Leviton Hi-Fi 2 4 Zones, 4 Sources Amplifier
Build A 4-Zone Audio Distribution System
You can build out a four-zone audio distribution system by starting with the Leviton Hi-Fi 2 4-Zone, 4-Source Amplifier Only as your foundation. This 4-zone model is more compact than its related 8-zone model (sold separately), allowing you to fit the amplifier in a smaller area. You will also save money by investing only in the number of zones you need.
- 4 source, 4 zone distribution hub with all four zones amplified
- Cool-running digital amplification with 40 watts per zone
- Equipped with both serial and Ethernet ports for control
- Free iPhone and Android apps for convenient remote control
The Amplifier is the hub of your system. It connects to in-wall and/or in-ceiling speakers to distribute audio throughout your home. You can also connect in-wall keypads, volume source controls, and Remote Input Modules to control the system and connect external audio sources in any room you choose.
With the Hi-Fi 2 system, you can set each zone to play the same source at the same volume, or you can play different audio sources simultaneously at different volume levels in different locations. Audio sources can be located throughout the house using Remote Input Modules, or sources can be locally connected at the Hi-Fi 2 amplifier.
Powerful Audio Amplification
The cool-running unit uses Class D digital amplification to deliver 40W of sound to each zone (20 watts RMS at 8 ohms per channel), and includes one input for additional amplification. The 8-ohm rating allows reliable power delivery to speakers over long wire runs. A variable line out amplification output is available for zone 1 (in addition to the built-in amps) as well as page/mute and system on jacks.
The amplifier is designed for installation in a Leviton Structured Media Center at half-width. Speakers and other components are connected using Cat5 cable. The Hi-Fi 2 can be used stand-alone, or integrated with a Leviton home automation system for audio automation based on schedule or activity, in addition to announcements/paging.
This 4x4 system provides a maximum of four zones and four sources of audio. The system may be expanded to 16 zones and 8 sources by connecting an Expansion Controller (sold separately).
Note: Amplifier only. Requires speakers, sold separately.

Leviton Smartphone App
Leviton has developed a stand-alone iOS app for controlling the Hi-Fi 2 4x4 distributed audio system from an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. Compatible distributed audio systems include the Hi-Fi 2 4x4 (Four Zone, Four Source) and the Hi-Fi 2 8x8 (Eight Zone, Eight Source, expandable to 16 Zone, 8 Source). The app replicates the familiar Volume Source Control, the Hi-Fi 2's in-wall control, and uses the same multi-push functionality for advanced audio settings.
