More and more home owners are desiring multi-room audio installations, but these multi-room audio systems have always been complicated, labor-intensive, and inflexible, until now. MTX A-BUS is a completely new technology that provides a simple yet flexible solution for multi-room audio with great sound quality. The MTX ABUS-HUB1X2 Whole Home Audio Hub distributes a single source of stereo audio, power and control signals (via IR Emitters
- sold separately) out to 2 zones. It provides a cost-effective way to create a 2-zone audio system using only source components and A-BUS controller keypads such as the VC-2 control modules (sold separately).
One of the biggest advantages of an MTX A-BUS system is that pre-wiring is simple. Only one Category 5/5e cable
is needed to be run to each zone, meaning an easy wiring plan can be used to create a flexible multi-zone system. Traditionally, multi-zone installations require that every part of the system was wired directly back to the source, which was messy and consumed valuable space. Structured audio installations provide a simple and practical solution. The one CAT-5 from each zone connects to the distribution hub(s), in this case a 1-Source, 2-Zone A-Bus Hub, in the structured wiring panel. As a 1-source hub, only one CAT-5 or RCA cable is required to run to the main system area where an MTX A-BUS input socket is located. The wiring and space saved is a considerable advantage over any alternative system.
MTX also offers a 1-Source, 4-Zone
and 4-Source, 8-Zone
A-Bus Hubs for Whole Home Audio, each sold separately.
