OVERVIEW: DBI-2 Doorbell Interface
DO THIS FIRST :
Review the MRC-6430 & Auriel Overview
The DBI-2 Doorbell Interface (FG01613) provides doorbell chimes that play throughout the home when installed with a Niles Multi
Room system. It is equipped with four different doorbell sounds, two user recorded sound options, and the ability to play different
sounds for the front and rear doors. Also included is an audio input that can be connected to the audio output of any standard
telephone paging system. The MRC-6430 can be configured to play the DBI-2’s doorbell sounds and telephone system pages
through all, or any number of zones which are selected during configuration of the Auriel-Powered Multi Room System.
Customized Doorbell Sounds
The DBI-2 includes four different doorbell sounds: two versions of the standard doorbell chime sound plus two versions of the
Westminster chime. Chime selection is made via four DIP switches. Also, the delay time between when a chime is triggered and
when the sound is actually generated is adjustable from zero to four seconds via a similar set of DIP switches. If you prefer, a custom
chime sound can be created. An audio source (microphone mixer, CD player, preamplifier, etc.) can be connected to the DBI-2’s
audio input and then recorded to the digital memory.
Dual Doorbell Triggers
The two doorbell inputs, one for the front door and the other for the rear, are connected using simple two-conductor wire. They can
be triggered either by contact closure or by 3V-30V voltage. Native Support For Illuminated Doorbell Buttons - Adds Convenience
And Security.
Audio Paging Input
An audio input is supplied to connect to the audio output of a telephone paging system. To ensure that their volume levels are the
same, the DBI-2 is equipped with separate adjustable output level controls for both the chimes and the telephone
system page.
Audio Paging Output
Use a standard audio cable with male RCA plugs to connect the DBI-2 to the paging input of a Nile Multi Room System.
Chime and Audio Level Adjustments
The sound volume for the chimes and the audio paging are adjustable so they can be set to the same output level.

APPLICATION: DBI-2 Doorbell Interface
DO THIS FIRST :
Review the MRC-6430 & Auriel Overview
What does this Application do?
This application covers the use of a DBI-2 to add doorbell chimes to a Niles Multi Room Amplifier system. The DBI-2 is a MultiZone
accessory that combines both doorbell alerts and traditional phone paging together over one connection to the MRC-6430. This
application allows the end-user to enjoy music throughout the house but not miss any visitor or internal telephone page, the
configured zones that are on will mute and play the doorbell chime /page, the configured zones to turn on and play the doorbell
chime/page and when concluded the configured zones revert to their original state
Key Considerations
The DBI-2 has two doorbell contact closures that can activate one of the six available chimes (four built-in and two recordable).
The unit includes voltage on the doorbell to allow a lighted switch and independent level adjustments for the built-in and recordable
chimes, as well as adjustable delays.
The unit also features 3-30V DC input triggers, and provides a 12V DC output when triggered.
The DBI-2 can be located at the doorbell cabling home run location, and its audio output run through a CAT-5 back to the MRC6430 Multi Room amplifier using two C5-A2 baluns and/or a C5-A2WM wall mounted balun.
Customer Benefits
The DBI-2 allows the doorbell to be heard from multiple locations within a house instead of one location, making it easier to hear.
Also, the built-in chimes are more distinguished than the basic doorbell chime found in many houses, which many customers prefer.
Finally, a custom door chime can be recorded into the unit if so desired.
Installation Benefits
This easy add-on to any MRC-6430 system requires very little wiring and adds a desirable feature to the Multi Room system.
Additionally, it adds a feature that is difficult for competitors to replicate, which makes your system design hard to copy.
Critical Knowledge
The DBI-2 is capable of integrating with lighted doorbell buttons. Please consult the installation guide for more details on how to
wire and setup this feature.
The DBI-2 is needed when door chime over the whole house audio speakers is desired, or when integrating both doorbell and
paging into the single Page Input on the rear panel of the MRC-6430.
The DBI-2 is not needed if only integrating the paging feature from a telephone system into the Page Input on the rear panel of the
MRC-6430.

AURIEL MULTI ROOM SYSTEM DESIGN GUIDE
General System FAQs
Why are there no keypad connections on the rear of the MRC-6430?
The MRC-6430 is an IP based system and as such has no keypad connections on the rear. All user interfaces use internet protocol
to communicate with the MRC-6430 system through the local area network (LAN), either hard-wired or via Wi-Fi. The MRC-6430
and all user interfaces must be connected to the same local area network (LAN).
