Top Class Digital Amplifiers: EMPHASER’s Monolith Series

Power for perfection – EMPHASER’s three new amps combine power and sound

The traditional brand EMPHASER presents three powerful amps in its Monolith line: the full-range mono amplifier EA-M1 and two 4-channel power amps, the EA-M4 and EA-M4x.
Superior quality, timeless design, exceptional performance – the monolith series offers not only punchy power, but also an outstanding dynamic range and excellent signal fidelity. Minimal distortion and a warm, clear sound are properties that distinguish these top class digital amplifiers.
A Monolith is not one to keep a low profile – true to this motto the design has been given the necessary space to visually underscore the special character of this exceptional amplifier. The carefully machined edges, the engraved logo, and the very name of the model itself on the top plate, together with the sand blasted surface give it an impressive appearance. Just as perfectly finished are the massive feet that raise the Monolith.
The connections are also massive. All models are equipped with encapsulated 35 mm2 terminals and RCA sockets fixed to the side panel with threaded nuts. Equipment-wise, each amp offers a comprehensive crossover that can be routed as high or low pass as desired. The crossover point can be set from 20 Hz (high pass) and 50 Hz (low pass) up to 5000 Hz, and can therefore also be used for active system designs.
In combination with the massive aluminium heat sinks, the class D amplifier circuit produces enormous power output. The flag ship EA-M4x already has an impressive 4 x 230 W RMS available when working into 4 ohms; in bridged mode this becomes a mighty 2 x 670 W RMS. The EA-M4 model with a respectable 4 x 105 W RMS into 4 ohms is intended for more simple tasks – but does really well in the 2-channel bridge mode with 2 x 340 W RMS and extremely low distortion figures. The EA-M1 produces a powerful 1 x 600 W RMS into 4 ohms and 1 x 1500 W RMS into 1 ohm; however it is intended as a full-range amplifier so that high performance dual mono designs are also realizable for power hungry component systems. The EMPHASER Monolith devices are as grown up and powerful as it gets…

EMPHASER has been a name in the car audio sector for 25 years. The brand has become a well respected brand since middle of the 1990s for its enormously powerful subwoofers of the XTREME series, followed later by the series SPL, Linear-X, Neo-SPL and the state-of-the-art woofer E15NEO-COMP. The present range covers subwoofers, vehicle-specific Plug“N“Play component sets and classic lines of loudspeakers and amplifiers.
EMPHASER products are distributed exclusively through Europe’s largest car media specialist, the Swiss ACR AG.

Sound Upgrade for Factory Systems – AXTON DSP Amplifiers

Professional sound thanks to a sound processor, convenient control via mobile phone app, Bluetooth music streaming, attractive price – AXTON’s new power amps A540DSP and A590DSP are the optimum sound upgrade for OEM radios.

With its compact DSP amplifiers the car hifi specialist AXTON already has been a trendsetter for years in the area of Plug & Play upgrades for factory systems. With their performance, comprehensive features and simple operation via smartphone app as well as the attractive price AXTON’s DSP power amps have been able to excite users and the trade alike. With two new 4-channel power amps AXTON is now systematically upgrading this winning amplifier design. The A540DSP and A590DSP do not only offer a more advanced DSP amplifier technology, but also the possibility of streaming music to the amps over Bluetooth.

COMFORTABLE CONTROL VIA APP
The difference from many DSP amplifiers, where the user must inconveniently connect a notebook to tune audio values in the DSP OSD or buy an additional remote control, it is the ease of use which is paramount with the new AXTON generation. Control of the DSP takes place via Bluetooth and a free app for both iOS and Android smartphones. This app shows and allows to control all DSP based functions so that even newcomers can make the DSP settings without previous knowledge.

WIDE RANGE OF FUNCTIONS VIA DSP
The digital sound processor has all the useful tools like time alignment, freely configurable frequency filters (6/12/18/24 dB), channel gain controller, a freely configurable parametric 31-band equalizer for each channel and 5-band EQ for the subwoofer channel.
Once you have tuned the sound to the vehicle acoustics and your personal preferences, the settings can be saved in the amplifier and on the smartphone.

