Xantech Displays DDS DIGI5™ Digital Delivery System

DIGI-5™ technology delivers high-quality digital sound over Cat-5

- Xantech (booth #1N73), a leader in the field of audio/video remote control and distribution, is displaying the DDS Digital Delivery System, utilizing DIGI-5™ amplified keypad technology, which uses Cat-5 wiring to distribute audio. DDS provides cleaner audio at louder listening levels than previous similar analog systems. With powerful, dependable and intuitive operation (with no extra programming necessary), RS-232 control compatibility, audio distribution to anywhere from four to 28 Zones, and a number of other exclusive features, Xantech's DDS is perfect for residential homes, condo/apartment complexes, hotels, restaurants, resorts, coach buses and RVs, etc.


Cat-5 systems are easier to wire and install than other methods of distribution, at a more cost-effective price point with convenient and straightforward packaging options for the consumer. Cat-5 is quickly becoming the de facto standard in new homes and multiple-dwelling unit infrastructures. DIGI-5 patent-pending technology is the result of years of research to develop an affordable, scalable and easy-to-install distribution system that delivers high-quality digital sound to multiple rooms/zones over a Cat-5 wiring network. DIGI-5 brings to the custom installation/electronics marketplace a platform that provides a level of flexibility and sonic sophistication heretofore available only in much costlier and more labor-intensive multi-room systems. DIGI-5's end-to-end digital architecture ensures that the entire signal path of the audio system remains in the digital domain from start to finish, meaning that noise, signal loss and other unwanted audio-degrading effects, even over long wire runs, are eliminated.

The units' Amplified Digital Keypad (30W/Channel) features five-button control for volume, system power, mute, party mode and EQ adjustment. It has a built-in IR receiver with an external IR input on the back for remote placement. It is very easy to install and intuitive to use. Since the Keypad is amplified, speaker wiring is dramatically reduced, as no home-run is required. Speakers connect directly to the in-wall single-gang keypad within in the room.

Xantech's DIGI5 system is available in standard rack-mount configurations or as a "flat-pack" design. For more information, please visit www.xantech.com.
