Eaton. Touted as multiroom audio made easy, adding a second room to an A-BUS/ready system requires only a single CAT5 cable wired directly to the speaker location. The new design eliminates running speaker cable to the active speaker, helps retain audio quality, and removes unattractive volume controls from the wall, the maker says. For multi-room audio, users can choose from expansion hubs to suit individual requirements. Sold in pairs, the 61/2-inch A-BUS/direct speakers feature an integral volume control, and the speaker kit includes a new programmable remote control that can be mounted to a desk, wall, or magnetic metal surface. 801.652.3111.
