General Information
The Model 1166/56 High Definition AutoSelector™ complements a wide array of home theater signal sources,
video displays and audio systems. It performs selection of up to six input sources by infrared control, by a
unique AutoSelect™ process, RS-232 signals, or by manual selection. These inputs may be DVI (1166 only) or
component video and digital or analog audio, or combinations of these signal types, all delivered to the viewer
with their original vividness, brightness and clarity. A special feature of the Model 1166 is its built-in Component-to-DVI converter, which enables the DVI output to be active regardless of the type of video available at
the selected input.
!
This manual addresses Model 1166 and 1156 generally but also includes references to DVI capability
which is available only on the 1166. If you are installing a Model 1156, ignore the references to DVI.
In residences, the functionality of Model 1166 can be greatly enhanced by adding one or more Model 1176
High Definition Cat 5 Matrix Routers, each of which allow up to six remote component video outputs with
digital and analog audio. Remote Wallplates (Model 9878) allow individual source selection by IR remote
control; the output of each Wallplate can also be controlled by the Model 1166. The 1176 delivers component
video, digital audio, and analog audio to each 9878 Wallplate over two Cat 5 cables.
Professional venues, such as clubs and restaurants, can benefit by using Model 1176 to send selectable video
and/or audio to remote locations; but in applications where all displays carry the same content, the Model
1170 High Definition Cat 5 MultiDriver™ Expander drives multiple Wallplates with the same program content
as the 1166 main component video output.

Installation
You may wish to consult with a qualified custom electronics installer if you are inexperienced with DVI,
HDMI/HDCP, component video connections and compatibility. If you are installing 1170 or 1176, you should
be familiar with Cat 5 cable termination tools and techniques.
Note: This manual addresses Model 1166 and 1156 generally but also include references to DVI capability
which is available only on the 1166. If you are installing a Model 1156, ignore the references to DVI.
Note: Instruction steps calling for IR learning or other setup can be performed ahead of time using the
Model 1166PC Setup Application.
1. Pre-Setup. If the Model 1166PC Setup Application was used to configure a setup file (PC setup is recommended), plug the Flash Card containing the setup file into the memory slot in the upper right corner
of the back of the Model 1166. Temporarily apply power, go to the SETUP menu, choose SAVE/LOAD
FILE, and follow the instructions on the screen. If the 1166PC setup application is not already loaded onto
the flash memory card, call Audio Authority Technical Service at 800-322-8346.
2. Stacking. Follow these steps if you are installing this product in a stack containing Models 1170, 1176 or
other Audio Authority stacking models.
a. Lay the Model 1166 upside down on a protective surface, such as a terry cloth towel.
b. Remove the four feet and the bus port cover and save them and their attaching screws for later use.
c. Plug one end of the bus cable (purchased separately) into the connector visible through the bus
port—apply enough pressure with fingers or a wooden or plastic tool to assure that the plug is completely seated. This bus cable carries component video, digital audio and analog audio signals from
the 1166/56 to the 1170 or 1176 for distribution to 9878 Wallplates.
d. Turn the next product to be stacked upside down (e.g. Model 1170 or 1176), thread the bus cable
through its bus ports, and engage its four threaded studs with the four threaded holes in the Model
1166 formerly occupied by the feet.
e. Tighten the hex head screws in the bottom of the stacking product in sequence a few turns each, until
they are all snug.
f. Plug the bus cable into the connector like before. Continue this stacking procedure until all units
have been stacked. Always plug the last connector of the bus into the bottom unit, pushing any excess cable into the empty space inside the unit. View the bus through the bus port to be sure all plugs
are fully seated. To disconnect a bus plug, squeeze the side latches.
g. Install the bus port cover and feet you removed from Model 1166 on the bottom unit and turn the
stack right side up.
h. Set the Address dial on each Model 1176 (Model 1170 does not require addressing)–set the uppermost Model 1176 address to “A”, the next one to “B”, and so on.
i. Temporarily plug in the power supplies of all units to a plug strip so that
you can turn them all on at one time. The opening screen on the Model
1166 display will indicate that the unit is powered and how many Model
1176s have been recognized. If this number is different from the number
actually present, look for the bus not being fully plugged into a unit or
a unit incorrectly
addressed. Model
1170s are not
indicated on the
opening screen.

