A friend of a friend asked me about a potential new product category. His details were sketchy but it being targeted as a when to get content, audio or video, distributed any room of our home. Any source, any HDMI / 4K / HiRes, either powered speakers from the maker (which has a sterling history with passive speakers...) or to a connection device for amps / speakers of your choice...
Very "luxury" looking / gorgeous integrated remote......)
