Features & Specifications

Like the idea of distributed audio—seamless sound throughout the house—but aren't sold on volume controls that you have to get up and adjust every time the phone rings? Acoustic Research has the solution for you. The ARDVC1 is a pioneering concept in that it allows you the complete control of a digital audio system that would typically cost thousands of dollars in the form of a digital volume control. Retro-fitting into just about any traditional whole house audio system that uses autoformer based volume controls is also possible. The only addition to be made is running economical Cat 5 to connect to an IR hub (compatible with most IR hubs, hub sold separately).

An RJ-45 jack on the rear of the volume control provides connection to virtually any IR hub for power (provided by the 12 VDC IR system) and signal. Phoenix-type speaker/amplifier connectors facilitate easy pre-installation. Included are simple installation instructions and an IR remote control. Replacement battery for IR control is a CR2025 3V button cell (sold separately).

Hi Ken: This product was from MCM Electronics who after 40 years went out of business last September 2017. I believe Newark Electric has taken over there product line. Unfortunately, have not know about this product. I think this was part of a multiple room system. Check out the following link. TL/5228
