The RC-W100 is a wall-mountable programmable remote control for the Tascam MX-8A Matrix Mixer or other compatible products. Four switch buttons and one encoder with push-button function allow users to select between four or eight audio sources, adjust volume levels and mute sound in a permanently installed audio system. The easy-to-read, illuminated display provides information about the selected audio source and the current volume setting.

Up to eight controllers can be used with one mixer by daisy-chaining the units via an RS-485 connection with a cable length of up to 200 meters. End-users can be prevented from making mistakes by assigning only necessary functions to the encoder and switches using Tascam MX Connect.

The RC-W100 extends the comfort of any sound reinforcement system where the MX-8A matrix mixer is at the centre.
