Integration between Crestron and SqueezeCenter

Logo

If you own Crestron system or you’re Crestron integrator and by some reason you don’t like its multi-room functionality you may use budget Logitech’s Squeezeboxes. The Crestron module for SqueezeCenter will help you to do that. It’s written in SIMPL+ and can be compiled into a SIMPL Windows program. That program can be loaded by to the Crestron processor then.

I like Squeezebox devices and I’m very interested to hear some opinions people who tried that module practically. Will be very appreciated if you drop the comment.

Polk Audio announced its SurroundBar

SurroundBar SDA

Polk Audio introduced its new SurroundBar line on the CES 2009 in Las Vegas. It packs four 2.5-inch treated composite bass-midrange drivers, along with two 13mm polymer dome tweeters that provide a high-frequency response out to 22 KHz. It also features Polk’s own SDA Stereo Dimensional Array Technology.

Together with SurroundBar Polk offers wireless subwoofer. It’s really good addition because the weak point of surround bars is bass. So, subwoofer will solve that and consumer will be able to add high-end sound to his or her flat panel.

The new Polk SurroundBar with wireless subwoofer is expected to ship this month with MSRP $499.
