Parasound to Debut Four-Zone DAC and Crossover at CEDIA

4dax_black_angle_72-0816Parasound will introduce the ZoneMaster 4 DAX, a four-zone DAC with crossovers for the custom installation industry. Parasound says the 4 DAX was designed in response to custom installers who create multi-zone systems based around the Sonos Connect, Heos Link, BlueSound Node or Google Chromecast Audio, and are looking to upgrade their clients’ digital sound quality, with connectivity for subwoofers, stereo or mono speakers, and system control options.

The Parasound ZoneMaster 4 DAX is a single chassis unit that uses four 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 4 DAX’s analog audio outputs include 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.

The Parasound ZoneMaster 4 DAX will list for $995 and here are the specs.
