C-Series Multizone Controller Amplifier MCA-C3

The MCA-C3 Multi-zone Controller Amplifier provides six zones of distributed stereo audio from any of six sources. The addition of up to five additional controllers allow for scalability to 36 zones. A variety of input options have been engineered into the MCA-C3 controller. A built-in internal AM/FM tuner with RDS (Radio Data System) support is optional as source one. An RNET® link using CAT-5e allows for metadata transmission and control of Russound RNET Smart Source components. (BGK-1, ST1, VM-1, BSK-1) C-Series products are Ethernet enabled devices allowing for communication via RIO (Russound I/O). RIO allows C-Series products to integrate and communicate bi-directionally through Ethernet protocol. Using RIO protocol and Ethernet connectivity through the LAN, the My Russound App controls C-Series products and other Russound Ethernet connected products, like our DMS3.1 Digital Media Streamer.

The MCA-C3 controller features analog amplifiers providing 20 watts of power per channel to zones one through six. Two zones are equipped with fixed or variable line-level outputs for outboard amplification or subzone use. The MCA-C3 has a front USB port for programming ease and a rear RS-232 port for integration with home automation systems.

Custom audio settings, Party Mode, Do Not Disturb, source and zone linking, and All On/Off participation are standard features. Incorporated in the MCA-C3 is a system clock with alarms and sleep timers, Home Theater trigger, routed and common IR outputs, and six 12VDC trigger outputs. Source six can serve as a paging input for connection to a third party paging or phone system.

With MDK-C5, MDK-C6, SLK, SLK-1 Keypads or TS3 touchscreens, the MCA-C5 communicates from its built-in tuner and other Russound Smart sources vital information such as preset name, AM/FM station frequency, satellite radio station ID, artist, and song title.

Configuration of the MCA-C5 Multi-zone Controller Amplifier requires a PC loaded with Russound SCS-C5 Configuration Software. This free software is available for download at our online Support Center.
