You’ve purchased the finest music distribution system available today. The DMS-1200 is a native to the network, CD quality digital music distribution system with a range of keypads and remote controls that not only fully control your music but control of all your other audio video components.
The DMS-1200 in many ways is the heart of your system, both distributing music to your speakers and distributing streams of music from your analog sources to other DMS amplifiers in the system. This makes your system scalable, and easy to add additional rooms at any time in the future. All you need is a DMS amplifier connected to the network to make any room a new DMS music room.
Along with the DMS-1200, your system will include a Master
System Controller like the MRX-10 (the brain of the system) and as many digital music gateways as you have users via the unique URC SNP-1 Streaming network Player.
Each player provides one user with access to all of their music and all of their preferences and favorites. Each SNP-1 accesses what’s stored on the network and what is available through the internet via Pandora, Rhapsody, XM, Sirius and Internet
Radio. SNP-1s don’t have to be installed in the room where the DMS resides. That way you can take advantage of the TV display of cover art, album name, artist names and song title in rooms with TVs by having your installer connect to one of your TVs in the system.
The DMS-1200 is designed for professional installation only.
He or she will help you select the right user interface for every room of your installation. You’ll have a choice of Total
Control in-wall keypads and remote controls. If you have questions, call our customer service center at:
Unlike other digital music systems, the DMS system streams all music uncompressed at pure CD quality levels. You enjoy all the detail of your original source.
Any room can be linked with any other room to listen to the same source. This makes it easy for you to entertain by simply linking all the rooms your guests will be in and controlling the music from any remote or keypad.
The DMS-1200 is engineered first and foremost for reliability. It offers extensive internal protection against failure and is manufactured in our ISO 9000 certified factory with the utmost attention to quality control at every stage of manufacturing, from parts procurement to final assembly.
LEDs indicate that the DMS-1200 is connected to power and connected to the local area network.
The DMS-1200 is powered off and in an automatic standby state when no zones are active.
The front panel reset button offers the end user a quick way to reconnect the DMS-1200 to the local area network.
The IEC power socket enables either UL/CSA approved
110V power cords or CE approved 220V power cables to be used with the DMS-1200. The internal power supply automatically switches from 110V to 240V.
A whisper quiet fan automatically engages to keep the internal temperature optimum for long life and reliable operation.
A 10/100 LAN connection ensures that the DMS-1200 will receive all network streams from other DMS or
The DMS-1200s internal amplifiers will power six pairs of 8 ohm speakers with 50 watts per speaker.
Each pair of speakers can listen to any DMS source.
The two preamp zones enable external power amplifiers to be used for rooms with a need for more or less power than 50 watts per channel. External amplifiers equipped with 12V triggers are ideal, since they will automatically switched on when the zone is in use, and switched off when the zone is off.
Up to four analog audio sources can be connected to the DMS-1200. Each is simultaneously available as a
DMS stream on the network, not just to the DMS they are connected to, but all other DMS amplifiers on the same network.
When connected to a URC RF base station, a one-way
URC remote control can be programmed to control any or all zones.
This unit shall be connected to a mains socket outlet with a protective grounded connection.
To completely disconnect this product from the mains, disconnect the plug from the wall socket outlet. The mains plug is used to completely interrupt the power supply to the unit and must be within easy access by the user.
