    6 Zone Home Audio Multizone Controller and Amplifier Kit - NO LOGO

    Distribute and control music and other audio material to up to six stereo speaker zones using this 6-Zone Home Audio Multizone Controller and Amplifier.

    This multizone controller is a 6x6 matrix with six stereo audio inputs and six outputs. Each input channel can be independently directed to any of the output channels using the included remote control or the keypad controllers installed in each zone.

    The six inputs are 2-channel stereo, with four line level inputs using RCA jacks, one input on a 3.5mm TRS jack, and a Toslink digital optical input. A separate PA input allows you to override selected audio material and broadcast a single audio source to each connected zone. Additionally, a mute input allows you to mute each output channel using a single source trigger.

    Each output channel features an amplifier that is capable of delivering 50 watts/channel into a 4-ohm load or 25 watts/channel into an 8-ohm load. Each amplifier can be individually bridged to produce 100 watts into an 8-ohm load. The amp uses Euroblock connectors for the speaker level outputs, which takes less space than push-grip connector terminals. The Euroblock connectors can accept speaker wire up to 12AWG and can be removed from the amplifier for easier installation.

    Each output channel also features RCA line-level output jacks, allowing you to use a separate, more powerful amplifier in any output zone or to send the audio to a self-amplified component, such as a television display.

    Each zone is independently controlled at the zone using a wallplate keypad with lighted, soft-touch buttons. The keypads connect to the main unit using Cat5e or Cat6 Ethernet cable. Each keypad features an infrared "eye", which can propagate single-band IR remote control signals to individual IR transmitters connected to the master controller. This allows you to control the source devices from each zone using their native remote controls.

    The controller features 12 volt trigger outputs for each distribution zone, plus a master trigger for the entire system. This allows you to activate automated devices, such as lowering a projection screen or dimming the lights whenever the system as a whole, or an individual zone, is activated.

    Up to three master controllers can be connected together to provide a massive 6x18 matrix, with audio source and control information passed between master controllers using the included 18-pin ribbon cable. The master controller can accept 115V and 230V inputs. The voltage selector switch is covered to prevent it from being accidentally changed.

    The master controller features an RS232 serial input, which lets you program a computer for automated control. A complete list of RS232 commands and codes, including status reporting commands, is included in the manual. The package includes a 19" rack mount kit.

    Great quality product
    This is my first whole home audio controller so I don't have any direct comparison to other brands however the product quality appears very good. I purchased this unit with 5 pairs of PID 4101 and 1 pair of PID 6971 indoor/outdoor speakers for our new house and they appear to be good compliments for the home audio unit. When researching other brands with similar functions and number of zones they were going to cost more than 2x that of the Monoprice unit! I think anyone considering buying a multi zone home audio controller should definitely consider this product.

    PROS: Quality built product, 6 zone capability, nice wall plate controllers, affordable price.

    CONS: None really. Only wish it came with color options for wall plates.

    Great for the money!
    I just received this product after an exhaustive search of options for my new home under construction. I have never setup a multi zone system before and the number of different options for doing so has been overwhelming to say the least. When I began my search, I was a little disappointed that Monoprice did not have an option for me since they are my go-to for anything electronic. After literally months of educating myself, I see this system pop up at Monoprice and was ecstatic. I was looking for something with 6-8 zones for the primary purpose of music from my iPhone or iPod. I needed something pretty simple to install since I am a rookie at home audio. I also wanted something with at least a couple different inputs since 1 of my zones is in the garage and another is on the back porch. This system seemed to fit my requirements and the price was unbeatable compared to what I had been seeing. I have not installed it yet since it just came yesterday and I probably won't for another 2-3 weeks, but after looking everything over it seems well within my capabilities. The only reason I knocked a star off, which I debated over since the price was so low, was because there is no built in bluetooth or remote input options. The bluetooth seems feasible since monoprice sells an external bluetooth receiver, so I don't know why it couldn't be built in. I don't even know if it would be possible, but aux input jacks on the wall controls would certainly be a nice feature so I don't have to walk to my hub to plug the phone in. Regardless, fantastic value and can't wait to get it installed!

    PROS: Price!! Low cost solution for a whole-home audio setup

    CONS: No bluetooth capability. No option for remote input options that I am aware of.

