Danger

Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause a permanent hearing loss. Individuals vary considerably to noise induced hearing loss but nearly everyone will lose some hearing if exposed to sufficiently intense noise for a sufficient time. The U.S. Government's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specified the following permissible noise level exposures:

DURATION PER DAY (HOURS)

8

6

4 3 2 1

SOUND LEVEL (dB)

90

93

95 97 100 103

 

 

 

 

According to OSHA, any exposure in the above permissible limits could result in some hearing loss. Ear plugs or protectors in the ear canal or over the ears must be worn when operating this amplification system in order to prevent a permanent hearing loss. If exposure in excess of the limits as put forth above, to insure against potentially harmful exposure to high sound pressure levels, it is recommended that all persons exposed to equipment capable of inducing high sound pressure levels, such as this amplification system, be protected by hearing protectors while this unit is in operation.

CAUTION

RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK

DO NOT OPEN

CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO

1. POWER Button: The amplifier is designed to be turned on and remain on. The power button supplies power to the system. Each zone can then be turned on or off independently. The amplifier should be turned on before any external connections are made. This activates internal protective circuitry.

2. STAND BY LED: When lit, this blue LED(light-emittingdiode) indicates that the amplifier is plugged into an AC power outlet source.

3. Zone Status LED's: These LED's indicate the power status of each zone. When a zone LED is lit, it indicates that the zone is currently turned on.

Essentia Back Panel

1. Audio Source Inputs: The Essentia amplifier accepts up to six audio sources. A source consists of any audio component capable of supplying a line level signal.

2. Source Link: Thismulti-pinconnection is used to transfer the audio information from the Essentia main amplifier to the expander amplifier. This output is used to expand the system to twelve zones. The Audio Link connection cable is provided with the Essentia D Expander package.

3. Variable Lineout: The variable lineout is intended for zones where additional amplification is needed and the Essentia keypad is used to control the volume of all the speakers in that zone.

4. Fixed Lineout: The fixed lineout is intended for zones where additional amplification and separate volume control are needed.

5.Speaker Outputs: Individual stereo speaker outputs for each zone provide 20 watts output per channel.

6.Zone Triggers: These outputs provide a12-voltoutput when the corresponding zone is turned on. This is used to trigger

external equipment specific to a given zone.

7. Emitter Outputs: These outputs transfer IR (infrared) signals, repeated from a zone keypad, from the Essentia amplifier to the audio source equipment. There are six source specific outputs and two “sum” output that sends IR signals regardless of the selected source.

8. System On: This output provides a constant12-voltoutput when any zone is turned on. This is used to trigger external devices.

9.External Mute: This is designed to mute any audio playing through the system when the phone or doorbell rings.

10.Network Input: This RJ45 connection is the input for all zone information coming from the Essentia keypads. The

connection is made using the Network Cable supplied with the package.

11. Digital Link: Thismulti-pinconnection transfers all the digital information from the main amplifier to the expander amplifier. This output is used to expand the system from six to twelve zones. The Digital Link connection cable is provided with the Essentia D Expander package.

12.RS232 Port: The RS232 serial port allowstwo-waycommunication for control by a home automation system.

13.AC Power: A detachable power cable supplies power to the Essentia System from any AC outlet.

2. Whole-Home Control: This section automatically performs the basic Essentia keypad functions.

3. Transport Buttons: The transport buttons perform basic source specific functions, such as play, stop, pause, forward and reverse.

4. Video Source Control: These buttons are typically used by video equipment for menu navigation and selection.

5. Source Volume: This is source specific volume control, such as a TV or stereo receiver. This is not used for NuVo zone volume.

6. Numeric Buttons: These buttons provide source specific direct numeric access.

7. Power Button: This power button is for source specific power on and off. It is not for NuVo zone on and off.

8. Channel up and down: This button provides source specific channel scrolling.

9. Macro Buttons: These buttons do not perform a given source function. They can be used for programming multiple function macro commands.
