This handy amp can stand on its own for a single-room installation, or it can be part of an extensive multi-room system with additional MBX-AMPs, MBX-PRE preamplifiers, and Russound MCA Series controllers.

Wireless streaming

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are built-in for convenient access to streaming sources. Chromecast built-in lets you stream straight from the cloud with compatible mobile apps. Apple® AirPlay® enables streaming music from an iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch®, or computer running iTunes®.

Remote control

The MBX-AMP features browser-based configuration, and it can be controlled with your Apple or Android™ mobile device via the MyRussound app. Russound's XTSPlus in-wall touchscreen offers a sleek way to control the system, and display artist, title, and track information while you listen. And if you've connected your TV as a source, the MBX-AMP can learn your existing TV remote's volume and mute commands.
