What are the differences between A1-MR (Wi-Fi) and A1 (Bluetooth)?
A1-MR uses your home WiFi network to stream music directly from the cloud or from an Apple Airplay source. A1 is a traditional Bluetooth speaker where music is streamed directly from your phone or other Bluetooth ready devices.
Your phone, tablet or computer controls the music being played on both systems. However, since the A1-MR is connected to music services through the internet directly, once playing it will act like a traditional radio. This frees up your phone for calls and does not drain the battery.
The A1-MR can be synchronized with other A1-MRs or the Audioengine B-Fi, creating a whole home solution with independent volume zones.
A1-MR uses the Audioengine Control app for initial setup while no product app is required for A1.
