The system also works with music management system Roon, while also having and Universal Plug and Play protocol (UPnP) integration. That means that the Stream Sapphire will be compatible with loads of speakers and wireless gadgets, from smart TVs, Bluetooth speakers, soundbars and just about any smartphone or laptop.
The company’s CES showcase also unveiled the Victrola Automatic, a budget-friendly turntable that comes in at a far more affordable $199 that will be available in Spring. The turntable wont be a Works With Sonos release, but will have Bluetooth compatibilities.
On the more quirky side, Victrola has also announced it’s been working on an innovative new… Rock. Yep – the Victrola Rock Speaker Connect is a Bluetooth speaker designed to look like a rock.
