Advanced (Lync) System
6 and 12 zone systems with inputs for 6 centrally located audio sources + 1 source from within each zone, and a full-featured intercom in an affordable package.
Performance rich, yet easy to install
Lync provides hi-end sound from professional-grade equipment designed for easy installation.
Just how easy is it to prepare your home for a Lync system?
- From a central location, run speaker cable to each speaker.
- From the same central location, run Cat 5 or better cable to every location where you want to install a LyncTouch keypad.
- An optional audio input panel can be installed within each zone (such as behind a TV). Run Cat cable from the input panel to the LyncTouch, or if no LyncTouch is available run Cat cable to the central location.

Local and Central Source Inputs
In addition to 6 centrally located sources, one source (TV, smart phone, Alexa Dot, gaming system, music streamer, etc.) can be connected within each zone using an audio input panel. All sources are available to every zone in your home. With our app (it's free!), you can also block sources from being available to specific zones.
Enough power for a houseful of speakers, expandable as needed
Pre-packaged Lync systems include enough power for up to 4 speakers per zone. But if that’s not enough, both a variable and fixed output is provided for every zone so that you can easily add amplification for as many speakers as you need. Volume for these additional speakers is controlled as part of the main zone or independently through the use of rotary or slide-type volume controls.
Control with a Smart Phone or Tablet
Use our free HTD Lync App installed on an iOS or Android device to control any and all zones. The app can be configured on a per-user basis to restrict zones and sources and to allow for customization of features such as Zone Groups and Presets. Presets allow you to create and save audio “scenes” that can be launched from a single press of a button.
Control with a LyncTouch
LyncTouch keypads can be installed in any room for control of a particular zone or to initiate global controls such as party mode and all-off.
A full-featured intercom is built-in. Use the LyncTouch keypads to not only control a zone, but also to communicate on a global and zone-to-zone basis. Sound quality is outstanding since the audio you hear comes through the same speakers used for music, TV, and other audio sources.
Planning to use Alexa?
Option 1: Install an Alexa device called the Echo Dot in the ceiling of a room and connect it to a source input on the Lync central controller using one of our Voice Assistant Mounting Kits. When that source is selected in the zone, you can communicate with Alexa and hear her answers and music streaming. Ask Alexa to stream from Prime Music, Pandora, Spotify, Apple Music, and more. Volume is controlled by the Lync system.
Option 2: Select model DMA-1240ADS as your multi-channel amplifier and use our kit to connect the Echo Dot to the Voice Assistant input for that zone. This unique input allows Alexa to take priority at any time over whatever source you’ve selected in the Lync system. With this configuration, you’ll also be able to use and hear Alexa even when the Lync system is off or in stand-by. Volume is controlled by voice and via the Alexa app.
