Russound, a leader in multiroom audio, announced today that Amazon Alexa voice control is available for its MCA-series and XStream series products.

“We told our customers at CEDIA that we were close to finishing this new and compelling voice control feature on six of our core products, and we are thrilled to deliver on the promise,” said Porritt.
