DAS-T0804/8-SIG Tango Audio Controllers
Overview
Tango Audio Controllers - Product Specifications (Cont.)
The Tango Series of Audio Controllers allow centralized control of common audio
equipment for up to 4 or 8 independently controlled audio zones per Controller. Each
Tango Controller is capable of controlling the source via Metreau Keypad, RS-232, IP
address (via the optional Ethernet Module), SWT Speakers (equipped with IR
receivers), or the MIO R-1 AUDIO IR remote control. Other sources such as Satellite
Receivers, CD Players, MP3 Players, and any other IR Controlled audio source can
be patched into the RCA source inputs on the rear panel (FIG. 1).

Function/Navigation
Buttons
5 pushbuttons allow for front panel programming, selection
of sources, tuning AM/FM radio stations, or Sirius satellite
radio stations (when equipped with the optional Sirius and/
or AM/FM Tuner Card).
IR Receiver
This is where you must aim the remotes from your audio
source components so the Controller can learn and emulate those commands.
Displays information necessary during the programming
steps and afterward is the display to indicate information
about the source input activity.
Other AMX Equipment: • Rack-Mount Installation Kit (FG1101-60)
Rack-Mounting
Tango units occupy two rack spaces in a standard 19" equipment rack. Rack mounting
brackets are supplied with the optional Rack-Mount Installation Kit (FG1101-60).
Note: Exercise extreme care when lifting or moving Tango units within the rack to
avoid injury. It is recommended that you seek the assistance of another person when
rack mounting Tango units.
1.
Attach the rack mounting brackets to each side of the Tango unit using the four
screws (10-32 Panhead Phillips - supplied with the Tango unit) for each bracket.
Note: To prevent injury the Tango unit must be securely attached to the rack in
accordance with the installation instructions. ALWAYS use the special rack
mount brackets supplied and high quality fixing screws to ensure the Tango unit
is installed in the rack correctly.
2.
Place the Tango unit in the equipment rack and hold steady.
3.
Secure the Tango unit in the rack using the mounting holes.
Note: DO NOT stand other units directly on top of the Tango unit when it is rack
mounted, as this will place excessive strain on the mounting brackets.
Ventilation
To ensure that the rack enclosure is adequately ventilated, there must be a minimum
of 3" all around the Tango unit.
Sufficient airflow must be achieved (by convection or forced-air cooling) to satisfy the
ventilation requirements of all the items of equipment installed within the rack.
Speaker Wire Technology (SWT)
Speaker Wire Technology (SWT) allows both data and audio signals to travel over the
same four conductor wire. This remarkable technology removes the need for control
wire since the control and audio signals are shared on the same wire. The reliability
and simplicity of this system has been proven for years. AMX Distributed Audio is the
only company that offers a “retrofit solution”, one which allows the replacement of
volume controls with AMX Distributed Audio keypads and Controllers, giving full
control over the sources. Additionally, the versatility of SWT also allows AMX
Distributed Audio products to be connected where the control wire has been run
separately from the speaker cable.
Cabling Instructions
Connecting SWT Keypads to the Tango Controller
CAUTION: Be sure to check for any wiring restrictions required by the electrical code
in your area.
This installation uses low voltage cabling similar to telephone and alarm wiring, and
as such does not commonly have very many restrictions on their installation.
However rules may vary in different regions.
Metreau keypads connect to the 4-pin connectors labelled Zone 1, 2, 3 etc. on the
rear panel (FIG. 5):

Up to 8 audio devices can be connected to the Tango Controllers via the Sources
INPUT and OUTPUT RCA connectors on the rear panel (see FIG. 1 on page 1).
Industry standard RCA connectors provide line-level input and output connections for
devices such as CD, DSS, MP3 players etc.
Each audio input has a corresponding buffered output used to connect the audio
sources to additional Tango Controllers or to other devices that share the audio
sources (FIG. 2).

The Tango Controller is cabled using standard 4-conductor speaker cable originating

wire in a single continuous run.

Connecting IR Emitters
SWT connectors on keypad
Tango Controllers provide eight 3.5mm mono output jacks for CC-NIRC NetLinx IR
Emitter Cables (supplied). Commands received by the Tango Controller from the
Metreau keypads are processed and sent via the IR Emitter Cable to the controlled
device.
CC-NIRC NetLinx IR Emitter Cables attach to the controlled audio device’s remote
control (IR) sensor with double sided tape (included), and connect to the Tango
Controller via the IR OUTPUT jacks on the rear panel (FIG. 3).

Tango Controllers can be accessed by SWT Metreau keypads (DAS-MET6SRC and
DAS-MET-NUM) to provide basic transport control, source selection and volume up
and down, as well as enhanced controls including direct access capability, favorite’s
source selection, zone grouping, alarm clock setting, and Keypad lockout.
Note: The Matrix Pushbutton (DAS-KP series) and LCD Keypads (DAS-KP-LCD
series) are also supported by Tango Controllers.
