Can the NV-Simplese system work without the NV-LSA40PD being installed with the rest of the components?

Hi Jerry,

The NV-LSA40PD distribution hub is required to provide power to the amplifiers, so the rest of the system won't work without it.

Thx Pete. The single amplifier has a direct plug into the wall, therefore, there is available power in the unit. Also I believe the CAT 5/6 has POE that's why I am questioning if NV-LSA40pd is a must have in this set-up???

If you want to install the rest of the system, yes, you do need it;

however as you indicate you can indeed power the single amplifier directly from the wall, you just need to go around switching it off and on individually when required.
