Custom-tailored advice — before and after you buy
Installing this system requires you to run wires in your walls, unless your home is already wired with CAT-5 and speaker cables. Our Audio/Video Designers can help you put together the ideal system — from planning the wire run to picking out speakers. Plus, our tech support specialists can help you through your installation step-by-step.

In-wall keypads provide power and control in each room
Each keypad has a built-in stereo amplifier that powers the connected speakers in that room and offers easy-to-use controls for muting or adjusting the volume of your music. There's even a local source input outlet included that lets you plug in audio devices such as a portable music player for in-room listening on local speakers.

The keypads also feature a built-in IR (infrared) sensor, so you can use the included wireless remote to control playback from across the room. The remote allows you to turn the entire system on or off with the press of a button, and can be programmed to operate your audio source component. Extra remotes are available for additional listening rooms.

Expansion possibilities
This system includes four amplified keypads that can drive stereo speakers in four different rooms. By adding additional keypads and optional hardware, you can distribute music in up to a total of 16 different areas of your home.

Standard "single-gang" junction boxes needed for installation of keypads and local source input outlets. On-Q in-wall wiring enclosure recommended for mounting distribution module.

Hands-on research

Product Research


Product Overview: The On-Q AU7400-WH lyriQ Single Source, 4-Zone kit includes the components necessary to establish a Cat 5-based whole house audio system. With the kit, you can enjoy the main music source in four rooms, or choose to listen to a local source in only one room. The system passes infrared remote control signals for easy sound management.

Components: The AU7400 system includes the following components:

  • F7398 Single Source Input: This Single Source Input accepts a line-level signal from a music source, such as a CD player, and sends it to the Distribution Module via Cat 5 cable, to be distributed to each individual room's keypad.
  • AU7396 Distribution Module: The Distribution Module allows you to send audio to up to 4 different zones within your house via Cat 5 cable. For additional zones, additional distribution hubs can be daisy-chained through the cascade outputs. The module can be mounted into a standard On-Q enclosure using the supplied metal bracket. The module is powered by the supplied PW1060 24-volt power supply.
  • F7417 Local Source Input: In one room, you can plug in an auxiliary source device, and listen to it through the speakers in that room. The local source signal has priority over the main source connected to the whole house system. Once the local source becomes inactive or unplugged, the main source will be heard in the zone within 30 seconds. The Local Source input fits into a single gang wall box, and is trimmed out with one of the supplied Decora wall plates.
  • AU7394 Keypad: The Keypad Volume Controls have two built-in 7 watt class D amplifiers to provide a rich level of clean sound. Each of the four keypads have push buttons for volume control, audio source selection, and muting. It can also accept IR signals from the remote and transmit them through the system to the source device. Each one of the Keypad Volume Controls fits into a single gang wall box, and is trimmed out with one of the supplied Decora wall plates.
  • F7427 Remote Control: The F7427 IR Universal Remote Control (URC) allows you to interact with your Cat 5 Audio system from any room where a Keypad Volume Control or Main Source Input is located. It can be programmed to control up to seven different devices, and has a learning function.
  • F7425 Emitter: The dual IR emitter helps control the audio equipment connected to your whole house audio system. It plugs directly into the Single Source Input module via it's 9' cable.
  • PW1060 Power Supply: The PW1060 power supply converts AC power to 24 volts DC to power the Distribution Module and all connected peripherals of the Cat 5 audio system.
