Multi Zone Audio Extender

The EL-IPD-AMP-EXT Multi Zone Audio Extender complements the Nice/ELAN IP amplifier and preamps to add up to 8 zones of audio over existing networks using Dante™


The EL-IPD-AMP-EXT is used in conjunction with an amplifier or preamp in the Nice/ELAN family of IP enabled amps to add up to 8 zones of audio.

Configure speaker outputs as left, right, or mono with single or multiple speakers connected to each. Four line level audio outputs can be configured as left, right, mono, or subwoofer out.

Each output or combination of outputs can be configured as separate zones with EQ and lip sync delay applied to any zone individually.

ELAN IP enabled audio distribution simplifies whole house audio distribution and enhances the intelligent home by delivering high quality audio over the existing network. Easily scaling from a single chassis solution to a decentralized multi-chassis / multi-source implementation, Nice/ELAN IP audio distribution meets the needs for projects of up to 64 individual zones.
