Welcome Multi-room Audio with the NCP-302, Featuring New Generation Casting Platforms and Mirroring from Master Audio ComponentsPress Release dated: 22 Feb 2017
Multi-room audio enriched with limitless and accessible music is now a reality as Onkyo unveils its NCP-302 Wireless Audio System, a standalone speaker that can link with other units and compatible Onkyo master components, such as AVRs, to mirror home entertainment sources around the home over FireConnect™ powered by Blackfire*1.
FireConnect™, a network protocol based on Blackfire and provided by Blackfire Research, USA, operates over 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi® and offers 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz sampling.
The NCP-302 supports a variety of music streaming and internet radio services, such as Spotify®, TIDAL, Deezer, and TuneIn*2, together with audio files stored on mobile or media server inside the Onkyo Controller application*3.
With Chromecast built-in*4, support for the Spotify® Connect app, and DTS Play-Fi®*4 technology, along with Bluetooth® wireless technology, the NCP-302 can be played to separately or grouped with other units using Onkyo Controller.
Chromecast built-in allows users to cast any music from smartphone, laptop, or PC to speaker or speaker network with ease. Control playback with regular audio apps for iPhone, iPad, Android™ phone or tablet, Mac® or Windows® laptop, or Chromebook™ with support for Google Play Music included.
NCP-302 speakers can also mirror network music playing through a master component as well as sources input via analog audio terminals*5, including vinyl records, CDs, and cassettes.
Onkyo Controller offers source selection and playback management for individual or multiple speakers within a single intuitive interface. Sound follows as the listener moves through their day, keeping them company and adding atmosphere when entertaining friends and family.
The control app can assign the listener’s preferred sources to NCP-302 speakers and save them for later recall. Adding or dropping speakers, changing music, or adjusting volume involves a swipe or tap on the touchscreen.
Product quality is evident in the solid MDF enclosure housing two 77 mm woofers and a 26 mm balanced-dome tweeter. The speaker is tuned for pleasant, non-fatiguing sound. Like the woodgrain or black hairlined finishes, physical controls are minimalist to suit any interior design.
With NCP-302s and a FireConnect™-ready master component in the main living space, families can experience Onkyo’s Next Generation Network Audio: an ecosystem of technologies that coalesce in smartphones to deliver audio anywhere, any time.
Next Generation Network Audio grows with the user, adapting to changing listening habits. It delivers what’s important: enjoyment of sound, enjoyment of control, and enjoyment of life.
