The RS100 Wireless Speaker from McIntosh allows you to easily add streaming music capabilities to virtually any room. RS100 features DTS Play-Fi® technology, giving you the freedom and flexibility to wirelessly play music on your mobile devices over your existing Wi-Fi network. Simply connect RS100 to your Wi-Fi network, install the Play-Fi Apple or Android mobile app or Windows desktop app, and you’re ready to stream your music. RS100 is a great first piece to introduce yourself to McIntosh’s legendary sound quality and performance standards (standards not found in any other Play-Fi device except McIntosh's MB50 Streaming Audio Player).

A single RS100 is all that is needed to start building your wireless speaker system; more can be added over time to expand your system. Up to 16 speakers can be connected to a single Wi-Fi network—enough for stereo playback in 8 separate rooms. With the Play-Fi app installed on all your devices, each device can stream different music to each room, giving all family members or guests control over what they play in their individual rooms. Besides accessing your personal music library, the available apps have built-in support for many leading online streaming services. including Amazon Prime Music, Deezer, KKBox, Pandora®, QQMusic, Rhapsody®, SiriusXM®, Songza, Spotify®, and TIDAL (subject to change), letting you enjoy all your streaming music on your RS100.
Not limited to just streaming, RS100 is flexible thanks to its auxiliary input that allows it to be used in non-streaming setups; it can quickly be switched back and forth between the two inputs to accommodate your listening preference. A subwoofer output is included along with a USB port for firmware updates. Two internal Wi-Fi antennas help ensure a strong network connection for smooth playback; it can also be hardwired to your network via a USB-to-Ethernet adapter (not included).
"The power is immense yet open and controlled. The clarity is spot-on. The level of bass is where it ought to be, and the balance between the top frequencies and the bottom is unbelievably sweet." - T3 Magazine
"The RS100 not only features McIntosh's signature design, but it also inherits the full sound quality of its hi-end audio devices, on a smaller scale." - Stereo Channel
A big advantage of DTS Play-Fi compared to many other streaming options is that with its Critical Listening mode, native playback of up to 24-bit/192kHz high-resolution files is available with no down-sampling as of January 2017 (update your Play-Fi app to the latest version to utilize this feature). Many common audio formats are compatible with the RS100, including .mp3, .m4a, .flac, and .wav files. DLNA is also supported.
Sounds "spacious, well-rounded and natural." - The Wall Street Journal
RS100 is McIntosh's first speaker to feature a blue meter and knobs. It incorporates many classic design cues from McIntosh's amplifiers and preamplifiers to produce a wireless speaker that is unmistakably McIntosh. An easy-to-remove magnetically attached grille trimmed with brushed aluminum end caps completes the timeless look.
