Essential Info

One of the most popular trends in Home Audio is whole house audio distribution. Unfortunately, true multi-zone distribution systems are normally built into only the higher end receivers or require an expensive audio distribution network. This speaker selector solves that problem.

The speaker selector allows you to distribute your source signals to several sets of speakers distributed throughout your home. Additionally, a good speaker selector like this 2-Source, 2-Zone A/B Speaker Selector, will allow you to have different source audio sent to different rooms so that someone in one room can be listening to something different in another room. Most importantly, a speaker selector provides impedance matching, which ensures that the additional speakers do not overload or damage your amps. This speaker selector also features built-in independent volume controls for each source.

Installation is straight forward and simple. This is part of making your dream sound system into a reality.

Don't forget to add speaker wire to complete your installation.

    A quality built product, easy to connect and use. Thanks.

    Got the product in good time. Installation was easy. One out going channel does not work properly, cut in and out. Put two small surround speakers on one outgoing channel, and it works fine. Not worth trying to exchange at this point...
