Want to know how to satisfy a house full of music snobs? Use Core Brands’ new Niles MRC-6430 audio controller to play music in up to six rooms throughout the house. Homeowners will now be able to easily control six distinct music sources with the touch of a button on the Niles MRC-6430 controller.
The MRC-6430 integrates multi-room audio and home theater control in a way that is both simple for the installer to set up and easy for the homeowner to enjoy.
Powered by the new Niles Auriel software and app, the MRC-6430 is a multi-room audio chassis that integrates multi-room audio and home theater control in a way that is both simple for the installer to set up and easy for the homeowner to enjoy.
“With Auriel and the MRC-6430 we are making multi-room audio simpler than ever to install and use,” Yann Connan, Core Brands director of the audio segment, said today. “The number one concern for buyers is that multi-room audio controllers are complicated, so we developed the Auriel software to show them just how accessible it can be. With any smartphone, tablet or Niles in-wall touch panel, users can now quickly select what source they want to play and in which rooms they want it to play. We had the system integrators in mind as well, with the flexibility to include both IP and IR controlled devices, complete GUI generation and six routable IR outputs for external component control. Auriel is wizard-based to reduce installation and set-up time to a fraction of other multi-room systems.”
The Niles MRC-6430 multi-room audio controller delivers its amazing sound throughout the home using an intuitive user interface with options that include a handheld remote, a seven-button keypad, a choice of touch panel devices and of course smartphones, tablets, and personal computers. The MRC-6430 makes it possible to listen to any source, in any room, at any time. This means mom and dad can relax with smooth jazz in the kitchen while guests enjoy classic rock in the living room and the kids sing along to top 40 hits in the backyard. Each group can change their own volume and skip tracks right from their smartphone.
Driven by Auriel and using TCP/IP, the MRC-6430 operates with virtually zero latency and is ready for future expansion into lighting control, remote management, and HVAC control. Auriel leverages the ELAN g! interface to deliver its seamless control consistently across all interfaces. The advanced digital amplifier delivers 30 watts to each zone.
The MRC-6430 can be managed from a variety of mobile devices including iPhone, iPad, Android phone & tablets, plus Windows or Mac-based computers, that provide not only control but display metadata such as playlists and album art—even station information.
The set-up is integrator-friendly. Through the Auriel wizard and a tablet or PC, the installer is whisked through simple decisions that quickly configure the system for sources, zone preferences, user interface customization & home theater control. For larger homes, two MRC-6430s can be paired to create a six-source, 12-zone system. Additionally, all zones are equipped with fixed or variable pre-outs for all zones, making it easy to add power and volume with Niles System Integration Amplifiers.
With an optional Niles DBI-2 interface, homeowners can also route their doorbell through the system, which temporarily mutes music so that the doorbell can be clearly heard in every room.
