The Juke-6 and Juke-8 by Juke Audio are multiroom audio streaming systems designed to simplify the user experience and provide a faster install for new builds and retrofits alike.
The number in each product name denotes the number of zones each system can support. According to Juke Audio, the device streams through Wi-Fi connectivity, so homeowners can play audio from an iOS- or Mac OS-based product to any zone within their house. Both systems are designed to enable users to play as many as four zones simultaneously.
The Juke-6 incorporates 12 channels of amplification to power six zones of stereo audio, and the Juke-8 incorporates 16 channels of amplification to power eight zones of audio.
For installation, Juke describes the setup to take place within minutes. As an example, the Juke-6 or Juke-8 can be placed by an integrator into a closet or cabinet. From there, all the integrator needs to do is run the speaker cables and connect the units to the network via Ethernet or wirelessly using WPA2 encryption. Theoretically, the company notes, this can also be done with outdoor speakers, so long as the wires are able to reach back to the Juke device.
The company adds the Juke-6 and Juke-8 are compatible with speaker loads ranging from 2- to 8 ohms to allow for lots of speaker choices to complement the systems.
