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.

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. Warranty 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. Russound sells products only through authorized dealers and distributors to ensure that customers obtain proper support and service. Any Russound product purchased from an unauthorized dealer or other source, including retailers, mail order sellers and online sellers will not be honored or serviced under existing Russound warranty policy.

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. 5 Forbes Road, Newmarket NH 03857 USA Tel 603.659.5170 • Fax 603.659.5388 www.russound.com 3. Program multiroom system. Follow the multiroom system’s programming instructions to set up the remote source for control from the keypads and touchscreens. Copyright © 2007 Russound. All rights reserved.
