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 Grand Concerto 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 Grand Concerto 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 Grand Concerto 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
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.
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.
7.
Test each termination with a CAT5 Tester before
completing the installation.

II. Terminating the Speaker Wire (fig. 2)
Fig. 2
All the NuVo systems operate across a “homerun”-wiring
scheme using Cat-5 for the zone keypad control
communication, and a separate run of speaker wire for each
zone from the speaker outputs to the zone speakers. We
suggest 16-gage 2- or 4-conductor speaker wires.
The speaker wire termination is done using a modular “Euro”
connector. Each conductor is screwed down to the connector
block and plugged into the appropriate speaker output on
the back of the amplifier. The proper termination is Left
channel: – and +; Right channel: – and +.
III. Installing the Grand Concerto Amplifier
-
LEFT
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.
The amplifier should be plugged in and the power button on
the front panel should be depressed before proceeding with
the rest of the installation. This activates the internal
protective circuitry of the Grand Concerto System.
Fig. 3
IV. Installing the NV-I8GEZP EZ Port (fig.3)
The EZ Port is a multi-connection hub designed to accept all
the Cat-5 wires from the keypads in the system. The location
of the EZ Port should be determined by the location of the
Grand Concerto amplifier. It is best to place in a wall behind
the amplifier that would be easily accessible if necessary.
The EZ Port fits easily in any dual-gang-size, low-voltage
ring with an open back. These are often referred to as “mud
rings.” Simply plug the terminated Cat-5 wires into any of
the 20 available jacks on the back of the EZ Port. The order in
which the individual Cat-5 wires are plugged in is not
important, although it is strongly recommended that you
label the Cat-5 with the appropriate zone number for future
reference.
Once you have plugged the Cat-5 wires into the EZ Port,
screw the EZ port into its construction bracket using the
supplied mounting screws.

When the EZ Port is installed in the wall, the only part visible
should be the faceplate and four RJ45 jacks. The supplied
pre-terminated network cable can then be plugged into one
of the six available jacks and into the Network connection on
the back of the Grand Concerto Amplifier. Any Cat-5 cable
terminated using 568A or 568B network wiring will suffice
should you need a longer connection. Remember, it is
important to terminate the cable the same way on both
ends.

T2 Tuners
Each of the T2 Tuner components actually houses two
individual AM/FM or Satellite receivers, which have their
own display on the front panel. Once the T2 is plugged in
and the NuVoNet CAT-5 is connected to the EZ Port and
initial display, OPERATING MODE will appear for each tuner.
Below this, the choices are STAND ALONE, SOURCE 6, SOURCE
5, SOURCE 4, SOURCE 3, SOURCE 2, and SOURCE 1. Stand
Alone is automatically highlighted at initial startup.
Selecting the appropriate Concerto source input is
accomplished by turning the Select knob for each tuner
counter-clockwise until the desired source input number is
highlighted. It is selected by pushing the Select knob. Once
this is done, the Grand Concerto NuVoNet will recognize that
source.
A feature of the Grand Concerto System is its ability to
automatically communicate with the T2 AM/FM and Satellite
Tuners and the M3 Audio Server. The communication
happens through the EZ Port connection hub, across a
communication protocol called NuVoNet. Although software
programming is not necessary for this function, configuring
the installation through the Configurator Software prior to
installation has distinct advantages, see X. Grand Concerto
Configurator Software.
When the T2 Tuners or M3 Server are plugged in for the first
time, they will display a prompt to select a source input
number for the Grand Concerto. For NuVoNet to
communicate properly, you should have already connected
the NuVoNet components to one of the six “Peripheral
Device” inputs on the face of the EZ Port.

M3 Server
At initial startup, the front panel display will prompt with
OUTPUT 1: PRESS OK TO SELECT NUVONET SOURCE. When OK is
selected, the top line of the display will read OPERATING

IR commands for the source equipment are transferred from
the Grand Concerto amplifier to the source equipment using
the mini IR mouse emitters. Six of these are supplied with
your Grand Concerto System. The emitter is plugged into the
corresponding source IR output on the Grand Concerto and
then placed over the IR receiver window on the source
component. The IR outputs are individually routed to
sources 1-6.

