Cignias Announces iPhone App and General Availability of NAO Symphony Wireless Music Systems

Enjoy High-Quality Sound Wirelessly Throughout Your Home Using Your iPhone or iPod touch

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Cignias today launched its free iPhone app, MusicNAO, and announced the general availability of its NAO Music System line of products, including NAO Symphony and NAO Symphony Noir. The NAO Music System offers listeners a dynamic, high-quality music solution that allows an iPhone or iPod touch to control and play music through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

The NAO Music Systems provide iPhone users with multiple ways to enjoy their digital music library throughout their home using an iPhone or iPod touch. With the MusicNAO app, iPhones can connect via Wi-Fi to control all functions of a docked iPod and play music through the NAO Symphony System while still having access to other iPhone features. Any stereo Bluetooth-enabled device can stream music to a NAO Music Station while in Bluetooth mode.

"We all know the iPhone and iPod touch are some of the most elegant music players on the planet, but getting that music to play on home speakers can be cumbersome," said Shawn Saleem, CEO of Cignias. "The NAO Symphony wirelessly transforms your iPhone and iPod touch into a powerful home entertainment device."

The NAO Symphony automatically downloads firmware updates and new features as they become available, providing users with a future-proof sound system. As Cignias continues to add features to the NAO Symphony, the system will update itself and supply users with the latest features and technology.
