The C-6 Supports Six Independently Operated Zones, as Well as Five Audio/Video Source Components, in Addition to a Built-In AM/FM Tuner Module

ORLANDO, Fla., March 30, 2006 - Nexus Audio Systems (Barrie, Ont., Canada), a leader in audio/video distribution systems, announced that it will feature the award -winning C -6 Multi -Zone A/V Controller at the Electronic House Expo (EHX) Spring 2006, held from March 30 - April 1 at the Orange County Convention Center (Orlando, Fla.), booth #965. The C -6, which won a RESI Award for "Best A/V Controller/Receiver" during the 2005 CEDIA Show, supports six independently operated zones, as well as five audio/video source components, in addition to a built -in AM/FM tuner module.

"The greatest feature of the C -6 is its 'Phantom Control' technology," explained Victor Berry, founder and president of Nexus Audio Systems. "The C -6 requires no special control wiring by integrating easily onto the same four wires used to drive the speakers. This makes the C -6 the perfect choice for any installation. With new or existing construction, the C -6 provides the greatest flexibility, ease of operation and simplicity of installation of any multi -room product on the market today."

The C -6 system is expandable to 18 zones using the X -1 and X -2 Expansion Controllers. The K -8 and K -22 Keypads provide simple, intuitive control. Both models control Zone Power, Source Selection, Source Control, Volume, Treble and Bass. With an easy to read backlit LCD that also conveniently displays the tuner frequencies, there is never any question to the user of system status, the source selected, or volume. The K -22 provides the additional flexibility of direct tuning, disc and track selection. In Group Mode, the K -22 Keypad can scroll and display configurable zone names to aid in setting up groups for temporary 'Party Mode' configurations. Both Keypads feature an Infrared receiver that can be used with the R -1 Handheld Remote for additional flexibility and armchair control.
