The Simple yet Powerful Plug-and-Play Controller for the ZR-6 MultiZone Receiver
Niles Audio Corporation is now shipping the TS-Pro wall-mount color touchscreen: an advanced, customizable control solution for Niles’ award-winning ZR-6 MultiZone Receiver. The easy-to-use TS-Pro features a high-contrast, 3.5″ color touchscreen with a crisp, easy-to-read graphical user interface (GUI) and convenient hard keys that control frequently used functions such as volume and power on/off.
Easily configured without a laptop computer, the system integrator simply connects the TS-Pro to the ZR-6 and the system programming is automatically loaded. Also, system changes made in one TS-Pro are automatically populated to all other TS-Pros in the system.
“The TS-Pro is both simple to install and easy to use, delivering a perfect blend of functionality and flexibility in the form of an elegant, color touchscreen control,” said Frank Sterns, president of Niles Audio. “We designed the TS-Pro to be a true plug-and-play upgrade solution for Niles ZR-6 MultiZone System users that desire a richer, more contemporary control interface,” Sterns added.
The TS-Pro is available now for a MSRP of $799.95.
The user experience of the TS-Pro is enhanced with a metadata display for a connected iPod, station information for the ZR-6’s built-in AM/FM radio, plus the navigation and control of up to four additional sources. The user can also conveniently control any zone of the ZR-6 system from any TS-Pro touchscreen, and each zone can be custom named (Living Room, Den, etc.) to further simplify operation. Also featured is the ability to display custom images to personalize the TS-Pro. Use a picture of the family, kids, or favorite vacation spot for residential users, while commercial users can display their company logo or a marketing message. A built-in IR sensor, plus an additional connection for an external IR sensor, ensures reliable, convenient wireless remote control of connected sources.
The sleek, low-profile design of the TS-Pro complements any surrounding environment. White, almond and bone faceplates are included with each unit. Black and silver faceplates are available as options. The TS-Pro’s rich, full-color touchscreen features five unique color schemes to match any room’s decor or user’s taste.
With the introduction of the TS-Pro, Niles adds to its selection of control solutions for the ZR-6 MultiZone Receiver, which includes the weather-resistant Solo-6MD, a single-gang keypad with metadata display; the Solo-6IR, an elegant single-gang keypad; and the Numeric-6P, an easy-to-use numeric keypad that works in conjunction with the Solo-6IR.
