It's been a while since we checked in with Qsonix
, but the company has kept right on with its high end music management systems, unveiling the Q205 and Q10 whole home audio servers last year. Of course, if you're spending north of $6k on a whole home audio solution, fixed touch control screens
are nice but the new iPad remote app is more likely to provide the wow factor customers expect. Sure you could just control the music from a computer or iPhone, but in this market a marriage of the company's touch interface with the iPad's larger form factor is much more ideal. It'll find any Qsonix systems on the home network going back to the Q100 models (provided they're running version 3.4 of the firmware or higher.) Check the press release after the break or just snag the Qsonix Remote Pro from iTunes at the link. It's courteously available at the low price of "free," but we're betting that if you've got the iPad and the scratch for one of these, you could get up to some serious AirPlay
synced shenanigans for even less.
