SMA series update adds internet streaming as input source

Pioneer Electronics has deployed a free firmware update that adds the Pandora Internet radio and vTuner Internet radio services as available features on its line of SMA series Wi-Fi speaker systems, the XW-SMA1-K, XW-SMA3-K and XW-SMA4-K. With the update, Pandora and vTuner are incorporated as sources available on the wireless speakers.

Pandora Internet radio fans can access their personalized radio stations through Pioneer's ControlApp and control playback to the SMA wireless speakers. Much like the PC and smartphone versions, with ControlApp, users can select thumbs up/down, create stations, and display radio stations, album, song title and artist. 

The vTuner Internet radio service offers access to thousands of Internet radio stations around the world, covering a wide variety of genres. From the ControlApp on-screen display, users can find their favorite participating stations and receive the broadcasts regardless of the station's location.

The free firmware update to add Pandora and vTuner is now available on the Pioneer website. Pandora is currently only available for US customers, though the service has recently expanded to include Australia and New Zealand.
