VSSL, a spinoff of speaker manufacturer TruAudio, has announced a new multi-zone streaming audio player that supports the streaming of six different sources to six different zones simultaneously. The A.6 has built-in support for AirPlay, Chromecast built-in, and Spotify Connect, and it also supports voice control via Google Home. Users can connect to and control the A.6 directly from their native music app on iOS, Android, PC, or Mac devices.
In a world of increasing home electronics that often add unnecessary complexity, VSSL has emerged to create multi-room audio products to improve quality of life through simplification. VSSL leverages over 15 years of experience in developing audio products for the custom integration channel as a spinoff from TruAudio.
We are excited to announce the VSSL flagship product, the A.6, is now shipping. The A.6 is a game-changing device that introduces Native Streaming technology. The A.6 is the first product of its kind to combine AirPlay, Chromecast built-in, and Spotify Connect into every zone of a multi-room architectural speaker solution. Native Streaming gives users the ultimate simplicity in enjoying music. Users connect and control VSSL directly from their native music app on iOS, Android, PC, or Mac.
We are also announcing that VSSL is fully compatible with the Google Home speaker powered by the Google Assistant. With Google Home and VSSL, just say, "Okay Google, play music in the kitchen" or "Okay Google, turn up the volume" to control your in-ceiling speakers. Users get seamless AI voice technology right out of the box.
The A.6 is a six-zone solution capable of streaming six different sources to six different zones simultaneously with patent pending technology. Any room a user walks into, the A.6 is instantly ready for playback from their favorite app. Matrixed inputs and outputs allow for the ultimate flexibility when integrating with other systems.
Company co-founder Dan Allen says, "VSSL is the ultimate user experience. We realize VSSL makes a true connection when we watch users react to VSSL for the first time. It's so intuitive, there is no learning curve. We've worked really hard to make it that easy. We often hear from users, that it is system that they can finally use."
With VSSL, homeowners can be introduced to whole-home audio without the need for added whole-home automation systems, which sometimes, for homeowners, can be expensive and overly complex. Devin Davies, company co-founder and CRO, said, " Setting your music free is the VSSL tag line, but bringing families together without the distraction of cumbersome technology is what makes VSSL special. People just want to use their music apps with their in-ceiling speakers. There's finally a solution for this and a better option for the CI market and the family/user."
Chris Orvin, an early VSSL dealer (Summit Security Solutions) and user, commented, "We have discovered VSSL to be a better solution for the homeowner. It's been trouble-free and opens the door for our customers to access all music and Internet audio with no hassles at a price that's reasonable. VSSL is our new go-to option. Our customers love it."
