Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), the leading manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since 1985, announced today that Design Journal magazine awarded the Hi-Fi 2 by HAI whole home audio system with a Platinum Award for Design Excellence.
ADEX Awards are given annually for superior product design of furnishings and building materials marketed to the design trade. Design Journal, the international trade publication for interior designers, architects, and facility managers is the proud sponsor of ADEX.
The powerful yet compact Hi-Fi 2 plays music from devices you already own (or new devices you wish to purchase), and is so easy to operate that anyone can enjoy it. The base system features 8 zones and 8 sources and may be expanded to 16 zones. Installation remains simple with standard Cat-5 wiring and standard speaker wire.
The new OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) Volume-Source Control (VSC) displays source name, volume bar chart, bass, treble, balance and more. It can even display artist name and song title. Audio sources can be locally inputted at the Hi-Fi 2 amplifier, or located throughout the house using Remote Input Modules (RIM). The color of the VSC and RIM may be changed to complement the interior décor.
“Integrators know that Hi-Fi 2 is powerful and simple to install, but having the low-profile design aspect recognized by architects and interior designers is stupendous”, explained HAI President, Jay McLellan. “This is another highlight for the robust Hi-Fi 2, having already won a Consumer Electronics Association Platinum Mark of Excellence award.”
