  • German audio manufacturer, Raumfeld, has announced its expanded streaming services portfolio with Google Cast for audio and SoundCloud. SoundCloud services will be available alongside Spotify, TIDAL, TuneIn and Last.fm when their new products hit the shelves early in 2016.
    Google Cast for audio will also allow people to stream popular apps and music services like Pandora and iHeart Radio directly to Raumfeld speakers with a touch of a button.

    According to Raumfeld, when shopping for streaming speakers, two features rise to the top of the buyer’s wish list: Sound quality and the range of content supported by the system. With the adoption of Google Cast for audio, the German streaming brand will soon complement its sound quality with even more options: practically every popular streaming service will be supported for instant playback on all Raumfeld devices. As an added bonus, streaming isn’t restricted to mobile devices anymore, but now you can stream your favourite apps directly to the Raumfeld system from PCs and Macs in addition to mobile devices, using the Chrome browser.

    Raumfeld prides itself on manufacturing streaming speakers that sound as good as traditional premium hi-fi speakers,” explained Max Boit, general manager at Raumfeld. “The integration of Google Cast allows us to offer the same hi-fi sound quality and the convenience of multi-room from a vastly expanded range of sources.”

    In addition to the Google Cast for audio addition, SoundCloud, the world’s leading social sound platform, provides access to an expansive music library that continues to grow. Music services such as Spotify, TIDAL as well as private collections made available on home networks are some of the streaming options currently available on the Raumfeld multi-room system. All playback can be controlled via the free Raumfeld app for Android and iOS. Google Cast will expand this offering with many Cast-enabled apps, a steadily growing list that already includes favourites like Deezer, Tune In or Google Play Music.

    Presumably they will release the details of the products, themselves, in short order.
