Overview

  • Pre-amplifier connects six different zones to eight A/V components for local access and control

  • Amplifier, IR receivers and emitters, and RC68+ programming tool required and sold separately

Essential Info

Create a six-zone whole-house audio and video distribution system that lets you access and control up to eight different A/V components remotely from wall-mounted keypads. The Xantech 6-Zone 8-Source Remote Pre-Amplifier is an infrared remote-controlled audio/video preamp capable of switching eight source inputs into six separate zone cards for multi-zone, multi-room operation. Add a powered amplifier, and you'll be able to connect to every speaker and television in your house. For local control, each zone requires a Xantech infrared receiver or wall-mounted keypad.

This item is rack mountable with the Xantech RMZPR.

    Control Up to 8 Audio or Video Components
    Each common source can be controlled with an existing or learning IR remote with the use of external Xantech IR emitters or Interface Modules. Each emitter output is individually adjustable for high or low IR level. From each zone, you'll be able to turn devices on, adjust volume, and even turn off every device at once. Additional global commands include whole-house source selection for "party mode."

    RC68+ Programming Device Required for Setup
    The RC68+ remote/programmer is required for setup. This programming device contains all necessary IR commands to set the system up and to program the universal learning devices that will operate the system, such as the Programmable Controller. The input level for each connected A/V source can be adjusted with the RC68+ remote/programmer by the installer. This prevents large volume differences when switching between sources.

    Mounting Flexibility
    The Xantech 6-Zone 8-Source Remote Pre-Amplifier can be mounted four ways: between wall studs, on top of wall studs using a separate flat panel, racked into a standard 19-inch rack using an optional rack-mount plate, or freestanding.

    I had very nice experience with Smarthome parts i had purchased a item that was in stock and it came to me on time however when we looked at the part it was not the right item. I call to see about returning the item. This went very well. i had no problems getting the RGA # and sending the part back. A very good first time experience with Smarthome.
