AudioControl will be exhibiting new AV products at CEDIA Expo 2023, including new amplifiers and mini-chassis surround receivers.
The two new compact-chassis surround receivers enable integrators to deliver Dolby Atmos for home audio and DTS:X Pro processing in any zone. Both models are only 1U and feature AudioControl’s adaptation of a GaN-based high-power amplifier platform.
The Bijou3 offers three powered channels for L/C/R applications at 100-watts per channel plus a subwoofer output and two additional audio outputs for system flexibility. The CXR-5 AVR Mini offers five powered channels at 65-watts per channel plus a subwoofer output and two additional audio outputs for easy 5.1 or 7.1 system configurations.
Both models offer power and performance from a compact 1U form factor that can be housed in an AV rack or mounted behind the TV. Dirac Live room correction will be offered as an option. Integrators will be able to manage system configuration remotely.
“Clients are asking for a surround sound experience away from their main home theatre, and these new mini receivers have been engineered to deliver superb performance in media rooms, bedrooms, workout rooms, home offices, and more,” says Chris Kane, Vice President of Sales at AudioControl.
The AudioControl Director Model M6800 multi-zone amplifier is now available with a Dante option that supports digital audio networking capability. It is a high-power 16-channel amplifier with onboard DSP. Drivers are available for popular third-party control systems, including Crestron, Savant, RTI and Control 4. Last year, AudioControl began delivering the CM-Series 70-volt amplifiers with a Dante port option, making AudioControl’s products available for outdoor entertainment and other applications.
AudioControl will be exhibiting at CEDIA Expo 2023, booth 2509. CEDIA Expo 2023 takes place in Denver, CO from September 7-9.
