Comparisons: Myro:Air vs. Arcam airDAC Airplay UPnP DAC / Streamer
As of this post, there are only two Apple Certified AirPlay Streamers featuring high-quality DAC’s. The Arcam airDAC and Myro:Air. Both streamer/DAC combos are very capable but offer different features and components. As far as streaming capabilities both offer AirPlay streaming and are compatible with devices (e.g. Windows & Android) that can stream content to UPnP DMR’s (Myro:Air has been tested with the following media types).

Myro:Air AirPlay Streamer Now Available For Pre-Order!
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!

Video Preview: Introducing Myro:Air, The AirPlay Streamer for Home Integration & Audiophiles
If you have been wondering why the lack of posts here at Mavromatic, it’s because I have been heads down working on a new product for Myro Control. It’s now to the point that I can give you all a sneak peak of Myro:Air!
This will be the first certified Apple AirPlay hardware device that features audiophile sound quality using the highly respected WM8741 DAC by Wolfson Microelectronics. Myro:Air will also be a home integrators dream come true — yup — it will feature RS232 and “Myro:Link” which will provide full metadata and transport control (Play/Pause/Next/Previous) of the AirPlay stream. This means Crestron, Control4, Russound and any other system that can interface via RS232 or Russound RNET will be able to control and receive metadata from the AirPlay stream.
Myro:Air will also provide a USB port that will allow iOS device charging and control/playback as well. So you can either plug in your iPad/iPhone/iPod touch or any iPod and it will not only charge the device but will also stream digital audio processed through the quality DAC and provide metadata and transport control via the connected control system.
I’m very proud and excited about this new product and can’t wait to get it to market. Email preorderAIR@myrocontrol.com if you’d like to get on the early pre-order list. The first run will be VERY limited so get on the waiting list now!…

Crestron Prodigy – Low-Cost Media Control/Automation Solution?
Crestron has announced the release of their entry level automation solution aimed at competing with Control4. In a nutshell, the Crestron Prodigy is a media controller with a remote that retails for around $700. There is also an in-wall touchscreen option which will cost less than $700. The system supports up to 16 zones of audio and wireless dimmers will sell for about $99. Overall, this sounds like an interesting price-point and system. Not sure how this will play out for Crestron as they are considered the “Rolls-Royce Of Automation” and we don’t see Rolls-Royce coming out with an economy car… yet.
