    Digital Amplified Touch Pads
    This whole home audio distribution system includes four digital amplified touch pads. A touch pad is required to control zone in the system and each touch pad provides Source Selection, Volume, Mute and Power control as well as control of all connected audio sources with its built-in IR receiver. Additionally, it provides amplification for the zone's speakers using an on-board 30 watts per channel digital amplifier. A soft, modern indigo blue light brings each touch pad to life.

    Easy installation and use. Do not hesitate to self install rather than use professional installers.
