IncognitoIncognito Multi-Roommulti-roomINTRODUCTIONThe Incognito multi-room system is a whole-house entertainmentsystem capable of distributing audio and video* throughout a home.The system consists of KP10 keypads with built-in amplifiersconnected to a central AH10 audio hub unit by Cat-5/5e cable.Source components (CD players, DVD players etc) from almost anymanufacturer can be used and are connected to the AH10 hub unitby standard stereo RCA /phono leads. Sources connected to thecentral hub are distributed to the remote rooms (throughout theguide referred to as main and sub-zones), so that different roomsmay listen to different things at the same time.The KP10 keypads are mounted in-the-wall in standard back-boxesand connected to in-wall, in-ceiling or conventional speakers withstandard speaker cable. The keypads do not require local power andare powered via the cable from the hub.The AH10 hub and KP10 keypad utilize A-BUS TM technology, and canbe switched between Incognito A-BUS or standard A-BUS mode(switches located on the underside of the AH10 and rear of KP10respectively). A-BUS is a standard which provides compatibilitybetween systems from various manufacturers. When using IncognitoA-BUS mode and our own keypads, some extra features are possiblesuch as changing sources from the keypad itself and the fitment oflocal input modules. When used with other A-BUS keypads it shouldbe set to standard A-BUS mode or they will not work.If video distribution is required a VH10 video switcher can be addedwhich sends video over RG6 / CT100 co-axial cable to each roomrequired. Again, different rooms can watch different things at thesame time.One AH10 hub supports four main-zones and four sub-zones (eightrooms in total). Each sub-zone output is tied to a main zone outputand always receives the same source as its main zone. Sub-zonesare used for instances such as en-suite bathrooms (the bedroombeing a main zone) where it is desired to to have an area thatautomatically follows the same source as another but can beindependently turned on and off, has individual bass and treble etc.Up to four AH10 (and VH10 where fitted) can be chained for asystem maximum of 16 main zones plus 16 sub-zones.Enjoy !Matthew BrambleTechnical Director* requires VH10 video switcherIncognito is a trademark of Cambridge Audio Ltd.

FAQs1. What entertainment equipment can I connect ?6. What advice can you give for keypad location ?The Incognito system is compatible with almost any type of hi-fior video separate that uses 3440kHz or 5458kHz IR system(nearly all).When locating a keypad you should avoid putting in direct sunlightor in close proximity to plasma screens. Care should also be takenlocating it near to devices that produce electrical noise such asmechanical dimmers. See planning section on page 17.2. What is the difference between a main zone and a sub-zone ?A sub-zone can only listen to the same audio source as is beinglistened to in the main zone. The sub-zone has independent power,volume and tone controls from the main zone.3. How many rooms can a system serve ?Each AH10 supports four main and four sub-zones. Four AH10s canbe chained together supporting up to a maximum of 16 main zonesand 16 sub-zones. If a larger system is required it is possible to havetwo or more separate systems running independently givingunlimited expandability.4. Do I have to use Incognito speakers ?No, but it is highly recommended as the Incognito speakers areoptimised and impedance matched to the keypad amplifiers.5. How many remote controls can the system have ?There is no limit to the amount of remotes you can have. If requiredyou can have a remote in each room.22 Incognito multi-room7. Is there a maximum cable run from AH10 to each KP10 ?Yes, the maximum cable run is 30 metres / 100 feet.
