MZC Series controllers offer seamless iPod integration

RIVERSIDE, CA: January 2005 SpeakerCraft, America¹s original manufacturer of in -wall speakers, announces the first solution available to control and distribute audio throughout the home from Apple¹s iPod.

With over ten million units sold, the iPod is the clearly the leader in portable audio. With its amazingly intuitive interface and plug -and -play simplicity, the iPod has become the defacto source for music, anywhere, at anytime. "The challenge is, once an individual gets used to the iPod they want the same flexibility in their home system." Says Dave Donald, SpeakerCraft¹s Vice -President of Marketing and iPod devotee. "I have my own iPod loaded with music. I am like many others out there who want to listen to that same music at home. That is why this solution is so necessary"

The MZC -66 is SpeakerCraft¹s groundbreaking six -zone, six -source audio/video switcher with on -board amplification and simplistic, software based programming. A powerful keypad based system, the MZC allows an end user the flexibility of selecting and controlling multiple audio
and video sources in up to six indepensent zones throughout the house. Because the iPod codes are imbedded in the MZC system, the MZC/iPod Interface kit allows an iPod to become one of the six sources. With minimal effort and a few hardware connections, the iPod can be controlled from multiple in -wall keypads in six different zones of the house. Whether a person wants relaxing music in the bedroom or party tunes throughout the house, this system delivers.

The kit includes a naviPod for receiving infra -red commands from the MZC, an infra -red emitter, a miniplug to RCA cable for the audio connection, a hand -held remote and four iPod buttons for the keypads. The software commands can be downloaded at no charge from the SpeakerCraft website as part of the EZ Tools programming software.

SpeakerCraft, established in 1976, devoted itself for more than a decade to the design and development of architectural loudspeakers and became known as the prime OEM for many well -known, in -wall speaker brands in the field. In marketing its own brand, now one of the widest lines of custom intallation products in the industry, SpeakerCraft brings with it years of experience and a dedication to dealer satisfaction.

MSRP on the MZC/iPod Interface kit is $75.00
