    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!

    myro_air_prototype_angle

     

    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!…

    Myro:Bridge – Kaleidescape to Russound RNET

    I have been busy releasing a bunch of new firmware updates for Myro:Bridge and one that I’m especially proud of is the newest Kaleidescape to Russound RNET. The Kaleidescape is a very slick piece of hardware, not only for exact CD quality audio playback but for video (including Bluray). We have had a unit in for testing while we write the firmware and it will be a sad day when I have to ship the unit back. Until then, I’m enjoying every minute with it. Check out the video showing how Myro:Bridge tightly integrates a Kaleidescape with Russounds whole house audio controllers using RNET and the Myro:Bridge.…

    Myro:Bridge – Russound RNET HDMI Switcher Controller (firmware)

    UPDATE: Now with Octava HDMI Switcher Support!

    If you have been waiting for Russound to release a RNET based HDMI switcher to replace the VM1 series look no further! I’ve created a firmware to control Wyrestorm HDMI Matrix Switchers (4×2, 4×4 and 8×8) via Myro:Bridge. The onboard webpage allows you to configure/map the input and outputs of the matrix switcher to the sources and zones of your Russound controller. It’s an elegant system which is future proof and expandable. The Myro:Bridge plugs into the RNET ports and a RS232 cable is connected to the Wyrestorm switcher — it’s that easy! Watch the video for a quick demo on how it works.…

    Just launched the Myro:Bridge website.  Pre-orders begin now and if there aren’t any production issues, we should be shipping orders in a few weeks.   The first batch of bridges will be a limited run to see how much interest there is so get your order in now to guarantee shipment!

    Myro:Bridge – Russound RNET to Apple iTunes (Remote)

    Lots has been going on over the past few weeks… final PCB designs have been sent out for production. A new product web site is reaching completion leaving final assembly and testing left before I can start shipping the Myro:Bridge (that is going to be the final name). As promised, I have a video of the newest firmware which offers Russound RNET to Apple iTunes control. This is like the Russound RNET to Sonos except that you can pair, control and get metadata two and from Russound Keypads via iTunes. Enjoy!…
