The RGC11 is an IR remote controlled line level gain control module. It permits line level gain control of audio power amplifiers (instead of at speaker level), in multiroom installations, when highest sound quality is desired. It may also be used in any application where IR remote control of gain is desired, such as between the pre-out and main-in jacks of integrated amplifiers or receivers that were built without remote control. Gain control is accomplished by way of infrared commands originating from a Xantech RC68+ (or RC68) programmer. The RC68+ commands are "taught" to learning devices and passed to the RGC11 IR "IN" and "G" terminals via Xantech IR receivers, keypads and connecting blocks.
