July 23 2020, 00:20
Embedded wireless audio and voice solutions provider, Libre Wireless Technologies announced that the RIVA Concert and RIVA Stadium wireless audio speakers are re-launching in a 2.0 version that now includes all the latest features offered in Amazon Alexa Built-In services with a special focus on Amazon’s new Multiroom Music (“MRM”) capabilities. RIVA launched the Amazon voice-enabled speakers in 2018, already working with Libre Wireless, and superseding all previous models launched by RIVA Audio until 2017.

Both speakers now integrate comprehensive Amazon Alexa features and are based on RIVA’s original Trillium technology, a proprietary audio design that delivers a 300-degree sound field without excessive compression to allow improved reproduction of the musical content. This combination of premium audio quality and voice control provides users with and unprecedented natural sound as well as convenient listening experience. 

With Amazon MRM, users can play music to a single speaker or combine speakers into groups to listen and control music throughout your home. With MRM, the music streaming works seamlessly with Amazon-branded Echo speakers as well as other MRM certified 3rd party audio brand speakers. Simple voice commands can be used to control the entire home’s music experience as well as hear the news, control smart home devices, triggering tens of thousands of skills, and more.

The RIVA Voice Series, launched in 2018, now provides seamless wireless connectivity with the most advanced multiroom media streaming with MRM and the Amazon Comms and Messaging experiences by leveraging Libre’s LibreSync technology platform for Alexa Voice Services. Libre’s scalable platform integrates features across leading ecosystems, delivers optimized voice performance as well as flexible feature customizations based on their mature and certified LibreSync SDK.

“The collaboration between Amazon AVS, Libre, and RIVA has resulted in one of the most versatile multiroom speaker systems to come onto the market in 2020,” says Rikki Farr, Chief Executive Officer at RIVA Audio. “Once the speakers are set up with the simplicity of the BLE app, the listener then has total access to the award-winning sound through all of the mediums; this is a big step forward for sound quality and ease of use at really affordable prices.”

"We are truly excited to be the technology partner to RIVA to deliver what we believe are the most compelling premium speaker products in the market," says Jordan Watters, Chief Executive Officer of Libre Wireless Technologies. "Libre’s expertise in acoustic voice performance leveraging our advanced audio certification lab and software has delivered the most compelling products in the category – in both musical quality as well as voice feature performance."

The RIVA Concert and RIVA Stadium speakers are expected to be available in retail in August 2020, initially offered in US, UK and German markets. Software updates for the original versions launched in 2018 are not yet detailed by RIVA.