VIII. Source Status Inputs (fig. 7)
The source status inputs can be very useful for monitoring
the power status of your audio sources. Some equipment
uses “toggling commands” for powering on and off (that is,
the commands for on and off are not separate, discrete
commands). This situation is typically confusing when using
a single button to initiate to a piece of source equipment a
string of commands that includes power on. With “toggling”
equipment, if the unit is already on, moving the button will
inadvertently turn it off. The source status inputs give the
Grand Concerto System the ability to sense that the source
equipment is on so it can automatically bypass that
command.
Current sensor attaches to the
AC power cord of the source
equipment.
Using these inputs requires an AC power-sensing module.
These are readily available from electronic accessory
manufacturers and typically attach to the AC power cord of
the desired source equipment. The connection at the back of
the Grand Concerto is a mono 1/8” jack. Once this is in place,
the Grand Concerto System will sense the amount of AC
current being drawn by the source equipment.

IX. Expanding Grand Concerto to 16 Zones (fig. 8)
Eight additional listening zones can be added to the Grand
Concerto System using the Grand Concerto Expander
package. The expansion is easily done using the Source Link
and Digital Link multi-pin outputs on the Grand Concerto
main amplifier (NV-I8DMS).

1. Main Startup
The Configurator is a tabbed Wizard-style interface
designed to sequentially walk the installer through the
system setup. When the program is launched, the Start tab
is highlighted. This gives three choices for beginning a
configuration. You can create a new file, open an existing
file, or retrieve an existing file from a configured Grand
Concerto System. Once configured, the finished program
loaded into the Grand Concerto main amplifier can always be
retrieved via the RS232 port and edited.
Once a configuration file has been opened, you can then
click on the next button to continue. The Configurator will
not let you continue beyond Start without either creating a
new file or opening an existing file. It will also prevent
moving forward through any of the tabs until the necessary
information is completed in any one of the tabs.

1.1 Open or Create Grand Concerto Configurator File
2.1 IR Libraries
When you click on this button, the program goes to a Config.
File. There you can either open one of the existing
configurations or specify the name of a new file.
Configurations are saved with a .cfg extension.
The IR Library is a list of available components and their IR
function codes. The Configurator software stores captured IR
codes in a single directory. Once captured or downloaded,
the Configurator software will permanently store it as an .irc
file.
1.1 Retrieve Configuration from Grand Concerto
To retrieve a configuration from an existing Grand Concerto
installation, launch the Configurator software. Make sure
your computer is connected to the RS232 port on the back
panel of the Grand Concerto amplifier. The Startup screen
has two buttons. The first is used to open an existing
configuration or to create a new one. The second asks to
“Retrieve Existing Configuration From Grand Concerto.”
When you click on the “Retrieve” button, a progress window
will appear.
2.1 IR Libraries
If you have this configuration already stored on your
computer's hard drive, you will see a dialog box asking if
you wish to overwrite the existing file. If this file is not
stored in your computer, this box will not appear.
1.1 Open or Create Grand Concerto Configurator
File
2.2 Adding a New Component to the IR Library
New component IR files are easily added by clicking on the
Add New button. This brings up a new window titled Add New
Component. In this window you must first enter the
manufacturer name and model. The Type drop-down menu
contains a large list of components. Each is a template of
common functions for that type of equipment. Clicking on
the type that matches the component will add the type name
in that field. If desired, you can add a type name that is not
in the drop-down menu.
Clicking on OK will automatically add the selected
component and associated functions to the IR Library.
12
Fig. 9
Using the IR Learning Station Interface (fig. 9)
To record new IR codes, you will need the IR Learning Station
Interface. The IR Learning Station Interface is a powerful
tool for setting up new IR Libraries for use with the
Configurator Software, and is part of the IR Learning Station
Package. Capturing function codes and adding them to the
component IR Library is an easy process.

