Freedom in Simplicity

The Matrix88 offers a wide array of analog and digital inputs, including integrated Wi-Fi (AirPlay, Spotify Connect, DLNA) streaming options. Featuring a dedicated Wi-Fi channel, the Matrix88 allows you to stream your favorite music directly from your preferred streaming service through AirPlay, Spotify Connect, and DLNA. With access to streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, TIDAL, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn, the musical world is in your control. (Additional hardware and or paid subscription may be required for Amazon Music, and other streaming services if you are using Android devices.)

Analog input options, including four stereo RCA, seven 3.5 mm, and two optical connections, ensure you can use virtually any input source from TVs to media players and additional Bluetooth adapters. The output flexibility that the Matrix88 provides lets you integrate the Matrix88 into an existing design.

Control your entire audio system through the Matrio™ by connecting a Matrix88 to an existing whole house or commercial amplifier. You can add a Matrix88 to any 12-channel amplifier, a series of amplifiers, or even to a 70V amplifier system with ease. Link multiple Matrix88 units to your network in order to gain full control with the Matrio™ app.

Suppose you have more than eight zones that need audio. In that case, this expansion capability ensures you never run out of audio options. For ease of installation, the Matrix88 is able to connect to your network wirelessly or through the ethernet port in the rear of the unit and for maximum level of controllability, an RS-232 port in the back allows external control and automation systems to manage the Matrix88 guaranteeing complete integration.
