Atlantic Technology Injects Gatecrasher1 with Alexa Voice Control


(December 11, 2019) Atlantic Technology has released a 'Works with Alexa' firmware update for Gatecrasher1, allowing its wireless audio machine to be operated by Amazon's ecosystem of Alexa infused smart speakers.

Once enabled, owners can issue Gatecrasher1 a variety of voice commands. For example, they can request favorite internet radio stations and tracks from subscribed streaming services, while also controlling song playback, volume levels, and more.

"Adding the 'Works With Alexa' capability to Gatecrasher dramatically improves the sound quality of all your Alexa music, podcasts and internet radio by playing the output through Gatecrasher's superior 2.1 stereo system for a more pleasing room-filling Hi-Fi sound." said Paul Fredrickson, Director of Business Development for Muto Communications Atlantic Technology's marketing and PR agency of record. "Alexa voice commands give Gatecrasher1 users the ultimate convenience of hands-free operation so you can instantly operate Gatecrasher as needed while you're cooking or doing some other task."

AV NIRVANA recently reviewed Gatecrasher1, concluding: "Gatecrasher 1 stands as one of the wireless segment's newer and lesser-known whole-home speakers, making it a unique option in the $500 and under price range... Anyone on the hunt for an attractive and good sounding wireless speaker system should have Gatecrasher 1 on their radar, especially if they want gear that's flexible and capable of playing a more traditional stereo role. It's a solid first entry by Atlantic Technology."
