INTRODUCTION

The GFB-800 is designed to greatly increase the flexibility of a sound system by distributing the signals from a
wide variety ct source components to different rooms within the listening environment, while allowing listeners in each
area full control over the source to be enjoyed and the volume at which it is played.

When the GFBv800 is used with compatible ADCOM components, the listener has the capability of controlling a
tuner and/or CD player directly from the GFB-ooo‘s handheld remote control unit. It the lFlA-SOUII Inlrared Repeaters

are employed, virtually any remotely controllable component can be operated from any part of the house equipped
with the remote infrared sensors. \

OPERATION

As the GFB—800 is designed as a remote control center, the front panel has only three simple functions, with the
majority of the control tasks being performed through the hand-held GFB»800 remote transmitter
