Details

The SoundBy PointSource Receiver offers the music connoisseur a unique combination of a powerful two (2) channel high end amplifier with low distortion and high performance, wireless streaming over AirPlay or DLNA, an AV receiver, and features such as HDMI connections for video devices.

Danish Design

The simple and elegant contemporary Danish compact design features only three (3) buttons, a navigation control wheel, and a large display that is easy to read from across large rooms. The SoundBy PointSource Receiver design engineers specifically worked to develop a control system that is functionally simple yet feature rich, allowing you to get the best listening experience from your music.

Compact and Powerful

The SoundBy PointSource Receiver is extremely small and compact compared to other AV-receivers that offer similar features and sound quality. Despite the compact size, no compromise has been made on the sound quality and overall system performance. The system delivers 2 x 125W through a high-end amplifier. The combined results of uncompromised technical development and simple controls lead to high quality listening experience in most normal listening conditions, whether you wish to relax to a gentle melody or get the heart beating at a party. HDMI with CEC and ARC

The SoundBy PointSource Receiver supports and is certified to use HDMI 1.4 including ARC (Audio Return Channel) and CEC (Consumer Electronic Control). With 3 HDMI inputs and 1 output to connect a TV, the SoundBy PointSource Receiver is easily able to work as the heart of a home theatre setup. Up to 3 HDMI devices, such as gaming consoles and DVD/Blu-ray machines, can be connected and will send the video to the TV via the SoundBy PointSource Receiver and the audio will be amplified to your loudspeakers. To maximise your listening experience, we recommend that you use the high quality SoundBy Point Loudspeakers to give a clear and powerful sound to your movies and games.

By connecting a television with ARC, you can send the audio from the TV back to the SoundBy PointSource Receiver through a single HDMI cable. If the TV does not support ARC, the sound from the TV can be sent to the Receiver through either an analogue or digital cable.

The CEC commands allows smooth and easy integration between the SoundBy PointSource Receiver and other CEC-compliant devices, thus allowing the volume to be controlled from the TVs remote control and the amplifier to be turned on/off with the television.

AirPlay and DLNA Streaming

AirPlay is a streaming solution provided by Apple that allows to you to stream audio from an iPad, iPhone, or Mac computer to the SoundBy PointSource Receiver. When streaming, the volume of the Receiver can be controlled directly by the Apple device. AirPlay works with many different music streaming services, thus making it possible to listen to millions of music tracks from Spotify and other streaming services. The SoundBy PointSource Receiver also supports DLNA. This technology allows for locally stored audio to be streamed from Android and Windows PCs to the Receiver. It is possible to stream music from different streaming services such as Tidal and Google Play Music to the Receiver via many third party apps such as Bubble UPnP (Android) and TuneBlade (Windows PC).

Remote Control and App

The SoundBy PointSource Remote Control has been designed with the same philosophy: Simple and attractive design with only the necessary buttons needed for daily usage. The simple and easy-to-use resilient aluminium remote control has only 6 buttons: allowing for turn on/off, change input source, volume adjustment, radio station change, tone balance (EQ) adjustment, and sound mute/unmute. The Receiver can also be controlled by the official ‘Montana Sound’ App which, beside the functions on the remote control, can change all the settings. It permits the sound and loudspeaker settings to be easily be changed while still relaxing in the comfort of your favoured chair or sofa.

DAB+

The SoundBy PointSource Receiver is supplied with a FM/DAB+ receiver module, thus making it possible to listen to a variety of local and national radio stations by connecting the supplied FM/DAB antenna. The Remote Control allows you to select your favourite radio stations, or you can use the ‘Montana Sound’ app – where you can see additional information relating to the radio station.

Analog and Digital Inputs

Two (2) analogue and two (2) digital inputs are available on the back of the SoundBy PointSource Receiver. This allows you to connect different audio sources such as CD players, DVD players, audio streamers (Sonos Connect), and to bring fresh life to your favourite records via a record player (a RIAA pre-amplifier must be used if you wish to connect a record player).

Subwoofer Output

If you need more bass, you can connect a subwoofer to the ‘Sub Out’ output on the back of the SoundBy PointSource Receiver, and the crossover frequency between the front speakers and the subwoofer can be adjusted in the Receiver.

Retro-fitting into Montana Furniture

The SoundBy PointSource Receiver was specifically designed to be small and compact to allow a perfect fit into the Montana Furniture range of modules. The compact size of the Receiver permits you to maximise the utility of space within your existing Montana Furniture modules with regard to positioning and size of the Amplifier.
