With multi-room wireless audio building in popularity, consumers are faced with two routes when it comes to selecting a speaker system. Do you go with Bluetooth speakers that might be portable or Wi-Fi-connected that offers powerful features? A new product called the Cassia Hub plans on simplifying this situation. Cassia uses its BlueStream technology to set up a wireless whole home audio system.
Here’s how it works. The Cassia Hub is connected to your device and each of your Bluetooth speakers. From there, the smartphone app can stream music to multiple devices at a time just like a SONOS system. Users have access to all the popular services, like Spotify, Apple Music and Pandora. Although there is upfront cost with the Hub, Cassia’s added flexibility for Bluetooth enthusiasts makes this a very attractive product. The Hub with BlueStream is available for purchase starting at $150.
