100% music with zero clutter. Control of the system is via a dedicated iOS / Android app or with built-in integrated control panels and keypads wired throughout your home.

This 'wired for wireless' system brings reliability with zero drop outs or quality issues that may occur with wireless systems such as Sonos. The wireless network in your home is used for control, via the S7 app, but not to distribute the audio.

What Systemline 7 equipment do I need?

At the heart of a systemline 7 multi-room audio system is a NetServer, this is then digitally paired with a NetAmp via a simple USB cable. Each NetAmp can serve 2 zones with high quality audio from stored CDs or streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer, TuneIn, BBC IPlayer. 

Speaker cables then run out to speakers in each zone, either installed, wall mounted or freestanding speakers. Optionally a CAT5/6 data cable runs out to each zone in which you wish to install a wall mounted keypad. This graphic shows Systemline 7 with one zone in its simplest form. Each NetAmp is equipped for 2 zones.

Systemline NetConnect - Another Option?

The Systemline NetConnect Network Amplifier can be used to create a Systemline 7 music zone, This is a compact amplifier that can be located and powered remotely. It gives music streaming services such as Spotify Connect & Deezer as sources along with BBC iPlayer. Control is entirely by the S7 app as keypads are not an option with these units. The NetConnect amplifier can be connected to a USB drive and play music from MP3 or FLAC files. It does not have the option for inputs from other sources or TV, if this is a requirement use the NetAmp & NetServer combos. 

Optional Systemline 7 Upgrades

  • Wall Keypads - although not a requirement they are ideal if an ipad / iphone is not available
  • Wall Panels - Integrating an ipad into a wall and maintaining charge level for system control whenever required
  • Systemline 4 zone enclosure - easy wall mounting of control hub units
