The Hi-Fi 2 is Leviton’s all new distributed audio system. With double the zones, more than double the power, more sources, and an all new keypad with OLED display, the Hi-Fi 2 is reinvented for today’s demanding homeowners. The powerful yet compact Hi-Fi 2 plays music from devices you already own (or those you wish to purchase), and is so easy to operate that anyone can enjoy it. With Hi-Fi 2, you have the ability to listen to different sources at the same time at different volume levels throughout your home or set all zones to the same source and volume. Audio sources can now be located throughout the house using Remote Input Modules or locally inputted at the Hi-Fi 2 amplifier, including iPods, home theater systems, computers, and more. Hi-Fi by Leviton’s components are modular, giving flexibility for expansion as needs change. The base system provides 8 zones and 8 sources; however, it may be expanded to 16 zones and 8 sources. Hi-Fi by Leviton may be a stand-alone installation or may be integrated with an Leviton home control system for enhanced features including control from an iPhone or iPad. Variable line out amplification outputs are available for zones 1 and 8 (in addition to the built-in amps) as well as page/mute and system on jacks. Standard Cat-5 wiring is used to connect the digital amplifier with VSC’s and RIM’s. Standard speaker wire is used to connect speakers with the digital amplifier. The terminals on the Hi-Fi board are designed for 16 gauge wire and either 16 gauge or 14 gauge wire may be used. Leviton recommends either 6 ohm or 8 ohm speakers with Hi-Fi 2. Includes Hi-Fi Main Board Assembly in an Enclosure. Also comes with remote control, 4 Remote Input Modules (RIM), 8 OLED Volume-Source Controls (VSC), and a cable for an Leviton Omni Home Control System or Lumina Lighting Control System. Expandable to 16 zones using Expansion Amplifier Kit [sold separately].