When the remote code is entered, the IR Library Record
window will go from yellow to green and indicate that the
capture was successful, and it will then return to yellow.
Repeat this procedure three more times until the desired
code is added to the IR Library Edit window. You will now see
the number of code repeats and the duration of the code. A
normal non-toggling remote will require two button pushes
to successfully record a command, while a toggling remote
will require four button pushes for each command.
The back panel of the Interface box has two IR outputs for
testing purposes. You can use the included IR emitter and
attach it to the IR window on the face of the source
component, or to the built-in IR blaster, which, when aimed
at the source equipment, will fire the IR command.
2.3 Recording IR codes
When a new component is added to the IR Library, it is
necessary to record the IR codes associated with each
function. To do this, connect the Learning Station Interface
as described above. Double-click on the desired component
from the IR Library page. This will open the IR Library Editor.
This window lists the complete set of functions for that type
of device.
-
POWER
12VDC/0.4A
If there is an error in recording the code, the display in the
Record window will indicate that there was a communication
error. If this occurs, click on the Record button and reenter
the code.
2.3 Recoding IR Codes
To initiate the IR recording process, you can either doubleclick on a function to be recorded or highlight the function
and click on the Record button. This will open the IR Library
Record window. The window will indicate that the
Configurator is “Waiting for IR Communications.” To record a
new code, simply point the component's remote control at
the IR receiver on the NuVo IR Learning Station Interface.
The first time you enter a code, the Configurator determines
if it is a “toggling function,” which means that the remote
actually sends two commands back-to-back. This requires
that the function button be pressed four times in
succession.
13
2.4 IR Library Default Key Assignment
2.5 IR Library Test
Once the desired codes are added, assign them to the
appropriate key on the Display Pad. To do this, right-click on
each code and select “Keys.” This opens a drop-down menu
of the possible key selections for the Grand Concerto
Display Pad. Select the appropriate key for that command
and the Configurator will add it to the Default Key field for
that command. Keep in mind that the Grand Concerto Control
Pad has only five IR assignable buttons, so button control is
limited. More capability for control can be incorporated in
the macro tab covered later, and can then be added to the
menu capability of that source.
An important feature of the Grand Concerto Configurator is
the ability to test each IR code as it is added to the IR
Library. This insures that every code will work reliably.
When a new code is added, while it is still highlighted, click
on the test button. This will open the IR Library Test window.
Make sure that the IR Learning Interface box's IR emitter is
either facing the IR receiver window of the source
equipment or an IR emitter is plugged into one of the two IR
emitter outputs and affixed to the IR receiver window of the
source equipment. Clicking on the test button will cause the
IR Learning interface to emit the code. The source
equipment should respond appropriately to the command if
it has been stored correctly. A test result box will open
where you can record yes or no to the test. Three successful
test results are required before the “Passed” count turns
green. Clicking the “OK” button will save the results in the
IR Library. The “Tested” column for that command will show
the number of successful tests performed.
Once this sequence is completed, proceed to the next
function command, and repeat the above steps. When you
have assigned a default key for each IR, click on “Done” and
that component's IR Library is complete.
2.4 Library Default Key Assignment
Although not required, testing each code is highly
recommended.
2.5 IR Library Test

