AVAtrix with Zone Amplifier AVAtrix with a Zone Amplifier
With the 1173BK set to Tracking Mode, the AVAtrix and 1173BK provide switching and volume control for the zone amp, which feeds speakers in the listening zone. The user controls volume and source selection via the AVAtrix IR routing system or an RS-232 enabled control system.

With the 1173BK set to tracking mode, the AVAtrix and 1173BK provide switching and volume control. The user controls volume and source selection via the AVAtrix IR routing system or an RS-232 enabled control system. Analog audio outputs for each AVR follow video content in the zone.

AVAtrix with Zone Amplifier AVAtrix with a "Smart" Distributed Audio System
When the 1173BK is set to Source Mode, it repeats the original source content out to a distributed audio system that has its own onboard switching and volume control. This prevents the use of signal-degading Y-adapters, and provides the audio both to the distant Cat 5 receiver and the local distributed audio system.

With the 1173BK set to tracking mode, the AVAtrix and 1173BK provide switching and IR commands for the receiver. The user controls the system with a third-party controller in the listening zone, and the volume control IR commands are passed througth the AVAtrix IR routing system and out the 1173BK, to the A/V receiver.
