More details on the Russound SLK-1

Stacey B.

Product Research


Overview: The Russound SLK-1 single-gang, in-wall keypad is designed for basic individual zone control for any zone on a Russound MCA Series controller/amplifier (sold separately). The keypad features soft-touch buttons for easy access to Volume, Power, Source selection, a Favorites setting, as well as basic transport controls - Play/Pause, Previous and Next. The SLK-1 also features an IR receiver for control of zone sources and for IR repeating. A convenient IR LED provides visual confirmation of IR signals received.

Compatibility: The SLK-1 is designed to work specifically with Russound MCA series controller/amplifiers including the MCA-66, MCA-88, and the MCA-88X.

Connection: Connection to the controller/amplifier is done through a rear-panel RJ-45 port using standard CAT-5 cable (sold separately) terminated in the T568A wiring standard. Cable runs for zone keypads should not exceed 300' maximum. The SLK-1 requires 12VDC/180mA of power, which it receives from the controller/amplifier through the connected CAT-5 cable.

Installation: The SLK-1 is designed to be mounted in a standard single-gang electrical box (sold separately). Electrical boxes must be at least 3" deep to accommodate the keypad as well as the CAT-5 cable connector.

Note: A decorative wall-plate is NOT included and must be purchased separately.

This controller does not have Bluetooth in it but Bluetooth can be one of the input sources in the compatible amp