What is the amplification of the MRC-6430?
The MRC-6430’s built in amplification is 30 watts per channel into an 8 ohm load, 45 watts per channel into a 4 ohm load. Most
distributed audio loudspeakers are 8 ohm compatible, however some are 6 or 4 ohms for greater output. The MRC-6430 internal
amplifier can safely run loudspeakers that are 6 or 4 ohms.
Why or when should I use external amplifiers on the MRC-6430?
An external amplifier should be used to expand the MRC-6430 system. The MRC-6430 has pre-amp outputs for every zone for this
purpose. An external amplifier should be used on zones 1-4 if the 30 watts per channel is not enough to run the desired in zone
loudspeakers, or if you wish to run more loudspeakers in that zone (i.e. outdoor area). The MRC-6430 preamp outputs can be set
for fixed or variable output depending on system design. On zones 1-4 the speaker outputs and pre-amp outputs can be used at
the same time. An example of such usage could be to cover a patio and outdoor area as one large zone. This example would have
the MRC-6430’s zone 4 speaker outputs going to a pair of Niles OS (Outdoor series) loudspeakers under the eve of the patio and
zone 4’s variable pre-amp output going to a Niles SI-1230 amplifier (bridged or un-bridged) to run a number of Niles Weatherproof
Rock loudspeakers scattered throughout the outdoor area. All loudspeakers in this area would play the same music source and
go up and down together with the touch of a button on the zone’s user interface. Use the Niles Online Impedance Calculator
to calculate impedance on zones where more than one pair of speakers is being used http://www.nilesaudio.com/techsupport/
calculator/index.php
Why or when should I use an additional MRC-6430?
An additional MRC-6430 should be used when more than 6 zones are needed in a project, expanding the basic 6 source 6 zone
system architecture. A maximum of 2 (two) MRC-6430’s can be used to create a 6 source by 12 zone system design. Please see
the system design starting on page 16 in this guide for more information.
How do I configure the MRC-6430 system?
The MRC-6430 is an IP based Multi Room Controller and as such configuration of the system is done through the local area
network router using either the nTP7 Touch Panel, 7 inch or larger mobile device (iPad or Android) communicating through Wi-Fi
on the same local area network or using the PC or MAC viewer software. Set-up (Configuration) is integrator-friendly through the
Auriel Software Wizard and, the installer is whisked through simple decisions that quickly configure the system for sources, zone
preferences, user interface customization and home theater control. The Auriel Wizard configuration screens are safely protected
behind a password protected hidden screen.
Can I change the password for configuring the MRC-6430 and HR200?
The MRC-6430 and nHR200 (Wi-Fi remote) use the same password to gain access their configuration screen, this is a fixed
password (cannot be changed) for ease of memory and should not be given to the end-user.
How is the system wired?
The MRC-6430 system is wired using the same custom installation cables as previous Niles Multi Room/MultiZone systems and
are not included. Keypads and touch panels are wired using CAT5 or higher custom installation cabling. The nKP7 7-button
keypads are connected using CAT5 or higher cable to a PoE (Power over Ethernet) network switch only. The nTP7 Touchpanel can
be connected using CAT5 or higher cable to the same PoE switch or can be powered locally (local powering requires additional
2 conductor power cabling) The MRC-6430 is wired to the network switch or router using CAT5 cabling. Sources are connected
using line-level RCA cables for source audio and IR flasher cables (for control of IR sources) as needed. Streaming music sources
must also be connected to the network switch or router for control (with compatible built-in drivers) and streaming services. The
MRC-6430 connects to your speakers using 2-conductor speaker wire. For most applications, we recommend you use 16 or 18
gauge wire. For speaker wiring runs longer than 80 feet we recommend 14 gauge wire.

AURIEL MULTI ROOM SYSTEM DESIGN GUIDE
How do I update the system for newer product integration?
The MRC-6430 system and user interfaces such as the keypad and touchscreen use the Auriel Software. The Auriel Software is
essentially the operating system and is pre-loaded at the factory. Based on production cycles and inventory stocking it is possible
that the Auriel Software on the MRC-6430 should be updated. Updating the Auriel Software can be accomplished by downloading
the latest version from the Niles Audio support site, then connecting the PC laptop to the Local Area Network (LAN) that the MRC6430 system is connected to, using a CAT5 cable and running the self-executing software update.
How do I integrate a Home Theater system?
