The Crestron® CEN-NSP-1 Network Stream Player delivers a very practical solution for integrating Apple® iTunes® and Internet radio into a Sonnex® Multiroom Audio System or any other audio system. Using AirPlay® or USB, it lets you easily connect an iPod®, iPhone®, or iPad®to your system and instantly start playingyour favorite tracks and playlists throughout your home or workplace. It also serves as an Internet radio tuner, allowing you to enjoy your choice of music, news, and talk without tying up your mobile device. Control over the CEN-NSP-1 and the connected device is enabledthrough a Crestron touch screen, or through a mobile device running the Crestron App.
Wireless Streaming Using AirPlay®
The CEN-NSP-1 allows any AirPlay enabled iOS® device to connect wirelessly over a Wi-Fi® network andstream audio from iTunes (and other AirPlay enabled apps) to your whole-house audio system. Through a Crestron touch screen, you can pause, skip, advance, andrepeat the currently playing track while viewing cover art and metadata (song title, artist, album, etc.). Full navigation of the entire iTunes library remains available on the iOS device. Control over the audio system, as well as lighting and other technologies, can even be accessed on the same iOS device by installing the Crestron App.
USB Wired Interface
Wired USB connectivity affords enhanced Crestron touch screen control withthe ability to navigate the iTunes library and view metadata and cover art. Wired USB also enables compatibility with more devices, allowingvirtually any iOS device to connect using a USB cable or dock. Any Apple dock and/or cable with a USB 2.0 interface can be used with the CEN-NSP-1.
Built-in Internet radio provides access to online music, comedy, sports, news, and talk, with capabilities for browsing channel lists and viewing metadata from a Crestron touch screen or mobile app. The CEN-NSP-1 doesn’t require a mobile device to be connected to enable Internet radio, keeping those devices available for other tasks, and assuring a listening experience uninterrupted by incoming phone calls and text alerts.
The CEN-NSP-1 currently supports SiriusXM® Internet Radio, Spotify®, and vTuner® Internet Radio. Additional streaming services are coming soon.
Dedicated Music Server
Installed in your central equipment cabinet, the CEN-NSP-1 can serve as your primary music server and Internet radio tuner for the whole house. Just connect a dedicated iPod touch or iPhone and you’ve got a music server solution that’s always ready and never has to stop to take a phone call. Leveraging Apple iCloud® and iTunes Match®, your centralized device will always be in sync with your other devices, so every song you’ve ever purchased, downloaded, or imported from a CD will be accessible at all times right from your Crestron touch screen.Unlike other music server solutions, there’s no need to manually upload or sync anything ever.Just add or remove a song on your personal iPhone or computer, and the change is reflected on all your other devices automatically, including the one connected to the CEN-NSP-1.
Even if you don’t want to commit your iOS device as a fulltime music server, you can still enjoy the enhanced touch screen experience that a wired USB connection affords. Simply dock your iPhone at a countertop, credenza, bedside table, or any other convenient location.
