from the normal zones. These scenes, or party zones, allow you to select multiple zones to play audio in one easy button press. These party groups don't overwrite your existing audio zones, so you don't have to worry about resetting your original zones once the party is over.
The VSSL A.1 Home Audio Streaming System provides local inputs used to connect to your home audio system. The A.1 can be placed on a flat tabletop surface, mounted onto a wall with included drywall screws, or mounted onto a standard 1U rack shelf (two A.1 units can fit into a single shelf). The A.1 Home also comes with magnetic feet for secure mounting or stacking onto multiple A.1 Homes units.
To connect to your home audio system, connect all phoenix connectors and auxiliary cables to the matrix.
The multi-room audio distribution system is primarily designed for use with 8/4-ohm third-party speakers (sold separately), which wire into the phoenix connectors on the back of the matrix using size 14-20 gauge speaker wire. Each A.1 supports 1 pair of speakers (1 left-channel speaker, 1 right-channel speaker). In addition to supporting wire-in speakers, the matrix also optionally supports an external amplifier system (such as a home theater receiver, powered subwoofer, or passive subwoofer with separate amplifier), which connects to the bus output on the matrix.
External audio inputs can also be connected, allowing you to distribute audio from any RCA analog source, such as a satellite TV box.
The A.1 Home requires an ethernet cable (sold separately) to include the A.1 into your home network. Once the A.1 is added to your network, set up your A.1 with the Google Home App and the VSSL App for iOS, Android, or PC. First, select and set up your zones with the Google Home App. Then, adjust audio balancing, volume limits and EQ settings using the VSSL app. After initial set up is complete, select an audio app, press the Cast button, select a zone, and begin your new home audio experience.
Optional Third-Party System Integration
The A.1 Home Audio Streaming System's open API, customizable drivers, and Google Home compatibility make it easy to add home automation systems. You can add the A.1 to any Google Home compatible automation system to remotely turn on and off the device. The system can also be controlled by universal IR remote controls.
VSSL is designed to provide consistent performance and stability. The A.1 multi-room audio distribution system is built with high-power circuitry, 50 watts per channel, and audio outputs at 8 and 4 ohms for high quality and long-lasting sound.
