Autonomic Controls Mirage Audio System

MSRP: $8,350.00

The Mirage Audio System is a whole-home audio distribution system that gives you the world of music at your fingertips. Enjoy music you own along with convenient access to your favorite streaming services, such as Pandora, Rhapsody, Spotify, Last.fm, SiriusXM and TuneIn Radio, or any music service supported on your iOS device with Airplay.

Autonomic’s exclusive TuneBridge™ technology blurs the line between your online services and music you own. Create mixed queues consisting of songs from Rhapsody, Spotify, and your local library, and even save that as a playlist. When you hear a song you like while listening to your music or streaming services, TuneBridge can instantly queue up the entire album with Rhapsody or Spotify, or kick off a custom Pandora radio station with similar music for you to discover.

The Mirage Audio System is intuitively controlled using the devices you know and love, including iOS, Android, and any web-enabled device. Advanced queue management in the Mirage Media Controller allows you to edit queues and re-order music at will. Zone grouping allows you to tie in multiple zones with the push of a button or bring in all zones for party mode. Independent or group volume allows you to manage the volume level within a specific zone or group.

For in-room control, the simple and elegant KP-1 provides local control of volume, source, and power. The more advanced KP-iOS provides a beautiful iOS-based touch screen solution for more active areas of the home, adding full library browsing capabilities with rich meta-data and album covers.

The Mirage Audio System also works seamlessly with all of the popular automation systems so if you’re looking to upgrade your home automation or add audio distribution the Mirage Audio System will suit all of your needs.

Simply add speakers and you are ready to enjoy party music on the deck while your friends stream “easy listening” in the kitchen—each with independent control of volume and music sources.

Album artwork shows up in brilliant high resolution thanks to Gracenote, and Autonomic’s proprietary TuneBridge technology enables users to discover new music and create mixed queues from both personal content and streaming music services. The MAS-8 offers listeners access the most popular streaming music with a wide variety of content available, and all easily controlled using the Mirage Media Controller app for iOS or Android devices accessible through the Apple App Store, Amazon AppStore or Google Play Store.
