The Control Bus lets you control your other CX series units. See the following diagrams when connecting the CXN100 using the provided Control Bus cable.
Another added feature with this Control Bus is the use of the StreamMagic app. You can use the StreamMagic app to control other CX series units via the CXN100.
When using the app to turn the CXN100 on/off, this will also turn the CXA on/off. The app can also be used to control the volume of the CXA. Connect the CXN100 Control Bus Out to CXA Control Bus In.
If you wish to control the volume of your CXA via the SM app, please ensure that 'Pre-amp' mode is disabled and 'Control Bus' has been set to 'Amplifier' in the app device settings.
Note: Without using the StreamMagic app to control the CXA.
When turning the CXA on/off, this will also turn the CXN100 on/off. Connect the CXA Control Bus Out to CXN100 Control Bus In.
When turning the CXN on/off, this will turn the CXA and CXC on/off.
With all three CX devices, connect the CXN100 Control Bus out to CXA Control Bus in. Then connect the CXA Control Bus out to CXC Control Bus in.
Note: Do NOT loop back from the CXC Control Bus out to the CXN100 Control Bus in.
Control Bus will also need to be enabled and set to Amplifier within the device settings in the StreamMagic app once the app has been connected to the CXN100.
Note: If a device with APD enabled automatically switches off after the selected period of inactivity, this will also switch off the other connected devices.
