As part of our coverage of CEDIA Expo 2021, Tim Albright catches up with Juke Audio. The Los Angeles-based manufacturer designs and creates multi-room amplifiers with streaming capabilities.
“Juke [Audio] came to be because we were the consumer. We moved into a new house with prewired speakers but the old homeowner ripped out the technology. We were looking for something that would power and control those speakers.” said Colton Forth, co-founder of Juke Audio.
Forth couldn’t find the product that fit his needs, so he decided to design his own solution. The company is now in 1500 homes after 18 months of business. The Juke-6 and Juke-8 provide power to pre-installed speakers with simplistic streaming.
Each set comes with four wireless inputs, allowing customers to stream from their smartphones and tablets. This technology eliminates the need for audio controllers and wall panels. Juke also supports two analog inputs, commonly used for surround sound and CD players. The Juke-6 can reach up to 6 zones in your home while the Juke-8 reaches up to 8. The devices can connect to one another wirelessly if you are in a larger home.
