    Multiroom update Run 2 is now in separate rooms. One linked to the large stereo and the other to a B & O Beoplay S3 in the bedroom. Created a group for my two Chromecast Audio in the Chromecast app. Then, just select the group in Spotify and play. Very easy setup. Ridiculous money to give Spotify Connect to your old active speakers, mobile speakers, stereo or DAC (requires optical input of the DAC and a mini-Toslink cable http://www.prisjakt.nu/kategori.php?&b=s262975854) . 3.5mm output is both a stereo output and an optical output. Absolutely amazing now that it does not resample everything to 48KHz longer, thanks to the updated firmware. My Chord Mojo says 44.1KHz when I run Spotify. The low price makes you you can buy any portable speakers and get to the multiroom audio for coffee money. Powered via your mobile or tablet. And if you drive with an Ethernet cable instead of wifi so order Ethernet adapter directly from Google 169kr include shipping https://store.google.com/product/ethernet_adapter_for_chromecast

    Works perfectly and can now be used as multiroom, ie you can play music in sync in multiple chromecast audio devices. After using it for a year so it seems that it works worse now than before. Do not know if it's with bad software because the unit loses contact with your phone and tablet. Anyone that did not occur in the beginning.

    Absolutely fantastic thing that I do not get that I have not noticed before, even though I agree on some of having music systems in different rooms of the apartment. It is clearly buying opportunity. Only minus is that when playing music example webspotify on the computer so it is not gapless when driving a split continuous mix. It is less backlash if streaming from Spotify on your phone, however. It will certainly fix itself for future updates. Could also be due to spotify / browser.

    Sonos has had for five years and enjoyed it very much. Super Stable and smooth operation. But recently, I have become increasingly tired of the slow development of the system and just being able to make use of their different amplifiers and speakers. Today so many of them expect to be able to go directly into the music service to use and just "run". The Sonos need to go in and check the groups first because they occur so that they are grouped, not both group and individual speakers. And yes, you can run the tex Spotify directly from there too but honestly it leaves the integration much to be desired. In Google Home app, you can go in and predefine different desired groups while they remain as individual speakers. It means that once you have done that you do not go in there again, but you can, as in my case go directly to Spotify, where will all individual speakers and groups up to available devices. Why Chromecast Audio (CCA) then? Well because I can choose any model of active speakers / soundbar electricity. likn. with signalavkännande autostart. Then you get the same functionality as the other autonomous streaming systems. Multiroom function that I talked about above, then? Very convenient to all zones / groups show up as available devices directly into music Disadvantages? May take a few seconds to connect to when you select a group of several CCA involved. Compared with AirPlay? As iOS / MacOS users so I investigated that possibility, but two things limping: multiroom only from iTunes / Apple Music on the Mac as well as the playing of the unit using ie a bit like Bluetooth, use your cell phone and it rings it stops playing. CCA works there as streaming systems, ie your mobile / tablet only serves as a remote control. I think Chromecast Audio may be great just because you can connect speakers from different manufacturers. It is now also beginning to appear more and more speakers / sound bar with "Chromecast bolt-in" ie just as it sounds, the functionality is built in from the start. A great gadget for little money!

    Bought this to stream Spotify from your phone (iPhone 7) to a stereo that lacked Bluetooth. It works well but there are two minuses. You have to "light up" that activate the cell phone to change the volume. Can thus not making idle. A little sad, I think. Then it will actually drive significantly warm. Even when not in use, but only is in standby. Much like a mobile charger that charges the full. If I only have the function to stream wirelessly to an old stereo then I recommend actually this product. Buy rather than a more traditional Bluetooth adapter.
