Niles' ZR-6 MultiZone Receiver independently distributes up to six audio sources to as many as six zones (expandable to 18) for high quality entertainment throughout any light commercial installation. In addition to a built-in AM/FM tuner that works right out of the box, the ZR-6's impressive Plug-and-Play capabilities allow businesses to integrate iPods with no additional programming. Adding to its ease-of-use, the ZR-6's dramatically simplifies the installation process for professional integrators thanks to an intuitive, built-in wizard that eliminates the need for computer programming.

For enhanced system functionality, ZR-6 users may choose from a variety of control solutions, including a color touchscreen and weather-resistant keypads, to ensure the perfect level of control for any location. The ZR-6's array of control options include the TS-PRO, a 3.5" color touchscreen display that provides elegant system control plus metadata information; the Solo®-6MD, a single-gang keypad with metadata display; the Solo-6IR, an elegant single-gang keypad; and the NumericTM-6P, an easy-to-use numeric keypad which works in conjunction with the Solo-6IR. The R-8L Learning Remote Control, included with the ZR-6 and also available as an additional accessory for outfitted zones, provides advanced control for all sources as well as a local TV and associated cable/satellite receiver and comes preloaded with commands for the ZR-6 as well as many popular brands.

Niles' ZR-4 MultiZone Receiver is a four-source, four-zone distributed audio system and is offered as an all-in-one package that includes everything needed to install the system. The kit includes a multizone audio receiver, four Solo®-4 IR weather-resistant keypads, a hand-held learning remote control, three infrared MicroFlashers® and rack mount ears with mounting hardware.
