Dynastrom is an audio company that makes software that can be integrated into loudspeaker hardware in order to stream music throughout the house over standard Wi-Fi. Variety had earlier reported that Roku was working on far-field voice control — a feature found on voice-controlled smart speakers like the Amazon Echo — and was busy hiring staff into a “center of audio excellence”.

This acquisition seems to be a step towards that goal. Roku's IPO in September valued the company at $2 billion.
