Atlantic Technology has added the capability of hands-free voice control by Amazon Alexa to their Gatecrasher1 wireless multi-room 2.1 stereo table-top audio systems as part of the “Works With Alexa” capability, which wirelessly connects any Alexa-enabled device to control and play through Gatecrasher1. This makes Gatecrasher1 easy to operate with all Alexa-enabled devices such as the Echo Flex, Echo Dot, Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Studio, Echo Show as well as other brands of Alexa-enabled devices.
Gatecrasher1 is a premium Hi-Res multi-room wireless speaker that features 2.4/5 GHz dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with aptX wireless capability, a Priority Auto Sensing 3.5mm analog input, and DLNA connectivity.
Gatecrasher1 and its free app make possible free streaming from more than 20,000 internet radio stations and connectivity to a variety of popular subscription streaming services including Spotify Connect, as well as Hi-Res streaming services Tidal, Qobuz, and Deezer.
Gatecrasher1 comes in a premium non-resonant cabinet made like a quality bookshelf speaker and is available in two furniture finishes. This 2.1 stereo system offers a 3-way array of speakers including a woofer with passive radiator and dual mid-range and tweeter drivers for solid deep bass and clear, detailed, musical hi-fidelity audio.
Existing Gatecrasher1 owners can add the Works with Alexa capability for free by first checking the Gatecrasher app that their speaker software and the app are updated to the latest versions. Set-up with Alexa is accomplished by using free downloadable directions from Atlantic Technology to add the specified free Alexa Skill to the Alexa-enabled device through its Alexa app.
Once the new Alexa Skill is enabled, Gatecrasher1 users have the option of using hands-free voice commands to play a favorite internet radio station, make a musical selection from a subscribed music streaming service, and control volume, mute audio, pause, play, forward or back-up through songs and playlists.
Gatecrasher1 is available to purchase now from Atlantic Technology at the Atlantic Technology online store and carries an MSRP of $499.
