    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.

    Excellent Device - Great Documentation

    • Elijah Hall,

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

    Cons: None.

    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.

    Got it on sale, worth the money

    • Phik,

    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.

    Happy with everything. Sound quality is nice and able to power my speakers quite well.

    Awesome product for the money

    • Alex,

    Pros: Easy plug and play. No configuration needed.

    Cons: No IR receiver on the main unit for automation

    This works great so far.

    Works better than I hoped

    • Anonymous,
    •  Oklahoma City, OK 
    • 1/28/2016 9:16:36 PM

    Pros: Easy to hook up and easy to use. Hooked up to some great in-wall/ceiling Bose speakers, it sounds great.

    Cons: Big and heavy, but no more than any other Amp. The hub connection plate was a bit difficult to surface mount due to the close proximity and depth of the jacks.

    I bought this model because I had priced the alternatives and felt they were overpriced. This one had the features and capabilities that I wanted at a reasonable price. It works well. The only caveat was the original instructions insisted wiring must be 568A. Then they released updated instructions. Not a big deal, but caused me some confusion.

    Fine...unless it dies.

    • WBMurray,

    Pros: The sound quality is good and comparable to the high-ned NUVO I also own. Price is incredible. Installation is simple. Allows home automation via RS232.

    Cons: The unit stopped working. No lights. I checked the fuse in the back of the unit by the power supply and its fine. No lights on the front and none of the panels light up. Its dead.

    As reported by others the time to turn off a zone by pressing the keyboard is annoyingly long. There is no way to turn off (or on) all zones from a keypad. Would be simple to fix with a software update.

    I sure wish my app didn't die. We use it in our vacation house and it was working fine until one trip up it was "toes up". No signs of life. Power supply fuse tests fine but the unit is non-responsive.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your review on PID 10761. My apologies for the recent issues experienced with this multizone controller. I just wanted to mention that there is a 1.5a/250v fuse inside the unit that can be accessed by removing the top of the casing. You should be able to see it by looking down at the board. Can we try checking that fuse to ensure it isn't blown? Please let me know what you find. Sorry again for the trouble and I hope this helps.

    THANK YOUI! I am pleased to say that the inside fuse was blown. I replied that and the am is working again. The only odd residual effect is that one of the zone LEDs (that tune blue or white to indicate on/off) will not show blue anymore. I can live with that.

    Thank you for your help. Do you have any information about what causes that interior fuse to blow? It would be helpful to buyers to know what they should be caution of.

    Thanks again!

    Happy to help! I'm really glad that we got it working again. In regard to your inquiry, we unfortunately do not have any particular information as to what would cause the interior fuse to blow. However, I will relay this to our product team to see if they can find what the cause may be and resolve it if possible. Thank you again for your feedback and for keeping me updated!
