It’s been a while since I last uploaded a video to YouTube. In this video I give an update on my YouTube channel, a neat Fusion 360 tip (attaching canvas and using the calibrate feature), show an extremely basic process of designing something in Fusion 360, sending it to Simplify3D slicer then printing on the 3D Printer. I will be posting more videos on YouTube so please subscribe to my channel as it definitely puts wind in my sails and influences the type of content I create.
I’m proud to announce that after two and a half years and thousands of man hours Myro:Air has passed Apple Certification for AirPlay and Made for iPod, iPhone and iPad. Myro:Air is designed, engineered and made in the U.S.A with domestic and foreign parts. The boards are assembled in Washington State — one of the main goals in creating Myro:Air was to keep as much of the product made in the U.S.A. as possible.
From a technical perspective, Myro:Air is the first AirPlay streamer of it’s kind (most AirPlay devices are wireless speaker systems or receivers). Features like RS-232 for home automation/control systems like Crestron and AMX brings transport control (play, pause, next track, previous track) and metadata integration to custom installers. As well as smartsource support for Russound RNET based controllers. For the audio output side, Myro:Air provides analog output via the venerable Wolfson WM8741 DAC. It can also output digital audio in parallel via a Wolfson WM8804.
I’m especially excited to finally be able to share Myro:Air with the rest of the world!
Progress! These last few weeks have been very productive; finalized the boards and received the custom stainless steel name badges — each one is uniquely struck with a number. As we will be initially only producing 100 units, numbers 1-100 have been made. Soon you will be able to reserve your unit — email email@example.com and you will be notified when the site launches.
What is myro:air? An audiophile grade AirPlay streamer featuring the highly regarded Wolfson WM8741 DAC as well as 2-way control of the AirPlay device via RS232 & Russound RNET interfaces, this is a custom integrators dream come true. Two long years in the making and we’re almost ready!
What’s next? I will be getting sample production boards in a couple weeks.
