AV Link 2×4 Matrix Selector Switch : Perfect accessory

Despite previous comments on the difficulty with the smallness of the terminals, i found it quite easy to set up with the aid of a small screwdriver, a pair of reading specs and a good light.

I bought this unit two years argo and had no problems with it i’ve got ceiling speakers all over the house and play my sonos conect through it i also see people having problems wiring this up i used the speaker pins just cut them down a bit you can connect a descent size wire into them like i have hope this helps.

AV Link 2×4 Matrix Selector Switch with Volume Controls for Speaker

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Enables four pairs of speakers to be connected to two separate amplifiers
  • Heavy-duty push-buttons
  • Individual volume controls with black aluminium finish
  • Designed for 4-16 ohms speakers

Its early day yet but i honestly cant fault this audio matrix switch. I was a bit fearful about buying it because it was half the price of others. I have now got total control over 4 different zones (audio) i have 2 sky boxes, 1 dvd player, and 1 cd player connected to my amp and the amp is connected to the matrix box and can have different sounds coming thru my speakers. I have total control over the volume to each set of speakers. The only con and its not really a con is the volume can only go up or down in steps,if you want to control the volume on different speakers the i can highly recommend this one.

Perfect, did exactly what the client required.

Looks ideal and seems to work exactly as i wanted it to but only just connected it so early days.

AV Link 2×4 Matrix Selector Switch with Volume Controls for Speaker : [[asin:b004d8rvqg 4 pairs of 35w ceiling speakers with amplifier, speakers & 100m cable]a good unit spoilt by too small terminals ,have you watched a telephone engineer working on a junction box in thestreet, this is the same nightmare you have wiring to the terminals on this otherwise well built good looking speakerwswitch box,if you have monster cable you will never use them with this gadget. These terminals are really suitableonly for bell wire,even one cm strand loose wire will shorten out your speakers,i managed to complete the jobwith amazon speaker cable ,stripping the ends of the cables very short, even then i got one or two rogue strandsthat you must deal with, the next size up in terminals would have given the unit full five stars and nil criticism.

This does a very good job of handling 4 pairs of speakers and 2 inputs, even with little stickers for the on/off button for each channel which can be used to show what room it relates to. Turning on the other speaker channels doesn’t noticeably reduce the volumen of exisiting ones. However one important thing to note is that this is note a powered unit and will not really amplify the input.

  1. This review is from : AV Link 2×4 Matrix Selector Switch with Volume Controls for Speaker

    For multi-room sound distribution this is ideal, especially if different speaker pairs require different volume settings to help maintain the same volume in several rooms. No separate power supply which means no unnecessary little function lamps which, in turn, means no extra unwanted costs (if you want bling you’d have to pay up to three times more and import from the us). The cable connects are a bit tiny and fiddly but once everything’s hooked up it’s secure, discreet and functional. And once set to the desired levels, the master volume control on your source output amp(s) keeps everything consistently balanced. Delivered promptly, well packed and includes a comprehensive range of pre-printed zone labels (if required) so you need never forget which volume control relates to which room / location.
