You can think of the Audio Authority 1154B as the evolution of the legendary 1154A, bringing enhanced performance and new features in an elegant satin finished all-metal case design.

The front panel features touch-sensitive controls, including discrete buttons for each input. The 1154B retains Audio Authority's excellent AutoSelectâ„¢ feature, for the ultimate in source switching convenience, but also adds discrete IR remote control for even greater flexibility and control. Discrete input commands make it easy to control the 1154B with universal remote control macros.

The sleek metal casing encloses all-new electronics, featuring even higher video bandwidth, so it can easily handle all HDTV resolutions from 480i to 1080p without signal degradation. All inputs are AC coupled to prevent DC offset problems that can occur with certain cable and satellite boxes.

Put Audio Authority's thirty-plus years of AV design and manufacturing experience to work in your home theater with the high-performance, high-class 1154B!

With it's streamlined jack arrangement for the rear panel, the 1154B switches component video, analog stereo audio, and your choice of coaxial or optical TOSLink digital audio for up to four sources. The 1154B also seamlessly converts between coaxial and optical digital audio, providing simultaneous outputs for both formats, solving any number of digital audio compatibility problems.

Like most Audio Authority products, the 1154B comes with a one year limited warranty from the manufacturer.
