Next Generation Multizone Has arrived
Building on Russound’s legendary reliability, simplicity, and sound quality, the new
multizone controllers now offer lightning fast response time, an array of digital inputs,
and quicker configuration. The evolutionary MCa-88X, an 8-source, 8-zone
controller, features built-in XStream™ Technology, enabling popular streaming
content from the cloud, home network, tablets and phones—all from a single
component. The intuitive MyRussound™ app conveniently controls the entire
system and displays metadata using tablets and phones. In addition, a wide
assortment of keypads, touchscreens and hand-held remotes ensures optimum
control for any location. Engineered for flexible configuration and easy integration,
the controllers satisfy any design challenge. The system allows
multiple controllers to be combined to create up to 48
independent zones. The new Russound line of multizone
controllers delivers the perfect balance of popular music
content, audio performance and optimal control.