BLUETOOTH AUDIO STREAMING
A second integrated Bluetooth interface allows you to stream your own music collection very easily to the amp. Just connect your smartphone to the amp, press PLAY – and the music starts. Thus the music collection on the smartphone is always available over a wireless connection, even if the radio has no appropriate input interface.

COMPACT WITH HIGH QUALITY SOUND
AXTON’s new DSP amplifier series opens up previously unknown sound dimensions, while offering outstanding performance. Thanks to the latest class D digital amplifier technology, heat build-up and current draw of the amps are always under control, efficient heat dissipation is provided by the aluminum housing: just 145 x 40 x 114 mm (for A540DSP) and 185 x 40 x 114 mm (for A590DSP).
Both models are ideal for purist car hifi installations, offering several application options thanks to the plug and play connection, including Auto turn-on/off and the integrated 5-channel DSP controlled preamp outputs. The 4-channel amplifier A590DSP is stable into 2 ohm loads, which increases the area of use for certain factory systems.

SIMPLE TO FIT: PLUG & PLAY
AXTON’s amplifiers are connected to the original radio using the 1.5 m long ISO standard cable supplied, and can be installed out of sight at various places in the vehicle. Furthermore, there are numerous optional plug and play connection cables for diverse vehicles from Volkswagen, Audi, Seat, Skoda, BMW, Mini, Mercedes, Ford and Opel, as well as Kia, Hyundai, Nissan and Peugeot.

EMPHASER has been a name in the car audio sector for 25 years.

ZENEC’s Z-N956 Infotainer awarded „Highlight“ Accolade

ZENEC’s new 2-DIN multimedia system with DAB+ and extra large 9″/22.9 cm touchscreen impresses in test by German magazine Car & HiFi (issue 03/2019)

With the Z-N956 the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC now has a 2-DIN DAB+ infotainer with an extra large 9″/22.9 cm touchscreen in its product range. The complete package of Z-N956 plus sat nav software Z-EMAP56-MH, obtainable separately, has now been tested by Car & HiFi in issue 03/2019, which was enthusiastic. The testers rated the price/performance as outstanding, awarding ZENEC’s new infotainer the ‚Highlight‘ accolade in the Top Class category.

EXTRA LARGE DISPLAY
An infotainer with a 9″/22.9 cm display that fits in a conventional 2-DIN slot? Impossible, said the Car & HiFi testers, „because a nine inch display is actually too large for the classic double DIN format.“ The journalists were even more astounded by the clever construction of the Z-N956. „ZENEC solves the problem by sitting the display a little in front of the actual DIN housing; so when installed it protrudes somewhat and can be larger than the installation slot. As a result it fits most vehicles.“

PRIME ENTERTAINMENT
„Complete infotainment in 9 inch format“ was the judgment passed by the well-respected testers on the multimedia section of the Z-N956. Apart from twin tuners with DAB+, FM, Bluetooth, HDMI, dual USB, multi-zone, DSP and many AV connections, other features of the Z-N956 include „comprehensive audio functions“. Thus the integrated signal processor offers a 10-band equalizer, crossovers, and 5-channel time alignment. „In addition, the Z-N956 can communicate well with smartphones“, was the praise from Car & HiFi. Android Auto is supported as well, offering the possibility of using Google Maps for navigation.

OPTIMAL SAT NAV – NOT ONLY FOR MOTORHOMES
Optional navigation software on a microSD card also allows the Z-N956 to be upgraded into a fully integrated sat nav system. Two variants are available to choose from: the Z-EMAP56 in-car version, and the Z-EMAP56-MH motorhome version tested by Car & HiFi. Detailed maps covering 47 European countries, more than 6 million POIs, TMC, TPEG free, together with free map updates for 3 years are offered by both sat nav versions. The motorhome variant, however, contains extras such as a camping POI database with information on approx. 20,000 different camping and motorhome stopover sites in almost every European country.
But that“s not all: „For those also with a larger motorhome the MH sat nav provides various preset vehicle profiles to make sure you are navigated only along suitable routes“, explained the journalists. „Important parameters like weight, height, length, width and so on can be individually set and then taken into account for selection of the route. This eliminates nasty surprises such as bridges that are too low or narrow local through-roads.“
But its detailed solutions also make the Z-N956 attractive for use in motorhomes: „Three cameras on the ZENEC can be connected to the Zenec to keep all corners of the vehicle in view when maneuvering“, the magazine explained. „In addition there is an audio channel for a microphone that is triggered by the reverse gear so that it is automatically activated as soon as reverse is engaged. Therefore you don’t just see but also hear what is going on behind the vehicle – very practical, for example, if you want someone to stand there and help direct.“