2.6 Adding a Function Code
3.1 Select or Edit Source
If a required IR code is not in the list of codes, it is possible
to add a code to the list by clicking the “Create New” button.
The pull-down menu contains a list of all standard IR codes.
A name not found in the list can be typed in, but it is
recommended that you use the names provided in the list.
This conserves memory in the Grand Concerto. Clicking on
the “OK” button proceeds directly to the IR recording
process.
Double-clicking on a blank source will open the “Select
Source” window. This window assigns the appropriate source
number input. The “Display Name” is the text that will be
read on the Display Pad when that source is selected in any
zone. The display name can contain only capital letters,
numbers, and some punctuation. If an invalid key is typed, it
will be ignored.
The “Make” field defines the manufacturer of the
equipment. A drop-down menu allows you to choose a
source from the IR Library. The “Model” field provides a
drop-down menu that allows you to choose the specific
piece of source equipment from the selected manufacturer.
2.6 Adding a Function Code
An important feature of the “Select Source” window is the
“Gain” level control. Different pieces of source equipment
tend to have different levels of audio output signal. This
slider control allows you to compensate for equipment that
has an inherently lower volume level. By using this
adjustment, when switching between sources, relative
volume levels remain constant.
When the appropriate information has been completed, click
“OK.” This will add the updated source information to the
“Source” window. When all the desired sources have been
defined, go to “Next” and proceed to the “Macros” setup.
2.7 Cleaning Up an IR Library
3.1 Select or Edit Source
Unused IR codes can be deleted from the list by highlighting
the code and either clicking the ”Delete” button or rightclicking and selecting “Delete.”
When you are finished editing the library, select “Done.”
3. Defining Sources
The “Sources” tab allows you to define the source
component attached to each of the six source inputs. All six
sources are not needed, but at least one source must be
defined.
15
4. Macros
4.1 Edit Macro Definition
Each source defined in the “Source” step has a separate
Control Pad definition. The “Source to View” pull-down
menu provides the display name given to each source. Using
the “Next” and “Back” buttons will automatically cycle
through all defined sources.
The Macro Definition window has two separate points of
definition on the right side of the screen. The
top section allows a string of commands to be associate
with one of the five IR programmable buttons.
The bottom section automatically places the commands I
the menu selections at the Control Pads.
Examples of this use would be specific disc selection on a
multi-disc changer or specific station tuning
for satellite or cable receiver boxes.
An important feature of the NuVoNet Suite is the
communication with each Control Pad within the installation,
which eliminates the need for Macro Definitions. However, if
you do want to create specific strings of IR commands or use
the IR libraries of third-party source equipment to setup
functions within that source's Menu on the Control Pads, this
is the place to do that.
If the component had default keys defined in the IR Library,
single IR code macros will be automatically created for each
key. Hovering the mouse over each key in the Display Pad
picture on the left side of the screen will bring up a tool-tip
displaying the name of the macro assigned to that key.
Clicking on the key highlights the macro on the right side of
the screen.
The tree in the left-hand window displays all available IR
codes from the library. The tree is automatically expanded to
show the codes from the component associated with the
source.
Each macro has a “Display Name” that is used to describe
the macro. Before a macro can be saved, the name of the
macro must be established.
4.1 Edit Macro Definitions
Double-clicking on a key in either display will begin editing
the macro associated with that key.
4. Macros
4.1.1 Adding Codes to a Macro
A code is added to the macro by double-clicking on the
green IR code name in the library to the left. That code will
then be automatically added to the macro string to the right.
Up to 100 codes can be added to a single macro.
16
4.1.1 Adding Codes to a Macro
Re-Ordering Macro Codes
After a code is added to a macro, highlighting a code and
pushing the Ý or ß button can reorder the codes.
Macros (updated)
After editing a macro, the macro list is updated to show the
number of IR codes and the display name.
Note that the Macro tab has an additional button at the
bottom that says “Update Macros From Library.” If codes
were edited in any way in an IR library after a source has
been defined in the Source tab, this button will
automatically pull those changes into the Macro Definition
window.
4.1.2 Editing Codes in a Macro
5. Zones
Double-clicking on a macro step on the right side will open
an “Edit Macro Code Settings” window. This allows you to
change the delay time before the command is issued. The
default delay is .25 seconds. This can be increased by .25second increments up to 30.5 seconds. Often a command
requires mechanical movement in the source equipment
and, therefore, the delay is important before initiating the
next command.
Up to 20 zones can be defined with the Grand Concerto. Each
zone can be defined with unique properties.
You will notice that the zone tab contains 20 entries for zone
Display Pads. The system can accommodate a total of 20
Display Pads by using the slave function in the “Edit Zone
Properties” window. A slave Display Pad is homerun to the
EZ Port, but automatically shares the same functions and
works in tandem with the main zone Display Pad. Up to three
slave Display Pads can operate on a single zone.
The number of repeats for each command can also be
changed. This is equivalent to pushing and holding the
button on the remote control.
4.1.2 Editing Codes in a Macro
5.1 Edit Zone Properties
17
Source Grouping: This allows for one zone to automatically
listen to the same source as all other zones in the group. This
is a very useful feature for a large open area where it is not
practical for more than one source to be playing at one time.
