Roku Just Acquired a Multi-Room Audio Startup




Recently there has been a lot of talk about Roku getting back to its root with an audio system with a smart speaker. Now Roku has acquired a Danish multi-room audio startup Dynastrom for $3.5 million.

The acquisition was disclosed in a regulatory filing the company made Thursday and discovered by Variety. The filing didn’t mention the company by name, and simply stated that the goal of the acquisition was to “enhance the company’s player product offering.” Variety did discover that a number of employees from Dynastrom employees updated their Linkedin in September to work at Roku including its CEO and CTO.

Here is how Dynastrom describes their company:

Roku has slowly been building a team focused on far-field voice control. Well, some of this can be used for the current line of Roku players it seems clear Roku is trying to expand into smart Speakers.

Well Roku didn’t talk about any audio plans during the phone call they did add that “We are investing significantly into a massive opportunity,” according to Roku’s CFO, Steve Louden.
