Audio Design Associates’ SWAN
SWAN (Structured Wiring Audio Network) from Audio Design Associates is a multi-room audio system aimed at the multiple dwelling unit (MDU) and new home construction markets. An entry-level-priced modular audio system that doesn’t skimp on performance, it fits into standard structured wiring cabinets mounted between wall studs, centralizing the majority of the system in a termination-friendly location and eliminating the need for custom cabinets and racks. Compatible with HD and satellite tuners, DVD players, iPods, cable boxes and more, it runs on Cat-5 cable and easily connects with home control systems. SWAN adheres to the Fannie Mae requirement guidelines; its electronics are permanently mounted in a sanctioned enclosure. It’s scheduled to ship this summer.