INNOVATIVE BLUETOOTH SOLUTIONS
The Z-N956 has an integrated Bluetooth module which, according to the Car & HiFi testers „enables comfortable hands-free calling and music streaming from a mobile phone.“ And the Z-N956 offers even more via Bluetooth. „The Z-N956 can also stream music wirelessly to a Bluetooth speaker or headphones. That makes a lot of sense in a motorhome. You can then sit in comfort outside at a stopover site and still enjoy the full range of media features of the ZENEC.“ This is particularly practical. So that you don’t have to go into the vehicle to control the music playback, the ZENEC can be controlled with an app from the touchscreen of the mobile phone „comfortably and intuitively“.

SUMMARY
„The Zenec Z-N956 is a premium naviceiver. Its large display makes it attractive for most cars, but particularly also for motorhomes“, was the enthusiastic verdict of the journalists, awarding the Z-N956 the ‚Highlight‘ accolade in the Top Class category.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.
The Zenec multimedia range is perceived to follow the edge of technology, but also to stand out with an exceptional price/performance value. Yet, quality before quantity is the other important maxim given, Zenec is strictly adhering to.
In 2008, Zenec brought the first E>GO model onto the market, thereby immediately establishing a completely new category of device: the vehicle-specific naviceiver. E>GOs are a perfect fit – visually and technically – in the respective target vehicle, without additional bezels, adapters and hours of installation work. With the new line up 2018 there are E>GOs to fit into over 60 models of vehicle.

Powerful Sound Tuning – EMPHASER’s New DIGIT Amplifiers

EMPHASER’s DSP power amps EA-D800, EA-D500, and the digital sound processor EA-D8 optimize the sound and can be conveniently controlled from a smartphone.

The traditional car audio brand EMPHASER expands its line-up with an innovative power amp series. The DIGIT series consists of the EA-D800 (8-channel) and EA-D500 (5-channel) amplifiers, as well as a pure 8-channel sound processor EA-D8 that are ideal for in-car sound optimization. With its many setting options, easy control from a mobile phone, compact size, and minimal installation effort, the new DIGITs allow an audible improvement in the sound of the factory system or retrofit systems.
SOUND TUNING VIA DSP
The heart of each DIGIT power amp is the integrated DSP, which enables the music signal to be tuned in a multitude of ways. Equipped with a parametric equalizer, time alignment, active crossover, and noise gate function, the way is clear for perfect listening pleasure with EMPHASER DIGIT.
The DSP settings can be conveniently controlled from the smartphone. The control app is free of charge and can be found on www.emphaser.com (Android) or in the Apple App Store, respectively. It can also be tried out before purchasing the device. In addition, it is possible to stream audio over Bluetooth directly from the smartphone to the amplifier. The changeover between radio and mobile phone playback is fully automatic.
EA-D800 – THE TOP MODEL
The 8-channel amplifier EA-D800 is well suited for getting more sound quality out of factory systems or providing retrofit systems with the necessary power. For this purpose the preamp includes two amplifier sections. An audiophile class A/B module which delivers 4 x 30 W RMS for smaller speakers or tweeters. For woofers, subwoofers and power hungry component systems, a class D amplifier section offers a broad application spectrum with 4 x 60 W into 4 ohms, 4 x 120 W into 2 ohms and bridged with 2 x 176 W RMS into 4 ohms.
The parametric 15-band equalizer for each channel allows resonance spots and other acoustic inconsistencies to be selectively improved. Time alignment helps to achieve a precise sound staging, while the integrated crossover ensures that the connected speakers reproduce only the part of the frequency spectrum for which they are suited.
A special feature of the new EA-D800 is channel management, whereby each output can be assigned one or more input signals as desired. That also includes merging a tweeter and woofer input signal to form a complete output signal. This summing function is particularly necessary in the case of some OEM premium sound systems.
The total equipment package makes the EA-D800 the ultimate tool for upgrading a factory sound system.

