From RIVA Audio
RIVA Audio has announced the release of RIVA CENTRAL, a wireless amplifier system that gives users the ability to connect their existing audio devices into RIVA WAND's Multi-Room "+" ecosystem. With more inputs than comparable devices, the CENTRAL can connect your favorite devices like a turntable, USB memory stick, pair of bookshelf/in-wall speakers, or an external amplifier/receiver. The CENTRAL offers analog and optical digital inputs and outputs, USB input, and an optional 55 watts RMS/channel into 4 ohms Class D amplifier. Users can also power on external amplifiers with the included 12V trigger and utilize the line-level variable subwoofer output for a true 2.1 system.

"We designed the CENTRAL to give you full access to the RIVA WAND ecosystem without limitation to which speaker you listen to. Whether in-ceiling, in-wall, or your own legendary speakers, this unique device centralizes the control of all your music," says Rikki Farr, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of RIVA Audio.

RIVA Audio's award-winning RIVA WAND Series is a customizable and easy-to-use multi-room "+" wireless audio system that combines the freedom to deliver high-fidelity audio to every room or outdoor location with the flexibility to play from any networked or local source. RIVA's WAND Series features the compact ARENA and full-range tabletop FESTIVAL speakers. Users can enjoy their favorite music from a multitude of connectivity options including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, AirPlay, and DLNA and can stream seemingly unlimited audio content from Spotify Connect and others. Now, RIVA CENTRAL adds even more to that flexibility, allowing users to truly listen to whatever they want, wherever they want, whenever they want on any and all devices. Listen how you want by personalizing your audio streaming experience with the RIVA WAND app, including DSP adjustments for bass and treble.

The RIVA CENTRAL will be shipping in Spring 2018 with a black finish and retails for only $399.
