  • Six Audio Sources to Six Zones Throughout the Home
    The NuVo Essentia Audio Distribution System offers the power to choose from six different sound sources. Switching between sources is as easy as the touch of a button. You can even listen to multiple sound sources in six different zones simultaneously! Imagine listening to a classical CD in the kitchen while your spouse is hearing the rich, full sound of a DVD upstairs. Meanwhile your daughter is listening to pop music in the sun room, and your son and his friends are in the den, tuning into the big game. That's the power of choice.

    Powerful Sound Output
    Although the NuVo Essentia Audio Distribution System is rated for 40 watts of power per zone (20 watts per left and right channel) for high-quality sound reproduction, it still offers a line output for use with external amplifiers when additional power is needed.

    Customize Sound for Every Room
    Whether you thrill to a pulse-pounding bass or soul-soaring highs, the unique equalization feature on NuVo keypads allows you to adjust the sound system to optimize the natural acoustics of each individual room.

    Integrate Your Keypads for Simplified Use
    If you like, the NuVo system keypads can be grouped. This enables open living spaces (such as the living room, dining room and kitchen) to share a listening choice, while still permitting individual volume control. Not only that, but the special "All Off" feature allows you to shut down your NuVo system with the press of a single button.

    Hand Control in the Palm of Your Hand
    NuVo Essentia comes standard with the NuVo RCI Remote (including batteries), giving you complete control of your NuVo system, all in one simple control. The keypads include white, ivory and almond faceplates and 36 pre-printed replacement buttons.

    Simple, Seamless Integration
    The revolutionary EZ-Port neatly conceals the individual connections for each listening zone in the wall. A single wire connection from the EZ-Port to the back of the Essentia amplifier cleanly and seamlessly integrates the entire system.

    Other features include:
    • Audio source grouping capability for today's open floor architecture
    • Built-in infrared receiver with a standard remote for easy wireless control
    • Mute function allows you to quickly silence the system when the phone or doorbell rings

    Expandable to a 12-Source, 12-Zone System
    To expand to a 12-Source/12-Zone system, you'll need the Essentia Expander Package, which includes an amplifier, six keypads (also with multiple faceplates), a remote control with batteries and connecting cables.

    Add a Dual Tuner for Total Flexibility
    Add a dual tuner (sold separately) to your 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. 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.

    Expand With Extra Emitters
    Along with keypads, we also offer Single IR Emitters (#8270IR, sold separately) made specifically for use with NuVo systems. These emitters are attached to the end of a 10-ft. cord and plug into to the back of the amplifier for remote operation of the original source units from IR-equipped wall controllers. You may use as many as six IR emitters per amplifier.

    Can Be Easily Rack-Mounted
    Want to mount your amplifier into a Middle Atlantic 19" equipment rack? No problem! Just attach optional Rackmount Ears (sold separately) and you'll be able to attach it to a rackmount system without the expense of a custom faceplate.

    Buy as a Kit and Save
    The NuVo Essentia Audio Distribution System requires cat. 5e cable and speaker wire. You can purchase these items separately or as a kit.

    Review of 8270ced Review by rman
    Review of 8270ced

    I am not happy with the Nuvo essentia. Main reason is connectors at the rear are extremely flimsy. There are tiny screws through which you need to insert speaker wire and it gets loose over time and you lose sound and wont realize for a while because there are so many speakers out there. Connectors are so flimsy that they flex slightly and if you use even minor effort you can yank em off. The Niles seems to have stronger connectors.