The MRC-6430 is a Multi Room Controller that can integrate a Home theater system one of two ways;
1) The Theater system is a separate zone (from the 6 built-in zones of the MRC-6430)
a. All sources connected to the AVR can be shared with the Whole House Music capability of the MRC-6430 using the zone 2
output of the AVR and an IP built-in driver with compatible AVR’s
b. Any Whole house sources connected to the MRC-6430 can be shared with the AVR by using the LOOP Output line level jacks
of the MRC-6430 connected to a source input of the AVR
2) The Theater system can be a zone on the MRC-6430 by utilizing a zone pre-amp output of the MRC-6430. An example would
be the Zone Pre-amp out of zone 5 can be run to a single audio input of the Home Theater AVR, thus sharing all of the house-wide
audio sources of the MRC-6430 through one audio input of the AVR.
How many AVRs can I have?
The Auriel Software will allow for one Home Theater to be integrated.
Source FAQs
Are there any sources built into the MRC-6430?
No, there are no sources built-in to the MRC-6430. There are 6 source Line Level inputs that will accommodate many different
types of sources.
What sources can I integrate into the MRC-6430 system?
The six source inputs are line level and can accommodate many different types of sources. Line level audio from any source can
be brought into the MRC-6430 even if the source is not IR controllable, examples of these would be legacy devices such as tape
decks, basic iPod docks, CD players, computer audio, even phonographs (using a phono-preamp).
Sources that can be controlled from a MRC-6430 user interface are separated into two categories; IR controllable and IP controllable.
The MRC-6430 has a built-in IR database of codes to control sources from around the world! The IR database is cloud-based and
is updated frequently. IR controllable sources are items like Cable or Satellite set-top boxes, Outboard AM/FM tuners, CD\DVD or
BluRay Players, Media players like Apple TV and Roku, Game Systems and iPod docks.
The MRC-6430 has built-in drivers for controlling sources via Internet Protocol (IP). These drivers are built-in, tested and allow
two-way feedback and control of sources like Tuners\Internet Tuners built into AVR receivers from many third-party manufacturers.
There are also two-way feedback drivers built-in to control media player sources such as Sonos, Autonomics, Yamaha Aventage
and Logitech Music Service (LMS) based media players such as Fusion Research and S1Digital. The two-way feedback include
various levels of Metadata and album art to be shown on the Auriel based user interfaces. The level of Metadata feedback is limited
to the media player and music service.
How do I integrate an iPod into the system?
iPods as a source can be integrated two ways
An iPod can be a simple audio source with no control by taking the audio from the iPod and connecting it to the MRC-6430 source
audio input RCA connectors. The connection from the iPod can be from the headphone jack or from a dock line level audio output.
Secondly, there are several IR controllable iPod Docks that are listed in the IR Database that provide basic control such as Play,
Stop, Track\playlist skip forward and back. iPod Docks with Auriel IR control have no metadata feedback.
29
AURIEL MULTI ROOM SYSTEM DESIGN GUIDE
How do I integrate streaming music services into the MRC-6430?
The MRC-6430 does not have any music services built-in, music services are provided by third-party media players.
Media streaming services such as Spotify, TuneIn, Pandora and Rhapsody are subject to your country and media player availability.
All IP controllable media players have support pages that detail the services available for their customers, additionally not all
services are available world-wide. Niles has a Technical Resource Dealer Website that has Integration Guides that detail some of
the specifics for supported and unsupported features for the media players we have drivers for. It is recommended to always read
these Integration Guides before selling/integrating a music service for a client.
How do I control more than 6 IR controllable sources?
The IR outputs on the back of the MRC-6430 are available to be used with IR control sources and Home Theater TVs. There are 6 IR
outputs that are completely assignable even though they are placed near the source audio inputs. This means the IR output located
next to Source Input 1 can be used to control source 1 or can be re-assigned to control another source or the home theater TV (if
needed). Use the Auriel configuration screens to assign multiple sources or the Home Theater TV/sources to the same IR output of
the MRC-6430. Connect a Niles dual headed MicroFlasher™ to control two devices from the single IR output. Alternatively connect
a Niles IR Main System Unit (MSU) to allow more than one IR Flasher to be utilized from any of the single IR output connections.
Please refer to the system design on page 22 for reference and further details.
How do I add to/change the IR library?
