The NERO MAX12 is a highly efficient Class D multi-channel audio distribution system that powers up to six zones with up to six different sources for well-rounded and easy to manage residential and commercial audio systems. This multi-functional and highly compatible and expandable amplifier is engineered with cutting-edge features including App Control for iOS and Android devices. The free App duplicates the optional control keypads and allows you to select zones, adjust volume, treble and bass, or turn all zones on or off directly through a smartphone or tablet. Designed with A/V integrators and homeowners who want the most flexibility, the NERO MAX12 includes numerous input sources including four stereo line-level RCA, one 3.5mm aux, and one optical/3.5mm combo analog source input. In addition, RS232 and ethernet ports allow transferring and receiving the serial data between home automation systems. The NERO MAX12 features six zones of reliable amplification at 40W per zone at 8ohms or 80W x 2 @ 4 ohms and includes stereo/bridge mono output for combining zones (120W @ 8 ohms).
Expanding Beyond Six Zones
The NERO MAX12 includes unbalanced line level pre-amp outputs that can be used to connect an additional amplifier for Zones 1-3, a powered subwoofer, or dedicated subwoofer amplifier with a passive in-wall sub. The system can be expanded by adding 1 to 2 more multi-channel amplifier base control units to expand to up to 12 or 18 zones with a maximum of six sources. An expansion cable connects to the additional units and there is a “master/minion” switch on each unit where you determine which component is the master featuring the six-source inputs. The NERO Max12 can be controlled via, R232, Wi-Fi/App, or optional IR remote/control keypads.
