Crestron Adagio™ AADS-XM
Audio Distribution
System with XM Satellite Radio
The Adagio AADS-XM Audio Distribution System delivers a complete, low-cost
solution for high-performance multi-room audio distribution. Right out of the box,
the AADS provides sophisticated audio signal routing, processing, and
amplification for up to 6 rooms, controllable from its LCD-driven front panel and a
choice of room controllers.
Multi-Room Audio—The AADS-XM supports up to 6 sets of stereo room speakers,
allowing listeners in each room to listen selectively to any of 6 different stereo
sources. Its integrated multi-channel power amplifier delivers a robust 45 watts per
channel to all rooms. Without requiring any programming, the AADS-XM can easily
be expanded to support a total of 12 rooms by adding an AAE Audio Expander. Or,
as many as 24 rooms can be handled using 3 AAE's with simple setup provided by
Crestron Adagio Composer software.
Front Panel Control—The AADS-XM's front panel provides for controlling audio to
a houseful of speakers, with custom naming of rooms, groups, and sources
facilitated on the LCD display. The 6 room select buttons can also be custom
labeled using Crestron Engraver software.
Versatile Room Controls—A choice of basic 12-button keypads or the advanced
APAD Wall Mount LCD Controller enables versatile control of the AADS-XM in
every room. A keypad provides the essential controls for adjusting volume,
selecting sources, and toggling up and down through tracks and radio channels.
For more elegant control, the APAD provides true feedback for display of audio
sources, radio stations, CD titles, artists, and tracks by name, plus audio settings
and many other parameters.
Satellite Radio and MP3 Audio Servers—Built-in AM/FM and XM Satellite Radio
tuners let listeners in different rooms each enjoy their own choice of music, news,
sports and talk. With XM's digital signal, plus RDS/RBDS data on the FM signal,
the AADS-XM enables the display of the full radio station name and other detailed
information about the song or program that you're listening to.
In addition to radio, 4 line-level inputs are provided to accommodate external audio
sources including Crestron's AAS Audio Server and CEN-IPOD Apple® iPod®
Connect. Plug-and-play compatibility with the AAS and CEN-IPOD delivers instant
access to an entire collection of music from any room in the house with fullybidirectional communications for browsing by album, artist, and song title.
2-Series Ethernet Control System—Adagio brings Crestron's industry-leading
Total Home Technology to homes of any size and budget. At the heart of the
AADS-XM is the powerful 2-Series control engine. With both Cresnet and Ethernet
connectivity, plus custom programmability using Crestron SystemBuilder™
software, the AADS-XM allows nearly limitless expansion and customization using
Crestron's entire line of touchpanels, wireless remotes, and hundreds of other
devices. The built-in Web server with native e-Control®2 XPanel support enables
full remote control over IP from computers and PDA devices, as well as remote
diagnostics and updates. Built-in IR and RS-232 ports are included to interface the
AADS-XM with non-Crestron devices from CD changers to security systems.
Home Automation and Integration—More than just an audio distribution system,
the AADS-XM can actually grow as part of a complete home automation solution
supporting all of Crestron's Cresnet and infiNET controllable dimmers, shade
controllers, thermostats, and so much more. | 800.237.2041
