SRP: £5500.00 (Inclusive of VAT @ 20%).
The Russound MCA-88xi Digital multi-zone controller amplifier provides up to eight zones of distributed audio. Scalable to 48 zones, the MCA-88xi provides numerous options to tailor every room in residential or light commercial distributed audio systems.
A variety of input options have been engineered into the MCA-88X to connect up to 7 individual sources (AV source input options include 8 Analogue & 3 Digital - up to 3 coax, or 2 coax and 1 optical - maximum of 8 total inputs used at once) in addition to its built-in XStream streamer. With it's digital inputs, the Russound MCA-88xi also benefits hugely from Russound's audio 'know-how' as it features three audiophile quality DACs that support high resolution audio up to 24 bit/192kHz.These digital inputs can be perfectly utilised with Russound XSource streamers to extract the best possible audio quality form any source material (hi-res or not).
Having the XStream unit internally (source input 2 - after the bluetooth input on 1) means that out of the box you have a hugely flexible multi-zone streaming solution ready to go. With built-in support for high resolution audio and Apple AirPlay, it couldn't be easier to use or more enjoyable. The XStream unit housed internally within the powerful MCA-88xi enables access to Internet Radio (vTuner & TuneIN), Spotify Connect® and obviously music from NAS drives or PC's on your LAN. Full control and feeedback is available from iOS/Android phones or tablets via the My Russound App, and also with Russound's XTS in-wall touchscreen and MDK-C6 keypads if required.
The MCA-88xi also has a designated Bluetooth extender connection. The Bluetooth connection allows the installation of the MCA-88xi in an equipment rack while remotely locating the optional Russound BTC-1X Bluetooth receiver up to 300’ away in or near the room where the Bluetooth source will be located. Additionally, the BTC-1X improves audio quality through the high performance aptX audio codec. Additionally; an RNET link allows for metadata transmission, linking multiple MCA controllers and connection to all Russound RNET Smart Sources like the ST1 AM/FM external tuner, and also HD video integration with devices such as the Myro:Bridge.
All MCA products are Ethernet enabled devices allowing for IP based features and control. RIO (Russound I/O) allows Russound IP based control systems to integrate with, control, and communicate bi-directionally through an open protocol. In addition to dedicated keypads and touchscreen control options, the free My Russound App (iOS and Android) controls all Russound Ethernet connected products on the LAN including the MCA-88xi and its source components. Additionally, an RS-232 port for integration with serial-connected home automation systems is available for utilization on the rear panel of the MCA-88xi.
The MCA-88xi features 6 zones of high quality amplification, providing 40 watts of power per channel. All zones also feature useful fixed or variable line-level outputs, and as such Zones 7 and 8 are for use with outboard amplification only. This system kit completes the requirement for all eight zones with the inclusion of Russound's compact but powerful D250LS amplifiers. This means that zones 7 & 8 are perfect for larger areas in a project that maybe require a bit more power than zones 1 through 6. by providing 50 watts per channel into an 8 ohm load.
Advanced custom audio settings, party modes, do not disturb, source and zone linking, and all-on/all-off participation are all standard features. The MCA-88xi has alarm and sleep timers, a Home Theater trigger and one 12VDC trigger output for power management and control. Being a 'controller' you can learn in IR codes of all your infra red sources (Sky Boxes, Freeview Boxes or DAB Radios for instance), so alongside your streaming control of Russound XSources' the Russound MCA-88xi can control all of your additional source devices too - via keypad, remote or via App!
With Russound keypads or touchscreens (MDK-C6 or XTS), the MCA-88xi communicates vital information such as preset names, station ID, artist, song titles and album art depending on the capabilities of the source being used. The simpler SLK-1 keypad can also be used for areas where basic control is sufficient such as entry/exit areas of a home or business or any area where the My Russound App might be the predominant control interface.
As you'd expect this system is optimised with the inclusion of Russound's popular and versatile RSF-610 in-ceiling speakers, and when paired with the RSF-610's (a pair per zone/keypad) you will also double the warranty on the complete system. So not only will you have the sonic benefits of using a Russound solution from point to point, you and your customer can benefit from extra piece of mind too!
Like all Russound speakers, the RSF-610's speakers combine premium acoustic materials, with our most advanced drivers to deliver exceptional performance in every application. Russound Acclaim Edgeless speakers feature high quality drivers, sophisticated crossover networks, and advanced designs to ensure optimum reproduction in your home, no matter what the source material may be. The RSF-610's have also been cleverly designed and optimised to enable a very wide dispersion pattern, making them fantastic for multi-room applications where you really want good stereo coverage.
The RSF-610's are a Two-way in-ceiling/in-wall stereo pair featuring a 6.5" polypropylene cone driver with a movable/pivoting PEI tweeter. The RSF-610's feature a fixed, flat driver position but also have a high quality pivoting tweeter assembly in it's two-way design. This enables focused bass and mid-range dispersion, but with high frequency flexibility. The speakers are finished off with new ultra low profile trim-less bezel that magnetically attaches to the speaker, making the installed speaker blend into the ceiling, for an ultra clean and uncluttered finish.
This kit is a popular choice as it saves money on buying components separately.
Note: The MCA-88xi is part of the Russound Certified Installer Required Program and can only be installed and configured by a Russound Certified Installer.
