Asano is a networked multiroom audio system that allows you to freely locate your sources and amplifiers anywhere in the house. It is ideal for homes of all sizes, as well as restaurants, sports bars and hotels. Asano transports uncompressed crystal clear audio from any source to any room over a dedicated Ethernet network. By doing so, the system offers an unseen flexibility and expandability. With Asano, a virtually unlimited number of sources can be distributed to up to 60 rooms and even more. Bang & Olufsen ICEpower Class D amplifiers power the Asano system with unequalled performance and efficiency. Now, you can enjoy your music the way it was intended to be. With the internal advanced DSP, you can fine-tune your sound in every room just the way you want it, creating the ultimate listening experience. Asano perfectly integrates in KNX systems, without any interface, creating a new level of simplicity, flexibility and ease of installation.

Asano A3 is a networked 3-zone stereo output module that allows you to connect up to 3 zones (1 digital S/PDIf and 2 analogue) of third party amplifiers or active speakers with the Asano system. The two analogue zones are connected with rJ45, which can be converted to rCA connectors using the optional A3 Audio Splitter. Every zone output has a separate trigger output to switch on and off the external amplifier or active speaker. With A3, you can also connect two local sources (1 digital S/PDIf and 1 analogue). A source connected to one of the inputs, immediately becomes a source for all the other zones of the Asano system. Both inputs have signal sensing to automatically switch on a zone or to trigger KNX events. Advanced DSP processing provides 5-band equalization with bass and treble control and the selection of up to 8 different EQ-presets for every zone or room. A3 is completely configured and controlled with KNX. there is no need for any network configuration. Simply connect the module to KNX and a standard Ethernet switch.

Asano N1 is a network node to connect any source to the Asano system. One single source can be connected to the analogue or digital (optical or coaxial) input. With USB, you can connect Asano N1 to a PC. By doing so, the PC becomes a source for the audio system and has a full digital path all the way up to the amplifier. Two rotary dials configure the source number, easy and simple. Power for the module can be supplied with a separate power supply or by Power over Ethernet (PoE).

Asano P1 is a single zone networked stereo amplifier with 2 inputs for analogue sources. A source connected to one of the inputs, immediately becomes a source for all the other zones of the Asano system. All inputs have signal sensing to automatically switch on a zone or to trigger KNX events. To deliver superior audio performance, Asano P1 is powered with 2x125W Bang & Olufsen ICEpower amplification. Furthermore, Asano P1 offers the possibility to connect an active subwoofer. Advanced DSP processing provides 5-band equalization with bass and treble control and the selection of up to 8 different EQ-presets. Asano P1 can also be configured to be used as 2 completely independent mono zones for smaller areas as a dressing room or a bathroom. P1 is completely configured and controlled with KNX. there is no need for any network configuration. Simply connect the amplifier to KNX and a standard Ethernet switch.

Asano P4 is a networked 4-zone stereo amplifier with 4 inputs for analogue sources. A source connected to one of the inputs, immediately becomes a source for all the other zones of the Asano system. All inputs have signal sensing to automatically switch on a zone or to trigger KNX events. To deliver superior audio performance, all zone outputs are powered with 2x125W Bang & Olufsen ICEpower amplification. Just in case that isn’t enough, two zones can be bridged to produce astonishing 2x450W audiophile amplification. Advanced DSP processing provides 5-band equalization with bass and treble control and the selection of up to 8 different EQ-presets for every zone or room. P4 is completely configured and controlled with KNX. there is no need for any network configuration. Simply connect the amplifier to KNX and a standard Ethernet switch.

B.link is a DIN rail module that integrates Infrared and Serial RS232 IP-modules with KNX. With B.link it becomes possible to control any IR or Serial RS232 device with KNX. CD players, tuners or digital set top boxes, all become part of the Asano system. B.link can be combined with up to 16 B.link flex modules that communicate over IP and can be placed anywhere in the house. To each B.link flex, you are able connect up to 3 IR transmitters using a splitter or a single Serial RS232 cable. Power for the B.link flex is provided over Ethernet. As a bonus, up to 3 surround receivers can be integrated directly over IP. With the B.link, source selection and volume control with full feedback can be controlled with KNX commands. B.link supports receivers from Pioneer, Marantz, Integra and Denon. B.link comes with a configuration tool that allows you to program macros that include sending out KNX commands in combination with IR and serial commands so that you can create powerful welcome and good-bye scenarios. B.link has two LAN ports with integrated switch for daisy chaining.

BO.sensor integrates Bang & Olufsen infrared remote controls with KNX systems and allows controlling KNX lights, screens and scenes with the Beo 4 and Beo 6 remotes. BO.sensor supports all AV controls like tV, rADIO and DVD, allowing you to control the complete Asano system. In combination with B.link, powerful macros can be started by a single button press. the BO.sensor module sits behind the original Bang & Olufsen infrared sensor powering it directly from the KNX bus without any additional power supply.
