IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Danger
Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause a permanent
hearing loss. Individuals vary considerably to noise induced hearing
loss but nearly everyone will lose some hearing if exposed to sufficiently
intense noise for a sufficient time. The U.S. Government's
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specified
the following permissible noise level exposures:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
DURATION PER DAY (HOURS) 8 6 4 3 2 1
SOUND LEVEL (dB)
6.
7.
90 93 95 97 100 103
8.
According to OSHA, any exposure in the above permissible limits could
result in some hearing loss. Ear plugs or protectors in the ear canal or over
the ears must be worn when operating this amplification system in order to
prevent a permanent hearing loss. If exposure in excess of the limits as
put forth above, to insure against potentially harmful exposure to high
sound pressure levels, it is recommended that all persons exposed to
equipment capable of inducing high sound pressure levels, such as this
amplification system, be protected by hearing protectors while this unit is in
operation.

The Essentia System uses CAT5 cable for keypad control and either two or four-conductor 16-gauge speaker wire. All the wire is
“homerun” from each zone to the location of the Essentia amplifier and Audio Source equipment.
Complete CAT5 Crimping Instructions
The NuVo audio systems require CAT5, unshielded, twisted
pair (UTP), for communication between the
keypads/Display Pads and the main amplifier unit. Each
end of the wire is terminated with an RJ45 connector.
Top view with
tab down.
The Essentia System can accommodate 2,000 total feet of
CAT5 cable. For the most reliable operation, it is best that
no single run of CAT5 exceeds 250 feet.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Pair 2
The correct wiring scheme for the CAT5 cable is standard
EIA/TIA 568A. Properly terminating the CAT5 cable is
crucial for the operation of the system. It is very important
to use a good quality crimp tool, and test each end to end
run with a CAT5 wire tester to insure that your system
operates flawlessly, fig.1.

6. Orange
7. Brown Stripe
8. Brown
Step-by-Step Crimping Instructions:
1.
Strip a 2 to 3 inch portion of the insulation,
exposing the 4 twisted pairs.
2.
Untwist the wires and fan them out
individually. Arrange the wires into the
correct color scheme as shown in Fig. 1.
3.
Flatten the wires in their correct order, and trim
them evenly across the top. Most crimp tools have
a wire trimmer built-in. It is best to trim the wires
to about ½” in length.
4.
While holding the wires flat between your thumb
and forefinger, insert the wires into the RJ45
connector, so each is in its own slot. Push the wire
into the RJ45, so all 8 conductors touch the end of
the connector. The insulation jacket should
extend beyond the crimp point of the RJ45.
5.
Insert the RJ45 into the crimp tool receptacle and
squeeze the tool firmly. Note that a ratchet type
tool should tighten down until it no longer clicks.
6.
The RJ45 should be firmly crimped to the CAT5
insulation. It is necessary that the color scheme
be repeated identically on each end of the wire.
Note: Colors listed as “stripe” are a white wire
with a colored stripe.

Step 6
The order in which the individual CAT5 wires are plugged is in not
important, although it is strongly recommended that you label the
CAT5 with the appropriate zone number for future reference.
II. Installing the Essentia Amplifier
System setup works best when the amplifier is placed in the
same location as the audio source equipment. This is typically in
an audio rack, entertainment center or a closet dedicated to
housing the home audio/video equipment.
Once you have plugged the Cat-5 and speaker wires into the EZ
Port, screw the EZ Port into its construction bracket using the
supplied mounting screws.
The amplifier should be plugged in and the power button on the
front panel should be turned on before proceeding with the rest of
the installation. This activates the internal protective circuitry of
the Essentia System.
Fig. 2
III. Terminating Speaker Wire
The speaker wire for each zone is terminated in a standard Eurostyle connector that plugs into each zone specific amplified
output. The common speaker termination scheme is Left - Left +,
Right - Right +. Either two or four-conductor 16-guage wire is
recommended. Larger than 14-guage wire will not fit into the
euro connector.
To terminate the speaker wire, strip back the outer jacket and
expose the inner conductors. Strip approximately 1/4” (4 mm)
of the insulation from the inner conductors exposing the copper
wire. Place the exposed wire in the euro connector and tighten
the screw down terminals, fig. 2.
-
LEFT
Be careful not to allow the exposed wire from each conductor to
touch the adjacent conductor. This will short the speaker input.
Each speaker output is designed for two 8-Ohm speakers.
Overloading the amplifier could cause it to overheat and do
damage to the output.
Fig. 3
IV. Installing the NV-E6DEZP-UK EZ Port
The EZ Port is a multi-connection hub designed to accept all the
CAT5 wires from the keypads in the system and the speaker wires
from the speakers in each zone. The location of the EZ Port
should be determined by the location of the Essentia amplifier. It
is best to place in the wall behind the amplifier that would be
easily accessible if necessary.
The EZ Port fits easily in a dual bracket with an open back. These
are often referred to as “mud rings”. Simply plug the terminated
CAT5 wires into any of the six available jacks on the back of the
EZ Port. The zone speaker wires screw down to the appropriately
labeled termination, Fig. 3.

