Essential Info

The Xantech RAT1 IR Remote Auto Transformer is an infrared remote controlled stereo speaker volume control with impedance matching capability. It allows individual volume control of from one to 16 pair of stereo speakers from one stereo power amplifier, using one RAT1 for each stereo speaker pair. It is controlled with any Xantech IR Receiver or keypad or with Xantech MIRV1 motorized volume controls. The RAT1 maintains correct impedance matching between the amplifier and the speakers with the use of instant setting S1 to S8 jumpers, located on the unit. This eliminates the need for separate impedance matching devices in multi-room installations. Using the RC68+ Programmer, internal E2 PROM can be set to different group codes for independent operation of RAT1's when on a common IR bus.
