ReQuest Streams Ahead with iQ Intelligent Music System

Ballston Spa, New York–September 5, 2007–ReQuest, Inc.’s iQ Intelligent Music System has won universal praise for its uniquely elegant integration of whole-house audio and music-server technologies. The iQ Intelligent Music System range combines the convenience of easy and intuitive multiroom sound with the high-end sonic quality and powerful musical storage of hard-disk-based design for which the New York State company is well known. Now the iQ Intelligent Music System adds even more value and utility, with the introduction of dual-stream Internet radio capability.

Effective immediately, fully integrated streaming audio takes the form of two additional, dedicated sources, over and above the four music-server “sources” already inherent in the iQ family design. This makes the Intelligent Music System the first server-based whole-house solution to offer six independent music sources out of the box, ready for plug-and-play enjoyment in up to eight rooms or zones. Users may stream any of the thousands of MP3 Internet-audio sources scattered across the Web, simply by entering the URL or IP address; “stations” can then be identified by an attached icon, or an image such as album-cover art or a user-selected photo, for easy graphical access from the iQ system’s in-wall and freestanding touchscreen controllers. And of course, either or both streaming source can be enjoyed from any or all of the Intelligent Music System’s rooms or zones.

Dual-stream Internet audio is included at no additional charge in all new shipments of iQ Intelligent Music System servers: models IMS.400, IMS.600, and IMS.800. Existing Intelligent Music Servers can be retrofitted with dual-stream capability by Request at a cost of $500.
