Each Linksys by Cisco Wireless Home Audio component has been designed with your lifestyle in mind. Whether you live in a studio apartment or 5,000 square foot home, get the components and configure a system that’s right for you. How Do We Do It? Some audio streaming systems clip audio waveforms. The Linksys by Cisco Wireless Home Audio system preserves the waveform for a rich playback experience. Cisco, the world’s leader in networking technology, applied its years of knowledge and expertise to develop an amazing lossless digital audio delivery solution that preserves the full depth and richness of the recording, as originally intended by the artist. Through distributed decoding technology, each Wireless Home Audio player receives the unmodified audio source material without any trans-coding or compression. The audio is then reproduced by one or more players, synchronized to within microseconds in case of multiple players, without any of the compression and echo artifacts so often evident in other wireless audio systems. All of this means crystal clear music, exactly as recorded, anywhere in your home. Now, just because we’re experts at networking there’s no reason you need to be. Each Linksys by Cisco Wireless Home Audio product includes EasyLink Advisor setup wizard to get your system up and running. We even include a Windows-based application if you want to manage your music experience from your PC. The Conductor / Wireless-N Digital Music Center (model #DMC350 – Available Spring 2009) The Conductor is a complete, portable wireless music system all by itself. Place it in the kitchen while you prepare that special recipe. Move it to the dining room when your guests sit down to dinner. Or plug it in outside on the deck to enjoy the evening stars with your favorite music selections. The Conductor accesses digital music libraries on your computer, on a networked hard drive, from Linksys by Cisco Media Hub, or from the Internet because it’s wirelessly connected to your Wireless-N router. There are three ways to control the Conductor. Select a song or queue up a playlist simply by touching the icons displayed on its color LCD screen, control it with the handy IR (infrared) remote control that comes with it or with the Controller (see below). The Conductor features a 50-watt integrated amplifier that drives its built-in speakers. It even has a built-in CD player, too. Director / Wireless-N Music Player with Integrated Amplifier (model #DMC250) The Player / Wireless-N Music Extender The Director, like the Conductor, is also a Wireless-N music player that accesses the digital music libraries on your computer, on a networked hard drive, or from the Internet. The Director can connect to the Linksys by Cisco Stereo Speakers or to any powered or passive speakers you own. The Director also has a 50-watt integrated amplifier, so it’s even capable of efficiently delivering rich, full sound to the tower speakers you may have in your home theater system. The Director also comes with an IR remote control and like the Conductor, can also be controlled from another part of the house with the Controller. The Director is equally at home on a bookshelf in your den, in the master bedroom, or connected to your home theater system.

The Player is a Wireless-N music extender and is the easiest way to bring more of your digital or Internet music to more rooms in your home.