The advantage of the zone group is that each Display Pad
within the group has the ability to turn on or off, mute, and
control volume independently. This drop-down menu allows
any zone to be assigned to a group, or as an individual zone
with no group affiliation. Up to four distinct groups can be
created.
5.1 Edit Zone Properties
Double-clicking on a zone number opens the “Edit Zone
Properties” window. Specific properties defining that zone
are set here.
Max Volume: This allows the volume in a zone to be limited.
This can be done either to avoid damage to low-power
speakers or simply to prevent a certain room from being
turned up too high (e.g., a teenager's bedroom).
IR Pass-through: Each zone Control Pad has an IR receiver
for wireless remote control. By its nature, IR is susceptible
to external interference. To account for this, there is specific
IR pass-through settings for each Control Pad. IR Disabled
turns off the IR receiver completely and eliminates any
possibility of a competing light source. This is useful in an
environment in which the Control Pad receiver is competing
with overwhelming sunlight. This will prevent IR
communication throughout the system and therefore, it is
better to eliminate that light source. IR No Pass-through
prevents third-party remote control commands from being
accepted, but still allows the NuVo NV-I8GRC1 remote
control to operate the system. In some zones this is
necessary when a third-party remote is often used to control
a non–NuVo System source such as a TV. This would eliminate
that remote control's commands from being received by the
Control Pad and passed through to the source equipment.
Party Volume: This controls the reset volume level for each
zone when the All On/Party Mode is initiated from any of the
Control Pads. The range is –78dB to –30dB.
Page Volume: If you are using the paging feature of the
Grand Concerto System, you can also set the specific volume
level of the page zone by zone, by using this volume control.
The range is –78dB to –30dB, with a default at –40dB.
Balance: The level of output to the left and right speakers is
adjusted here. The default is center, but depending on the
location of the speakers and the optimal listening area of
the room, it may be advantageous to adjust the balance to
either the left or the right.
Bass and Treble: Each of these EQ levels can be adjusted
individually. The range is -18dB to +18dB.
Lock Zone By Default: This check box turns on a function that
automatically prevents any functionality from the zone until
the assigned security code is entered. Primarily, the
function prevents an outside zone from being turned on
except when the homeowner really wants to listen to it.
Volume Reset at Zone ON: A zone-specific feature is the
ability to have a zone automatically reset to a low volume
level when the zone is turned on. This check box initiates
that feature and is tied to the Zone Reset Volume level set
above it. If this box is not checked, the zone will turn on at
the last volume level.
Do-Not-Disturb: This Section is used to lock out systemwide commands from a specific zone.
No Master: Master and Party refer to the ability to turn all
zones on simultaneously. In some zones you may not want
this function.
No Page: The Grand Concerto System is capable of paging
through audio source input 6. This involves a phone system
that has a paging audio output and a means to provide a
voltage trigger. This is controlled using the Security tab to
set the voltage trigger and utilizing the Mute Input, see
Mute Input page, . This will be covered in the next tab.
Loudness Compensation ON: This box defaults to checked and
enables an automatic bass and treble boost when the zone is
at a low listening level. This EQ gradually flattens out as the
zone volume is increased. Unchecking the box turns this
function off.
Exclusive Source Control: Checking this box gives this zone
exclusive “do not disturb” control of any chosen source.
Other zones will have the ability to listen to that source, but
they will not have any specific function control.
18
Enabled Zone Sources: These allow individual sources to be
turned off for specific zones. A source that is turned off will
not display in that zone. This is particularly useful in
preventing child access to a source dedicated to adult
listening.
5.2 Zones (updated)
Display Settings: The overall brightness and AutoDim
feature for each Control Pad are set using these drop-down
menus. The first menu is the display brightness. The choices
are Dimmest, Dim, Not So Bright, Normal, Bright, Brighter,
Brightest. The second menu sets the duration for the
AutoDim feature. These range from AutoDim Disabled, 15 Sec
up to 1 Hour. The next menu sets a specific AutoDim level.
AutoDim Brightness Off removes all display and backlighting.
Using AutoDim Brightness Low or AutoDim Brightness
Medium reduces the level of brightness, but does not make
the Control Pad completely dark.
6. System Settings
This tab is used to define the way in which the External Mute
input functions and for setting the zone lockout security
code.
Slave To: This drop-down menu is used to assign additional
“slave” Control Pads to a zone. Up to 20 Control Pads can be
used in an installation. The EZ Port hub is equipped with 20
RJ-45 ports to accommodate all the system's Control Pads.
This is a useful feature for large rooms where more than one
Display Pad is desired. If slave Display Pads are used, we
suggest that you disable the IR pass-through on those to
prevent cross-communication. The Slave To function can
also be used to tie two or more zones together under the
control of a single Control Pad.
6.1 External Mute: System Mute Trigger
The Grand Concerto System has an accessory, the NV-MI1
Mute Interface, which is designed to mute any music playing
through the system when a doorbell or phone rings, see MI1
Mute Interface. When setting the System Mute Trigger, set
the mute input to respond to the contact closure provided by
the MI1.
5.2 Zones (updated)
When the desired properties for each zone are set, click on
OK. This will return you to the Zones tab. There you will see
an updated list of the zones by the number they are
assigned, as well as the specific parameters defined in the
Zone Edit window.
Double-clicking on the zones will reopen the edit window,
where any of the definition properties can be modified.

