I need some help

Based on the award-winning technologies of ELAN's S6 and S12 Multi-Room Controllers, the new S86A and S86AVP combine all the virtues of our most affordable, entry-level system with the powerful features and flexibility of our flagship model to bring you the most versatile, scalable, and feature-rich multi-room entertainment systems available today. 

Eight audio/video inputs allow you to choose from all your favorite music and video sources – CDs, DVDs, Satellite Radio, TV - even everything on your iPod®. Enjoy the sights and sounds of all these and more, independently, in six different rooms. Up to four controllers can be linked together, providing you with complete flexibility to create customized systems just right for your home. 

Both models incorporate many powerful features such as bass, treble, loudness EQ and programmable turn-on levels for each zone, whole-house music, and A/V source-sensing for system feedback at keypads and touch panels; all at a price that defies common industry trends. 

The S86A has everything you need to turn your entire home into a ready-to-play entertainment system, including an integrated 12-channel x 40 WPC amplifier that pumps all the clean musical power you need to speakers in every room.
