INTRODUCTION
DESCRIPTION
Thank you for choosing the Russound ST2 Smart
Tuner. Whether you are adding radio to an existing system, expanding a CA Series system or
taking advantage of a CAV6.6 or CAM6.6 controller’s robust RNET® communication link, the
ST2 Tuner is designed to meet your needs.
The ST2 Tuner gives you two radios in one. The
two AM/FM tuner modules share one set of controls and display on the front of the unit, but
each runs independently. This arrangement
allows two different broadcasts at the same time
in a multi-room audio distribution system.
In addition to the traditional AM/FM broadcast
tuner function, the ST2 Tuner can store up to 72
favorites, or memory presets. These are stored
in groups of six called banks. There are six
banks for each tuner. Each preset and each bank
can be given a custom name of your choice.
The ST2 Tuner can be controlled from the front
panel or by the dedicated ST2-KP tuner keypad.
It can also be controlled by the ST2-RC IR remote
aimed at the tuner’s front panel IR receiver. The
ST2-RC IR codes can be learned into any IR
learning remote control for easy system integration. It can also be controlled by IR signals
received through the IR connections on the rear
panel from IR repeating system commonly used
in distributed audio systems.
If the ST2 Tuner is part of an RNET-enabled system such as the CAV6.6-S2 system, the tuner
can be controlled through an UNO-S2 keypad.
The ST2 Tuner also has an RS-232 port to support fully bi-directional integration into wholehouse control systems such as Crestron® and
AMX®.

(Rack mount ears included)
• Six banks of six memory presets each per
tuner for storing AM/FM station settings
(72 total presets)
• Two Favorite presets per tuner with ST2-RC
• Stereo or mono mode
• Local or distant mode
• Dedicated IR remote control
• Individual IR direct inputs for each tuner
• Front panel IR receiver
• Supports optional ST2-KP tuner keypads
• RNET connections send tuner frequency and

• RS-232 control and programming. User
settings can be backed up and restored.
INSTALLATION APPLICATIONS
RNET-enabled System
When the ST2 Tuner is used with an RNETenabled device such as the CAV6.6 and is connected to it through the Link In or Link Out port,
the tuner will be controlled by the CAV6.6
through the UNO-S2 keypad. Through RNET,
tuner information such as Tuner 1 or 2, station
frequency, preset names and AM/FM band is displayed on UNO-S2 keypads. An additional RNET
device can be connected to an existing ST2 by
using the Link Out of the first unit into the Link In
of the second unit.
Before using the ST2 tuner with a Russound
RNET controller, you must assign source
numbers to Tuner 1 and 2 in the ST2 Setup
Menu AND complete the controller’s Source
Setup procedure to identify the tuner as a
“Peripheral“ command type device.
INTRODUCTION
IR-controlled System
CA Series The ST2 Tuner can be controlled by infrared
commands received through the two IR connections on the rear panel. The ST2 contains two
individual tuners, which makes it act as two
sources in the CA system. There are two source
audio outputs and two IR connections - one for
each tuner in the ST2. You will need at least one
IR link cable (Russound P/N 09-0508) for these
connections. There are two unique IR code sets
for Tuner 1 and Tuner 2, which allow each to be
controlled independently from either IR connection. These codes can be learned from the ST2RC remote control into the CAS-RC remote control. If you are using an IR-controlled system from
another manufacturer, installation should be similar. The ST2 IR codes may be learned into many
other manufacturers’ remote controls that have
learning capability for unified control over the A-V
equipment.

