Weather-ResistantKeypads Install the keypads where you want, even in areas that get wet like bathrooms, spas or out on the patio by the pool.

4 Ohm Stable Digital Amplifier Advanced low-heatdigital power amplifi er design delivers eight channels of robust power (40 watts per zone/20 watts per channel) with the ability to comfortably drive two pairs of 8 ohm speakers per zone.

Hand-HeldRemote Control Provides advanced control for the system’s audio sources as well as the local TV and a second local source, i.e., cable/satellite receiver. It comes preloaded with the commands for theZR-4and many popular brands of equipment. Unique commands can be learned by the remote.

Plasma/LCD-ProofIR Sensors Each keypad has abuilt-inIR sensor that resists interference from flat-panelplasma or LCD TVs. The IR sensor is defeatable for areas with direct sunlight.

Voice Paging and Doorbell Chimes The ZR-4’spaging input enables you to connect a telephone system’s paging output and/or an optional NIlesDBI-1Doorbell Interface so that it automatically pauses the music and plays through the system.

Perfectly Calibrated Sound Independent bass, treble, and variable loudness controls enable you to custom tune each zone for the best sound quality and match room acoustics from zone to zone.

Party Mode With a single press and hold from a keypad or remote control, the user can turn on the entire house (or a preset number of zones) to listen to the same source, which is ideal for entertaining or setting the mood.

Zone Linking Program up to four zones so that turn-on,source selection, andturn-offwork in unison. Each zone retains independent volume, bass, treble and variable loudness control, which is a great feature for a restaurant/ bar or for adjacent rooms such as a master bedroom and master bath.

Share Your Home Theater Components The ZR-4is designed to intelligently manage source sharing with an independent home theater system.

Flexible Control Options The ZR-4MultiZone Receiver can be controlled by secondary control systems viaRS-232devices and/or discrete infrared commands.
