The Sonance Trio Triple Tuner, designed for homes and commercial buildings outfitted with multi-zone audio systems, features 3 built-in AM/FM tuners, allowing listeners to play up to 3 different stations simultaneously over the same audio system
Sonance®, the leader in architectural audio, has introduced the Sonance Trio Triple Tuner, an AM/FM tuner designed for homes and commercial buildings outfitted with multi -zone audio entertainment systems. Featuring three built -in tuners, Trio can play up to three different stations simultaneously over the same audio system, allowing listeners in different rooms to choose stations without interrupting or changing another listener's selection.
Trio is the first and only multi -zone tuner equipped with RDS technology, enabling users to search for stations by program format or call letters rather than by frequency. However, Trio's 45 station presets, accessible via remote or its front panel control, will minimize the need for station scanning, except for the most obscure or rarely listened to broadcasts.
"Radio is still far and away Americans' most common source of news and entertainment, with more than 100 million listeners every day," said Petro Shimonishi, Sonance director of marketing. "For years, Sonance installers have been designing residential and commercial audio systems with two, three, or more separate radio tuners. Trio makes the job much easier, plus it offers many conveniences, such as rear -panel serial and network controller connections (RS485 & RS232) and a front panel headphone jack, that simplify installation, set -up, and maintenance."
Shimonishi said Trio was designed for use with Sonance's new multi -zone control system, the Sonance Navigator Harbor and the Navigator K2, and other Sonance controllers. The Trio features several tuning modes and provides built -in compensation for U.S. Standard and European AM broadcast standards.
The Trio triple tuner has two coaxial FM antenna connectors, allowing connection to an outdoor aerial as well as radio services delivered by cable or DSS, and 1 coaxial AM connector for connection to an outdoor aerial as well. All signal outputs are made via standard RCA jacks on the tuner's rear panel.
Trio can stand on a shelf or be rack -mounted for maximum space efficiency.
The Trio triple tuner is only one rack space high. The manufacturer's suggest retail price for Trio is $850.00. It is available in late July.
