Gira does it first: good entertainment right out of the wall. The Gira flush-mounted radio makes it possible. And now a new generation of devices is coming to market – the Gira RDS flush-mounted radio. Meaning that external sources can now be integrated as well, such as an MP3 player.
The Gira RDS flush-mounted radio can be integrated into the Gira System 55 and E22 switch ranges as well as into the F100. Requirements for this could hardly be simpler: two flush-mounted boxes and nothing else. No additional antenna, no further connection and no boxes. The Gira RDS flush-mounted radio can now even be installed in only one flush-mounted box, because the loudspeaker included in delivery does not need to be installed in direct combination with the radio anymore but can be offset. Connection of an additional loudspeaker is also possible – the Gira RDS flush-mounted radio detects connected loudspeakers automatically and also switches automatically between mono and stereo operation.
Operation of the Gira RDS flush-mounted radio is via touch-sensitive operating areas. To switch on, touch anywhere on the entire operating surface instead of the usual On/Off surface. The display shows the frequency of the radio station being received. When the RDS signal is transmitted, the station name is shown in large letters and the frequency and current time in small letters on the display. During initial operation the two strongest stations are stored in the two station presets. These can be modified at any time.
External audio sources, for example an MP3 player, can be fed into the Gira RDS flush-mounted radio via the stereo AUX output. As such the radio in the wall is expanded to become a multi-functional audio interface, increasing audio convenience substantially. Via a 230 V/AC auxiliary input the radio can also be automatically switched on externally, for example in combination with room lighting. In sleep mode the radio switches off automatically 30 minutes after switching on. The Gira RDS flush-mounted radio is available starting January 2010.
