ELK M1
« on: May 31, 2014, 08:45:20 pm »
Hello,
Does anyone know if I'll be able to control Sonos from ELK-M1 thru Myrobridge using rules.
I have 6 zones Sonos set up and just dont want to spend more on Russound controller.
Cheers
George

Hi George -- can the ELM send and receive RS232?  If so, you should be able to.  Look at the Myro:Bridge protocol.

Elk can support and send Russound RNET commands natively. I'm just not sure how to connect it because most likely I need to use ip-rs232 converter. Does myrobridge support RNET on serial? Do you have ELK in the lab? Lot of people will be interested if they can just use Sonos connect amp. without Russound controller.
Thank you
George

Let me look into it... it sounds like it would be similar to the proof-of-concept we did for HAI which can also send RNET via RS232.    If I understand correctly, the ELK is like a HAI where you cannot write your order drivers so we need to "emulate" something that already is supported.  Correct?

Hai and ELK are similar in that regard. Please Google elk audio notes which explain how elk works with Russound.
Thanks
