The Niles Audio SMS-10 Rack-Mount Speaker Distribution / Impedance Matching System is a great way to send audio out to 10 pairs of speakers (20 speakers total) from one receiver or amplifier. The autoformer matching system maintains a nominal 8 ohm load on the receiver or amplifier and prevents the loss of power associated with conventional resistive protection methods. Each of the up to 10 pairs of speakers can have a nominal impedance anywhere between 4 and 16 ohms. Programming pins are included on each autoformer, making installation easy and specific to the number of speakers being used. The Niles Audio SMS-10 was designed for use with a standard 19" wide equipment rack and will only take up 2 rack spaces.
This product is also available with a sealed metal cover.

Review of 6725
Purchased the SMS-10 to place in a rack for the distribution of a whole house speaker system. Previously I had used the A/B speakers switch to power the system. When the SMS-10 was in place the difference was remarkable. The sounds were clearer, better tones and quite frankly louder without turning up the volume. The down side however was after a couple of weeks one side of the system stopped working. I contacted customer service from Smarthome and they were absolutely fantastic. I cannot say enough good thing about the service I received. The item was replaced and the new SMS-10 is functioning perfectly. I would have given this product five stars if it were not for the failure of the first one. With electronics sometimes there is a problem the test is how the problem gets resolved. Smarthome gets "five stars".
