Controller Streamer Amplifier X5

The Russound XStream™ X5 is the first of its kind room-by-room distributed audio system. Unlike its hard-wired predecessors, the X5 is a certified WiFi device that wirelessly synchronizes audio across all X5-powered rooms. It’s designed to be subtle, unobtrusive and blend easy into any décor. Removable side panels reveal mounting brackets so you can easily mount and hide the unit behind furniture, TV displays or in a closet. The X5 puts your music up front and keeps the hardware out of the way.

Every room in your home is unique, and the X5 is the only product capable of offering customized options for each room. The back panel of the X5 features a number of wired connections, offering customized options to bring audio into each room of your home. The X5 is a streamer, an amplifier and a room controller all in one box-- and much more. The X5 is the first to be built on an all-digital platform. Digital inputs, digital streaming content, digital amplification at 50w per channel, and a high-end DAC deliver better audio performance. Designed for custom installation professionals, the X5 can change the way you approach distributed audio.

Russound was the first multi-room audio company to embrace Apple™ Airplay™ and offer popular on-board streaming services. Stream your audio content to the X5 and listen to it throughout your home. The X5 also supports Bluetooth streaming through an optional external receiver, the BTC-1X. The external Bluetooth option allows you to locate the receiver for maximum reception and performance, unlike most products that can be limited by internal Bluetooth reception capabilities.

Unlike other streaming solutions, the X5 offers real control, better performance and superior content. X5 is the only single room audio streamer, amplifier and controller with a keypad connection that offers full control of each room of audio. Russound has three different keypad options for the X5:

  • The TS3 touchscreen
  • The MDK-C6 multi-line display keypad
  • The SLK-1 single-line display keypad

Additionally, every X5 zone can be controlled by the My Russound App, available for iOS and Android devices. The app and keypad can be configured to control other AV devices connected to X5. Every X5 has an IR database with universal and learning commands to control other AV devices. The X5 can also be controlled by other home automation systems through RIO, our open IP protocol. The power to control your musical universe, right there in your hands.

The XStream™ X5 offers several benefits for the installer: Wireless connectivity simplifies installation because no centralized wiring is needed in the home. All connections between X5 products are wireless through standard 802.11 WiFi or wired Ethernet connections, making the X5 an excellent solution for retrofit and preexisting homes. And if you’re familiar with current Russound systems, there are no new software programs to learn; our X5 unit uses the same programming tools used with our C-series systems. The X5 also uses the same keypads and app for control as our C-Series system. Everything from remotes, to the speakers, amplifiers and controllers can be hidden in each room, removing the AV clutter. And with the X5, you can personalize the user experience in each room while the operation and control is consistent throughout the system.
