Basic Multi-Room Audio System

The basic multi room audio system is a 4-source and 6-zone audio system with enough capability and flexibility to be at home in almost any application. Built-in amplifiers provide 30W/ch to each zone. Controlled by optional keypads or an optional IR remote, the multi room audio receiver will provides easy, logical control of both the sound in each room and the system’s audio sources. Keypad-triggered macros can accomplish complex system functions with a single button push. This system will allow you to have detailed control over your source equipment but will not provide any information back to the keypads. Up to four receivers can be “daisy-chained”, allowing the original 4 sources to be distributed in up to 24 zones.

Adagio by Crestron

The new featured product from Crestron is the Adagio Entertainment System (AES), which delivers a complete, cost-effective solution for high-performance multi-room audio distribution. This system will allow you to have a Crestron controlled home at a price point that has not been available in the past.

Right out of the box, the AES supports up to 6 sets of stereo room speakers, allowing listeners in each room to listen selectively to any of 10 different stereo sources. Its integrated multi-channel power amplifier delivers a robust 45 watts per channel to all rooms. Without minimal programming, the AES can easily be expanded to support a total of 12 rooms by adding an Adagio Audio Expander (AAE). Or, as many as 24 rooms can be handled using 3 AAE's.

A choice of basic 12-button keypads or the advanced APAD Wall Mount or LCD Controller enables versatile control of the AES in every room. A keypad provides the essential controls for adjusting volume, selecting sources, and toggling up and down through tracks and radio channels. For more elegant control, the APAD actually extends the many functions of the AES front panel to each room, providing true feedback for display of audio sources, radio stations, CD titles, artists, and tracks by name, plus audio settings and many other parameters.

AM/FM, Satellite Radio, and MP3 Music Servers

The Adagio system will allow up to 3 dual radio tuner cards can be installed in the AES to enable combinations of up to 6 AM/FM, XM and SIRIUS Satellite Radio tuners, letting listeners in different rooms each enjoy their own choice of music, news, sports and talk. With satellite's digital signal, plus data from the FM signal, the AES enables the display of the full radio station name and other detailed information about the song or program that you're listening to. The AES comes with one tuner card included.

In addition to radio, ten line-level inputs are provided to accommodate external audio sources including Crestron's AAS Audio Server and a Interface for Apple iPod®. Plug-and-play compatibility with the AAS* and CEN-IDOC* delivers instant access to an entire collection of music from any room in the house with fully-bidirectional communications for browsing by album, artist, and song title.

The power of this system is that’s it’s more than just an audio distribution system, the AES can actually grow as part of a complete home automation solution supporting all of Crestron's Cresnet® and infiNET™ controllable lighting dimmers, shade controllers, thermostats, and so much more.
