Sending a spoken page to all zones

Postby stouchst » Tue Jun 17, 2008 11:36 pm

I decided to go with the Russound CAV6.6 system. I want the ability to send out spoken pages and posts on this forum suggest that this is possible with CAV6.6.

Can someone verify if the following macro is able to do this:

MLServeCMD.Macro|MLCav66|MessageAll~1~<<NAME>>~Left!MLCav66|MessageAll~2~<<NAME>>~Left!MLSPEAK|Incoming Call from <<NAME>>!MLCmd|ChangeScene~All~0019_callerID.mls

Is the output of MLSpeak audibly sent to all CAV6.6 zones?

Also, a lot of shops stopped selling CAV6.6. Is there something better out there at the same price point?

Yes - the above macro will work. If you only have one Russound Controller then it can be simplified to:
MLServeCMD.Macro|MLCav66|MessageAll~1~<<NAME>>~Left!MLSPEAK|Incoming Call from <<NAME>>!MLCmd|ChangeScene~All~0019_callerID.mls

You'd have to have the audio of the PC connected to the paging input on your Russound CAV6.6 - not the CAM or CAA do not have this input.

This will display the name of the caller on your Russound keypads, speak the name of the caller and switch all of your touch screens to the caller ID scene.

This also assumes you have MLSpeak installed on your MLServer machine.

Niles sells a product similar to the CAV6.6 - the Niles ZR-4630 - that is priced similarly. Don't have experience with it and don't know if its better or wose than Russound. Sonos sells an ala carte wireless system that has received very good reviews. Could be an alternative, expecially if you have to retrofit wiring. Crestron makes the Adagio line, which probably is much more expensive. Russound has an upscale alternative, their Series E, but way above about $5K
