Inside Your Sound

RETRO Music Distribution and Intercom Systems

No more wondering what to do with your outdated, single-function antique intercom! The RETRO Music Distribution and Intercom Systems are designed to update pre-existing in-wall home intercom systems – using your existing 3, 4, or 6 wire systems – for a quick and easy upgrade to a state-of-the-art multi-source music distribution system.
The RETRO is a complete system that can be customized to your home and your specific requirements, as it is a component-based system:
  • RETRO-M Master Station: Main interface that controls the music, intercom functions, volume levels, bass and treble levels, clock settings, and more. The Portable Music Player Bay is integrated into the Master Station and can be heard from any Room or Patio Station.
  • RETRO-5R Room Station: In-wall intercoms in rooms throughout the home that enable selection between intercom, radio, and portable music sources. Also includes communications with other stations, including the Master and Door stations. Ceiling or in-wall speakers can be added to each Room Station.
  • RETRO-VC Volume Control: Indoor amplified volume control with two-source option and volume control, typically used in rooms with no need for a Room Station.
  • RETRO-5P Patio Station: Weather-resistant station with Room Station functionality designed for outdoor installation in protected areas such as a patio or porch. Outdoor cube or rock speakers can be added.
  • RETRO-D Door Station: Weather-resistant station designed for outdoor installation in protected areas. Enables communication with other stations for verification of guest identity before opening the door with optional door or gate release. Also includes a selection of door chimes.
  • RETRO Room Adaptor and Trim Plates: Optional hardware designed to fully cover existing intercom wall openings, eliminating the need for drywall repair. Covers holes for vertical or horizontal stations, including stations up to 8″ large.
  • Auxiliary Wall Input: Optional wall input that allows connection to CD or tape players, satellite radios, or computers.


The RETRO system offers a modern design that complements any d├ęcor, and delivers more features than existing intercoms:
  • Built-in AM/FM radio with ten (10) preset options
  • Portable Music Player (PMP) Bay to plug-and-play a wide variety of MP3 devices such as iPods, Zunes or hand-held satellite radios – either from downloaded or streamed music
  • USB or Firewire connectivity to charge MP3 devices as they play
  • Room adaptor and trim plates that allow installation of new stations into existing intercom wall openings without requiring drywall repair, even if the fit is not exact
  • Choice of two (2) music source options in every room, enabling different music sources to be played in different rooms
  • Automatic selective call technology that broadcasts voice calls throughout the home, but only broadcasts between the stations in use once the call is answered
  • Hands-free communication for the party receiving the call
  • Capability to monitor single or multiple zones
  • Hands-free operation at Master Station with IREMOTE control (available as an option)
  • Expands up to thirteen (13) zones
  • Option to connect to ceiling or in-wall speakers from Master, Room, and Patio Stations
  • Door communications with optional door release feature
  • Turn on/off radio from any room station
