Parasound and AV Distributors unveil the ZoneMaster 4 DAX The first four-zone DAC with crossovers for the CI industry

parasound-general-logoParasound and their EMEA partners AV DISTRIBUTORS BV are proud to introduce the new ZoneMaster 4 DAX – the first four-zone DAC with crossovers for the custom installation industry.

The 4 DAX was designed for the many integrators who create multi-zone systems based around the Sonos Connect®, BlueSound Node® or Google Chromecast™ Audio, and are looking to upgrade their clients’ digital sound quality, adding connectivity for subwoofers, stereo or mono speakers, and system control options.

Previously, installers would have needed four separate DACs and four crossovers, in four separate chassis taking up precious rack space and making integration overly complicated. The 4 DAX’s analog audio outputs include full-range stereo, high-pass stereo, full-range mono, high-pass mono and low-pass mono/subwoofer for each of the four zones. Each zone has optical and coax inputs, level adjustments for left and right channels and 12V outputs for turning on additional equipment such as amplifiers and cooling equipment. Our ZoneMaster line of multi-zone amplifiers has independent trigger outputs for each zone making them perfect companions to the 4 DAX.

The Parasound ZoneMaster 4 DAX is a single chassis unit that achieves superior DAC performance by using four premium 192kHz ESS Sabre DACs, four Parasound-designed analog crossovers with multiple configuration options, and four 12V outputs, each triggered when analog audio is present in that zone.

The Parasound Zonemaster 4 DAX is now in stock. MSRP is 999 euro excluding sales tax.
