Russound KT1-C3 Multizone Audio Kit

Russound will soon ship the KT1-C3 Multizone Kit, the latest addition to its C-Series lineup of multiroom controller amplifiers. The new KT1-C3 provides integrators with a conveniently bundled solution for multiroom audio, with outstanding versatility in an energy-efficient chassis that consumes less than one watt in standby mode. The C-Series replaces Russound's acclaimed CAV6.6 and CAM6.6 systems while maintaining these systems' most popular features.

Russound's KT1-C3 kit includes the new MCA-C3 Multizone Controller Amplifier, six MDK-C5 Multiline Display Keypads and a SRC-C5 System Remote Control, which together comprise a powerful multiroom stereo solution with unique flexibility. The MCA-C3 provides six zones of distributed stereo audio from any of six sources, and the ability to add up to five additional controllers allow the system to be scaled to up to 36 zones.

Featuring 20 watts of power per channel per zone, zones 1 and 2 of the MCA-C3 are equipped with outputs that are selectable for fixed or variable line-level, thus enabling outboard amplification or subzone use. A variety of input options are available in addition to the internal AM/FM tuner with RDS (Radio Data System) support. The MCA-C3 provides an RNET® link using CAT-5e allows for control of a Russound VM1 Video Matrix, or metadata transmission and control from Russound RNET Smart Source components, including the SMS3 Smart Media Server, iBridge® Dock and Bay, and ST2 Tuners with AM/FM and/or satellite radio.

The MCA-C3 also includes a front-mounted USB port for ease of programming, a rear RS-232 port for integration with home automation systems, and a rear panel Ethernet port for programming via a networked connected PC or IP control from third party devices. Third party control of the MCA-C3 is supported by RIO Text and Russound RS-232 hex protocols.

Control of the MCA-C3 is handled via the SRC-C5 System Remote Control or the MDK-C5 Multiline Display Keypad. The SRC-C5 remote provides simplified programming and control via intelligent IR learning capabilities. The MDK-C5 is a wall-mounted, standard fit, double-gang keypad for C-Series Multizone Controller Amplifiers that displays real-time information including playlist, channel, artist, song title, genre and more. Responsive, dimmable hard buttons offer access to virtually every system feature and source control function. For advanced control, an UNO-TS2 touchscreen can be connected to each controller zone.

System programming for the KT1-C3 Multizone Kit is performed via PC and Russound's SCS-C5 configuration software, which is available to Russound dealers from the Russound Dealer site.
