Pragmatic introduces a new and improved cat5 based whole house audio distribution system - PADS(tm)

PADS™ is an affordable whole house music system on cat5 wiring. The hub sends high quality stereo signals and power to the rooms. Each room has a high quality stereo amplifier and volume control in a single gang box for quick install.

(Santa Clara, California, September 12, 2003) The Pragmatic PADS™ (Pragmatic Audio Distribution System) is an affordable whole house music distribution system on cat5 wiring. The PADS hub receives stereo signals over cat5 from remote sending units. The hub distributes the signals and power to high quality stereo amplifiers and volume controls in single gang boxes in the rooms. The basic hub supports 4 rooms but the system is infinitely expandable with additional hubs. The system also supports transport of IR remote control signals back to the source location for control of the audio equipment such as the DVD players, CD players, etc.


The key advantage of PADS™ over other cat5 solutions in the market is the power output and distance capability. The system can deliver very high quality and high output power up to 300 ft. on cat5 cables. Most others are limited to 100 ft. or less distance from the hub and deliver about half or less power per room. Another key advantage is the ability to provide full 20 Hz to 20KHz frequency response for the audio signals. The final key advantage is the price. Starting at just $999 for a complete 4 -room package(sending unit, hub, power supply and 4 in -wall amplifiers with volume control), it offers more power, more performance and more flexibility than any other cat5 based or speaker wire based audio distribution solution on the market. Plus these products are proudly designed and manufactured in USA.