EA-D500 & EA-D8 – FLEXIBLE IN USE
The EA-D500 is designed for high quality classic applications. The compact 5-channel amplifier rated at 4 x 32 W RMS helps factory systems achieve better performance, and can also provide powerful support for retrofit speaker systems. The fully-fledged subwoofer channel rated at 176 W RMS offers ample power for a range of subwoofer solutions. Furthermore, with the processed preamp outputs the system can be upgraded even further.
The EA-D8 is designed as a pure 8-channel sound processor without an integrated amplifier; otherwise it offers the same range of functions as the EA-D800: parametric equalizer (7-band per channel), time alignment, active crossover, and input/output management.

EMPHASER DIGIT: PLUG & PLAY
Installation of the DIGIT amplifier is child’s play. All models can be controlled using the connectors supplied, or the optional vehicle-specific Plug & Play cables. Both amplifier models obtain the power they require via a separate connecting terminal.

EMPHASER has been a name in the car audio sector for 25 years. The brand has become a well respected brand since middle of the 1990s for its enormously powerful subwoofers of the XTREME series, followed later by the series SPL, Linear-X, Neo-SPL and the state-of-the-art woofer E15NEO-COMP. The present range covers subwoofers, vehicle-specific Plug“N“Play component sets and classic lines of loudspeakers and amplifiers.

Parking Assistants for Motorhomes: ZENEC’s New Rear View Cams

Excellent view to the rear side – ZENEC expands its accessory product range with the addition of three brake light cameras for commercial vehicles, motorhomes, and transporters.

Whether during reversing, parking, or turning of large and heavy commercial vehicles or motorhomes, it is of high importance to keep the area behind the vehicle in full view. Three high quality rear view cameras specially designed for deployment in utility vehicles and motorhomes are now listed in the product range of the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC: the ZE-RCE3702 for Fiat Ducato, Citroën Jumper and Peugeot Boxer, the ZE-RCE4606 for Mercedes Sprinter and VW Crafter, as well as the ZE-RCE5002 compatible with the Renault Trafic, Opel Vivaro, Nissan NV300 and Fiat Talento.
ZENEC’s new rear view cams replace the original third brake light and are swiftly connected to the target vehicle with their Plug & Play system. Naturally the third brake light is always retained, as in the case of the ZE-RCE3702 an LED brake light is integrated, while ZE-RCE4606 and ZE-RCE5002 make use of the original lamps of the vehicle.
All three models feature a high quality CCD sensor, with impressively low color noise and outstanding image quality. The high resolution of 752 x 494 pixels and the high light sensitivity of 0.1 lux provide clear images even in dim light conditions. The automatic white balance and the automatic backlight compensation ensure high contrast images. In addition the IR LED night illumination system sustains a clear well illuminated view to the rear at night. The day/night mode switching is auto controlled by the LDR element.
All three brake light cams are with 120° (diagonal) picture angle, while the vertical picture section can be manually optimized by adjusting the housing in 3 steps. The cams also feature an internal microphone to provide auditory support of what is going on behind the vehicle.
The high quality material and parts, together with the IP68 rated cam housing, offer perfect view also under extreme weather conditions in a temperature range of -20° C to +70° C.
Vehicle installation is simple by the Plug & Play system. All cameras are compatible with almost every head unit or monitor that comes with CVBS RCA input for rear view cams, naturally also to ZENEC’s multimedia navigation systems, including the vehicle-specific E>GO models.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.

Top Sat Nav for AUDI A3 – The ZENEC Z-E3150 Convinces Testers

„Great infotainment package for the AUDI A3 at a very attractive price“ is the verdict of the German Car & HiFi magazine (issue 2/2019) on the Z-E3150 from ZENEC, awarding it a „Highlight“ accolade.