Fig. 4
V. Connecting the EZ Port to the Essentia amplifier
When the EZ Port is installed in the wall the only part visible
should be the faceplate, speaker connections for zones 1-6, and
a single RJ45 jack. The speaker connections are made using the
supplied Euro connectors and the supplied pre-terminated
network cable is used to integrate the system keypads. Speaker
connections and the network connection are made from the face
of the EZ Port the back of the Essentia, fig. 4. Any CAT5 cable
terminated using 568A or 568B network wiring will suffice should
you need a longer network connection.

VII. Connecting the IR Emitters
IR commands for the source equipment are transferred from the
Essentia amplifier to the source equipment via mini IR mouse
emitters. Six of these are supplied with your Essentia System.
The emitter is plugged into the corresponding source IR output
on the Essentia and then placed over the IR receiver window on
the source component, fig. 6. The IR outputs are individually
routed to sources 1-6 allowing IR commands from the chosen
source to only control that source.
Fig. 6
The two SUM outputs will flash any IR command that is sent from
any of the zones. This is used to connect the NuVo T2 Tuner,
which has a single IR direct input to control both tuners to the
Essentia System or an IR blaster designed to flash IR commands
to a variety of components. This is done by plugging a single
mono 1/8” patch cable into the SUM IR output and into the Direct
IR input.

VIII. Expanding Essentia to 12 Zones
Six additional listening zones can be added to the Essentia
System using the Essentia Expander package. The expansion is
easily done using the Audio Link and Digital Link multi-pin
outputs on the Essentia main amplifier. The necessary cables for
this are supplied with the Expander package. The other necessary
connections are the additional six speaker terminations and a
short CAT5 jumper between the Expander EZ Port and the Main EZ
Port, fig. 7. The CAT5 cables and speaker wires from zones 7-12
are terminated at the back of the Expander EZ Port in the same
manner as the termination for the Main system, see fig. 3 page
9.

IX. Installing the Essentia Keypads
You are now ready to install the keypads and complete the
Essentia installation. This is easily done using a rotary switch
located on the back of the keypad to set a specific zone address
for each keypad, Fig. 8.
The switch requires the use of a small flat screwdriver and is set
by turning the arrow insert on the switch to the appropriate zone
number. Zones 1-12 are set by using switch positions 1-C (note
that zones 10, 11 and 12 are denoted by A, B and C respectively).
Switch positions D, E, F and 0 are for additional keypads in zones
1-4.
Fig. 8
It is important to note that the keypads will not function properly
unless each has its own unique zone address.
Once each keypad’s zone address is set, the CAT5 can be plugged
in and the keypad installed in the wall.

Volume Reset
Each zone has the capability of turning on at two different
volume level settings. At factory default the zone will turn on at
the previous listening level. If desired, you can change that
default to a low level volume reset regardless of the previous
level.
To change the zone to volume reset mode, press the Mute and
Source 5 buttons simultaneously. The Source 5 button will begin
flashing. The volume LED will first appear at the far left
indicating no volume reset. Pushing the Volume Up button will
cause the volume LED to move to the far right position. This now
indicates that the zone is in volume reset mode, fig. 14.

To return to normal keypad operation, press the Source 5 button
again and it will stop flashing. In the volume reset mode the zone
will automatically turn on at a preset -60 dB level. The volume
reset can be turned off by repeating the above steps and
returning the volume LED to the far left position.

