New Features

Sleep Timer

To activate the sleep timer, long press the gain circle until a pop-up menu appears. You can now select the desired delay until the room goes into sleep mode. To cancel the sleep timer, long press again and select Cancel.

Auto Sleep

By going to the room settings and then "Sleep" you can activate an automatic sleep function that gets triggered when the sound level has been below a threshold value for a certain amount of time. By default the threshold is set to -60 dB and the timer is set to 10 minutes. This means that, when the input level has been very low for 10 minutes, the 8c will automatically go to sleep mode.

How to update?

Once all speakers in a room have successfully discovered the new firmware, a gray notification icon will appear at the top of the room view in your Ascend app. To proceed with the firmware installation, click on this icon, which will direct you to the firmware view. In the firmware view, locate the 'Install' button at the bottom of the screen and click on it to initiate the installation process.

Please ensure that you have updated your Ascend app to the latest version before proceeding with the firmware installation. Keeping your app up to date is essential to ensure compatibility and to access the latest features and enhancements.
