Home Controls now carries a new name in the wireless audio streaming industry: Juke Audio.

Wireless audio streaming is now the standard in everyday home audio usage, but every premium audio streaming hub or audio distribution matrix still faces hiccups or roadblocks when in use. Whether you need a specific app to control a system or be within a certain distance of your selected output, these annoyances interrupt the listening experience.


This is where Juke Audio comes in.

Juke Audio and their Multi-Room Streaming Amplifier focus on delivering high quality, lossless audio streaming that is easy to use from unboxing to daily usage. Their Wi-Fi connected Streaming Amplifier comes in two models: 6 zone/12 channels and 8 zone/16 channels. Both models output at 40W per channel up to 8 Ohm speaker impedance and can play audio across an entire system or within selected zones from 1 to 4 audio sources. This means that up to 4 separate users can play audio at the same time or 1 user can play audio from 4 different apps at once. Multiple Juke Audio Amplifiers can be connected for larger homes and buildings can be controlled as one system.

 

Wireless streaming is accomplished via Airplay, Airplay2, AirMusic for Android, and Spotify Connect over a Wi-Fi connection. Smartphones, tablets, or laptops can deliver audio from Spotify, Apple Music, Prime Music, Pandora, iHeartRadio, SiriusXM, and more. Individual users can connect multiple audio sources simultaneously to various zones, such having Spotify, Youtube, and Pandora all playing audio from one device, thereby acting as 3 different audio sources.

 

Additionally, the Juke Audio Streaming Amplifier can support wired connections to TVs, surround-sound amplifiers, and AV streaming devices like Apple TV, as well as Bluetooth wireless connectivity through one of its 2 built-in USB ports. While a third-party USB adapter is required for these connections, this design decision keeps the cost of the Juke Amplifier low compared to other audio streaming matrices. Through the USB ports, users can also add voice control compatibility by plugging in a smart assistant, like the Amazon Echo.

The Juke Audio Amplifier is controlled through the Juke Web app. This browser-based web interface simply requires users to be on the same Internet network as the Amplifier. After initial installation of the amplifier, use a web browser to connect to the amplifier’s IP address and login. Once the connection is established users can either save the address as a bookmark or as a custom icon on a smart device’s home screen for easy access. From the web interface, users can configure and name zones, select their output and audio sources, and adjust channel volumes and balance.
