The Opus 300 system is based on commonly available Cat5 and coaxial cabling delivering audio and video throughout the home from a central hub. The MCU300 (hub) is usually located in a service cupboard but is so small that it can also be mounted behind a hi-fi system enabling existing source components to be shared across the home. In such an installation, the traditional hi-fi or home cinema experience can be retained for the main zone - simply the best of both worlds!
In every room simple keypads and remote controls provide intuitive yet sophisticated control over the system and sleek in-ceiling speakers guarantee punchy stereo reproduction.
Opus 300 delivers new standards at a more affordable price than ever before using low-cost and easy to install Cat5 cable to deliver music, power and control commands to each keypad. As such, no additional power supply is required. There’s even a ‘keypadfree’ option thanks to the revolutionary remote controlled AMR650 active inceiling speaker.
An Opus 300 master control unit (MCU300) will serve up to eight rooms, four main zones and four sub zones, which can even be daisy-chained to allow a single system to serve as many as 32 rooms. Up to six sources can be connected to enable each room to enjoy different music and / or video concurrently. Video is distributed by a simple but highly effective video switching unit(VSU300) and a single run of high quality RG6/CT100 co-axial cable to each room.
A range of accessories is also available to ensure the perfect Opus 300 set-up. These include IR emitters, learning remote controls and extra power supplies for use when sub-zones are included. Additionally, premium speakers and brushed steel keypads are often selected as upgrades.
Opus 500 is a complete whole-house entertainment solution which provides stunning quality music and video throughout the home and is extremely easy to install, use and service. A single run of Opus’ own Balanced Transmission Cable (BTC) to each zone ensures simple installation and interference free reliable signal transfer. Up to 5 sources of any make can be connected and then controlled by our intuitive touchscreen keypads Various options and accessories are available for every home.
The heart of your Opus system is something you won’t see very often!
With Opus, there are no ugly boxes of electronics or cables to clutter your home. Instead, the Opus hub – essentially the heart of your multi-room system – is hidden out of view – normally in a service cupboard. This is joined by a host of products known as source equipment. These include music and video servers, tuners and other music and video sources which you will be able to fully access from keypads in remotes in each room. From the service room, bespoke Opus cables travel through the walls in your home to transmit audio, video, two-way command signals and power to the keypads, amplifiers and speakers in each Opus equipped room.Can Opus be installed in every room?The extent of Opus’ inclusion in your home is down to you. A standard system will serve four rooms (generally referred to as zones) plus an additional four other rooms with more limited access to sources (these are known as sub-zones).
However it’s perfectly possible to specify a system capable of providing coverage to significantly larger properties. In fact Opus will concurrently serve up to 24 zones / 24 sub zones with hi-fi quality music and crisp video!
We will be able to answer any question about your own installation. iPods can integrate seamlessly as well as a wide array of third party controls, so that lighting, security systems and suchlike can also be controlled via Opus wall controls.
