Intellegg Uses Phone Lines for Moxivo Multiroom Audio
The option can create a multiroom audio system using something readily available in the home.
April 14, 2014 by Rachel Cericola

We’ve seeing a lot of wireless multiroom audio options. However, one company is doing something different using wires in the home—phone wires.

Intellegg recently launched Moxivo, a new option that uses your home’s phone lines to create a multiroom audio system using any and/or all of your existing speakers.

Now, it’s important to know that if you’re using Moxivo, you can’t use those landlines. Apparently, this setup is for people that have cut the cord, without actually cutting the cables. The company says that you also can’t use the wires for fax or DSL services.

Moxivo is basically a bunch of cables that can connect your existing speakers to any phone jack. However, there are four Moxivo options available to fit just about any application.

Cables A, B and C are for analog systems, with cable D allowing digital sources to rock throughout the house. You’re going to need one cable per source. It’s also important to note that cables A, B and C can be combined into one system. However, none of those options are compatible with cable D.

Once the Moxivo system is set up, users can play music from a computer and control the system using a smartphone and/or tablet and a free app like Retune or Remote. 

Intellegg already launched a successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year. However, they are looking to snag additional customers by launching another crowdfunding campaign. This time, you’ll need to head over to Indiegogo and pledge a minimum of $22, which will cover two Moxivo cables and shipping costs.

The campaign will end on May 10, 2014. From there, Intellegg will immediately start shipping the first orders, with the rest coming by the end of June.