The Cloud Based IR library is a very large collection of IR codes that Niles has gathered, vetted, and verified to contain the largest
amount of devices that are likely to be used with the MRC-6430 system. The IR database has been captured so that function
keys/buttons for sources are automatically mapped to interface templates to simplify the configuration process, and as such every
device has been vetted and verified and is a representation of current and legacy devices from around the world. The database
includes Domestic and International manufacturers in such categories as Media Management, Set-top Boxes (Cable and Satellite),
CD players, DVD and Blu-ray players, Tuners, TVs/projectors, iPod docks and Gaming systems. Each category of source devices/
TV/projectors has many manufacturers and service providers, including OEM manufacturers so the device you are looking for is
likely to be in the IR database. The Niles MRC-6430 technical support-only website has a list of devices in the IR cloud database,
however if you should find that a device that you need isn’t in the library, a code is miss mapped, a code is missing, or a code
doesn’t function (for the latest model) there is an IR request form that can be filled out and submitted to Niles Technical Support for
addition/amending of the Cloud based IR Database. Once submitted these request are evaluated and the Database is amended.
Once the Cloud database is amended then all the installer needs to do is remove the IR controlled device in question, power cycle
the MRC-6430 (while it is connected to the customer’s network, with outside/internet connection), the MRC-6430 then re-pings
the “IR Cloud” to update the IR library, the IR controlled device can be re-added to the configuration and changes will be applied.
The Niles Auriel IR Cloud Database is updated regularly and the list of said devices is updated with when the last changes have
been made.
User Interface FAQs
What are the available options for the customer to control the MRC-6430 system?
The MRC-6430 has many options for the end-user to operate the system, from the nHR200, a hand-held Wi-Fi remote control, the
nKP7, a 7 button one-gang wall mounted keypad, the nTP7, a 7 inch portrait or landscaped mounted touch screen, a PC or MAC
computer viewer, to mobile device control like iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablets. Please refer to the section of this design
guide on page 8 for more information.
How are the keypads and touch screens powered?
The nKP7 requires the use of a PoE (Power over Ethernet) injecting device. The PoE device must adhere to the IEEE 802.3at
standard, 13w maximum draw (@48 V 270mA max). The nTP7 may be powered locally or with a PoE (Power over Ethernet) injecting
device. When powering locally a 12v 1A power supply will need to be used. When powering the nTP7 with a PoE switch, or PoE
injector, the device must adhere to the IEEE 802.3at standard, 13w maximum draw (@48 V 270mA max). There are a wide arrange
of 3rd party PoE switches and injectors available to accommodate the system application.
30
AURIEL MULTI ROOM SYSTEM DESIGN GUIDE
Does the MRC-6430 support more than one HR200?
Currently the Auriel Software driven MRC-6430 supports only one nHR200 hand-held Wi-Fi remote. This remote control was
designed to integrate both whole house music and home theater control into one remote that operates the same way the touch
screen and mobile device control works, so your client needs to learn only one intuitive interface and he can use any of them!
Why do I see blank/unused buttons on my IR controllable source interface in the
Auriel Viewer?
The MRC-6430 was designed to be very easy to configure/set-up with the built-in wizard Auriel software. The Auriel configuration
wizard screens auto-map function buttons for all devices and as such do not provide any “Dragging and Dropping” of IR commands
but automatically map the most commonly used commands and the right level of control you should be providing the end-user. As
an example, when a satellite set-top box is configured the Channel numbers, Channel Up, and Channel Down are automatically
mapped along with other functions, but not all functions found on the original remote may be mapped and some buttons are left
blank (with no function assigned/mapped) on the touch screen based user interface. This is a normal occurrence and should be
no cause for alarm.
Replacement Questions
Are there any parts or pieces of Niles previous Multi Room/MultiZone systems that
are compatible with the new MRC-6430 system?
The MRC-6430 is not backward compatible with any other Niles Multi Room system or user interfaces. The MRC-6430 was
designed with a completely new architecture to address Niles Dealers/Installers and End-user request for mobile device control. This
request for mobile device control and demand for streaming music services with feedback led to an architecture that is IP based,
whereas none of the previous Niles MultiZone were IP based. Previous Niles MultiZone systems (ZR-4630, ZX-8630AV, A4.6Ci,
ZR-4, ZR-6 or IntelliControl ICS GXR-2 systems) can be completely pulled out including the user interfaces and the new MRC-6430
can use the existing CAT5 and speaker wiring, however the CAT5 cable used for the keypad and touchscreens of the older Niles
MultiZone system should be examined to be terminated using T568A or T568B. That CAT5 cable can be used with the new Niles
user interfaces nKP7 and nTP7 but must be connected to the same customer’s local area network via a PoE switch. The speaker
wire infrastructure can be used on the new MRC-6430 Multi Room system.
