CasaTunes music server adds AirPlay compatibility

CasaTunes, maker of multi-room music servers that allow users to hear their tunes anywhere in the house, has upgraded its operating system to let iPhone and iPad users wirelessly stream their audio using Apple's AirPlay feature.

The company announced the release of CasaTunes 4.0 on Tuesday. While the hardware has always accommodated Internet-based radio stations, it previously worked only using wired-in speaker systems. Tuesday's upgrade includes the addition of CasaTunes Air, which lets users stream music wirelessly from their iOS devices to the server, or wirelessly from CasaTunes to AirPlay-enabled speakers.

The new software works on CasaTunes's complete line of multi-room music servers--starting at $1299 for standalone servers--which let you choose which sound-system-equipped room to play which music in. The equipment comes ready to play music from Internet-based services such as Pandora, Rdio, and Spotify.

Users can download CasaTunes 4.0 now.
