Essential Info

The D5XH 4 Source, 6 Zone Digital Audio Expansion Router, when used with the D5RH Digital Audio Router, provides the ability to listen to 4 different audio sources in up to 28 separate areas of the home for total flexibility and convenience. No need to have multiple audio systems in different areas, just select a source from one of Xantech’s premium in-wall keypad, sit back and enjoy!
End-to-end digital architecture means that the entire signal path of the audio system remains in the digital domain from start to finish. This means that noise, signal loss and other unwanted effects are never present. Each keypad contains a 30 Watt per channel digital amplifier that allows the user to play music at loud volume when desired. This also means that music at any volume is full and rich,
without distortion and with plenty of bass!
The D5RH and D5XH connect with CAT-5 and speaker wire, making them reliable and easy to install. Any digital or analog audio source can be connected directly to the D5XH Digital Audio Router, or remotely using a D5IP Local Source Wall Plate. Keypads and Wall Plates are connected to the D5XH using CAT-5 wiring (inexpensive and reliable), while speakers are connected to D5KP Amplified
Keypads using traditional speaker wire.
