AudioControl’s multi-award-winning Director Series DSP amplifiers, Concert Series AV receivers and Maestro Series preamplifiers now compatible with the Josh.ai platform, enabling integrators to deliver the ease of voice control for premium home entertainment systems.

AudioControl, makers of innovative high-performance audio solutions for the residential, commercial and automotive markets has announced a collaboration with Josh.ai, enabling users to effortlessly control their AudioControl-powered entertainment systems utilizing Josh.ai’s natural language and privacy-focused voice automation technology. Features of the integration include auto-discovery of AudioControl products, power toggling, volume and mute control, input switching, single-source to multi-zone routing and multi-source to multi-zone routing.

As part of the Josh.ai distributed AV workflow, AudioControl’s Director Series amplifiers, home theater Concert AV receivers and Maestro preamp/processors will auto-populate within the Josh.ai web portal for configuration once connected to the same network, making setup highly intuitive for integrators. Because AudioControl Director Series amplifiers have matrixing capabilities, users will have the ability to leverage the Josh.ai app or voice commands to direct specific programming to any zone at their preferred volume level. Integrators can assign multiple input sources to all applicable AudioControl models, creating the ultimate home cinema and multi-zone home entertainment systems. The Josh.ai platform is able to search for content through all available streaming services (using a compatible source) and manage volume commands for individual or grouped output zones, providing users with the freedom to enjoy their favorite programming anywhere in the home. As an example, homeowners can say “OK Josh, listen to Journey in the dining room, patio, and kitchen and turn it to 30 percent.”
