This listing for the Expander ONLY

The Adagio Audio Expander (AAE) from Crestron® is a high-performance audio distribution processor with integrated multi-channel amplifier. Designed to expand a Crestron Adagio home entertainment system with 6 additional room outputs, the AAE is equally well equipped for use as part of any complete audio distribution solution.

Multi-Room Audio Routing

Built around a 10 x 6 stereo matrix switcher, the AAE delivers professional-quality audio signal routing to 6 amplified room outputs from any of 10 stereo sources. Multiple AAE units may be combined to handle as many as 24 rooms[1].

Preamp Controls

Independent software-driven volume, bass, treble, balance, loudness, and mute controls are available on every room output, enabling listeners in each room to tailor the sound to individual taste right from the room touchpanel or keypad. Additional features include input gain compensation to assure consistent levels between input sources, plus programmable scaling factor to define minimum and maximum levels for each room, and mono summing to accommodate monophonic speaker systems. Front panel pushbuttons are included for room selection when using the AAE in an Adagio system.

Multi-Channel Power Amplifier

The AAE's built-in 12-channel power amplifier delivers a robust 45 watts per channel to support up to 6 separate pairs of speakers. Mute relays on every output ensure silent muting, and provide protection against "thumping" on power-up.

High-End Performance

An advanced Class G amplifier topology produces the great sound of a classic Class AB design with near-digital efficiency. A massive MOH-core toroidal power transformer directs pure, continuous power to each channel, achieving exceptional dynamic range and low distortion sound quality in every room. Gentle power-up is achieved through a "soft-start" inrush current limiting circuit, and quick-response output protection on each channel prevents failure caused by speaker line faults and overheating.

Easy, Flexible Setup

Together with any Crestron control system and choice of keypads and touchpanels, the AAE provides an extensively customizable audio control solution. Programming a complete audio distribution system is a quick and simple task using Crestron SystemBuilder™ software. For Adagio systems, no programming is required at all, with plug-and-play support for a single AAE, or simplified setup for up to 3 AAE's using Crestron Adagio Composer software.

Built-in Cresnet® Distribution

Six powered Cresnet ports are built into the AAE, providing for the termination of keypads and other Crestron devices without necessitating an external distribution block or power supply.
