1173BK

AVAtrix Multi-Zone Audio Router with Volume Control

ITEM: 1173BK

Key Features:

  • Adds volume control to the AVAtrix Cat 5 Matrix
  • Outputs 6 stereo audio channels
  • Controls volume of sources independently for each zone
  • ExpressRamp for precise, smooth changes to a zone's volume
  • Rack mountable with included 1U rack-mount ears
  • Designed and built in Lexington, Kentucky, USA

 

Enabling easy integration of whole-house audio into an AVAtrix™ Cat 5 Matrix system, the 1173BK is a perfect complement to projects involving distributed audio. The Multi-Zone Audio Router's selectable "source" and "tracking" modes support a variety of whole-house audio configurations. Its volume control and source switching capabilities enable simple integration with a zone amplifier. See detailed application diagrams here.

When using traditional zone amplifiers without onboard volume control or switching, the 1173BK should be operated in Tracking Mode. The audio output from the source currently selected in a zone is routed to the corresponding audio output on the 1173BK. (Example: Zone 2 is viewing Source 4 - the 1173BK would output Source 4 audio from Output 2). The output is then connected to a separate amplifier used to drive speakers in each zone. This mode allows audio to be switched in sync with the video source being viewed in each zone.

When using amplifiers with their own volume control and signal processing, the 1173BK should be operated in Source Mode. The audio output from the each source is looped to the corresponding audio output on the 1173BK. (Example: Source 1 audio is replicated on 1173BK's Output 1). Audio remains live at each in-room Cat 5 receiver, while also interfacing to a third party whole house audio control system or multi-channel amplifier for processing, amplification, and room selection.

  • Adds volume control to the AVAtrix Cat 5 Matrix
  • Outputs 6 stereo audio channels (output depends on selection of Source and Tracking mode)
  • ExpressRamp enables precise, smooth control of each zone's volume
  • Controls volume of sources independently for each channel (analog only)
  • Rack mountable with included 1U rack-mount ears

Key Features

  • Adjusts volume level from 0 to -78dB
  • ExpressRamp enables precise, smooth control of each zone's volume
  • Works with simple zone amplifiers or sophisticated audio systems
  • Supports up to 18 AVAtrix zones in tracking mode, or up to 30 zones in source mode
  • Integrates seamlessly with third-party control systems from Control4, URC, RTI, and more
  • IR routing for audio system and/or source control signals from the zones
  • Connects to AVAtrix ribbon bus

Inputs/Outputs

  • Analog stereo audio (L/R) - 6 RCA
  • Digital audio (stereo or surround) - 6 RCA (volume control not available on digital outputs)
