Installation
Locate the Encoder with the remote source. Install CAT-5
or CAT-5e cable between the remote source location and
the system controller, up to 300 feet (90 m).
Crimp an RJ-45 connector on the source end of the CAT5 cable, following the T568A standard as shown. Plug
the connector into the RNET A/V jack on the Encoder. (If
desired, use modular wall plates and RJ-45 patch cables
for a neater appearance. Punch down the CAT-5 per the
T568A standard and use a straight-through patch cable
between the Encoder and the wall plate.)
RJ-45 Using T568A
Wiring Standard
Setup for RNET Control
Note: For RNET control of the remote source, both the
source equipment and the system controller must be
RNET capable. If the RNET controller does not have an
RNET A/V jack, you will need to use an RAVD1 Decoder
at the controller to receive signals from the Encoder.
1. Connect RNET source equipment. Using the supplied RJ-45 patch cable, connect from an RNET Link jack
on the source equipment to the RNET Link jack on the
Encoder. Use the supplied RCA patch cable to connect
from the source equipment’s audio and video outputs to
the Encoder’s inputs.
2. Connect Encoder to RNET system. Crimp an RJ-45
connector on the system end of the CAT-5 cable, following the T568A standard as shown. With the RNET system
turned off, plug the connector into the RNET A/V source
input jack on the RNET system controller or RAVD1
Decoder. (If using a wall plate, punch down the CAT-5 per
the T568A standard and use a straight-through patch
cable between the system and the wall plate.)
Note: Do not plug the CAT-5 cable into an RNET Link
jack. It must be plugged into an RNET A/V jack on
either the system controller or the RAVD1 Decoder.
3. Connect Decoder to RNET system. If using an
RAVD1 Decoder, use a straight-through RJ-45 patch
cable to connect from either RNET Link jack on the
Decoder to any unused RNET Link jack on the system or
an RNET source component. Use RCA patch cables to
connect from the Decoder’s audio and video outputs to
inputs on the RNET system controller.
Note: Do not connect the Decoder’s IR input. Doing so
will disable RNET for the entire system.
Setup for IR Control
Note: If the system controller does not have an RNET
A/V jack, you will need to use an RAVD1 Decoder at
the controller to receive signals from the Encoder.

1. Connect source equipment. Attach an IR emitter
to the infrared sensor on the source equipment and plug
the emitter into the IR OUT jack on the Encoder. (Or use
an IR link cable or mono patch cable with 1/8-inch [3.5
mm] TS connectors to connect from the Encoder to the
source equipment’s IR input jack.) Use the supplied RCA
patch cable to connect from the source equipment’s
audio and video outputs to the Encoder’s inputs.

2. Connect Encoder to multiroom system. Crimp an
RJ-45 connector on the system end of the CAT-5 cable,
following the T568A standard as shown. With the system
turned off, plug the connector into the RNET A/V jack on
the system controller or RAVD1 Decoder. (If using a wall
plate, punch down the CAT-5 per the T568A standard
and use a straight-through patch cable between the
system and the wall plate.)
The Russound RAVE1 is fully guaranteed against all defects in materials
and workmanship for two (2) years from the date of purchase. During this
period, Russound will replace any defective parts and correct any defect in
workmanship without charge for either parts or labor. For this warranty to
apply, the unit must be installed and used according to its written instructions. If service is necessary, it must be performed by Russound. The
unit must be returned to Russound at the owner’s expense and with prior
written permission. Accidental damage and shipping damage are not considered defects, nor is damage resulting from abuse or from servicing by
an agency or person not specifically authorized in writing by Russound.
Note: Do not plug the CAT-5 cable into an RNET Link
jack. It must be plugged into an RNET A/V jack on
either the system controller or the RAVD1 Decoder.
3. Connect Decoder to system. If using an RAVD1
Decoder, use RCA patch cables to connect from the
Decoder’s outputs to source inputs on the system.
RNET system. Use a straight-through RJ-45 patch cable
to connect from either RNET Link jack on the Decoder
to any unused RNET Link jack on the system or an RNET
source component.
Note: Do not connect the Decoder’s IR input. Doing so
will disable RNET for the entire system.
Non-RNET system. Use an IR link cable or mono patch
cable with 1/8-inch (3.5 mm) TS connectors to connect
from the system’s IR output to the Decoder’s IR input.
Final Steps
1. Power Encoder. Plug the power supply into an AC
power receptacle and connect its output lead to the
power jack on the Encoder. If using an RAVD1 Decoder,
power it up as well.
This warranty does not cover: damage caused by abuse, accident, misuse, negligence, or improper installation or operation; power surges and
lightning strikes; normal wear and maintenance; products that have been
altered or modified; any product whose identifying number, decal, serial
number, etc. has been altered, defaced or removed.

RAVE1
RNET A/V Encoder
Instruction Manual
Overview
The RAVE1 RNET A/V Encoder enables the use of a remote source with a Russound RNET® or other multiroom
audio-video system. It connects to the source equipment
and sends audio and video signals to the multiroom
system over a single CAT-5 cable. It also provides either
RNET or infrared control of the source equipment.
Housed in a compact surface-mount metal box, the
RAVE1 provides connectors for RNET Link, IR emitter,
stereo audio, and composite video. A special RJ-45 jack
connects through the CAT-5 cable to either an RAVD1
RNET A/V Decoder or an RNET A/V-enabled multiroom
controller at the system end.
The RAVE1 comes with a 12 VDC power supply and
patch cables for connecting to the source equipment.
Features
• Enables remote location of an audio-video source for a
multiroom system
• Provides RNET control and feedback with an RNET
remote source and multiroom system
• Provides IR control of a non-RNET remote source
2. Turn on source and system. Power up the remote
source and the system. Select the remote source at a
system keypad or touchscreen and begin playing the
source. You should hear it playing through the system.
