Russound ALTX-WIRI2D - 126W Volume Control with IR Receiver

In-Wall 126W Volume Control with IR Receiver
NOW - £120.00 (Inclusive of VAT @ 20%)

The ALTx-WIRi-2D is a wall-mounted 126-watt volume control with a built-in infrared (IR) receiver and a Decora®-style wall plate. It connects between the speaker outputs of an amplifier or receiver and a pair of speakers. The IR receiver detects signals from a hand-held remote control and relays them to the audio source equipment, allowing convenient operation from another room. This lets you sit and enjoy the music without having to get up to change the program.

Using Ultra-Match technology, the ALTx-WIRi-2D allows installers to easily match the load of multiple speaker pairs to the amplifier impedance without the need for a speaker selector or other impedance-matching equipment. All Russound volume controls are made with precision autoformers for high-fidelity sound, excellent frequency response, no heat buildup, and maximum power transfer from the amplifier to the speakers.

The IR receiver requires additional wiring, an 857 IR connecting block, IR emitters, and a 12 VDC power supply. It require a US 1 Gang J-Box for fitment (S1-18-R or S1-18-W) and also a coverplate (SWP-1), and is available in multiple finishes.
