INTRODUCTION
The Incognito multi-room system is a whole-house entertainment
system capable of distributing audio and video* throughout a home.
The system consists of KP10 keypads with built-in amplifiers
connected to a central AH10 audio hub unit by Cat-5/5e cable.
Source components (CD players, DVD players etc) from almost any
manufacturer can be used and are connected to the AH10 hub unit
by standard stereo RCA /phono leads. Sources connected to the
central hub are distributed to the remote rooms (throughout the
guide referred to as main and sub-zones), so that different rooms
may listen to different things at the same time.
The KP10 keypads are mounted in-the-wall in standard back-boxes
and connected to in-wall, in-ceiling or conventional speakers with
standard speaker cable. The keypads do not require local power and
are powered via the cable from the hub.
The AH10 hub and KP10 keypad utilize A-BUS TM technology, and can
be switched between Incognito A-BUS or standard A-BUS mode
(switches located on the underside of the AH10 and rear of KP10
respectively). A-BUS is a standard which provides compatibility
between systems from various manufacturers. When using Incognito
A-BUS mode and our own keypads, some extra features are possible
such as changing sources from the keypad itself and the fitment of
local input modules. When used with other A-BUS keypads it should
be set to standard A-BUS mode or they will not work.
If video distribution is required a VH10 video switcher can be added
which sends video over RG6 / CT100 co-axial cable to each room
required. Again, different rooms can watch different things at the
same time.
One AH10 hub supports four main-zones and four sub-zones (eight
rooms in total). Each sub-zone output is tied to a main zone output
and always receives the same source as its main zone. Sub-zones
are used for instances such as en-suite bathrooms (the bedroom
being a main zone) where it is desired to to have an area that
automatically follows the same source as another but can be
independently turned on and off, has individual bass and treble etc.
Up to four AH10 (and VH10 where fitted) can be chained for a
system maximum of 16 main zones plus 16 sub-zones.
Enjoy !

LARGER SYSTEMS
Linking Units
Cat-5 patch cable
For large installations which require more than four main zones and
four sub-zones, an AH10 ‘linking’ facility is provided. Units are linked
via a Cat-5e patch cable to the ‘Hub Link’ in and out sockets on the
top right hand corner of each AH10.
In order to share audio input sources with the first AH10, the second
may be joined using Incognito CK10 audio couplers (see diagram).
These double-ended phono plugs simply connect the ‘Loop out’
sockets of the first AH10, to the ‘Audio input’ sockets of the second,
allowing both to access the same sources and distribute them to all
available zones.

