Mid-Level (MC/MCA) System
Professional-grade equipment, designed for the do-it-yourselfer
Our mid-level whole-house audio systems are feature-packed systems that are easy to install and incredibly affordable. No other systems near our price range deliver such rich-sounding audio throughout multiple zones in your home. And with our long history of amplifier and speaker design, you can trust the performance and quality for many years to come.
6 Central Source Inputs
Plug in up to six sources (music streamer, CD/DVD player, TV, etc.) at the central location. Each of these sources is available to every zone in your home, and can be selected simultaneously in any combination of zones. Newer devices like music streamers are typically controlled with their own app or by using the app for a music service (Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, Amazon Music, etc.). Our own HTD MC App includes a feature that makes toggling between control of your system and the most popular apps simple and convenient. Most older devices can be controlled with their own remote using the IR (infra-red) pass-through feature found on our keypads.
Easy to install
Just how easy is it to prepare your home for one of our mid-level systems? From a central location where you will install the equipment, run speaker cable to each speaker and run Cat-5/6 cable to every location where you want to install a keypad. That’s it. For future flexibility, or if you are not sure which brand of system you will install, run the speaker cable first to the keypad location and then on to the speakers.

Same great features, YOU choose how loud
Choose from an all-in-one 6-Source/6-Zone controller with a built-in 12-channel amplifier (MCA-66) with a maximum of 60 watts and 4 speakers per zone, OR add even more power by selecting a set with a separate controller (MC-66) and 12-channel amplifier.
Control with a Keypad
We offer two elegant keypad models that can be installed in any room for control of a particular zone and to initiate global controls such as party mode and all-off.
Control with a Smart Phone or Tablet
Use our free HTD MC 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.
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 central MC-66 or MCA-66 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 keypads and our app.
Option 2: Select a system with the MC-66 controller and choose model DMA-1240ADS as your multi-channel amplifier. Use our kit to connect the Echo Dot to the Voice Assistant input for that zone. This allows Alexa to take priority at any time over whatever source you’ve selected in the MC-66. With this configuration, you’ll also be able to use and hear Alexa even when the MC-66 is off or in stand-by. Volume for the Dot is controlled by voice and via the Alexa app.
