Leviton Decora Strauss Transformer-Free Volume Control, Impedance Matching is a transformer-free impedance matching.
Leviton’s Decora Strauss Transformer- Free Impedance Matching Volume Controls, combined with premium installed speakers, can be used to design a nocompromise installed multi-room entertainment system that delivers the best reproduction possible from today’s ultra-wide bandwidth digital sources.
- The Impedance Matching Volume Control provides for multi-room distribution without the necessity of using external impedance matching devices.
- Adjustable Impedance settings enable configuring systems from two-six controls.
In multi-room distributed audio systems, the source of undesirable speaker coloration (usually perceived as a "muffled" sound) is often the volume control itself, because the audio transformers (AKA: autoformers) used in conventional controls can actually filter the bass and treble frequencies. The Decora Strauss Transformer-Free Volume Controls use audio-grade Cermetile resistors to change volume levels while leaving the audio signal unaffected, resulting in ruler-flat frequency response across the entire audible frequency range. Moreover, the Decora Strauss Transformer-Free Volume Controls eliminate the problem of "saturation" associated with conventional volume controls with their ability to instantaneously handle the full peak output power of any consumer-grade amplifier on the market today.
- Decora slide control with precision 12-positon switch (including full OFF position)
- Transformer-Free attenuation technology ensures linear frequency response, signal integrity and high power handling ability
