If your music is on the hard drive of your Windows® 7 or Windows® 8 PC, just use the Music Player app, or Windows Media Player to select your music and play it to the ARIS speaker of your choice. Windows® 8 also has Internet music service streaming capabilities. For example, if you open Pandora Radio in Windows 8 via IE, you’ll be able to stream right to your ARIS Speaker. Plus, dedicated apps in Windows 8 such as Slacker radio and Xbox Music will stream to the ARIS speaker, and we expect numerous audio player apps to appear on Windows 8.
You can also highlight any music file or playlist on your computer, right click, and select ‘Play To’ from the menu. Now just Play them To your ARIS speakers!
