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.

1

NV-E6DMS6-source,6-zonedigital audio distribution amplifier

6

NV-E6DKPCkeypads, with 1 bag of preprinted source buttons, ivory, and almond

1Installation manual

Step 2:

Place the Essentia amplifier in its preferred location. The Essentia amplifier is designed to be located in the central media area where the home’s audio sources will be housed.

Step 3:

The Essentia amplifier should be turned on before any other cables are plugged in. This activates internal protective circuitry. Once the Essentia amplifier is turned on, it should be left on.

Step 4:

When the amplifier is in its location and turned on, the audio sources can be connected using stereo RCA cables. These cables connect the left and right channels from the audio output of the source equipment to the appropriate source input on the Essentia amplifier. The IR (infrared) emitters should be plugged into the IR outputs on the back of the amplifier and attached to the IR window of the corresponding source equipment.

Step 5:

Each of the Cat-5cables from the zones should be crimped with anRJ-45connector using 568A or 568B wiring (see page forCat-5crimping instructions). Test eachCat-5connection using a cable tester before proceeding with the installation. Each cable plugs into one of theRJ-45connection jacks on the back of the supplied EZ Port. It is important for future reference to label eachcat-5cable for its appropriate listening zone. The order in which they are plugged into the EZ Port is irrelevant to the system’s operation.

Step 6:

Install the EZ Port in a standard dual gang low voltage bracket. We recommend the Carlon SC100R "Old Work Bracket", or the SC100A "New Construction Bracket". These are designed for low voltage electronics and have an open back for easy access to the back of the EZ Port.

6

Step 7:

Connect the provided pre-terminatednetwork Cable in theRJ-45connection jack on the front of the EZ Port and in the Network Connection on the back of the Essentia amplifier.

Step 8:

Each zone is easily set using the DIP switches located on the back of the keypad. Switches 1-4are used to set a unique address for each zone and are noted with a "1" indicating the down position of the switch and a "O" indicating the up position. Refer to the chart on the back of the keypad for the correct switch position for each zone. Page 17 provides a visual reference of all of the available switch settings.

Step 9:

Switches 5, 6, & 7 are used to adjust the amount of bass and treble response in each zone. There are eight possible settings. The choices are a bass and treble boost, two levels of bass boost, two levels of treble boost, bass cut, treble cut, or flat. The positions for these settings are also shown as "1" for down and "O" for up and are shown on page 18.

Step 10:

Switch 8 allows multiple zones to share the same source. This is useful for large living spaces such as a kitchen, breakfast nook, and dinning room where there are no walls defining each room. When switch 8 is in the up "O" position, all keypads with the same setting will then always turn on at the same source. This does, however, allow individual volume and on/off control. This setting is shown on page 18.

Step 11:

Switch 9 sets the volume level when the zone is turned on. The choices are to have the zone turn on at the same level it was at when it was previously turned off (switch 9 in the down "1" position), or to turn on at a low volume level (switch 9 in the up "O" position). This setting is shown on page 19.

Step 12:

Once the desired switch settings have been made for each keypad and they have been installed in their zone locations, you will be able to turn each zone on and off, control volume, and choose audio sources independently. These functions can also be done wirelessly using the NuVo RC2 remote control. The built-inIR receiver in each keypad also allows for direct control of the audio source equipment using that equipment’s remote control or a universal learning remote control.
