VAIL Amp Puts Alexa In Architectural Speakers

Californian architectural audio manufacturer Vanguard Dynamics has announced a new in-wall amplifier, allowing full Amazon Echo integration into an existing architectural speaker system.

The VAIL (Voice Artificial Intelligence Link) amp features a dock for the second generation Echo Dot and is designed to be flush installed at the level of a regular light switch, with a 60 watt amplifier powering up to four in-ceiling, in-wall, or cabinet speakers.

The VAIL Amp is distributed in Australia by Canohm, with further information and stockist details available here.

The Amp retails for $499, while a system including a pair of in-ceiling speakers is available for $799.

The amp provides a solution for users wishing to integrate Amazon’s Alexa virtual assistant into their existing sound systems, providing multi-room support and whole house voice control without the need for a full overhaul or upgrade.

An accompanying wall plate provides connections for power, secondary inputs, and a subwoofer output.
