*9 TE – exactly the same dimensions as the Miniserver. 

Extremely versatile,
impressively scalable

The Audioserver can be expanded with up to 10 Stereo Extensions or 20 amplifier outputs via our specially developed Tree Turbo interface. For larger installations, you can use several Audioservers on the same network – giving you unparalleled levels of expandability.

Complete configuration within Loxone Config

The newly developed Audio Player Function Block allows simple configuration of an intelligent audio system. Whether it’s for a smart home, commercial premises or a custom application, you can complete the entire audio configuration with just a few clicks.

Digital grouping of outputs

With a simple drag-and-drop, you can assign any number of amplifier outputs to an Audio Player within Loxone Config and adapt them at later down the line if necessary. This makes configuring larger rooms especially easy. With the Audioserver the physical wiring now plays a diminished role.

Note: In our example, all room have been fitted with several speakers.

Fixed Audio
Groups

With the Audio Player Group Fixed Function Block you can combine two or more Audio Players in Loxone Config to create a fixed audio grouping. When in a fixed grouping you can still adjust the volume of each Audio Player individually. 

Rich and clear sound
for all speaker types

The Audioserver is not a speaker – it’s the intelligent power behind your wired speakers. When combined with high-quality speakers the Audioserver forms the basis for rich and clear sound. Whether it’s relaxing background music or a powerful party playlist – the Audioserver has got you covered.

When combined with Loxone Speakers, the Audioserver provides a solution which integrates into any building seamlessly.

FAQs

How long will the Music Server be supported for?

The Music Server will continue to provide its full range of functionality – even in future versions of Loxone Config. 

Does the Audioserver work with all variations of the Miniserver?

Yes. The Audioserver is compatible for use with all variations of the Loxone Miniserver.

Which version of Loxone Config is needed to run the Audioserver?

The Audioserver will be supported from Loxone Config V11.1 onwards. Version 11.1 is available free of charge for all variants of the Miniserver.

I recently purchased a Music Server. Can I exchange it?

We’d kindly point you to our Terms & Conditions page

Can speakers be connected to the Audioserver via UPnP or DNLA?

The Audioserver does not support speakers that are connected via the UPnP or DNLA network streaming protocols. This is because sustainable and maintenance-free operation is not guaranteed with these interfaces.

What power supply should be used for the Audioserver and the Stereo Extension?

We recommend supplying the Audioserver and the Stereo Extensions with their own power supplies. For the Audioserver, we’d recommend to providing it with a minimum of 72W, for the Stereo Extension a minimum of 36W.

Can the Audioserver and the Stereo Extension be installed in a distribution board with the Miniserver and other components?

The Audioserver and the Stereo Extension are designed to be DIN-rail mounted. To ensure optimum heat dissipation, they both must be installed horizontally in the distribution board. In addition, the audio components should be positioned in the upper area of the cabinet. In order to avoid interference on the speaker lines, we recommend that they are kept separate from other wires. Appropriate wiring regulations should also be observed.

What can cause connection interruptions when streaming via AirPlay?

First, check the Wi-Fi connection of all AirPlay devices.
