Whole House Audio Using Amazon Echos
Multiroom audio is a big thing, Sonos clearly leads the way but Amazon with their Echo and the lovely Alexa are inevitably in the mix. Now, thanks to an update from Amazon, you can go much of the way to achieving that using iTunes. I won’t try to summarise a somewhat fiddly process, the details can be found here:-
Despite the power and attraction of the Echo range this still leaves other music management systems trailing what can be done via Sonos. You can’t use iTunes to play different tracks in each room / zone of your house, at least as yet.
I notice the “current” Echo models are sold out on the US Amazon site which could mean there’s a new Echo on the way. Perhaps that will have more functionality in the area of whole home audio.