6.1 System Mute Trigger
7. Update System
The finished configuration is now ready to be downloaded to
the Grand Concerto amplifier. While downloading, a progress
box will show download progress. Once complete, the
configuration is permanently stored in flash memory.
Configurations can always be retrieved and edited at a future
date.
7. Update System
6.2 External Mute: Paging Trigger
The Grand Concerto System has a built-in solution for
whole-house paging typically through a phone system. The
Paging Trigger setting causes the system to mute across all
the zones, and in turn, amplifies the page across all zones.
Each Zone Edit utility in the Configurator software or the
menu at each Control Pad offers the capability of setting the
page volume in each zone.

XI. Control Pad Setup
XII. Using the Control Pad's MENU Button
Factory-new Installation
Menu gives access to specific music selection and control for
each source, as well as zone- and system-setting capability.
When the MENU button is pushed, the display goes to an
eight-line screen labeled Main Menu.
The system should be programmed with the Configurator
prior to setting up the Display Pads for the first time. The
Grand Concerto amplifier should be placed in its permanent
location, plugged in, and turned on. When a Display Pad is
plugged in for the first time, the following sequence will
occur:
MAIN MENU — At initial startup three menu items will appear.
They are Favorites, Sources, and Setup, fig. 10.
1. When first plugged in, Grand Concerto V. X.XX where
X refers to the current firmware version number
loaded in the Grand Concerto main amplifier unit.
The Control Pad will then go to the Zone Selection
menu.
2. Press the Power Button to turn the Control Pad on.
The display will flash the Grand Concerto and
Version number screen and immediately go to Zone
Selection. If you have loaded a configuration into
the main unit, once in Zone Selection mode all the
configured zone names will appear starting with the
first. If you are setting the system directly out of
the box, it will simply list generic Zone 1, Zone 2,
etc., up to Zone 20. Setting the appropriate zone
address is simply done by using the arrow buttons
to scroll up or down to the appropriate zone and
pressing the OK button.
3. The Control Pad will flash the version-number
screen one more time and immediately turn off.
When powered on, the addressed Control Pad will
then go to the first established source.
Fig. 10
Main Menu
Favorites

Setup
Favorites: Top-line favorites are global. Favorites or play lists
set up with in Windows Media Player and synced with the
NuVo M3 Server or within an iPod can be added to the
Favorites list. Potential members of this list can also include
station presets for the NuVo T2 or other sources such as
satellite or cable. Assigning global favorites is done in the
Setup menu.
Sources: This offers quick access to the six sources defined in
the system. Third-party sources can be defined with a source
name in the Grand Concerto Configurator software, or they are
labeled by the system as a generic source number. -The
NuVoNet sources have a predefined system name, fig. 11.
At this point, the zone may be operated by the parameters
set in the configuration. Zone settings may be modified

This procedure allows an addressed Control Pad to be moved
to a new location. Within the main menu of each zone, go to
Setup. Within the Setup options, scroll to Advanced Settings
and to Zone Number. All the used addresses will be grayed
out. Any available addresses will be accessible. Scrolling to
None will erase the current address.
21
Setup: The Setup menu is for specific system setup. It
consists of several subset menus. These are defined in the
next section.
Display Settings: The brightness of the Control Pad
display can be controlled in this menu. Brightness
sets the overall level of the display. AutoDim sets
the Control Pad to dim or go completely dark after a
set period of time. The range is 15 seconds to 1
hour. Dim Brightness works with the AutoDim
feature and sets the level of dimness.
Favorites #1-12: Twelve global favorites can be defined for
easy access from within the Main Menu. Any favorites, which
include M3 and iPod play lists, tuner presets and specific
disc selections can be selected in the Favorites setup and
automatically added to the global list. The Grand Concerto
Remote Control has a 12-button numeric keypad that
provides direct access to the 12 assigned favorites. When a
favorite is selected, the zone will automatically go to the
appropriate source and music selection.

