The award-winning high-end preamp/processor now supports DTS:X immersive audio.
Trinnov has announced the release of the DTS:X software update for its Altitude 32 preamplifier. In addition, the device also recently earned the Best Product 2016-2017 award in the High-End Home Theater category from the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA).
"Serious home cinema enthusiasts seeking the very best experience need look no further than Trinnov Audio’s Altitude 32. Able to output up to 32 discrete channels, this is no ordinary home cinema processor. Advanced, fully-customizable room optimization and equalization enables it to tailor its sound to the specific speaker layout and characteristics of a home theatre, and it will map any Dolby Atmos, DTS:X or Auro-3D native feed without breaking into a sweat. The outcome is a reference-class performance, with the Altitude 32 bringing astonishing clarity and definition, scale and presence, to movie soundtracks. Software-based architecture means it is ready for future updates, and despite its state-of- the-art feature set, operation is always easy with networked control from a PC, smartphone or tablet," said EISA's president Paul Miller.
The Altitude 32 preamplifier can support rendering for up to 32 discrete channels. Likewise, the device features Trinnov high-performance AD/DA converters and 64 bits floating point and 24 bits / 192 kHz native processing. Universal Spatial Accurate 3D Audio playback with Trinnov's patented 3D Loudspeaker Remapping, the exclusive Trinnov 3D measurement microphone, and 3D Speaker/Room calibration tools are included as well for seamless, immersive audio. DTS:X support is now available to all Altitude 32 owners who purchased the 3D decoders option through a software update. In addition, the unit supports Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D audio formats as well.
Trinnov's Altitude 32 is available now for around $37,000.
