Kick Butt System

  • Summary: MCA teamed with a DMS from Russound = an amazing system! I have powered 15 speakers + 2 outside with stand alone Russound amp with this system. All zones sound awesome! Plenty of power and I have room to grow without more to purchase. Great control! My installer was impressed with Russound as he had not installed any Russound.....yet! I have no affiliation. In fact Russound does not like that I purchased from Amazon. Amazon is not a dealer of Russound.

Amazon repair procedure must be dramatically improved !

  • Summary: I ordered two Russound MCAC5 C-Series 8 and faced to a defect on both units. First, as the units have been shipped from Amazon US, it was extemely complex to get the procedure to access the repair center. Amazon France and Switzerland only told me : it's not an item sold by us, thus we cannot do anything !!!!! I sent them back to the Amazon repair center in the US (it costs me around $ 200.-).

Works like a charm. Russound helped me set it up.

  • Summary: This device is amazing. You better know your audio installation stuff before you purchase it because it is complicated. The team at Russound is friendly and knowledgeable. Got to know a few of them. The program designers are not keeping up with the times, though. No plug and play here. I figured out with their help how to interface my SONOS. This Russound unit combined with the Sonos is incredible. The wireless app downloaded from I-tunes works like it's designed.

Solid product but not fancy

Frambot, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought a house with an existing MCA-C5 6 room system where the previous owner insisted in taking the amp. So a few mouse clicks later and there's a big dent in the credit card but I have a replacement up and running. The basic room config via the downloaded PC software is pretty easy. Control of other equipment via IR a bit more complex. Sound seems pretty nice and the room controllers are well thought out and do their job well.
