RTI has expanded its multiroom audio offerings with 4x4 and 8x8 switchers boasting built-in 25 per channel Cool Power amplification and quick set-up browser-based configuration interfaces. The slimline AD-4x and AD-8x (pictured above) can accommodate four and eight local audio source inputs respectively, in addition to remote sources. There's built-in Ethernet for two-way control and feedback over LAN, with switching and distribution functionality for whole-house audio. Naturally both components integrate tightly with RTI control systems which provide full control of audio sources for each zone.

Expansion possibilities are huge. Up to eight AD-4x and AD-8x units can be stacked, giving a maximum of 64 output zones. Both units feature pre-outputs for outboard amplification (RTI offers the four-channel CP-450 and 16-channel CP-1650). The browser interface allows multiple zones in a larger room or area to be grouped as a single zone for source selection and volume control. 

AD-4X Crop"The web interfaces save time during installation, while the ability to group output zones makes it very convenient for end users to control larger areas or multiple rooms," says Pete Baker, RTI VP of sales and marketing." Stateside, the AD-4x and AD-8x are priced $899 and $1,799, respectively.

RTI is distributed by Invision UK. For more on Invision's product portfolio and services, visit our partner page here.
