The ZA-100 is an integrated zone pre/power-amp for a multi-zone system. It is available in 2, 4, 6, and 8 channels with a separate volume control for each set of channels and a master volume (the 2-channel only has the master volume).
It was originally designed for use in a bar or restaurant setting where you would want multiple channels throughout the room but at varying levels depending on their location and all controlled from a central location. But the ZA-100 can also work well for many home environments with a similar requirement.
There are three main inputs selectable from a switch on the front as well as a separate input for each set of channels if you desire to have different sources playing in different zones. This option is selectable using a toggle switch beside each volume control for each set of channels.
The ZA-100 has 100 watts RMS of power output per channel into 4 ohms which will work very well for normal sized rooms and normal playback levels. If you're trying to fill larger spaces such as great rooms or outdoor patios, the ZA-1000 zone amp is a better choice.
