One of the features that sets Lync apart from other whole-house audio systems, is the ability to easily connect audio sources not only at the central location, but also at convenient connection points spread throughout the home.
You can add analog, digital, or wireless bluetooth input locations throughout your home. The sources you connect to any of these input panels are then available to all zones in your home.
The Analog Input Panel (AIP), Digital Input Panel (DIP), and Bluetooth Input Panel (BIP) can be connected directly to the central Lync controller or to the back of a LyncTouch using standard Cat 5 (or higher) cable.
The AIP, DIP, and BIP get their power over the same Cat cable that connects the device into the Lync system.
Only one AIP, DIP, or BIP can be connected to each zone.
Consider using our less expensive Standard Input Panel (SIP) instead of the AIP when an analog source will be connected to a LyncTouch using a Cat cable run of less than 30 feet. The SIP cannot be connected directly to a central Lync 6 or Lync 12 controller, whereas the AIP can.