3. Rack Mount Adapters. Do these steps if you are installing this product or a stack of products in a 19-inch
equipment rack.
a. Remove the cover screws adjacent to the front panel of each product and use them to mount Model
1192 (for Model 1156/66) or Model 1191 (for Model 1170/76) rack adapters. Be sure to place a
spacer under the adapters at every screw location.
!
b. Use a straightedge to line up rack adapters on a stack of product before tightening the screws.
!
CAUTION! This product will be damaged if
spacers are not used on mounting screws.
IMPORTANT!
Do not mount adapters
without spacers
4. Setting in Place. Place the Model 1166 on its shelf or in the rack. If rack mounting, secure it to the rails
with the screws supplied with the rack adapter kits.
5. Model 1156 and 1166 Hookup. Connect sources, receiver and monitor in these steps.
a. If the AutoSelect feature is to be used, decide now if any devices should be connected directly to the
TV or receiver, particularly if the sources include a device that can record (see below).
b. Connect each source unit to its respective set of Model 1166 input jacks.
c. Use good quality cable and keep the runs under 6 feet if possible, especially for DVI and component
video connections—Audio Authority cables are recommended.
d. In the event of very long DVI cable runs, add an Audio Authority Model 1351 Repeater. See the
diagram on page 5.
Recording Devices and AutoSelect™
AutoSelect is an exclusive Audio Authority feature designed to automatically select the active input. The Model 1166 uses input
signal changes to determine which one of the six inputs to select. AutoSelect is ideal if most components will not be powered at
one time, because the 1166 looks for newly appearing inputs as one of its decision criteria.
However, another factor must also be considered–you will generally want to keep any source that records, such as a personal
video recorder or PVR, powered up so it can record even when not playing. When a PVR begins to record, it may fool the Model
1166 into selecting the PVR input, interrupting the device you actually intended to watch. If this happens in your system, the one
way to avoid the problem is to connect the outputs of a PVR directly to a home theater receiver or television instead of the 1166.
The PVR can then be chosen with infrared-controlled manual selection when desired.
High output noise level or other signal deficiencies from a source may cause the Model 1166 AutoSelect logic to fail. If this happens frequently, the best solution is to deactivate AutoSelect and use the Model 1105 IR Remote (included). You may also teach
the Model 1166 the desired codes of the IR remotes belonging to the sources.
10
Audio Authority Model 1156 and 1166 User Manual
e. If a source has HDMI output, add an Audio Authority Model 1312 HDMI-to-DVI Converter.
f. Connect either, but NOT BOTH optical and coaxial digital audio inputs. Connect all the other signals available from the source unit: DVI, component video and analog audio.
g. If a source has HDMI but not DVI output, connect Audio Authority Model 1312 between the source
and its DVI and digital audio jacks on the Model 1166. NOTE! Certain input signals may be used
by the Model 1166 for AutoSelect, even though they are not required by the monitor or audio system.
Connect every cable (but only one type of digital audio) to assure proper AutoSelect functionality.
h. Connect the television monitor and audio system to the Output jacks, using DVI only, or both DVI
and component video ports if desired. Use either optical or coaxial digital audio outputs, but NOT
BOTH. Use the analog audio output only if the audio system lacks a digital audio input. If the TV
monitor requires HDMI, connect an Audio Authority Model 1311 DVI-to-HDMI Converter. NOTE!
Some HDMI displays will not work correctly with a DVI signal converted to HDMI after a switching
device. If your display works properly at first, but fails to work after being turned off and then on,
contact the factory for assistance.
6. Model 1170 or 1176 Hookup. If Wallplates are a part of this system, connect them to the stack now.
a. Pull two lengths of good quality Category 5e or 6 UTP cable from the main system to each Wallplate
location. Good quality cable is important. Cheaper cables may have insufficient or unequal twist in
the pairs, causing noise to be picked up or the component video signals to be misaligned in time.
Mark each pair of cables with their destination and mark each cable of a pair A or B.
b. Install an RJ-45 plug on each end, using EIA-568B pairing (pins 1-2, 3-6, 4-5, 7-8). Check each
cable with a network cable tester.
c. Plug the pairs of cables into the RJ-45 jacks on the Model 1170s and/or Model 1176s. Plug cables A
and B into their respective jacks A and B.
d. For reference, make a list of each 1176 letter address and output number as it relates to the location
of each output. For example, “1176 B, Output 2 is connected to a Wallplate in the master bedroom”.
e. Plug an A/B pair of cables into each Model 9878 Wallplate. (Make certain A and B are connected
correctly BEFORE powering the system.)
f. Adjust the Cable Length Compensation control on each Wallplate according to the distance of that
unit from the head end. Set the dial to the nearest number of hundreds of feet of cable distance.
NOTE: Do not permanently mount the Wallplates until final testing is completed.
7. Initial Testing. Connect the furnished power supplies to their respective units, and plug the power supplies into a plug strip so that all units can be turned on at one time.
a. Check that the power indicators on the Model 1166, all stacked units and all installed Wallplates are
illuminated.
b. The opening screen on the Model 1166 display
indicates that the unit is powered and how many
Model 1176s have been recognized (Model 1170,
if used, is not indicated by the Model 1166). That
number is zero if the Model 1166 is used alone.
c. Apply power to all associated equipment. Touch the input selection keys to manually select sources
to verify video and audio signal integrity. NOTE! DVI switching may take a few seconds due to
HDCP handshaking.
d. If both component and DVI are connected to the television monitor, test both of the monitor’s signal
paths by switching its inputs. While viewing the TV’s DVI input, check that any component video
output sources are also displayed in DVI.

