Power supply for Russound A-BUS multi-room audio systems
Our take on the Russound A-PS by Crutchfield's Tara W.
This power supply feeds up to four controller/amplifiers or distribution hubs in your Russound A-BUS multi-room music system. It connects to the system through the main or expansion hub. If you have a system with more than four in-wall controller/amplifiers or hubs, you will need more than one A-PS to provide enough power to your system.

What's in the Box:
- A-PS 24 Volt/2.5 amp DC power supply with attached 6' output cord
- 6' AC power cord
Well...it's a power supply and it did supply power. Was delivered very quickly. The price is unbelievably high but I couldn't find another reasonably priced power source so I purchased it...for my daughter.

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 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 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.

Why did you buy this?
This part MUST purchased separately when buying the Russound, A-H484, 4 Source, 4 Zone Surface Mount Hub. For some reason, Russound sells the A-H484 device and it's required A-PS power supply as separate items. [ Richard Sep 13, 2018 ]
This is what the sound installer said I needed to connect speakers to TV. [ Harlan Feb 08, 2018 ]
