AudioControl Adds DTS:X and DTS Neural Surround capability to their Home Theater Receivers and Flagship Preamp/Processor

December 13 2016, 02:50
AudioControl has announced the availability of DTS:X and DTS Neural Surround for their Concert AVR-7 and AVR-9 home theater receivers as well as their Maestro M9 theater processor. According to the Seattle, WA, -based company, these multi-dimensional immersive formats enhance performance for consumers in this class-leading home theater lineup and can be added to models already in the field via a simple firmware update.

DTS:X is an immersive surround format that delivers an exceptionally lifelike sense of dimensionality and accomplishes this without dictating any specific speaker layout. DTS:X enables integrators to deliver a visceral cinematic experience to their clients using loudspeaker locations that suit décor. AudioControl’s advanced auto-calibration and object-based surround processor will determine proper levels and placement for dialogue and sound effects, and integrators can bring added value by fine-tuning critical parameters for the finest entertainment experience possible. DTS Neural Surround up-converts conventional stereo sources such as streaming content, TV broadcasts gaming soundtracks and others into captivating 5.1 or 7.1 surround as well as a 7.1.4 immersive format.
AudioControl has made both DTS formats available via the mode selection menu on their home theater receivers and flagship M9 processor — all of which are also now available in a recently unveiled sleek Expresso Black brushed aluminum finish. The new solutions will be demonstrated at CES 2017, in the Venetian Hotel, Suite 29-103.
