Audio Authority 1180R Enclosed Receiver

Audio Authority 1180R Enclosed Receiver - Component Video / Digital Audio Receiver for Single Cat-5 Distribution Systems

Use the Audio Authority 1180R Enclosed Receiver with 1180T Enclosed Transmitter and 1180TD Decora Wallplate Transmitters or combine with the 1110 Adapter for single cable connections to dual-cable distribution systems such as AVAtrix, SixDrive and DuoDrive. 

With its fully-enclosed design, sturdy metal case and small form factor, this receiver will fit just about anywhere.  The 1180R requires only one Cat 5 style twisted-pair cable.

The 1180R is also available as a part of a complete distribution system as  SCP-11.  If you would prefer to have the same receiver built into a wallplate, please check out the 1180RD receiver.

Like most Audio Authority products, the 1180R comes with a one year limited warranty from the manufacturer.
