Lode users can now enjoy the extensive Napster catalogue of over 50 million tracks ad-free across the entire Lode product platform.

5th July 2017 – London – Lode Audio, the UK-based audio company that creates products dedicated to the Custom Installation market, is delighted to announce that with immediate effect, the Napster music streaming service is now available across its platform.  Users of Lode products, which include the single-zone LA1 and four-zone LA4 audio matrices, will be able to access any of the tracks within Napster’s extensive catalogue.  After a simple firmware update, Napster subscribers can simply add their accounts to gain access to the catalogue and their playlists.

With seamless integration across all the major automation platforms, including Crestron, AMX, RTI, Control 4 and Command Fusion, Lode users with Napster subscriptions can easily browse the catalogue, create playlists, view album art and generally navigate the streaming service.  Proprietary iOS and Android apps are also available, offering full wireless control with negligible latency, whilst full browse control, super-quick cover art population, gesture swipe, single/grouped room control and full lock control (allowing the user to control volume, track forward/back and play/pause when their device locks or times out) are standard. 

Commenting on the integration, Ed Stark at Lode Audio, said, “This is perfect timing for the integration of the Napster streaming service into the Lode platform!  A name synonymous with music streaming and accessed globally, Napster experiences wide-spread usage throughout the US, which is of particular importance as we expand the Lode distribution in the territory with our excellent team of distributors and reps. The integration of Napster adds to our ever growing portfolio of services, allowing Lode users the ability to enjoy the catalogue of over 50 million tracks seamlessly via their control systems or our control apps.”
