Plug: First, you connect the audio source to the AudioFetch system you’re using. It could be a television, satellite, cable or IPTV input if using the traditional multiple-channel AudioFetch system, or a microphone if using the portable, single-channel FetchExpress. Note that AudioFetch provides 3 different audio connection issues to ensure your sources connect today and in the future. Next, you connect the AudioFetch system to the wireless internet router via the Ethernet jack.
And Play: Once connected to both the source and the WiFi, the AudioFetch system automatically broadcasts audio from the source through the local WiFi network.