The Swiss firm ZENEC is a specialist for in-car navigation systems and multimedia systems, impressive for their state of the art features and ease of use. With the Z-E3150, ZENEC now has an innovative retrofit solution for AUDI A3 8P/8PA models in its product range. The German Car & HiFi trade magazine has just thoroughly tested the new ZENEC in issue 02/2019, and is enthusiastic. A „first-class solution for the AUDI A3″is how the testers describe the ZENEC infotainer, awarding it the „Highlight“ accolade.

GREAT VEHICLE INTEGRATION
Like every model from the vehicle-specific ZENEC E>GO series, the Z-E3150 is also perfectly tailored for the AUDI A3. „The new ZENEC is a perfect fit in the AUDI A3 – visually, mechanically and electrically“, conclude the Car & HiFi tech journalists. „Interfaced with the vehicle electronics via the CAN bus, it supports comfort functions like connection to the driver information system (DIS), or the multifunction steering wheel, and the OPS and ECON Climatronic displays.“

Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.
The Zenec multimedia range is perceived to follow the edge of technology, but also to stand out with an exceptional price/performance value. Yet, quality before quantity is the other important maxim given, Zenec is strictly adhering to.
In 2008, Zenec brought the first E>GO model onto the market, thereby immediately establishing a completely new category of device: the vehicle-specific naviceiver. E>GOs are a perfect fit – visually and technically – in the respective target vehicle, without additional bezels, adapters and hours of installation work.

Sparkling Test Performance: ZENEC Infotainer Z-E2060 for VW T5

Thorough test conducted by German Car & Hifi magazine (01/2019): ZENEC’s new multimedia system for the VW T5 Multivan and California awarded the „Highlight“ accolade.

The triumphal march of the vehicle-specific ZENEC E>GO Series continues. Specially developed for the VW T5 Multivan and California, the new Infotainer Z-E2060 is another really successful model in the product range of the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC. The German Car & HiFi trade magazine has now thoroughly tested the „Bulli Specialist“ in issue 01/2019. „A great entertainment solution for the VW T5“, is the enthusiastic verdict of the trade journalists, awarding the Z-E20160 the „Highlight“ accolade.

PERFECT FIT FOR VW T5 MULTIVAN
As regards vehicle integration the Z-E2060 has already convinced the testers right down the line. ZENEC’s new infotainer integrates not only perfectly in the instrument panel of the latest Bulli, but with its comprehensive features and functionality is also perfectly tailored to the VW T5 – including all electrical connections. „The CAN interface enables communication with the onboard vehicle electronics“, say the journalists of the multimedia device: „functions like steering wheel remote control, parking radar, and climate control are supported by the Z-E2060“.

MULTIMEDIA FOR EXPERTS
With a CD/DVD drive, two USB connections, and the HDMI port the Z-E2060 is optimally equipped with all the multimedia functions, according to the tech journalists. In addition there is the DAB+ tuner for „crystal clear noise-free reception“ of digital radio, as well as many sound tools; for example, the 10-band equalizer and finely adjustable time alignment. „In the test lab the Z-E2060 does not put a foot wrong“, is the verdict of the critical journalists. „Picture quality and sound are also impressive.“

OPTIMAL OPERATION, OPTIMAL PRICING
The journalists agree that the „new“ ZENEC will excite drivers of the Bulli – and not just because of the „attractive“ price. Also the ease of use leaves nothing to be desired for the Car & HiFi testers. „Thanks to the clear menus, hard keys and rotary knobs you soon have the wide range of functions of the Z-E2060 under control. The large 6.5-inch (16.5 cm) capacitive touchscreen is brilliant and reacts promptly at the touch of a finger.“

TWOFOLD NAVIGATION SOLUTION
The Z-E2060 is able to not only use multimedia, but can also be used as a navigation system – SmartLink makes that possible: „This is because the SmartLink function allows the screen content of the smartphone to be mirrored on the ZENEC“, explain the testers. „The apps, including navigation on the mobile phone, can then be controlled from the touchscreen of the ZENEC.“ This is done by simply connecting the Android phone to one of the two USB ports.
But even without SmartLink the ZENEC Infotainer can be upgraded to a navigation device extremely easily. „If you would rather have offline navigation integrated, simply order the Z-EMAP50 software at the same time to turn the ZENEC from a moniceiver into a full-function navitainer“, is the enthusiastic opinion of the testers.

