Essential Info

The A-BUS CAT5 Whole-House Audio System is an innovative multi-room audio technology that enables you to have music in any or every room in your home. But unlike traditional audio distribution methods, which can be expensive and complicated, A-BUS is distributed throughout the home with affordable, easily-accessible Cat. 5 cable. The kit includes one of each: Single-source Distribution Module, Panel Distribution Module, Universal ABUS Remote Control, 24V DC Power Supply, Dual IR Emitter, and 4 Amplified Keypads (see decription of each on the details and specifications below). A-BUS delivers control into the hands of the user. The volume in each room can be individually controlled. Once a house is wired for A-BUS, you can choose to have music installed in any room - now or in the future.

Note: In-wall speakers, CAT5 cable, speaker cable and IR emitters all sold separately.

    Simple and Easy to install. Out-of-the box the system performs! For the cost of this starter; I recommend it for Quality "easy listening" use.

    I am completely thrilled with my system. The installation was a snap and the directions were easy to follow. I would rate the 8345 with five stars out of five.*****

    Install was a breeze. The instructions could use a little updating though as the wiring diagrame that comes with the Abus is a little misleading. Use RJ-45 on all connections where possible and you don't get into problems.

    Really great system for my application. Does a really fine job getting sound where I need it. There are some discrepancies between the user manual and what features actually exist on the system, but they were minor for my needs. Installation and setup was pretty bulletproof, though I did have some difficulty on one of the punchdown CAT5 connections that took quite a few conversations with Channel Vision technical support to diagnose and I'm still unclear about what I did wrong since the other 40+ connections were fine. The Channel Vision technical support team is AWESOME.
