Irvine-based VIZIO announced this morning that it has launched a new set of multi-room speakers, designed for whole home audio. According to VIZIO, the new VIZIO SmartCast Crave Pro and Crave 360 Speakers support Google Cast for audio streaming, and can be controlled by mobile devices through Wi-Fi. The new SmartCast Crave 360 Speakers have a MSRP of $249.99 and the Crave Pro speakers will have a MSRP of $299.99. Both are driven by a new, VIZIO SmartCast app, which lets users control their whole home audio experience.