SUMMARY WITH FLYING COLORS
According to the verdict of the tech journalists the Z-E2060 has „mastered the test course with flying colors“. „With the Z-E2060 ZENEC offers the full range of media, communications and navigation features for the popular Bulli VW T5“, states the summary of the well-respected tech journalists. The Z-E2060 is, according to the testers, „a great entertainment solution for the VW T5“.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.
The Zenec multimedia range is perceived to follow the edge of technology, but also to stand out with an exceptional price/performance value. Yet, quality before quantity is the other important maxim given, Zenec is strictly adhering to.
In 2008, Zenec brought the first E>GO model onto the market, thereby immediately establishing a completely new category of device: the vehicle-specific naviceiver. E>GOs are a perfect fit – visually and technically – in the respective target vehicle, without additional bezels, adapters and hours of installation work.

In addition a Bluetooth unit provides comfortable hands-free calling and music streaming via A2DP. Also convincing are the sophisticated audio functions of the Z-N956, incorporating a DSP chip with 5-channel time alignment, a 10-band graphic equalizer, as well as an active crossover with high and low-pass filters.

ANDROID AUTO SMARTPHONE INTEGRATION
The Z-N956 is Google Android Auto certified, integrating supported apps of Android smartphones for easiest access and control via device display: for example Google Maps, Spotify, Youtube or huge online music libraries. Upon connection of an Android smartphone, the apps appear on the display of the Z-N956, for most convenient control by touchscreen, or the Google voice command assistant.

NAVIGATE SAFELY – IN PASSENGER CARS AND MOTORHOMES
For the Z-N956 two navigation packages are available that expand the infotainer for specific purposes: the Z-EMAP56 for cars, and the Z-EMAP56-MH suited for motorhomes. Both navigation packages contain digital maps for 47 European countries with 6.5 million Premium POIs. The map data can be updated for 3 years free of charge.
In the case of Z-EMAP56-MH important special functions for motorhomes are provided, such as preconfigured vehicle profiles, the input of vehicle parameters, and a comprehensive camping and motorhome stopover sites database. Of interest for use in motorhomes is the feature whereby up to three rear-view cameras can be connected to the Z-N956 – controlled directly via the CAM soft key. In addition, the Z-N956 can transmit audio signals to external Bluetooth speakers and headphones so that you can also enjoy your music outside your motorhome.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.
The Zenec multimedia range is perceived to follow the edge of technology, but also to stand out with an exceptional price/performance value. Yet, quality before quantity is the other important maxim given, Zenec is strictly adhering to.
In 2008, Zenec brought the first E>GO model onto the market, thereby immediately establishing a completely new category of device: the vehicle-specific naviceiver. E>GOs are a perfect fit – visually and technically – in the respective target vehicle, without additional bezels, adapters and hours of installation work. With the new line up 2018 there are E>GOs to fit into over 60 models of vehicle.

Retrofitting made easy: ZENEC’s license plate camera ZE-RVC55LP

The ZE-RVC55LP from ZENEC is an easy to install rear-view camera that is simply mounted on the license plate frame.

ZENEC ZE-RVC55LP: license plate camera

Can it be so easy to retrofit a rear-view camera? With the ZE-RVC55LP the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC now has a flexible license plate camera on the market that can be mounted with just a few steps to the existing license plate frame. The high resolution ZE-RVC55LP can therefore be used as a rear-view or as a front camera.
Equipped with a CMOS sensor that is very sensitive to light, the universal ZE-RVC55LP delivers a detailed, high contrast image, even in poor light conditions and during twilight. For the image output you can choose between a normal or a mirror image. The large horizontal 140° angle of view ensures an excellent overview of what is going on behind the vehicle.
High quality materials and a robust construction guarantee high weather resistance, and hence a long life. Thanks to the special camera housing – built to Protection Class IP69K, the highest standard for water and moisture protection – the ZE-RVC55LP is optimally protected against spray and dust. The wide working temperature range from -30° C to +75° C means the view to the rear is clear at all times, even under extreme temperature and weather conditions.
ZENEC’s new rear-view camera is suitable for all current EU and Swiss plastic license plate frames and, due to the compact construction, can be installed quickly and inconspicuously. A 3-piece system cable (2 x 0.7 m plus 1 x 7 m separable lengths) is also part of the kit.
The ZE-RVC55LP can be connected to all 2-DIN A/V devices (multimedia systems, naviceivers, monitors) that have a rear-view camera input.