PLANNING YOUR SYSTEM
It is suggested that you locate keypads:
AH10 location is critical
See opposite for details
• 138cm height from the floor finish (to centre
of keypad) or taking into account light switch
locations etc
• 25-35cm away from the outer edge of any
door frame or wall edge
• Away from direct, bright sunlight which may
affect infra-red performance
When installing your Incognito multi-room entertainment system,
consideration should be given to detailed advance planning. We
strongly suggest you read this entire manual before commencing
any work.
AH10 A-BUS audio hub
The AH10 is located alongside source components which means
you have two AH10 location options:
1. Locate AH10 and source components in any convenient discreet
location with adequate ventilation within the home (such as an
under-stair cupboard, service room or cabinet), or...
2. If it is desired to use the same sources for the Incognito system as
are being used by a conventional stereo or surround sound system
it is possible to route source equipment through the AH10 for
output through existing hi-fi or home cinema amplifiers whilst also
distributing them to the rest of your home via the Incognito system.
Locate speakers in all
rooms taking into account
location of furnishings for
optimal stereo reproduction
In a bedroom it is suggested that you locate
speakers above or close to bed location for
optimal stereo reproduction
Should this be required, your existing audio source equipment
would be first connected to the AH10 and then routed from the six
loop out sockets on the AH10 to the amplifier/receiver in your
system via high quality audio interconnect cable terminated at each
end by phono/RCA plugs.
Similarly video source equipment may be connected to the VH10
and then routed from the six loop out sockets on the VH10 to the AV
receiver in a home cinema setup using phono/RCA cables designed
for video use.
For this configuration the AH10 should be located behind your
existing system.
14 Incognito multi-room
Incognito multi-room
The AH10 is compact and can be mounted either horizontally, or
vertically, such as on a wall, and is powered by a dedicated power
supply (Incognito PS10).
Each KP10 may be used as a main zone or sub-zone controller, with
the only difference being that the sub-zone must listen to/watch the
same source as the main zone.
Try to ensure that the AH10 and it’s source components are
powered from the same set of mains outlets.
Should extra amplification power, or an active subwoofer be
required (to provide more bass), a line level pre-amp output is
provided on the back of the KP10.
VH10 video hub
The VH10 video hub works in conjunction with the AH10 to provide
video signals to all connected zones, via RG6/CT100 co-axial
cabling. Up to six video input sources and a CCTV input may be
connected and distributed, with their corresponding audio signals
routed through the AH10 as one of its dedicated six inputs.
AS10 / SS10 speakers
When placing the ceiling-mounted speakers, thought should be
given to positions which give the best desired sound coverage
throughout a room, while not interfering with existing or planned
light fittings or joists.
The VH10 may be mounted either horizontally or vertically in the
same manner as the AH10, and power is provided by the AH10 via a
Cat-5e patch cable, so no extra power supply or mains socket is required.
It is advisable to plan all aspects of installation in advance of work
beginning, preferably with the house/flat building schematics if available.
When deciding upon a location for the AH10 and VH10 units consideration should be given to space constraints, and power points for
the source equipment and AH10, as well as integration into any
existing setups.
CCTV system connection
It is possible to connect a CCTV camera to your multi-room system.
Refer to the section on ‘Advanced system options’ for details.
Please note that extra cabling will be required in addition to that
explained in the installation notes.
KP10 A-BUS keypad
Simple and intuitive control is provided by the KP10 A-BUS keypad.
Housed in a stylishly designed casing, the KP10 fits into any wall and
is available with different finishes to compliment various decorative
schemes. Control of your source equipment, volume, bass, treble and
other functions can be performed by the KP10.

AS10 / SS10 in-ceiling speakers
Standard installation would specify AS10/SS10 ceiling mounted
speakers which are matched to the Incognito system for optimum
audio performance. However, virtually any customer-specified
speaker units may be used.
Where ceiling or wall-mounted speakers are used, care should be
taken to ensure that all building regulations are followed.
When mounting speakers flush to a ceiling or wall, ensure that
enough depth/clearance is available in the respective cavity. A
clearance of at least 80 mm is necessary when mounting pairs of
AS10/SS10 speakers.
When deciding upon a ceiling or wall placement, care should be
taken to avoid joists, load bearing beams etc.
Before cutting ceiling loudspeaker holes it is suggested that the
area is tested for clearance by making an L- shaped probe from
strong wire (eg a coat hanger), drilling a small hole in the target area,
inserting the probe and slowly turning. Any obstructions will be
immediately obvious, so that the target area can be moved to a
more suitable position.

FAQs
1. What entertainment equipment can I connect ?
6. What advice can you give for keypad location ?
The Incognito system is compatible with almost any type of hi-fi
or video separate that uses 34–40kHz or 54–58kHz IR system
(nearly all).
When locating a keypad you should avoid putting in direct sunlight
or in close proximity to plasma screens. Care should also be taken
locating it near to devices that produce electrical noise such as
mechanical dimmers. See planning section on page 17.
2. What is the difference between a main zone and a sub-zone ?
A sub-zone can only listen to the same audio source as is being
listened to in the main zone. The sub-zone has independent power,
volume and tone controls from the main zone.
3. How many rooms can a system serve ?
Each AH10 supports four main and four sub-zones. Four AH10s can
be chained together supporting up to a maximum of 16 main zones
and 16 sub-zones. If a larger system is required it is possible to have
two or more separate systems running independently giving
unlimited expandability.
4. Do I have to use Incognito speakers ?
No, but it is highly recommended as the Incognito speakers are
optimised and impedance matched to the keypad amplifiers.
5. How many remote controls can the system have ?
There is no limit to the amount of remotes you can have. If required
you can have a remote in each room.

7. Is there a maximum cable run from AH10 to each KP10 ?
Yes, the maximum cable run is 30 metres / 100 feet.
