External audio devices

Some trivum devices have one ore more audio inputs (analog and/or digital). At these you can connect external audio sources like CD/MP3 player, TV etc.

So you can play your music in all zones of your trivum multiroom system -  the music playback is not limited to the trivum devices zone, where the external audio source is connected with.

Connect external audio devices

AudioBox

  • Use an audio cable with a 3.5 mm stereo plug at one end to connect your audio device to the Line-In of the AudioBox
  • Use an optical TOSLINK cable to connect your audio device to the Optical-In of the AudioBox

FLEX devices

  • Use standard RCA cables to connect your audio device to a trivum FLEX device

Notice: length of cable

Play external audio devices

If an external audio source is connected to your trivum device, you can playback the music in the whole trivum multiroom system.

  1. Click/Press on the TouchPad resp. on the a WebVisu on Analog In or Digital In, to select the appropriate input
  2. Start playback on the external audio device

InStreamer

Another way to connect an external audio source is the trivum InStreamer. If an trivum InStreamer is connected to the local network, he is automatically recognized by all other trivum master devices and makes the external audio source, which is connected to him, available.

Setting up the InStreamer

Before setting up the InStreamer in MusicCenter V9, check the following:

  • Make sure that the trivum InStreamer and the trivum master device are on the same network
  • Make sure that an functioning audio device is connected to the trivum InStreamer
  • Make sure that the trivum InStreamer is connected to the power supply with the originally adapter.
  1. Open the WebConfig (How does it work?)
  2. Click on InStreamers → Expand this system and add a new InStreamer
  3. Select on e of the available InStreamer
    → the InStreamer is displayed in the List of all used InStreamers
    (refresh the WebConfig view, if "Not connected" is displayed)
  4. Click on the added InStreamer in the List of all used InStreamers
  5. Enable Show as action

→ After a moment, the InStreamer is available as another audio source and will be displayed in the source selection area on the TouchPad/WebVisu.

  1. Click/Press on the TouchPad resp. the WebVisu on InStreamer, to select the appropriate audio source
