British wireless HiFi start-up Musaic has announced that it has been named a 2016 CES Innovation Awards Honoree. Musaic’s new PRO-MZP Professional Install Zone Player, due for release in 2016, has been recognised in the Home Audio/Video Components and Accessories category. The prestigious awards are judged by a panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honour outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products. Last year Musaic was named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree in the same category for its wireless Music Players, now available in the UK.

The PRO-MZP packages all the functionality from the start-up’s consumer wireless HiFi system, including compatibility with lighting systems and smart home features, into a form factor suitable for custom install. The PRO-MZP can be rack mounted, mounted in structured wiring cabinets or placed in a ceiling void, and is controlled via Musaic’s intuitive apps for iOS and Android. It offers high-resolution, high quality audio playback of music from phones and tablets, NAS drives and UPnP/DLNA servers as well as streaming services including Spotify, and access to more than 20,000 internet radio stations. CEO and Founder Matthew Bramble said: “We’re thrilled to be a CES Innovation Awards Honoree for the second year running – we’re really excited about bringing an innovative product to the custom install market in 2016. With this product we wanted to bring the convenience of wireless multi-room audio to custom install. The PRO-MZP offers high-resolution, exceptional quality audio playback combined with smart home and Internet of Things features in dedicated product specifically created for professional installers. The flexible architecture of the PRO-MZP means that once installed it can continue to evolve and open up new opportunities in the home and grow with the customer as their home gets smarter.” The Musaic PRO-MZP Professional Installation Zone Player will be available in 2016. www.musaic.com
