Essential Info

The NuVo Essentia EG6 is the ideal choice for a premiere whole-house audio distribution system at an affordable price. It can deliver remarkably clear sound from up to six different audio sources out to six different listening zones, at up to 40 Watts per zone. With each zone able to listen to the same source or different sources at the same time, the Essentia is flexible enough to meet the diverse taste and lifestyle of each family member. The new control pad interface has a flush mount design, pressure sensitive tactile buttons and an OLED display that provided full metadata feedback for each zone. Additionally, the keypads are water resistant, so they can be used in certain outdoor applications. The NuVo Essentia Audio Distribution System gives you the power of choice, blending the advanced technology of superior home sound with the simplicity of a user-friendly design, all at a price that's easy to live with. Home never sounded so good!

With the addition of speakers, wire, and audio source equipment, all sold separately, you can enjoy the power of the NuVo Essentia EG6 in no time.

    Expandable System
    For large homes or applications, the NuVo Essentia EG6 can be expanded from six zones to 12 zones. This requires the addition of a NuVo Essentia EG6 Expander, which includes a zone controller/amplifier for six additional zones. NuVo Essentia single gang OLED control pads can be added to the Expander, depending on how many zones (up to six) you wish to add. The NuVo Essentia EG6 Expander and the NuVo Essentia single gang OLED control pads are sold separately.

    Control System Locally With Wall-Mounted Touch Pads
    You won't need to run to the main system every time you want to change the volume or source of a zone. With the new OLED control pad, you can manually change the volume or source you want to hear, directly from the zone it controls. You can browse by station, play list, track, artist, album, or genre, as all of the audio information displays what's playing when it's playing. Each keypad has a built-in infrared receiver, offering the option of using an IR remote as well.

    Play Your iPod Through Your NuVo Essentia EG6
    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 Essentia EG6 to the next level by adding NuVo's smart components, which provide full display feedback and control of connected sources through each Essentia OLED 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 Essentia OLED 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.
