Control and automation manufacturer RTI has introduced the MS-1 Music Streamer. The latest addition to its music control offerings, the MS-1 provides integrators with a single-stream solution that fully integrates with existing RTI control systems in residential and commercial settings.

It can also be used to add a stream to an existing RTI Music system.

The MS-1 is high-resolution (24bit/192kHz) capable, and works with both streaming music services and local NAS files from a client's personal music collection, with lossless FLAC and ALAC audio formats supported.

Compatible streaming services include Spotify, BBC Sounds, Qobuz, SiriusXM, Pandora, iHeart, TuneIn, and an AirPlay option that enables Apple Music and Amazon Music.

Partnered with RTI control and RTI Music, users can access playlists and search favourite songs, artists, and albums on their preferred services, within the RTI control app.

AirPlay enables any user with Apple Music to play from their chosen platform on any Apple device. A Music Queue feature allows a queue of songs to be built on the fly. A Favourites playlists can integrate songs from multiple services and local devices.

Commercial installations can also utilise SoundMachine, which offers fully licensed, cloud-based music service for businesses. Consequently, RTI dealers can offer fully licensed music services (ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SOCAN, RE-SOUND and Global Music Rights) in restaurants, bars, and hotels.

"Music is a touchpoint of life, whether you're at home or at a business, and we want to make it easy and enjoyable to access music playlists and streaming services from within the RTI control experience," said Neal Ellsworth, RTI Director of Product Management. "The MS-1 delivers a single stream option with all the integrator and user benefits of the RTI Music system. Together, the MS-1 and the three-stream MS-3 give the integrator options to cost-effectively get the right number of streams into a project."

The MS-1 will ship in early June.
