New distributed audio system from HAI by Leviton14 January 2013
The new Hi-Fi 2 Four Zone, four source (4×4) distributed audio system is now shipping from HAI by Leviton.
The company says that this latest version is a more compact and inexpensive extension of its Hi-Fi 2 system. It is said to be ideal for controlling, sharing and listening to audio systems in buildings with multiple units, such as town homes, luxury hotel suites, condominiums and small office buildings.
Users will be able to control the new system through the company’s free Hi-Fi 2 app that will soon be available on both iOS and Android devices.
The company says that the Hi-Fi 2 4×4 provides an affordable distributed audio option with 20 Watts per channel that fits directly into a Leviton Structured Media Center wiring enclosure at half-width.
As with the entire Hi-Fi 2 line, the new 4×4 model allows users to listen to and share music sources with any room that has speakers connected to the device. Both local and remote source inputs are standard features, with optional wireless Bluetooth connectivity. The Remote Input Module (RIM) features a routed IR emitter jack for remotely controlling existing source equipment from any room that has a volume source control.
