Availability date: 01/01/2016
When setting up a streaming system – whether for one room or a whole house – you can have great sound as well as versatility: the compact MRX-3 with its two 77mm bass-midrange speakers and the full-fledged 28mm tweeter easily fills the room with music. There is no need to be concerned whether your favourites come from a streaming service like Spotify or Tidal, are stored on a local server or on your mobile phone or tablet – regardless of the origins, format and storage location, your sound always finds the best way to the MRX-3 that supports all relevant streaming standards with Chromecast built-in and PlayFi. In short: The MRX-3 adapts to the preferences of its user instead of forcing the application of certain methods or standards. Thanks to FireConnect™, the MRX-3 can even access sources located in other rooms – such as a record player or sound from a television – if these are connected to a FireConnect™-compatible device. Pioneer has a large selection of these in its product range and other brands will be offering FireConnect™ in the near future if they are not already doing so. One or more MRX-3 units as well as other Pioneer streaming products of the latest generation are controlled via the Pioneer Remote App for iOS and Android. Buttons are located directly on the device for frequently used functions such as volume, skip or pause.
Enjoy smooth operation using your beloved device. With the free Pioneer Remote app, you can use your iPad/iPhone/ iPod touch or Android device such as a smartphone for operating the wireless speaker, or play back tunes stored on your smartphone. You can also select internet radio stations, and playback songs from your media server.
This product supports FireConnect™ powered by Blackfire Research. FireConnect is a stable wireless protocol that mirrors any audio source connected to a compatible audio product in your main room - from vinyl to streaming audio - on the MRX wireless speaker in another room.
This product has Chromecast built-in, so you can use your mobile device to stream music, radio, or podcasts to your speaker. You can control the audio from anywhere in the house using Chromecast-enabled apps running on your personal device - iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, Mac and Windows laptop, and Chromebook.
Enjoy a limitless flow of music, sports, talk, and news entertainment from internet radio stations and online music services, including Spotify, TuneIn, TIDAL, and Deezer.
Enjoy network features such as audio streaming via wireless LAN connection. The built-in Wi-Fi is dual band, supporting both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency channels. By using the 5 GHz band, you can enjoy steady and uninterrupted streaming of audio files.
With Bluetooth Wireless Technology (ver. 4.1+LE), you can easily stream songs from compatible devices. This product features A2DP/ AVRCP profiles, with support for SBC/AAC codecs.
