A-BUS

Amplified Volume Control Systems

Multiroom Simplified

Russound’s A-BUS systems are true multiroom simplicity. Designed for exceptional ease of use, our systems are flexible and modular. From single source systems that allow you to share music throughout your home, to multi-source systems that provide multiple music sources in different locations, Russound offers solutions for any home.

System Expandability

System Expandability

From source components to amplified keypads, an A-BUS system installs using CAT-5 cable and keypads fit into standard low voltage workboxes. Installation, whether in new construction or an existing home, is a snap. The modular design of A-BUS components makes future system expansion painless. Add additional A-BUS hubs or controllers to increase the numbers of system zones.

Simply control

System control couldn’t be simpler. Russound’s A-K4 amplified keypad features an on/off/source selection button, volume up/down buttons, and an IR receiver for control via a remote. It provides robust sound from a keypad no larger than an electrical outlet.
