Systemline has introduced the S7 Netlink, designed to better integrate whole house audio systems and home cinema across a variety of AV receiver brands.

S7 Netlink addresses the issues of playing a multiroom audio system through a home cinema amplifier, which can result in installers wiring separate stereo speakers for music to avoid integration issues, only to be faced with customers questioning why the music was not playing through their main speakers and subwoofer. The alternative has been to connect the multiroom system as a source that utilises the speakers, but this can create complicated control issues, says owner Armour Home.

The S7 Netlink supports control of major brand AV Receivers from Arcam, Denon, Marantz, Onkyo, Yamaha and NAD. The installer simply selects the brand, the input used and the control method from a web page setup.

It can take direct control of an AV Receiver via a smart 2-way interface using RS232 or TCP/IP; from switch on and source selection to volume control. The user can select the music or radio station they want, using the S7 App in the same way they would in any other room connected to an S7 Systemline installation.

“Integrating a whole house audio system and home cinema has always been a challenge for installers but the launch of S7 Netlink is a game changer as it is simple to install and use,” says Paul Hilditch, Brand Manager at Systemline.

Netlink is also a Hi-Fi streamer in its own right and will play digital music files up to 24bit, 192kHz. It features up-sampling of all source material to the same maximum resolution. Front panel controls include one-touch selection of any stored favourite, be it radio station, album or playlist. A variety of inputs and outputs are included for added flexibility.
