Essentia®
Six-Source, Six-Zone Audio Distribution System
5/24/07 4:26:44 PM
Six Sound Sources, Six Listening Zones,
and the Next Wave in Digital Technology…
Welcome to Generation D.™
Generation D
Integrated, intelligent and incorporating
Generation D design protocol makes pure digital
audio a reality for your family. The digital
Essentia delivers energy conservation, lower
heat generation, and clear, precise sound from a
powerful multi-source home audio distribution
system — all with a price designed to make
everyone smile.
Customized Sound for Each Room in
Your House
Whether you thrill to a pulse-pounding bass or
soul-souring highs, now you can adjust equalization settings conveniently from the front of
Essentia’s new keypad to fit the natural acoustics
for each room. Find creating the ideal listening
experience, even in open living spaces (such as
the living, dining and kitchen area) is as easy as
the touch of a button using NuVo’s unique grouping feature. Instantly apply group mode to share
the same listening selection throughout multiple
zones of your choice.
Adapt With Flexibility
As your needs change, Essentia is designed
to grow with you, so even if you don’t need
a complex system now, you will always have
the option to add more in the future. Expand
the Essentia to twelve zones of audio with
the easy addition of the Essentia Expander or
upgrade to the NuVo Concerto system.
Control the Excitement
Essentia is taken to a whole new level of
wireless control with the new Learning
Remote Control. Manage your whole
home audio system and control up to six
additional devices for an All-In-One control
solution. The combinations and possibilities
are endless and are not limited to one zone
or even one remote. Add additional learning
remotes to zones where added wireless
control is desired.
A Better Solution
Now Essentia offers more than ever, for
the homeowner desiring more power in
more zones, while maintaining the same
clean and pure audio NuVo’s known for. An
elegant choice to fill the increased desire,
Essentia applies 40 watts of power per zone,
letting you rock or groove to six times the
selection in six different zones of the home.
Imagine listening to a classical CD in the
kitchen while your spouse is hearing the
rich, full sound of a DVD upstairs, your
daughter is listening to pop music in the
sunroom, and your son and his friends are in
the den, tuning into the big game.
Home never sounded so good.

(expandable to twelve zones)
• 40 watts of power per zone for high-quality sound
• Generation D digital amplifier for cooler operation and higher power output
• RS-232 serial port for home automation integration
• Built-in infrared receiver that blocks adverse interference of plasma displays, sunlight, or fluorescent lighting
• Fixed and variable line outputs for use with external higher power amplifiers when additional power is needed
• NEW keypad with convenient front-end control for equalization settings, source grouping, master mode, and volume reset

Simple, Seamless Installation
Essentia requires no programming, and like all
NuVo products, installation is a snap. Essentia’s
unique Allport® connection hub neatly conceals
all keypad wiring while integrating the entire
system seamlessly.
Home Automation Control
Essentia comes equipped for home automation
control, allowing you to connect your audio
distribution system to a complete home
automation system. NuVo products are designed
for compatibility, integrating smoothly into
other equipment and are considered to be among
the most uncomplicated systems for integration.
NuVo’s user-friendly keypad comes in one color
of your choice (white or black) to fit a wide
range of interior designs and is compatible
with UK standard trim plates.
