Pure Digital (owned by Caskeid creator Imagination Technologies) and Japanese hi-fi maker Onkyo have already announced that they&rsquo;ll be bringing the tech to future products. This makes Caskeid doubly interesting, because not only does it claim to offer higher audio quality than its rivals, it&rsquo;s also able to offer cross-brand support. So you could have a house filled with products made by different companies and stream the same music to all of them simultaneously using Caskeid.</p> <p>Sadly, for those of us in the UK, Peaq won&rsquo;t be one of the brands; its products aren&rsquo;t sold outside Germany and Austria. But we&rsquo;d be very surprised if we don&rsquo;t hear about more audio gear makers jumping onto the Caskeid bandwagon soon.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/music/30-greatest-audiophile-albums/feature">30 essential albums for audiophiles</a></strong></p> <p><iframe src="http://pages.haymarket.com/stuff_signup/enews_embed/" frameborder="0" width="300" height="100"></iframe></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Caskeid works across several brands&#039; products, unlike Sonos or Airplay" alt="Caskeid works across several brands&#039; products, unlike Sonos or Airplay" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/caskeid_0.jpg?1397228887" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/ipod-hi-fi/peaq-latest-hi-fi-maker-support-caskeid-audiophile-quality-streaming/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Hi-Fi & Streaming iPod Hi-Fi Onkyo Pure Fri, 11 Apr 2014 09:22:49 +0000 Sam Kieldsen 1435282 at http://www.stuff.tv Musaic's multiroom audio controls your smarthome, too http://www.stuff.tv/musaics-multiroom-audio-controls-your-smarthome-too/feature <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Turn down the lights and hold on tight, we gonna listen to Barry White all night ahhhh yeah </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Mmmm, we gonna do it (music streaming) in every room" alt="Musaic" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Musaic01HS_0.jpg?1395547135" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/will-dunn" title="View user profile.">Will Dunn</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Hey, why is it suddenly much dimmer in here?</strong></p> <p>Because we&#39;ve got Musaic, baby, and Musaic be the food of love.

All Caskeid-capable products are compatible with each other, even those manufactured by different companies, so you can mix-and-match your multi-room setup. Indeed, inside sources suggest that Onkyo is just the tip of the iceberg - many other manufacturers are planning to adopt Caskeid in the near future.&nbsp;</p> <p>FlowCloud connects audio products to the internet, enabling fuss-free software updates and access to online services like FlowAudio, Imagination&rsquo;s cloud-based music and radio platform that offers over 24 million tracks.</p> <p>As yet there are no details on what form the Caskeid-equipped Onkyo products might take or any indication of when they&rsquo;ll arrive &ndash; but it&rsquo;s unlikely to be this year.

A truly brilliant option at an affordable price.</p> <p><a href="http://www.cambridgeaudio.com/products/minx-go-uk">Cambridge Audio</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Cambridge Audio Minx Go" alt="Cambridge Audio Minx Go" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/cambridge-audio-minx-go.jpg?1383469381" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Pure Digital Jongo S3 (£170) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Jongo’s appeal is two-fold: not only does it work as a wireless portable speaker (with 10 hours of audio playback via its built-in battery), it can also be set up as part of a multi-room music system.</p> <p>For multi-room, there’s no limit to how many Jongos you can add to the system and they can be set up with independent volume levels if you wish. They can also be set to play different tracks simultaneously, although in that case a different source device (i.e. phone or tablet) is required for each song.</p> <p>Wireless audio comes courtesy of either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, the latter being available when both a Jongo and a phone, tablet or computer are sharing a wireless network.</p> <p>And audio quality? The Jongo does a fine job with most material thanks to its taut, controlled bass, clear detail and lack of brightness in the high frequency range.</p> <p><a href="http://www.pure.com/product/jongo-s340b-vl-61996/">Pure Digital</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Pure Digital Jongo S3 " alt="Pure Digital Jongo S3 " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/pure-jongo-s3.jpg?1383469381" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Libratone Zipp (£370) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Yes, it’s pricey, but the Zipp – so called because it, er, has a zip on the outside that allows you to whip off the fuzzy cover and replace it with a different coloured fuzzy cover – delivers excellent sound. Despite its diminutive size, the furry cylindrical speaker pumps out punchy beats and detailed vocals loud enough to fill a decent-sized room.</p> <p>It doesn’t support Bluetooth, instead offering a choice between AirPlay (compatible with iOS gear and any computer running iTunes), DLNA and Libratone’s proprietary PlayDirect. The latter allows you to set up a direct wireless connection from a PC or iOS or Android device, so you don’t need the Zipp and the source to be connected to the same home network. It also supports USB audio and there’s a 3.5mm port for wired stereo sources.</p> <p>The Zipp packs a four-hour battery, so its longevity isn’t quite as impressive as some others here. On the plus side, its leather strap makes it easy to carry around, and looks rather natty too.</p> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/libratone/libratone-zipp/review">Libratone</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Libratone Zipp" alt="Libratone Zipp" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/libratone-zipp.jpg?1383469381" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> JBL Flip (£100) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Flip is another cylindrical speaker that can be set up either vertically or horizontally (we found it performs slightly better vertically, because the speaker is tilted more towards the listener’s ears). It’s a tidy, compact product with solid build quality and an unfussy design.</p> <p>It offers Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming (as well as a customary 3.5mm wired input), and features a built-in battery that’ll be good for around five hours of music playback (it takes about three hours to charge).</p> <p>The Flip benefits from what our chums at What Hi-Fi? describe as an “inviting, rhythmic delivery”. In spite of its diminutive size it presents a large, lively sound with clarity and dynamism and only a hint of harshness at the top end.</p> <p><a href="http://uk.jbl.com/jbl_product_detail_uk/jbl-flip-blk.html">JBL</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="JBL Flip" alt="JBL Flip" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/jbl-flip.jpg?1383469381" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> Cambridge Audio Hi-Fi & Streaming JBL Libratone Lists Pure Sony Thu, 31 Oct 2013 15:55:30 +0000 Sam Kieldsen 1428614 at http://www.stuff.tv Pure aims to crack America with Connect music streaming service http://www.stuff.tv/digital-music-system/pure-takes-fight-stateside-streamers/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Pure takes its Connect service and Jongo streaming systems Stateside to show the big boys how it&#039;s done </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Pure Jongo with Connect " alt="Pure Jongo with Connect " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Pure-Jongo-Connect.jpg?1382697895" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Pure, British purveyor of fine desktop radios and in-car audio systems, has announced that it's taking its music streaming service, Connect, stateside.</p> <p>The launch coincides with the US debut of the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/pure-digital/pure-reveals-s340b-wireless-multi-room-speaker-system/news" target="_blank">Jongo</a>&nbsp;multiroom Wi-Fi music system, which now plays nicely with the&nbsp;<a href="http://connect.pure.com/p#!/uk" target="_blank">Connect</a> streaming service and is already available to buy in Best Buy, Walmart and Amazon.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/ben-stinson" title="View user profile.">Ben Stinson</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Move over, Spotify </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>As much as Pure would like any user to sign up to Connect, the service really comes into its own when partnered with a Jongo.
