With Chromecast built in, you can stream music/tunes/podcasts/playlists to the Encore+ from more than 100 music apps by simply tapping the Cast button on your favorite Chromecast-enabled apps on your phone, tablet or from a Chrome web browser on your Mac or PC.

The multi-room audio feature allows users to group one or more Encore+ radios with any Chromecast built-in audio device, including Google Home, and stream to one or all devices simultaneously.

The Encore+ features a class-D digital amplifier and stereo sound, along with an unprecedented internal speaker system and the ability to customize your audio settings with equalization options to suit user’s unique tastes. If that isn’t enough for users, the Encore+ can be connected to most stereo systems.
Equipped with a multi-functional USB port, the Encore+ serves as a power bank for smart devices, or as a UPnP media player to listen to your saved audio files via a USB thumb drive, hard driver or network media player.
