New York, February 2019 – The RS200 Wireless Loudspeaker System is the next generation home audio wireless speaker. Designed for a modern streaming lifestyle, it comes packed with virtually everything you need to enjoy music streamed from your handheld devices, digital music stored online or a local computer, or played from legacy audio sources. Even connect it to your TV for better sound.
The RS200 offers 650 Watts of total power that is delivered to 8 drivers consisting of two 4” x 6” woofers, four 2” midranges and two ¾” tweeters. In addition, a subwoofer output is included to connect an external powered subwoofer to further enhance low frequencies. As the RS200 can be placed in a variety of locations with unique sonic characteristics, a 3-position EQ switch allows you to set the EQ based on your room and listening preferences.
The RS200 comes loaded with several streaming options. It features Apple® AirPlay® 2; Bluetooth® 5.0 with support for AAC, Qualcomm® aptX™ HD for hi res playback and Qualcomm aptX Low Latency for improved audio transmission speed to deliver sound in sync with visual media; DTS Play-Fi® whole-home wireless audio; and DLNA support.
For non-streaming applications, it has an audio-only HDMI input to connect 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 theater sound, connect a pair of our Play-Fi compatible RS100 Wireless Speakers (sold separately) to use as surround speakers.
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. You 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.
