Eve Play: AirPlay Streaming and Multi-Room Support for Your Classic Stereo
Munich, August 31, 2023 – Eve Systems, a prominent pioneer in the smart home industry worldwide, today announced Eve Play, a high-quality audio streaming interface for AirPlay. Sporting RCA and digital outputs, Eve Play adds streaming capabilities to existing amplifiers, active speakers or soundbars streaming-capable, and also integrates them perfectly synchronized in multi-room setups with other AirPlay speakers such as Apple HomePods. In addition to 2.4/5 GHz Wi-Fi, an integrated Ethernet port ensures maximum stable streaming quality. The powerful digital-to-analog converter with a signal-to-noise ratio of 112 dB guarantees an audiophile sound experience. With its classic aluminum and glossy black finish, Eve Play is designed to blend in perfectly with your Hi-Fi components.
Eve Play will be available starting November 14 from Eve (www.evehome.com/store) and Amazon at a price of $149.95 / €149.95. Eve Play is on display at IFA Berlin (1 Sept to 5 Sept 2023) at the Eve booth in Hall 22, alongside many other innovations.
Dynamics & Style
Eve Play is built around a Texas Instruments digital-to-analog converter that processes recordings cleanly and in rich detail with a signal-to-noise ratio of 112 dB. While compact in size, Eve Play features a complete array of connectivity options, including an Ethernet port, 2.4/5 GHz Wi-Fi, RCA connectors, and optical and coaxial digital outputs.
When it comes to integration into the home, Eve Play not only shines visually - Eve Play is a Red Dot Design Award 2023 winner - but also in terms of its multi-room qualities: Eve Play groups your classic stereo system and other AirPlay speakers into a perfectly simultaneous orchestra, because any latencies can be adjusted either automatically or manually via the Eve app's Audio Sync feature.
And it gets even smarter – when you use Apple Home and have an Apple Music subscription, you can even integrate Eve Play into automations and have your favorite music welcome you when you arrive home.
