roksponsmallCary Audio has introduced the first product of the new Lifestyle Series, the AiOS (All-in-One-System). Cary say that ‘AiOS is a new kind of music system for a new generation.

‘What does that mean? Simply put, music lovers and audiophiles alike have many more choices today when it comes to how they listen to music. As a music system with 150 watts of Class AB power, AiOS combines sources and inputs designed around this new age.  Connect AiOS to your home network (Wi-Fi or Ethernet) and stream all of your digital music stored on your networked computer(s) or NAS drive(s) with simple plug N play UPnP, DLNA, and SMB connectivity. Also, available through your home network connection are integrated internet music streaming services, Spotify, TIDAL, and others being added. For those that may find a home network connection too intimidating, AiOS allows you to insert a SD Card into the front SD Slot. You can also use a USB flash drive or USB hard drive loaded with digital music files directly to AiOS’ three USB-A inputs, all without a computer or network connection for direct playback! How about Bluetooth? Today, Bluetooth is ubiquitous and AiOS can certainly connect to your smartphone or tablet using the latest Qualcomm aptX© Bluetooth technology. However, AiOS has an extra trick up its sleeve. AiOS can SEND any of its selected sources to Bluetooth enabled headphones or speakers for a completely wireless music system.

Cary also say that AiOS is ‘visually transformative’. With the touch of a button, AiOS can change its backlit keys/buttons and centre LCD display (together or individually) to six different pre-set colours including one custom colour pre-set, or adjust any colour as you see fit within the entire colour spectrum. AiOS comes with aluminium Gunmetal Grey chassis and side panels and AiOS offers five additional side panel colour options. Finally, AiOS includes multiple analogue and digital inputs and outputs, including subwoofer output, preamplifier output, and more.

The AiOS comes with standard Gunmetal Grey side panels. Spring Green, Deep Plum, Cary Blue, Candy Red, and Champagne Gold side panels are sold separately.
