Russound DMS-3.1 Digital Media Streamer


Russound introduced the multi-room, network-based DMS-3.1 Digital Media Streamer that can send four simultaneous audio signals — from Internet, music files, connected storage or built-in AM/FM tuner — to any room in a home.

Occupying just one rack unit at 17″ W x 8.5″D x 1.7″H (43 x 21.7 x 4.3cm), the DMS-3.1 Digital Media Streamer features rear panel stereo audio output jacks for each audio stream and a Source ID Switch for each stream to easily identify it within the system. Designed to work with Russound C-Series controllers and multiroom audio systems, the DMS-3.1 connects to the controller via an Ethernet LAN (wired RJ45) home network connection. The DMS-3.1 can also play back audio files on LAN-connected DLNA devices, such as network drives, which may be located in various rooms throughout the home.

The DMS-3.1 supports intelligent user interfaces with media menus and metadata displayed on system keypads and touchscreens. Russound C-Series keypads or touch screens provide easy control of the streams, along with meta data information.

Assuming that the home network (LAN) is also connected to the Internet, the DMS-3.1 can stream content from online radio stations and music services. A total of three USB ports (two on the rear panel; one on the front panel) enable streaming of digital audio files from connected storage devices. (File formats include MP3 (CBR, VBR), WAV (8, 16-bit), OGG Vorbis, FLAC [8, 16-bit], AAC and AAC+.)

The DMS-3.1 also incorporates an AM/FM Radio Tuner with RDS feedback, and corresponding rear panel FM Coax and loop antenna connections for local radio listening throughout the home.

Thanks to efficient design, the DMS-3.1 uses less than 1 Watt of power in standby mode, ensuring full compliance with ERP requirements. Input and output trigger connections are provided on the rear of the unit to take the DMS-3.1 out of standby mode for energy efficiency.

Price and Availability
The Russound DMS-3.1 Digital Media Streamer is available for $2,100.
