RTI Now Shipping Powerful AD-8 Eight-Zone Distributed Audio System

SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Sept. 1, 2011 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced that it is now shipping its AD-8 eight-zone distributed audio system, just in time for CEDIA EXPO 2011. For RTI’s dealers, the AD-8 acts as an extension to RTI’s control systems, providing a cost-effective, highly adaptable solution for whole-house or facility-wide audio distribution.

“The AD-8 is the ultimate multiroom audio solution, providing a simple, low-cost way to distribute music from a number of audio sources throughout any residential or commercial installation,” said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “Based on the success of the original AD-4 and the amount of interest the AD-8 has received since its release, we expect it to make a big splash at CEDIA and are very excited to have it shipping in time for the show.”

Containing both a matrix switching pre-amp and a built-in Cool Power(R) class D amplifier, the AD-8 achieves amazing flexibility with eight local audio source inputs that can be further enhanced with remote audio sources. The distributed audio system provides booming sound with 25 watts per channel, and can be paired with RTI’s new 16-channel CP-1650 audio amplifier for additional speaker output in large installations.

Featuring a compact, low-profile design, the AD-8 is suitable for rack-mount or free-standing installations. Access to audio and control of remote sources is clean and simple using the RSP1 accessory wall plate and a single Cat-5 cable. Commercial and residential applications will benefit from a mute function that quiets the music when the doorbell or phone system rings. To meet the needs of larger projects, RTI’s open architecture enables the control of multiple AD-8 units for additional zones.

The unit provides the audio switching, amplification, and distribution functions, while RTI central processors and user interfaces manage the audio source control, user input, and status feedback. Information such as the selected source, volume level, and tone control settings are available for each zone, with more advanced information such as song playlists, cover art, and tuner RDS data also available through tight integration with RTI’s two-way enabled control products.

The AD-8 is available at an MSRP of $1,799. The powerful audio system will be on display at CEDIA EXPO 2011 in booth 3024.