    Hope to have Html5 mobile app and Homeseer soon



    CONS: A lot of people have already commented on minor bleeding, but for the price it cant be beat!

    Got it on sale, worth the money
    Happy with everything. Sound quality is nice and able to power my speakers quite well.

    PROS: Sound quality is excellent, controller is well manufactured. No major complaints.

    CONS: Should be able to dim the displays - it's pretty bright for a wall panel in a bedroom. Anyone know a way to dim the display?

    Also having the RJ-45 connector in the wall panels reversed. If you don't break the clip off of the connector it's basically stuck in there for good.

    Excellent value
    Great value. Using in bridged mode with goggle chromecast and my Onkyo TX-RZ800 AVR connected to access other sources. Highly recommended.
    I few tips: My mistake yet make sure you have each keypad set up right ( toggle switches on back) otherwise unpredictable malfunction. The cat cable wiring is old config - need to ensure cables conform or put connector ends on yourself ( ahhhh!).

    Great multizone package - monoprice scores again
    Replaced older Russound CA system with this unit. It is awesome - don't know why I waited. Reviews here really helped. Along the way the unit stopped powering on which required the top to be removed and the power supply fuse to be replaced but no problems since then. Configured with previously wired monoprice ceiling speakers across 6 zones. For extra credit, used an adafruit huzzah board and ESP-LINK firmware for wifi to RS232 bride which is also awesome. For awesome points, configured irule iphone app to control all zones remotely.

    PROS: Great package with superb amp, great looking room controlers and ability to control via RS232.
    Great manual with needed information including RS232 controls sequences.
    Monoprice delivery and service.


    CONS: Keypads are a little bright at night and cannot be dimmed.

    Wonderful home audio solution
    When we built our house I knew I wanted to install speakers in the kitchen, living room, master bath, and porch, but at the time I didn't have the patience (or funds) to hire out yet another contractor to install a system. Instead we wired speaker cable to our various rooms and ethernet cable to where we thought we wanted volume control with all cables routed to under the staricase.

    Version 1 of the audio system was a home theater router with multizone output hooked to a few Apple TVs. It worked to stream mustic from our phones, but volume control was patchy and the ethernet controls were too slow to implement via a homemade Arduino/Raspberry Pi solution (dispite a fun few months of trying to do it).

    Other solutions were doing much more than I wanted and cost way more than I liked, but then lo and behold I found this. It was exactly what I wanted.



    Installation was pretty simple since I already had the ethernet cables routed to where I needed them (don't ask how I managed to go 2 years with a two-gang hole in my kitchen..) and voila! Volume and source control, with decent room to tweak the bass and trebble. I'm in musical hog heaven.



    Now there were two catches, one othem my fault. My patch cabling skills are still being worked on and I found that I had improperly set up my ethernet jack in one of my walls: even though I could pass a network cable tester and route a decent internet connection through the cable, plugging in the wall mount on that one cable literally shut off all of the ohter units. I don't know what protocol they're using but it uses every wire and is more sensitive than my netbook is. In any case, replacing the jack fixed the problem.



    Secondly, and its a minor thing, as mentioned I'm using Apple TVs to stream music from our phones. This means converting the HDMI/Optical audio output to analog inputs. That in and of itself is annoying but ultimately okay. The really odd part is there is one input group that allows digital inputs BUT it's input 6. This can be confusing to anyone who didn't do the installation, especially since it makes the most sense (at least to me) to have that be the primary music Apple TV. Oh well, minus one star for confusing the users a bit.



    As is I have 2 Apple TVs, an AM/FM tuner, and my old record player patched in and plenty of room to grow. Life is good, highly reccomend this product!

    PROS: Great sound quality

    Easy to use/install

    CONS: Only one digital audio input, and its in zone 6, not zone 1

    Great unit
    I bought this a year ago for a new house construction and just got it up and going. It works well with good sound quality. I have a Grace tuner and apple TV hooked up and they come through nice a clear. I have it paired with monoprice speakers, Product Number: 6034 and they work well with more than enough power to drive them. I was worried but had no issues with them. I have the power less than half way and it is plenty loud.