8. Real-time Setup. If the setups were not downloaded from the Flash Card (page 8), perform desired setups. For convenience, PC setup is recommended for most setup tasks, but all tasks may also be performed
using the front panel controls or remote control. To enter the Setup Menu, press and hold the knob, and
touch the Menu key (or simply press Menu on the remote). Use the knob to navigate to each setup option,
press the knob to select it, then follow on screen instructions (see page 22 for a Setup Menu Chart).
9. Remote Control Methods. The Model 1166 can select sources by three different remote control methods:
native remote (Model 1105), source or universal remotes (commands learned by 1156/66) or RS-232 commands. System controllers with RS-232 output can be connected to the serial port on the Model 1166. To
program such controllers, refer to Appendix B in this manual.
10. Infrared Control. Learned infrared control offers versatility and precision in source selection with a small
investment of time to teach the IR commands to the 1166. Some remote controls can load IR codes from a
PC after the codes have been downloaded from the remote control company’s website. Following are steps
to learn IR codes from source remotes.
a. If you are using standard handheld remote controls, ensure correct operation by eliminating sources
of light pollution such as direct sunlight, fluorescent light, etc.
b. If you are using a comprehensive IR control system, provide a contact emitter or blaster from the
infrared system to stimulate the Model 1166’s optical IR receiver, or patch the IR signal directly to
the IR input port on the rear panel using a 3.5mm cable (see page 7).
c. Use the Learn IR Codes setup screen to teach the Model 1166 one “key” code for each source unit.
For example, for a media player, let the Model 1166 learn its “play” key, then, when that key is
pressed to start the player, the Model 1166 will immediately select its output. On a set top box, one
might pick the “enter” key to prompt the Model 1166 to switch to that source when a channel has
been selected on it.
d. Audio Authority Model 1108 (sold separately) addresses the problem of controlling multiple identical sources from a Wallplate. The Model 1108, when used with individual IR emitters attached to the
sources, routes the IR command from a Wallplate to the appropriate source only.
e. Comprehensive IR controllers, such as the Pronto™, can learn the Model 1166’s IR codes along with
the codes of the sources and can output a macro containing source controls and Model 1166 selection controls. Follow the manufacturers instructions to teach such a controller numeric 1 through 6
from the Model 1105, as needed.
11. Remote Wallplates.
a. Plug an Infrared Control Receiver into the 3.5mm jack on each Wallplate used with a Model 1176
that is to have source selection capability. (Use only compatible receivers without power supply–see
Appendix A.)
b. Infrared commands returned from a Wallplate to Model 1176 immediately select the source to be
played on that Wallplate.
c. IR commands returned from a Wallplate to Model 1176 containing code intended for source units or
other equipment are repeated through the IR Output jack on the Model 1166. If a compatible infrared
control system is in place, and remote sensing of IR inputs from Wallplate locations is desired, patch
the IR Output jack to an input of the IR control system. Do not use IR connecting blocks other than
Model 1108 (see “Using Compatible Infrared Products” in Appendix A of this manual).
d. All IR commands returned from a Wallplate to Model 1170 are repeated only through the IR Output
jack and perform no function within the switching system.

Residential Operation
The Model 1166 allows you to select one of up to six video/audio sources to play through your home theater
system. In addition, if you have a whole-house component video distribution system using one or more Model
1176s, the source being displayed at each Wallplate can be controlled by the Model 1166 and, if the Wallplate
location is equipped with an infrared receiver, the source can be selected using an infrared remote control in
the room where the Wallplate is located. If your whole-house video distribution system uses Model 1170, all
Wallplate locations automatically display the same program content as the Main Output of the Model 1166.
Model 9878 Wallplates provide component video, digital audio, and stereo analog audio signal connections.
In Residential mode, the normal screen displays the custom long name of the selected source, the short names
of all six sources, which of these sources is currently
selected to the Main Output (highlighted short name),
which sources are currently active (overscored short
name), and whether Autoselect™ is On or Off. Please
ask your professional installer whether you should use AutoSelect™ or another method of source selection.
The Model 1105 Infrared Remote Control is used to control the Model 1166 and other brands or types of
remote control may have been enabled for this purpose as well.

1176 Matrix Router Connections
Multiple Wallplates may be connected to a Model 1166 with Model 1176 Matrix Routers. A single 1176 has
a capacity of six Wallplates. IR signals sent over Cat 5 through the 1176 are then sent through the 1166 and
retransmitted on the IR ouput jack. IR signals from the 1105 (or other enabled remotes) are interpreted by the
1176 and affect only the output of the Wallplate originating the IR. If the system has multiple sources sharing
the same IR code, a Model 1108 Multi-source IR Router should be used.
