I have a customer with an On-Q A-bus system. One of their 4 zone distribution modules is dead. I'm having a hard time finding the On-Q brand but found one that looks exactly the same from the brand Suttle. My question is, since A-bus is a standard, are the components made by different brands compatible/interchangable? Or do I have to keep looking for the On-Q brand module? Thanks!

The distributors that I get my Russound products from all seem to carry the OnQ, aka Legrand products. I think all their A-Bus based products are part of their LyriQ line. It seems they use the term A-Bus less and less in their literature. Maybe because many associate A-Bus with Russound ???.
This is the conductor / signal list for On-Q / Legrand should you want to compare them with that of other A-Bus based products. Hopefully some of the guys here that know tons more than I do can provide more info.

Pinning:
1. Green/White Left Audio Ground (PreGND)
2. Green Left Audio
3. Orange/White Right Audio Ground (PreGND)
4. Blue IR (IR TX)
5. Blue/White Status (IR RX)
6. Orange Right Audio
7. Brown/White Ground
8. Brown Power (+24Vdc)

Thanks for the info! I found a post from a few years ago from a guy successfully using Russound A-bus volume controls with On-Q distribution hubs and input modules. I found a Russound 4 zone model that uses the same pinout as the one you posted from On-Q so I'll give it a try.
