Essential Info

You don't need to maintain multiple audio components in every room of your home in order to enjoy music in every room. The NuVo Grand Concerto 6-Source 8-Zone System delivers audio from any six sources to up to eight different rooms or zones in your house, and with 80 watts of power per zone, the Grand Concerto's amplifier provides ample sound to drive several speakers in a single area. All communication is done over inexpensive cat. 5 cable.

    Control System Locally With Wall-Mounted Touch Pads
    You won't need to run to the system every time you want to change the volume or source of a zone. Six touch control pads are included with the Grand Concerto 6-Source 8-Zone System for easy local control. Each touch pad features a 2.7-inch vivid OLED control display that shows up to eight lines of text. Scroll through favorites, source options, and individual tracks to select a tune and adjust local volume in the appropriate room or zone. You can even use an IR remote control: Each keypad has a built-in infrared receiver. Six control pads are included with the system; additional Grand Concerto OLED Control Pads are sold separately.

    Expandable System
    Have a large home? The Grand Concerto whole-house audio system can be expanded to up to 16 zones by adding the Grand Concerto Expander System, which includes a zone controller/amplifier and six control pads. An expansion kit is also available with an amplifier and a single zone. The expander amplifier is also available to be purchased separately if you don't know how many control pads you'll need or if they're already installed.

    Upgrade Easily From an Older System
    If you had the original Concerto installed in your home, you can upgrade to the Grand Concerto simply by replacing your amplifier with the Grand Concerto Amplifier, ideal for homes in which keypads are already installed.

    Play Your iPod Through Your Grand Concerto
    Install the Remote iPod Dock almost anywhere in your house and you'll be able to call up, browse and control your iPod instantly from the backlit display of any of the control pads connected to your NuVo Grand Concerto whole-house audio system.

    Music Server & AM/FM/Weather/XM® Satellite Tuners Available
    Take your Grand Concerto to the next level by adding NuVo's smart components, which provide full display feedback and control of connected sources through each Concerto Control Pad. Add the M3 Music Server to play your entire music library on a Windows Media Player-based 160GB hard drive that can sync with your PC. Add a dual tuner (sold separately) to the Grand Concerto audio distribution system, and you'll have a complete dual AM/FM/Weather tuner, an AM/FM/Weather and XM Satellite radio tuner, or a dual XM satellite radio tuner along with an auxiliary source distribution throughout your home. These tuners feature Radio Data Service (RDS), displaying artist and song information on your Concerto Control Pad. You can even control up to three of these tuners from any room in the house using a Remote Control for NuVo Tuners (sold separately). These IR remotes send signals through the integrated IR receivers in the connected keypads.

    Great product from Nuvo - integrates well with HAI OmniPro II for whole-home control. The keypads provide a lot of information and the keys are touch-sensitive (no rubber buttons to deal with). While it does come with multiple color trim panels, be aware the whole keypad area is black and cannot be changed. The nuvonet iPod dock, music server, and am/fm/xm tuners are fully controllable from any zone and provide 2-way communication to any touchpad. The units come with rack ears for standard 19" equipment racks and feet for setting on shelves.