XI. Using the Fixed and Variable Lineouts
Each zone of the Essentia amplifier has two 3.5mm mini stereo outputs. These are fixed and variable lineouts used for adding additional
amplification when necessary for each zone. A distinct advantage to the NuVo equipment is the ability to use the amplified output,
variable and fixed lineouts all simultaneously on all zones. The Essentia amplifier has zone trigger outputs that provide a 12V trigger for
additional amplification. This enables the attached amplifier to be triggered on and off with the zone keypad.
Zone Variable Lineout
The variable lineout is designed to allow additional audio amplification volume level to be controlled from that zone’s keypad. When
used in conjunction with the zone amplified output, fig. 15, all the speaker’s volume will track with the keypad volume level.

Zone Fixed Lineout
In some zone applications, it is more advantageous to have a separate volume control on the additional speakers being driven by an
additional amplifier. This is common with outdoor zones. The fixed lineout offers the capability to add amplification, but the audio signal
is not affected by the zone keypad volume level. Therefore, it requires a separate volume control for those speakers, fig. 16.

XII. The NV-LRC1 IR Remote Control
The Essentia System comes with the NV-LRC1 Learning Remote Control. This remote allows wireless control of all keypad functions, as
well as the functions of the audio source equipment. Each NuVo zone keypad has an IR receiver that captures the specific source
commands from any remote control and in turn sends the command ultimately to the appropriate source equipment. Embedded IR code
libraries makes use of the LRC1 with a large variety of audio and video equipment easy. For complete setup and functionality refer to the
User Guide included with the remote control. Additional remote controls are available from NuVo.
XIII. NV-MI1 Mute Interface Adapter
The Mute Interface is used in conjunction with System Mute input in the back of the Essentia amplifier. It acts as a relay for a voltage
from up to two phone lines and two doorbell transformers. When a voltage is presented to the MI1 it then sends a contact closure to the
Essentia System, which in turn causes the system to mute momentarily. This is useful in allowing the telephone ring or doorbell to be
heard when audio is playing in any of the zones, Fig. 17.

XIV. NV-LSA40 Local Source Amplifier
The LSA40 is 40 watt accessary amplifier that allows any line-level audio signal local to a zone to be amplified through that zone’s
speakers. It is designed to be used universally in a variety of applications, but as shown in fig. 18, it can be triggered on and off by any
zone keypad. When connected to the keypad, the user will listen to the NuVo audio system when the zone is turned on. When the zone is
off the LSA40 will automatically amplify any incoming local audio signal.

XV. NV-LSA40PD Local Source Amplifier Power Distribution Hub
The LSA40PD is a great device for distributing the necessary DC power to up to 4 individual LSA40 amplifiers. This allows the LSA40
components to be remotely located without the need for an external power supply in the zone, fig. 19. The LSA40PD is typically located
where the Essentia amplifier is installed. The power from the head end to each of LSA40 locations is sent over standard 16 gauge speaker
wire.

XVI. NV-LSI12 Local Source Interrupt
A lower cost alternative to the LSA40 is the LSI12. This is a non-amplified local source interrupt. It is installed in the same way the LSA40
is installed, but the incoming local signal must be amplified, fig 20. This is a useful accessory where a local amplified signal is already
present.
Fig. 20
The connection from the LSI12 is
done with a connection at a two pin
screw down terminal. Make sure that
red is positive and black is negative.

Essentia Amplifier
There are two methods for triggering the NuVo P2100 from the
Essentia outputs. One is to set the POWER MODE switch on the
P2100 to Audio (the extreme left position) and allow an
incoming audio signal from the Essentia System to turn on the
P2100. The second method is to place the POWER MODE switch in
the AC/DC (extreme right) position. This will turn on the P2100
when the Essentia is on. An additional feature of Essentia is zone
specific triggers that will trigger the P2100 only when that zone
is turned on.

