Voice Control with Russound Has Never Been Easier! Introducing VoicePlay, the new streaming, voice-controlled multiroom audio system. The key component of VoicePlay is the V-KP-1, an Amplified Keypad with Alexa Built-in. Our new elegant system features a 2 channel amplifier built directly into the keypad and can deliver crystal clear sound to 2 loudspeakers while being powered via the V-PS-2 60W Power Supply. We also ensured that installation can easily utilize previous audio systems as typically these systems use a home run to connect the speakers in that particular room or zone. This makes the VoicePlay system perfect for any new installs or to quickly and easily update any existing system to add the best of streaming audio, app, and voice control.

Ease of Use
Easily Upgrade Virtually Any System
The V-KP-1 is designed to be able to re-use any existing wiring in a home in order to upgrade existing legacy audio system components to a modern, voice-controllable, multi-room audio system.
The majority of existing installed audio systems utilized a “home” run of speaker wires from some central location to a volume control in each of the rooms of the home. From those volume controls, separate speaker wires would then be run within the room to the left and right loudspeakers.
Creating Groups for Synchronized Audio by using the Alexa App
The Amazon Alexa app is used to create groups of VoicePlay devices to use for synchronized audio playback. Once the groups are created, they are available to use with voice control from anywhere in the home. The Alexa app is no longer needed to play music or use the groups. VoicePlay devices can even be in multiple groups for you to use when needed. For example, a Kitchen speaker might be in one group called "Dining Area", in a second group called "Downstairs" and in a third group called "Everywhere". You can then just ask Alexa to play your music on the speaker or group that you desire at any time. Download instructions here.
