Audac releases R2 multi-zone system

AUTHOR: Inavate

Audac says its R2 Multi-Zone audio distribution system boasts a large number of extension modules and configuration modes.

It is equipped with eight analogue line inputs and eight analogue line outputs as standard. These can be freely routed by means of the digital audio matrix, which is based on a powerful DSP processor.

The DSP processor makes it possible to integrate freely programmable digital filters and to generate complex audio signals. It also features a fully functional web based user interface. Without any additional software the amplifier can be fully operated by any device which is connected to an Ethernet or Local LAN network.

The real-time clock makes allows the creation of time schedules with up to 256 pre-programmed events, single and recurring, and four priority inputs are also provided.

In addition to the standard features of the R2, there are various optional modules available whereby the R2 can be expanded to meet the requirements for each specific situation.
 
There are two different types of wall panels available. The simple version is intended to operate the standard functions or the R2 for one specific output such as input signal selection and volume control. While the advanced version adds the ability to connect Line and Microphone signal sources, and transfers the data to the R2 Matrix.

Various internal expansion modules are a fibre interconnection module, which make it possible to cascade multiple R2’s to an nearly unlimited number of output zones (999x8), a touchscreen interface, a voice file interface and a power amplifier kit.

Features:
 Eight inputs and eight outputs with freely routable signal path
 Easy extendable by Wall panels and cascading (Fibre)
 Powerful DSP processor
 Programmable Lowpass, Highpass & Bandpass filters
 White noise, Pink noise and Sine generator
 Web based user interface (Without additional software)
 Timer scheduling with up to 256 presets (Single and Recurring)
 Four priority inputs
 S/PDIF in- and outputs (optical and coaxial)
 RS232 interface for peripherals (AMX, Crestron, …)
 Fibre interconnection modules for cascading (optional)
 Touchscreen interface (optional)
 16 x 40 Watt power amplifier kit (optional)
 Voice file interface (optional)
