System overview


The Raumfeld wireless music system lets you enjoy your own digital music, online music services and internet radio in hi-fi sound quality. All that’s required is a Raumfeld player and the Raumfeld Controller App for your smartphone or tablet. Control your music from the comfort of your sofa without signal cable, docking station or computer.

Once connected to your WiFi network, music can be streamed to your Raumfeld player. If you plan to listen to music simultaneously in multiple rooms or stream primarily lossless digital music files, we suggest connecting your Raumfeld speakers to the WiFi via the Raumfeld Expand. The Expand creates an additional WiFi network exclusively for music streaming. This increases the overall performance of the music streaming system.

Systems that do not include an Expand

In order to stream music, your Raumfeld player must be connected to your home network. For a wireless connection, use your wireless access point to include your Raumfeld player into your home WiFi network. Alternatively, you can directly connect your Raumfeld player to your network router via Ethernet cable.

For playback, you can access music from online streaming services and internet radio via the cloud or your own music collection via your home network. You can also copy your music collection onto a USB storage device and attach it directly to a Raumfeld device – either a player or the Expand.

Playback is controlled via the free Raumfeld Controller App for smartphones and tablets.

System Properties

The Raumfeld multi-room system allows you to play the same music throughout your home synchronously or different tracks in different rooms. However, we do recommend using the Raumfeld Expand if you plan to stream to many players simultaneously as this will increase performance.

System Requirements:

  • For setup and controlling playback: Raumfeld Controller App for smartphones and tablets (works with Android and iOS operating systems above 7.1)
  • To connect to your home network: Network router with DHCP
  • For wireless playback: Wireless access point (IEEE 802.11g/n), WPA/WPA2 encrypted

Systems using a Raumfeld Expand:

If you plan to play music simultaneously to multiple devices, we recommend the Raumfeld Expand for use with your router as a multi-room performance booster. By creating its own WiFi network, the Expand provides sufficient bandwidth for streaming music to multiple rooms. The Expand functions as a bridge between your Raumfeld WiFi network, your home network and the internet. In order to do so, the Expand must be connected to your network router via Ethernet cable.

For playback, you can either access music from online music services and internet radio via the cloud or your own music collection via your home network. In addition, the Raumfeld Expand is equipped with a USB port (2.0). This allows external storage devices to be directly attached to the Expand for streaming to the Raumfeld players in your network.

Overview of Raumfeld Components

Raumfeld players are devices capable of playing your digital music files or music from online streaming services and internet radio once integrated into your home WiFi network. Raumfeld players can be divided into two categories:

Active WiFi speakers

Thanks to integrated amplification, streaming technology and audio hardware, active WiFi speakers can directly play back the streamed audio they receive. Simply connect the speakers to the power supply, introduce them to your home network and select music via the Raumfeld Controller App - additional hi-fi components are not required.

Network audio player

The Raumfeld Connector is a network audio player that allows you to stream with an existing audio system. Simply connect the Connector to a free input on your amplifier. You can then select music from the cloud or your home network via the Raumfeld Controller App for smartphones and tablets.
