Russound CB-PS Connecting Block Power Supply
Our take on the Russound 846C by Crutchfield's Kemp Honeycutt
The Russound Model 846C Power Supply connects to the status input on the A-CB4iR A-BUS interface module and allows you to take advantage of the System Status feature. Here's how it works: you plug the 846C into a switched AC receptacle, usually on the back of the audio receiver being used. When the audio receiver is turned on, it sends current through the power supply, which tells the green LEDs on the interface module and on the A-BUS volume controls to illuminate, letting you know your system is turned on, even if you're in another room.Details:
- 110V only; 12 Volt DC 200 mA, regulated
- dimensions: 2" wide x 2-3/4" high x 1-5/8" deep
Russound 846C Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The 846-C is a12V power supply that provides "status" information to the hub. It plugs into a switched AC output on the back of your system's audio receiver, and sends a signal to the Hub whenever the source is powered up.
- Input: 117VAC, 60Hz, 7W
- Output: 12VDC, 300mA Regulated
- Tip: Positive
A-BUS System Overview: Instead of multi-channel amplifiers, speaker selector boxes, autoformers, impedance-matching equipment and long runs of expensive speaker wire, A-BUS audio distribution includes amplified in-wall volume controls, and wiring installation time is significantly reduced as only a single 8-connector CAT-5 wire (not included) is run to each location. Simply add A-BUS to your existing stereo/home theater system with an A-BUS Hub and the A-BUS Amplified Controls will provide independent volume and source control to each room where an A-BUS module is installed. Each control contains a stereo amplifier rated to deliver 7.5 watts RMS per channel; the AC current to power each amplifier is delivered via the CAT-5 cable. The system also includes IR remote sensing and retransmission to let you control your components from any of the volume control locations, and included is a remote that controls the volume control itself and can be used to teach the Russound codes to IR learning remotes.