Troubleshooting
Symptom
Probable Cause
Remedy
When the keypad is plugged in there is a
loud pop through the speakers and the
keypad does not work.
Improperly wired CAT5 cable.
Check that you are using the 568A or B
wiring standard (see section I: Crimping
CAT5 wire). The best way to know is to
use a CAT5 tester.
When the keypad is plugged in, it just
flashes and has no functionality.
Assigning duplicate addresses to multiple
keypads.
Each keypad must have a unique address
set with the Zone Address rotary switch
located on the back of the keypad (see
section IX, Installing the Essentia
keypads, page 11).
The amplifier is plugged in and turned on,
but the STAND BY LED is not lit and none of
the system functions work.
This is most likely caused by a blown fuse
on the power supply.
The fuse is accessed at the back of the
amplifier where the AC cord plugs in. It
requires a 4 amp time delay fuse.
The zone is on and music is playing, but
the keypad only flashes when I try to
change source, control volume, mute, or
turn the zone off.
The parental lock is assigned on that
particular keypad.
Pressing and holding the active lit Source
button on the keypad will activate a lock
feature and prevent any functionality.
When locked the keypad will simply flash
when a function is attempted. Pressing
and holding the source button again will
unlock the keypad.
All the keypads change when a source is
selected on only one.
The keypads are set for Source Grouping.
Pressing the MUTE and Source 3 button
simultaneously sets the Source Grouping
feature. This will cause multiple keypads
to always share the same source (see
Section X, Zone EQ Control and Source
Grouping, page 12).
With the keypads plugged in, the POWER
LED on the front of the amplifier will not
turn on.
One or more improperly wired CAT5 cables.
Make sure the amplifier is turned on. Test
that the POWER LED on the amplifier
turns on when the Network Cable is
unplugged. Next, unplug all the CAT5
cables from the EZ Port and plug them
back in one at a time until the bad
cable(s) is discovered.
The IR repeater does not properly control
the audio source equipment.
One or more of the IR emitters are not
properly placed over the IR receiver on the
audio source equipment, or the IR output
on the Essentia does not correspond with
the audio equipment you are controlling.
Reposition the LED end of the emitter on
the face of the source equipment, so it
is flashing directly over that source’s IR
receiver. Make sure that the emitter
plugged into IR Output #1 is actually
going to source #1 , and so on for
sources 2-6.

