The revolutionary new Opus 300 (octopus) Multi-Room Entertainment System by Opus Technologies delivers new standards to multi-room audio at a more affordable price than ever before. Capable of accessing any of 6 available audio sources (CD player, tuner etc.), the MCU300 then distributes any source to any or all of 4 distinct main zones around the house simultaneously, using only one run of Cat5 UTP or Cat6 cable per zone. Furthermore, for every main zone, the MCU300 supports an additional sub-zone which is ideal for en-suite bathrooms, conservatories etc.

Loop outputs for all 6 audio sources are provided, enabling integration with an existing hi-fi, or home theatre system. For larger installations requiring more than 4 main zones and 4 sub-zones, a hub-link facility is provided enabling up to 4 MCU300's to be "chained" together providing for up to 32 zones (16 main zones and 16 sub-zones).

  • Multi source audio distribution (listen to different sources in different rooms at the same time)
  • 6 source inputs, 8 zones per MCU300
  • Chainable to serve as many as 32 rooms
  • Extremely simple installation, with just a single run of Cat5 or Cat6 cable per zone
  • Distribution to a maximum of 4 main zones
  • Additional facility of 4 sub-zones
  • Loop outputs for all 6 audio sources
  • External input for CCTV or alternate source
  • 6 Routed Emitter outputs for dedicated infra-red control of source equipment
  • An "All Commands" emitter output for dedicated control of CCTV system etc.
  • Hub-link facility for "chaining" up to 4 MCU's together (possible 16 main zones + 16 sub-zones).