Zone Settings: This is the first menu option under Setup, fig.
12.
Balance: This controls the level of audio going to
the left and right speakers. In some cases, when the
listening area is not absolutely centered between
the speakers, it is useful to adjust the center
listening point left or right. This menu option gives
the ability to adjust the sound left or right up to 18
steps in either direction.
Bass: This adjusts the frequency level from 100Hz
and below. The default is flat, and the range is
–18dB to +18dB.
Treble: This adjustment works within the same
parameters as the bass and adjusts the frequency
level from 10kHz and up.
Loudness Compensation: Loudness can be simply
turned on or off by pressing the OK button.
Volume Settings: There are several default settings
available in this menu. Volume Reset is turned on or
off by pressing the OK button and controls whether
the zone turns on at its previous volume level, or to
a preset level, fig. 16. If checked, the volume at
zone on reverts to the level set in the next menu
item, Initial Volume. Choosing to set at the current
listening level, or selecting the default –60 dB
level, controls this level. Maximum Volume is an
overall zone volume limit and is set in the same
manner as Initial Volume. Page Volume controls the
level at which a page is amplified in each zone, and
Party Volume sets the initial volume level when the
party or all-on function is initiated.
Advanced Zone Settings: These are parameters for each zone.
They can be easily established in the Configurator software, or
here at each of the zone Control Pads, fig 13.
Source Lockout: Any source selected in this menu will
be locked from access within that zone.
Exclusive Src. Ctl.: This sets a default that
automatically grabs control of any source chosen
within this zone. Other zones will be able to listen, but
they will have no specific source control.
Group: Source Group is a great NuVo feature for large,
open-floor living spaces. In this menu option, any
zone can be set to share source a group of zones to
prevent the likelihood of having more than one source
playing in the same open space. The advantage to
Source Group is that each zone area maintains
individual on/off and volume capability.
Default DND: This prevents the global functions of allon or party and whole-house page from a Control Pad's
specific zone.
22
Default Zone Locked: A locked zone prevents
anyone from turning the zone on and accessing
music without first entering a security code.
Remote Controls: These settings affect the way the
Control Pad receives commands from a handheld
wireless remote. The NV-I8GRC1 is the system
remote that comes with the Grand Concerto. It
allows the same level of control as the Control Pad.
At the default setting All Remotes Enabled, this
remote and any third-party IR remote will be
received by the zone's Control Pad. In some
instances, you may not want a third-party remote
command to be received by the Control Pad. In this
case, you would choose NuVo Remote Only. If the
zone is in an area that is flooded with sunlight or
receives interference from plasma displays, the
best choice is All Remotes Disabled.
Slaved to Zone: A feature of Grand Concerto is the
ability to slave zones together. This is most useful
for controlling a zone with more than one Control
Pad, or the converse, which is controlling more than
one zone with one Control Pad. Simply scroll to the
zone you wish to slave to and select it from the list.
Zone Number: Each zone must be assigned a number
or specific zone address. This is done by scrolling to
the desired zone and selecting it. All used zone
addresses will be grayed out. If you have defined
zones in the Configurator Software, the actual zone
names assigned in the Zone tab of the software will
appear in the list.
Source Settings: Two choices reside in this menu, fig. 14.
Gain: This lets you increase the audio input levels
from the sources coming into the Grand Concerto.
This is not necessary for the NuVoNet
components, but if you use a satellite or cable
set-top box as an audio source for the system,
you will find that the audio level is inherently
softer and will benefit by the gain setting. The
default is 0dB, with a range up to 18.75dB.
NuVoNet Source: If you uncheck this selection,
that source will not be polled by NuVoNet and will
only be IR controllable.

System Settings: This menu option controls system-wide
settings, fig 15.
Date/Time: The Grand Concerto has an internal
clock that allows each Control Pad to display the
current time. Within this menu you can easily set
Year, Month, Day, Hour, and Minute.
External Mute/Page: The EXT. MUTE input on the
back panel of the Grand Concerto has a dual
function. In normal mode, it is designed for the
Mute Interface, NV-MI1 (see NV-MI1 Mute Interface
Adaptor page, ). It can also be configured for use
with a paging phone system to enable whole-house
paging. This requires a phone system that provides
an audio output for paging that is plugged into
source input 6 on the Grand Concerto (note that this
feature eliminates the use of Source 6 as an audio
source for the system). To use the Page function,
you must select Paging Mode. There are two types
of voltage triggers associated with the Page
function. If the phone system you are using sends a
voltage to trigger paging, selecting Paging Mode
sets the mute input to react and mute all zones. If it
triggers by creating a closure (dropping down to 0
voltage), you need to select Active High (Open).
Sources: This Allows unused source inputs to be
turned off so they do not show up when you scroll
through the sources at the Control Pads.
XIII. Using the Control Pad for Music Source Control
The Control Pad is a wonderful interface to all the Grand
Concerto music sources. The MENU, Forward and Reverse, and
Play/Pause buttons ultimately allow complete access to the
sources within the system.
Source Main Menu
When the Control Pad is in basic play-back mode, it defaults
to a large font suitable for reading from a distance. When the
MENU button is pushed, a source-specific menu will appear.
An important feature of the Configurator Software is an
additional Macro Definition window that allows multiple
macros to be defined and automatically added to the source
menu with the label Macros. This is an important function for
sources such as satellite, cable, and multiple-disc changers as
a direct access to channels and discs. Once added as a
playback menu, these can be incorporated as one of the 12
direct access global favorites.

