McIntosh RS200 Wireless Speaker
For non-streaming applications, it has an audio-only HDMI ARC1 input that connects only to TVs that have Audio Return Channel (ARC) capabilities; an optical input to connect TVs without ARC, or digital sources such as CD Players; a USB Type-B input to play music from your Macintosh or Windows computer; and a 3.5mm AUX input for connecting various analog music sources.
Not just for music, you can connect the RS200 to your TV to enjoy better sound than your TV speakers or soundbars can provide. With the amazing 4K video today’s TVs can produce, it’s time the sound matched the picture quality. For enveloping home theatre sound, connect a pair of our Play-Fi compatible RS100 Wireless Speakers (sold separately) to use as surround speakers.
AirPlay 2 is an Apple technology designed to control home audio systems and speakers in any room – with a tap or by just asking Siri – right from an iPhone®, iPad®, HomePod™, or Apple TV®. It offers multiroom audio, Siri voice control, and enhanced playback. The RS200 is an Amazon Works With Alexa certified product. Simply speak to your Alexa control device to operate your RS200 from any room.2 You can designate the RS200 as your Alexa Preferred Speaker in the Alexa app, then you’ll no longer need to specify the RS200 by name in order for music to play on it. Voice commands as simple as “Alexa, play top-40” to a linked control device will initiate playback on the RS200. The RS200 does not contain any listening capabilities and relies entirely on an Alexa control device for voice control.
Play-Fi from DTS has built-in interfaces for many leading streaming services including Amazon Prime Music, Pandora®, Qobuz, SiriusXM®, Spotify® and TIDAL to name just a few (list subject to change).3You can save up to four of your favorite Play-Fi streaming services via the preset buttons on the top of the RS200; once configured, you can quickly play the saved streaming services directly from the cloud without needing a mobile device by simply tapping the preset buttons. You can also stream audio from wired devices connected to the RS200 to other Play-Fi devices on your network (such as the RS100 Wireless Speaker) via Play-Fi Line In Broadcasting. And Play-Fi’s Critical Listening mode allows you to send your high resolution audio files to the RS200 with no transcoding or downsampling.
With its space saving design and room filling sound, the RS200 is versatile enough to accommodate the audio needs of any room in your home. While designed for modern streaming, it features classic McIntosh design elements such as a black glass front panel, illuminated logo, control knobs, and a pair of fast responding blue Watt meters.
