Our take on the OnQ lyriQ™ Triple-source Audio Input Module

This On-Q input module lets you connect up to three audio sources from a central location to to your lyriQ multi-room audio system. The input module sends music signals to an enclosure-mounted audio distribution module, which in turn sends the signals to different rooms or areas of your house. The input module also transmits IR (infrared) control signals that allow remote operation of source components from lryiQ amplified keypads and universal remotes located in your listening rooms.

Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The On-Q Legrand lyriQ Triple-Source Input (AU7428) converts and sends line-level audio from up to three audio components to an audio distribution module via Category 5 cable. The unit also receives IR control codes from the Volume Control IR Targets and passes them to the emitter output ports for control of the source equipment.

lyriQ Audio System: The lyriQ Audio System utilizes Category 5 technology to distribute high quality audio to remote locations via Cat 5 cable to create a versatile whole-house audio system.

Connections: The AU7428 has the following connections:

  • Audio In: Three top-mounted gold-plated stereo RCA jacks
  • IR Emitters: Three front-mounted 3.5mm mini jack outputs*
  • IR Input: One front-mounted 3.5mm mini jack input
  • Audio Out: Two RJ-45 jacks labeled A and B (covered by a warning label)

* The included Instruction/Installation Sheet incorrectly indicates the unit has 2.5mm IR Emitter Jacks.

Controls: The unit has three rotary gain controls mounted on the front panel. The gain controls correspond with the three Audio In jacks. A slotted screwdriver is required to make adjustments to the gain controls.

Indicators: The AU7428 has one LED next to each of the RCA input jacks. These LEDs glow green when there is a presence of an audio signal on the input. There is also a single red LED that flashes whenever an IR signal is received from the IR input.