    The set comes with the cover plates for the wall controllers but be warned that if you put a controller in a double gang box, a standard depth cover plat will stick out slightly. The controller distribution could be better designed or come with an oversized gang box. You need enough room in the box to plug 6x cat cables in it so I am going to have to look for an open back box to get it to work.

    PROS: Works well

    lots of power for what I want it for

    nice controllers

    optional remote

    CONS: takes too long to power off. Have to hold the button for 5 seconds

    Excellent Device - Great Documentation
    I purchased this audio controller to handle 5 different audio zones within our home. The volume controls are easy to use, attractive, and simple to install with only a CAT5e RJ45 cable required for each.
    The speakers attached quite easily from bare wire, and the controller switches between audio inputs quickly and accurately.
    I am in the process of wiring my home automation system to allow the doorbell to use the PA input and using the serial port to report audio status.

    PROS: High Quality. Good Documentation. Easy to Setup.

    CONS: None.

    Excellent value for the price!
    It took some patience on my part and great customer service on Monoprice.com's part to get me up and running. The first unit I received would not power on (verified all hook-ups were correct). Opened up an RMA with the customer service dept, and received a replacement amp unit - again, with the same issue! Third time was the charm, as I was finally sent a unit that worked out of the box. Since then, I've hooked up 2 out of 6 zones and connected a few different inputs. The variety of inputs supported (RCAs, optical, line) is awesome, and the audio quality using Monoprice's 4101 8-inch in-wall speakers is fantastic! We've listened to a lot of loud Christmas music lately and I've enjoyed playing my 80's/EDM Pandora stations while working at home over the past 6 months of use.



    MP.com's customer service dept let me keep one of the two failed units (cheaper than sending it back, I guess). I did open it up and verified the power supply was operational (also noticed that the manufacturing quality/component selection of this unit is pretty nice). It appears the main board is the culprit, as it's definitely receiving power but not lighting the front-panel status LEDs (this was the extent of my troubleshooting without a service manual/schematic diagrams). Both units I received had the same failure, indicating this main board may be the source of most of the issues reported here. Bottom line, Monoprice stands behind their products, so if you receive a faulty unit, don't despair, just get in touch with their customer service!

    PROS: Many ways to connect inputs

    Pro features (digital control outputs, rs232 control) at bargain pricing

    Quality components/build

    Monoprice customer support

    CONS: Requires home-run speaker wiring (as opposed to speaker connections off the keypads in some other systems)

    Hit-or-miss quality control

    I can make all the zones to tune the same audio and does it work with automation systems?
    A shopper on Nov 28, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It works with automation systems that can control devices via serial connections, and have a driver for this unit. You'll have to ask the vendor of the automation system if they have one. When you ask them, tell them it's the same interface as the Dayton multi-zone amp in case they have a driver for that one.
    Each zone need to hear same source or you can make different zone tune a different source?
    A shopper on Nov 25, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Each zone is independent of the others, so you can listen to any of the 6 inputs on any of the 6 zones.
    Anyway to control the zones via bluetooth/multiple devices?
    A shopper on Nov 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Someone over on the AVS forum wrote a great app that runs on a PC that can control this unit very well. Once you have that app running, you can connect to it from your phone. There is not BT connectivity built in this unit though.
    Is it compatible with airport express or other wlan adaptors as keypads are too old technology?
    A shopper on Dec 2, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Are you talking about replacing the keypads with some phone app? Then probably not. There is a RS232 post on the back so might be able to control some functions from a PC. But volume, channel and other setting are most likely only controllable form the keypads.
    It’s a nice unit and works well, but yes 1990’s technology. I’ve a few friends using Denon or Sonos and that technology is really nice. But plan on spending 2-3K for it.
    Can the face plate remotes play nice together with rs232 control, specifically for volume. For example, if on the face plate the volume is set to 90%, then same zone is turned down to 30% through rs232, will the the remote receive that update or will touching the volume down one time raise the volume too 85% (lower from its previous 90% value, but actually raise from 30% current volume)?
    Svetlozar V on Dec 1, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, faceplate of wall controller will show actual value even when set from RS232.
    IR port, can be use for controlling other devices besides this amplifier? I do not see IR out port on this unit?
    Waldemar B on Nov 22, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, there is an IR output on the back of the unit. Each keypad has an input IR port, and if you point a remote at it, those commands will be output on the IR output port.
