Choices for optimum performance

Carefully selected components ensures superb quality sound. The dedicated choke coil features powerful bass while filtering unwanted frequencies, for controlled and dynamic audio reproduction. Audiophile-grade capacitors deliver effortless power for clearness and tight bass, while multi-layer polymer capacitors help ensure low overall harmonic distortion and natural sound character.

Sound Customisation

The high grade 192 kHz / 24 bit DSP offers pristine sound processing and time alignment - down to a remarkable 1 cm for each of the 6 addressable channels (4 speakers + 2 subwoofers via pre-out). A 14-band EQ lets you adjust the overall sound to your music or taste, and each of the 6 channels features independent 8-band parametric EQ to get optimum performance across different speaker configurations. Together with the 3-zone crossover, you can dial in the perfect match of front, rear and subwoofers.
