Essentia E6G

Nuvo Essentia

Six Sources & Six Listening Zones

Where as the Nuvo Simplese gives you two sources delivered to up to four different listening zones, the Essentia delivers the startlingly clear sound from up to six different sources, and to six different listening zones through out your home. Best of all it is expandable and surprisingly affordable. For those of you that are energy conscious the Essentia is the first whole home audio system to earn the Energy Star logo. It only consumes less than 1 watt of power while in the standby mode.

The designer buttons provide a smooth, clean finish with a polycarbonate surface that makes the Essentia control pad water-resistant.

What has been updated with the new Essentia?

1) It uses  the same NuVoNet interface as the redesigned Grand Concerto to provide full data feedback from any NuVo source unit.

2) Essentia now uses the Philips Class D digital audio amplification to deliver clear, precise sound throughout your home, while at the same time adds energy efficiency while running. It is the first distributed audio system to earn the Energy Star Logo.

3) Is there a home automation system in your future? Did you know that Essentia has an RS-232 bidirectional control interface  which allows it to be controlled from most home automation systems?

NuVo systems come complete with all necessary components for installation, including keypads. All that’s needed are speakers, wire, and audio source equipment, and you can enjoy the power of Essentia in no time.