Addendum
Control Interface Description Document for the Nuvo E6D Main Unit
Revision E (for Nuvo E6D Mark II systems only) June 8, 2006
DB9M PORT PINOUTS:
Nuvo Transmit to System Controller on pin 2.
Nuvo Receive from System Controller on pin 3.
Ground on pin 5.
SERIAL PORT PARAMETERS: RS232, RTS/CTS or software flow control (XON/XOFF) NOT required, 9600 baud, 8N1
protocol.
RULES OF PROTOCOL:
(1) For alpha ASCII characters, always use UPPER CASE. In this document, actual characters in a string are presented in
BOLD type.
(2) All numerical fields are coded as ASCII digit characters.
(3) Each Command string is STARTED with an ASCII “*” character and terminated by a <CR> character (0D hexadecimal).
Each response string issued by the E6D will START with an ASCII “#” and be terminated with a <CR> character (0D
hexadecimal).
(4) If a command has an error in it (does not adhere to exact command syntax), the E6D will respond with a “#?<CR>”
string.
(5) Whenever queuing multiple commands to the E6D, the host program should pause for 50 milliseconds between
commands to prevent buffer overruns.
NUVO POWER-ON STATE:
(1) Each zone is OFF until ON command is received.
(2) Each zone's ZoneSet status will be as set by the special key combination settings as detailed in the owner's manual.
If no keypad is connected with a given zone address, then ZoneSet will default to:
A. OR0 (No override)
B. BASS+0 (Bass FLAT)
C. TREB+0 (Treble FLAT)
D. GRP0 (SOURCE GROUPING OFF)
E. VRST1 (VOLUME RESET TO 50 dB ON)
If these zone settings are overridden by the commands which follow in this document, the overridden values will reset
to the default values above upon cycling power on the Main Unit.
(3) For the first four seconds after power-on, a series of non-control related characters will be issued at a wide range of
baud rates. These are necessary queries to a program that may be running on a connected PC for the purpose of
Firmware field upgrades. They should be ignored by the host control system.
NON-VOLATILE COMMANDS AND ASSOCIATED RESPONSES With the exception of commands associated with setting the
IR carrier frequency, the effect of all commands is non-permanent; i.e. when power is cycled on the main unit, it will return to
default values. The commands that are an exception to this rule follow in this section.
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND:
*IRSETSR<CR> Reads status of SOURCE IR carrier frequency settings.
RESPONSE: #IRSET:aa,bb,cc,dd,ee,ff<CR> where:
aa = IR carrier frequency of SOURCE 1 ("38" or "56")
bb = carrier frequency of SOURCE 2 ("38" or "56")
cc = carrier frequency of SOURCE 3 ("38" or "56")
dd = carrier frequency of SOURCE 4 ("38" or "56")
ee = carrier frequency of SOURCE 5 ("38" or "56")
ff = carrier frequency of SOURCE 6 ("38" or "56")
23
NOTE: the Main Unit ships with the carrier frequency DEFAULT setting of 38 KHz for all six sources.
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND: *IRSETDF<CR> Restores DEFAULT SOURCE IR carrier frequency settings (38 KHz for all six sources).
RESPONSE: Same response as for #IRSETSR<CR>
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND: *SxIR56SET<CR> - sets SOURCE x to 56 KHz IR repeat carrier (x is 1 to 6).
RESPONSE: Same response as for #IRSETSR<CR>
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND: *SxIR38SET<CR> - sets SOURCE x to 38 KHz IR repeat carrier (x is 1 to 6).
RESPONSE: Same response as for #IRSETSR<CR>
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND/RESPONSE DESCRIPTIONS.
NOTE zone number field xx should ALWAYS include a lead zero (“0”) for zone numbers less than 10.
COMMAND: *ZxxCONSR<CR> - Connect STATUS REQUEST where xx is zone # from 1 to
12.
RESPONSE: #ZxxPWRppp,SRCs,GRPt,VOL-yy,Pzzz<CR> -ppp = “ON” (2 characters)
or “OFF” (3 characters)
The remaining fields are not included in the response if ppp is “OFF”:
-s = SOURCE NUMBER 1 to 6
-q = 0 if SOURCE GROUP is ON 1if SOURCE GROUP is OFF
-yy = level below max in dB: -00 to -78 dB (include lead 0 for all single-digit
values)
-yy = “MT” if in MUTE state
-yy = “XM” if external MUTE is being held
active
-zzz = “MST” if this zone is PARTY MASTER
-zzz = “SLV” if this zone is SLAVED to a
PARTY MASTER in another zone
-zzz = “OFF” if this zone is under LOCAL CONTROL only (either there is no
party master, or this zone has been manually
overridden)
This response will also be issued in response to pressing the ON/OFF, VOLUME, or SOURCE
keys on a KEYPAD. NOTE the response will be issued if a SOURCE key is pressed on a
zone that is powered OFF even though the key press has no effect on the system. It will be
output at every increment during a volume ramp initiated by HOLDING a VOLUME UP or
VOLUME DOWN key on a keypad. It will also be issued at every increment of a volume
ramp commanded by the *ZxxVOL+<CR> and *ZxxVOL-<CR> commands (see below).
The MUTE value will be asserted if a *ZxMTON<CR> command has been received, OR if the
volume is run all the way to the lowest possible point (volume off). An active EXTERNAL
24
MUTE input, however, will always override other volume response values with the “XM” response.
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND:
*ZxxSETSR<CR> ZoneSet STATUS REQUEST where xx is zone # from 1 to 12.
RESPONSE: #ZxxORp,BASSyy,TREByy,GRPq,VRSTu
-p = 1 if at least one of the permanent
values have been overridden* by an RS232 command.
-yy = EQ level, dB, 12 to +0 (flat) to
+12 in 2 dB increments if
set by RS232, -8, -6,-4, 0,
+4, +6, +8 if set on keypad.
-q = 0 if SOURCE GROUP is ON
1 if SOURCE GROUP is OFF
-u = 0 if VOLUME RESET is ON
1 if VOLUME RESET is OFF
*override set to 1 FOR THIS ZONE only if one of commands *ZxxBASSyy<CR>, *ZxxTREByy<CR>, or
*ZxxGRPq<CR> are issued (see descriptions below).
Once a parameter has been SET by one of these commands, it will remain UNTIL:
a. power is cycled on the Main Unit either with the front panel power switch or by removing AC power. Upon power-up,
the system will restore keypad permanent
settings (see the User Manual for details on how to perform these settings).
b. an operator manually sets one of these parameters from a keypad. This takes the unit out of OVERRIDE state, but
other RS232-commanded settings will remain until another RS232 command overrides them, or power is cycled.
This response is also issued whenever these parameters are set from a keypad.
*********************************************************************************
COMMAND:
