More details on the Russound XTS5.5
Wall-Mounted Touchscreen: The Russound XTS5.5 Touchscreen is a stylish in-wall touchscreen that runs an embedded version of the popular MyRussound App. By placing the powerful MyRussound app in a permanent location on a wall, the XTS gives you full and easy control of your Russound XStream gear, such as the XSource, XZone4, and XZone70V or MCA-Series/C-Series systems such as the MCA-66, MCA-88, and MCA-88X (all sold separately), eliminating the need to use your smartphone or tablet to simply change the volume or change your music selection. It can control any zone within your compatible Russound system.
Powerful Quad-Core Processor: The Russound XTS5.5 Touchscreen utilizes a powerful quad-core processor for optimum performance.
5.5" Capacitive Touchscreen: The XTS5.5 uses a high-performance 5.5" IPS TFT High Definition display with a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080. The XTS5.5 display also features projected capacitive technology, the latest touch technology used in smartphones and tablets, enhancing the touchscreen with a quicker response time, high durability, and excellent optical performance. The capacitive touchscreen provides simple and fast control, as well as metadata feedback from compatible sources - including artist name, song titles, album titles, & album art.
Note: The XTS5.5 provides several options for turning off the display after you have stopped using it. The options range from no timeout (display is always active) to up to 10 minutes. There is also an option called "Follow Zone Power" to turn off the display immediately whenever the zone being controlled is turned off.
Clean Screen Mode: The Russound touchscreen features a built-in cleaning mode that lets you clean the screen while its still active. Normally, this would result in unwanted button presses, but with the Clean Screen setting, all button presses will be ignored until you exit Clean Screen mode.
Controls: From the XTS5.5 Touchscreen, you can select between Russound XStream compatible streaming music sources (including Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM, TuneIn, vTuner, & DLNA). You can also create, edit or delete any favorites. In addition, the wall-mounted touchscreen offers playback and search functions for your music sources, as well as song/artist information and album art.
Network Connectivity: The XTS5.5 Touchscreen features an Ethernet (RJ-45) jack and connects to your network router rather than your Russound system. The XTS5.5 uses a dynamic DHCP network address. If a more permanent IP address is required, use a DHCP reservation for the XTS in your router configuration.
Power Requirements: Power over Ethernet (PoE) allows the XTS5.5 to receive power over the same Ethernet connection used for communication, requiring only one CAT-5/6 cable run. In order to take advantage of PoE, the XTS must be connected to an 802.3af router or switch located on the same network.
Mounting Options: The Russound XTS5.5 Touchscreen features an elegant, low-profile design that installs easily in a single-gang electrical box or P-Ring. It extends from the wall only 0.55" when installed.
Note: The typical recommended mounting height for a wall-mounted touchscreen is for the center of the electrical box/p-ring to be at 59" from the floor height. This may be adjusted for user preference, but the 59" height is recommended to accommodate most users.
Firmware Updates: The XTS5.5 makes it easy to keep the touchscreen interface up-to-date with the latest version of the MyRussound app by performing a simple over-the-network update from the settings menu.
