The Master Control Unit is the heart of the Opus system. The MCU500 is incredibly easy to install, service and upgrade. Capable of distributing up to five audio inputs in addition to the in-built tuner and four main zones and four sub-zones simultaneously, the MCU500 will fill any home with a rich detailed sound.
A display on the front panel of the MCU500 displays radio station, frequency etc text from the built-in tuner, and enables easy tuning of the 30 station presets.
If required, six audio-loop outputs are available to connect the audio sources to existing hi-fi or AV equipment. For those with larger installation needs, an MCU link facility allows up to six MCU500s to be connected together giving a maximum distribution capability of 24 main zones and 24 sub-zones.
