5. Quick startup guide
The device may be used for installations in dry locations.
1. Connect your speakers(4-8 Ohms) to the Streaming Player’s loudspeakers outputs
2. Connect Ethernet cable to LAN port (make sure the cable is interconnected with your
local network)
3. Plug USB drive with music files in MP3, WAV, AAC, WMA, FLAC.
4. Connect power supply to Streaming Player (power supply’s red pole to +24V, black –
GND.
5. To check if the wiring is done well, you can run any music file on your iPhone/iPOD and
Share it to play on remote Airplay device (amatilinea).
6. Streaming Player is setup as DHCP-client. It uses Zero-config utility is called "Bonjour"
by Apple which enables automatic discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP
networks. iPod, iPhone have this utility pre-installed. For iPad use utility called
Discovery (the server will be discovered in the service ROAP). On Windows 7 computer
you can see the Player as Network share with name amatilinea, right click on it,
Properties and you will see its IP address. Or you can simply check your DHCP server’s
lease list to find assigned IP to Streaming Player. More see here:
http://openrb.com/discover-ip-of-logic-machine-or-streaming-player/
7. Enter Streaming Player’s home page by typing IP address in your web browser.
8. DLNA/UPnP/Airplay services are enabled by default in the Streaming Player’s Quick
setup
9. Add additional music sources if any in the Streaming Player’s Quick setup Services FTP mountpoints
10. Depending on count of music files the device will update its local database in Audio
Player menu and you can start playing songs there
11. Connect by remote user interface (also called digital media controllers) from
iPOD/iPhone/iPAD (MPoD/MPaD or any UPnP controller apps available as freeware at
App Store like Kinsky), Android-based phones (Droid MPD, Mupeace), PC (Ario,
Kinsky). Choose the server (amatilinea or by IP) and start making your playlists,
controlling the music etc. Update player’s database with Update Database command
from your remote controller. It might take some time to do initial database update.
12. Map music control functions to KNX in System config Network KNX Audio control
menu. Default login and password to access Network config is admin / admin
13. Please note that you have to use external KNX IP Router (e.g. Logic Machine 3) to
access the KNX TP, as Streaming Player supports only KNXnet/IP (TP is not used due to
sound quality distortions).
6. Amati.linea WEB-based configuration
To discover IP address of the player, it has built-in zeroconf utility by default, so using the
following applications you can find out the IP:
• Windows PC – ServiceBrowser
• Linux PC – Avahi
• Android – ZeroConf Browser
• iOS – Discovery
For more info please see here: http://openrb.com/discover-ip-of-logic-machine-or-streamingplayer/
Using IP assigned to Streaming Player, connect using web browser.
