AudioControl has announced three new AV receivers and two new AV processors at the 2019 CEDIA Expo, all scheduled for availability in Q4 2019.
The Maestro X9 and Maestro X7 support immersive surround formats such as 9.1.6 Dolby Atmos, Auro 3D, DTS:X, and IMAX Enhanced, with 16-channels of balanced and unbalanced output. Both models offer a full complement of inputs for connection to the latest audio/video components, including seven HDMI 2.0b inputs that fully support 4K UHD and HDR playback.
The new Maestro Series processors feature Dirac Live room correction with bass management to overcome acoustic anomalies in any space, ESS Sabre DACs, and offer app-based control, Google Cast, Airplay 2, aptX Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi streaming connectivity options as well as integrated web-based configuration.
The Maestro Series preamp/processors can be combined with AudioControl's newest G4 Series amplifiers, including the 7-channel Savoy G4, 5-channel Pantages G4, and versatile 4/3/2-channel fully bridgeable Avalon G4.
AudioControl's new Concert Series of immersive AV receivers is comprised of three models; the Concert XR-8, Concert XR-6, and Concert XR-4. All three models feature Dirac room correction, while the XR-6 and XR-8 add AURO 3D.
There are six channels of user-configurable outputs, ideal for high-pass channels, additional subwoofers or height channels- whatever the room requires to optimize the movie experience. They feature 16-channels of output, integrated web-based configuration, intuitive app-based control, Google Cast, Airplay 2, aptX Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi streaming connectivity.