2. CONNECT TO PC: Using one of the supplied RS232 cables, connect from the RS232 port on your computer to this input on the
Learning Station Interface.
3. CONNECT TO GRAND CONCERTO D: Using the second RS232 cable, connect the Learning Station Interface to the Grand Concerto
amplifier's RS232 port.
4. IR EMITTER: An IR mouse emitter is supplied with the Learning Station package. A feature of the Configurator software is the
ability to test each new code that is learned by the interface. The software will send the IR command to the source equipment via
the IR emitter, so you can have visual reference that the source equipment responded appropriately to the command.
5. IR BLASTER: Another built-in IR test method is the use of the blaster. The test process is the same in the Configuration
program, but the IR Blaster allows you to point the back of the Interface box toward the source equipment IR receiver. This fires
the IR command and eliminates the need for the mouse emitter.
25
Capturing IR codes using the IR Learning Station Interface
The Grand Concerto Configurator software is designed to store IR codes for audio equipment in an IR Library. When the codes are
learned for a given piece of equipment, they are held in the library under that equipment's manufacturer name and model
number. Once learned, any of the equipment in the library can be imported into a new Configuration.
To learn new equipment codes, the Learning Station Interface box must be connected to your computer at the RS232 port. Connect
the male end of the RS232 cable to the back of the Interface box into the “CONNECT TO PC” input. At this point, it is not necessary
to have the Interface box connected to the Grand Concerto amplifier.
When setting up a new source, each type of equipment has a pre-selected set of functions. By double-clicking on a function or
clicking on the “Record” button in the software, you will open the record window. You will see the “READY” LED light on the
interface box. Aim the source's remote control at the “IR SENSOR” on the Interface, and press the desired function button on the
remote. The IR learning window in the Configurator software will indicate that the code has been successfully learned. Note that
the remote control should be held 8 to 10 inches from the Interface when learning.
26
NV-MI1 Mute Interface Adaptor (fig. 16)
The Mute Interface is used in conjunction with System Mute input on the back of the Essentia amplifier. It acts as relay for a
voltage from up to two phone lines and two doorbell transformers. When a voltage is presented to the MI1, it sends a contact
closure to the Grand Concerto System, which causes the system to mute momentarily. This is useful in allowing the telephone or
doorbell to be heard when audio is playing in any of the zones.
The NuVo NV-MI1 Mute Interface Module is designed to automatically mute any audio playing through
the System’s speakers when the telephone or doorbell rings.

The MI1 connects to the NuVo amplifier using a standard
mono patch cable with a mini-plug on each end. Plug one
end into the EXT. MUTE input on the back of the amplifier
and the other end into the input on the front of the MI1.
The back of the MI1 will accept up to two AC or
DC voltages from two different doorbell chimes.
This connection is done with two conductor wire
from the terminals on the doorbell chime to the
Doorbell A or Doorbell B inputs on the back of the
MI1. Polarity is not important for this connection.

NV-LSI24 Local Source Interrupt (fig. 17)
The Local Source Interrupt enables an amplified local audio source to override the Grand Concerto System and play through the
local zone in-wall speakers. The most common scenario for this is a television that would benefit from higher-quality speakers.
The back of the Grand Concerto Control Pad has two Cat-5 inputs. One is labeled NuVoNet and is the Cat-5 that runs to the EZ Port
at the head end. The other is labeled NV-I8GLSA. This is intended to react to the LSI24 accessory. It requires an RJ-45 connection
at the Control Pad end and the Brown-and-Brown-Stripe pair as a voltage trigger.
Note that the Local Source Interrupt is a passive non-amplified device. The signal sent to it must be amplified.
The connection from the LSI24 is made
through the NV-IG8LSA RJ-45 port on the
back of the Control Pad terminated with
standard 568A. The connection at the LSI24
requires the use of the Brown lead for
positive and Brown Stripe for negative.

There are two methods for triggering the P2100 from the
Grand Concerto outputs. One is to set the POWER MODE
switch on the P2100 to AUDIO (extreme left) position and
allow an incoming audio signal from the Grand Concerto
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 Grand

An additional feature of Grand Concerto is Zone-Specific
Triggers that will trigger the P2100 only when that zone is
turned on. Utilizing the voltage trigger requires a mono 1/8”
patch cable from either the System ON output on the Grand
Concerto to the P2100 Voltage trigger input, or from the
specific Zone Trigger on the Grand Concerto to the Voltage
Trigger on the P2100, as shown in Fig. 18.
RS232 Interface
The RS232 port allows external two-way communication with
the Grand Concerto System. Home automation systems such
as Crestron and AMX can be set up to operate Grand
Concerto. The RS232 addendum contained in this manual
