Audio Authority 9878 Stainless Steel Wallplate Receiver - Component Video / Stereo & Digital Audio Receiver for Dual Cat-5 Distribution Systems

Use the Audio Authority 9878 Stainless Steel Wallplate Receiver with UniDrive, DuoDrive, SixDrive, AVAtrix AVM-562,
AVX-561-NR, AVX-661-NR and HLX Distribution Systems as well as stand-alone 9871 and 9880T drivers.

With the shallowest depth requirement of any Audio Authority A/V zone receiver, the 9878 wallplate is easy to install in just about any standard dual-gang electrical box.

Behind the timeless style and durability of stainless steel, 9878 wallplate receivers provide Y/Pb/Pr component video, digital audio and analog stereo audio jacks, plus an antenna pass-through jack (RF cable for antenna jack functionality must be added separately). An IR jack provides a convenient pathway for a third-party IR remote distribution network over the Cat-5 pathway.  IR receiver and emitter equipment not included.

If you would prefer to have an enclosed stand-alone receiver, please check out this item.  You may also want to consider the Decora®-style wallplate version.

Like most Audio Authority products, the model 9878 comes with a one year limited warranty from the manufacturer.