Versatile Infotainer: ZENEC Z-E3150 for the AUDI A3

ZENEC’s 2-DIN infotainer for the AUDI A3 combines the latest multimedia functions with optimal in-vehicle integration and can be easily upgraded to a naviceiver

Versatile Infotainer: ZENEC Z-E3150 for the AUDI A3

Z-E3150: Infotainer for AUDI A3

Multimedia specialist ZENEC expands its product range with another vehicle-specific E>GO infotainer: the Z-E3150 from the Essential II Series is the optimal multimedia retrofit for all AUDI A3 8P/8PA models. Top DAB+ radio reception, comprehensive media compatibility and easy smartphone connection – the Z-E3150 is an allrounder that is conveniently controlled from the capacitive touch-sensitive 7″/17.8 cm screen.

PERFECT INTEGRATION IN THE AUDI A3
Radically simpler integration in the specific target vehicle is what distinguishes the E>GO series: a system solution specifically designed for the vehicle. The Z-E3150 is technically and visually tailored to the AUDI A3: due to its specific construction, design of the front control panel and the red/white switchable button illumination it blends in perfectly with the AUDI A3 8P/8PA models. Interfaced with the vehicle electronics via the CAN bus, it supports comfort functions like connection to the driver information system (FIS) or the multifunction steering wheel, and the display of OPS and ECON Climatronic.

MAKES EVERY TRIP MORE ENTERTAINING
Watching DVDs, playing CDs or using a USB stick or smartphone for audio and video playback – no chance of getting bored with so many entertainment options on offer from the Z-E3150. Naturally you can also just listen to radio if you want – in top digital quality. The integrated DAB+ double tuner ensures interference-free reception and boasts Service Following, dynamic station list, MOT Slideshow and DLS text.
A 10-band graphic EQ and the DSP based 5-channel time alignment offer comprehensive settings for optimal adjustment of the sound to personal preferences.

DREAM TEAM: E>GO & ANDROID SMARTPHONES
Thanks to the integrated SmartLink Direct function Android smartphones can be used with the Z-E3150 reliably and directly in any AUDI A3. Simply dock your mobile phone via a USB connection to the E>GO – the screen content of the Android smartphone is then immediately mirrored on the display of the ZENEC infotainer. This enables all apps including the sat nav apps to be accessed without touching the mobile device – that is connected driving in a new dimension.
The Z-E3150 supports the Made for iPod/iPhone functionality of Apple devices. Naturally the E>GO can also use Bluetooth handsfree for conveniently dealing with phone calls via the hands-free system, and streaming music.

Z-E3150: COMFORT AND SAFETY
ZENEC’s new E>GO stands for driving comfort, and enhanced driving safety in the AUDI A3; and not only because of the uncomplicated, intuitive operation of the device while driving. The vehicle status indication shown on the display gives warning of any open doors, open trunk lid or open engine hood, and provides information about the state of the vehicle lighting. Plus there is a cockpit real time display of the actual vehicle data: the tank fill level in liters, the battery voltage, and the outside temperature are clearly presented on the display of the Z-E3150. In addition there are also indications showing if the driver’s seat belt is fastened or the parking brake is applied (depending on the build year of the A3 model).

UPGRADABLE: FROM INFOTAINER TO NAVICEIVER
If the occasional use of sat nav apps via the smartphone is not enough, you can easily upgrade the Z-E3150 with the Z-EMAP50 navigation package, obtainable as an option, to a fully-fledged permanently installed in-car naviceiver. High resolution 3D maps with coverage for 47 European countries and more than 6.5 million Premium POIs, TMC, Text-to-Speech announcement of street names and a host of nav functions make this E>GO the perfect navigator. The maps can be updated for one year free of charge.