ST2 SETUP AND CONNECTIONS
BASIC CONNECTIONS
Power
To power the tuner, connect the 12VDC external
power supply by inserting the power supply jack
into the power supply connection on the tuner’s
rear panel.
ST2-KP RJ-45 Connection Wiring
Audio Output
Connect one end of a dual RCA audio cable to
the Tuner 1 Audio Output connection. Keep proper channel identity. Attach the other end of the
RCA cables to the source input of the audio control system. Repeat the same procedure for the
Tuner 2 Audio Output.
IR Connections
The ST2 Tuner can be controlled by infrared
commands received through the two IR connections on the rear panel. The ST2 Tuner component contains two tuners, which must be set up
as two sources. There are two IR connections one for each tuner in the ST2. You will need two
IR link cables (Russound P/N 09-0508) for these
connections. There is a unique IR code set each
for Tuner 1 and Tuner 2, which allow each to be
controlled independently. These codes can be
learned from the ST2-RC remote into learningcapable remotes and keypads. If you are using
an IR-controlled system from another manufacturer, installation should be similar. The ST2 IR
codes may be learned into many other manufacturers’ remote controls that have learning capability for unified control over the A-V equipment.
RNET Connection
To link the ST2 to an RNET-compatible device,
use a CAT-5 passthrough patch cable with similar wiring terminations at each end. Connect one
end of the cable to the RNET Link In of the ST2
tuner, and connect the other end of the patch
cable to the RNET Link Out connection on the
RNET-compatible device.
ST2-KP Keypad to ST2 Connection
(Non-RNET System)
The ST2-KP connects to the ST2 tuner with
CAT-5 cable, using an RJ-45 (T568A) jack on the
tuner connection end of the cable. Be sure to
use the keypad ports for the ST2-KP and NOT
the RNET link ports. The ST2 tuner provides
connections for up to two ST2-KP keypads. An
SA-ZX3 Keypad Splitter can be used to add additional keypads.
Note: ST2-KP keypads are designed for use
with IR-controlled systems (non-RNET systems).
When the ST2 Tuner is a component of an RNET
system such as CAV6.6, the RNET-system
UNO-S2 keypads are used.
Rack Mount Installation
The ST2 can be mounted in a standard component rack using the rack ears provided. Line up
the rack ear’s two rows of screw holes with the
three screw holes on the side of the tuner. Use
the screws provided to secure the rack ears
onto the unit on both sides. The ST2 tuner
should not be installed above a high heat-producing component such as a power amplifier.

ST2 TUNER PROGRAMMING
ST2 TUNER SETUP MENU
ST2 Tuner Setup Menus
Note: The Setup Menu procedures must be performed from the ST2 Tuner front panel.
The ST2 Tuner Setup Menus provide setup and naming procedures for the ST2 main chassis, and
each AM/FM tuner module. These procedures include source number assignments, assigning a custom name to a memory preset or a bank, choosing a region for AM/FM operation (US or Euro), factory initialization and system information.
If the ST2 is used with a non-RNET system, the ST2 can be connected and operated without any
setup programming. Follow the setup menus if custom names are desired, or for system information.
If the ST2 is used with an RNET system such as CAV6.6, the following minimum setup must be performed for the ST2 to be properly controlled by the RNET controller.
1. ST2 Chassis Setup Menu - Assign source numbers to Tuner 1 and Tuner 2.
2. RNET Controller Source Setup Menu - Configure the source numbers assigned in step 1 for Tuners
1 and 2, and assign command type PERIPHERAL.
NOTE: Once the programming procedures are completed, cycle power first to the Tuner and then to
the RNET controller (must be powered on last) to establish a connection.
ST2 Chassis Setup Menu
Source Number (Chassis)
The Source Number procedure permits Tuner 1
and Tuner 2 to be assigned the proper source
numbers to be used in an RNET system.
Note: The source number must be assigned as
PERIPHERAL in the RNET controllers.
Note: Each of the ST2 modules can be configured as source number “unassigned” if the module is used in another system (e.g., home theater) or will not be used as a source in the RNET
system.
1. Enter the Setup Menu by pressing and holding
the TNR SEL button.
2. TUNER SETUP appears. Press MEM Up/Down

7. Press BAND to select the source number.
8. Repeat the process for the next tuner.
9. Press TNR SEL to exit the Source Number
menu.
Update Firmware (Chassis)
The Update Firmware procedure allows the ST2
tuner’s OS firmware to be updated. The procedure is performed using a DB9 serial cable with
one end connected to the RS-232 port on the
back of the tuner and the other connected to a
PC or laptop. If an OS firmware update is available, it can be obtained through the Document
Center at www.russound.com.

When the ST2 Tuner is used with the CAV6.6 or other RNET controller, it is configured as an RNET
command type PERIPHERAL and is connected via the RNET bus. This makes the tuner behave as a
fully integrated device with UNO keypad support. Each tuner must be set up with a unique source
number (1 - 6) or unassigned. An unassigned tuner is not controlled by the RNET bus.
Key Function Note: When using the tuner with the CAV6.6 or other RNET system, do not reassign
keypad and remote buttons for tuner control in the controller Key Configuration Menu. When the tuner
is assigned the PERIPHERAL command type in the controller Setup Menu, key assignments and functions are automatically assigned and will operate as shown in the preceding UNO-S2 keypad and
