Trinnov Altitude 16 AV Processor HDMI 2.1

VAT included

We are fully training in Trinnov audio setup and calibration.

We have adopted RP22 standards for home cinema design and utilise Trinnov processing for our high end cinema installs.

We are happy to provide Trinnov processing along with amplification and installation/configuration. Please contact us on 01757 826111 to discuss more.

Trinnov Altitude 16 Sixteen Channel Pre Amplifier, following on from the Altitude32 processor, hosts Trinnov’s awards-winning Speaker and Room Optimiser technology, immersive audio capacities, active crossovers and unmatched bass management flexibility to a new, slightly smaller form factor with tremendous value.

Immersive Audio

The AV pre amplifier incorporates immersive audio decoders from Dolby Atmos (16 discretely-rendered channels) to Auro-3D (supports Auro’s full 13.1 layout) and DTS:X (all configurations of its 11.1 format) for a more engaging sound reproduction.

Roon Ready

Roon is a music server system designed to reconnect you with music. It collects your music from all your computers, NAS drives and even streaming services like TIDAL, bringing them together in an interface that invites musical exploration.

With biographies, high-resolution photos, lyrics, reviews, credits and concert dates, Roon allows users to discover the connections between the artists, composers, performers, producers and composers who created the music they love most and helping them to discover new music.

Speaker/Room Optimiser

Trinnov’s exclusive Speaker/Room Optimiser offers a calibration wizard for easier initial setup and calibration. It can process high-resolution 24/96 audio and is ready for audio over IP. Altitude16 features four-way active crossovers and unlimited subwoofers.

Highest Spatial Res

Only Trinnov has the capability of rendering Atmos-encoded audio objects to more than 11.1 channels. The addition of Wide and Top Middle channels takes 9.1.6 to an entirely different level of immersion and imaging specificity than can be achieved with current DSP chips, all of which max out at either 7.1.4 or 9.1.2.

Optimiser Technology

The Optimiser loudspeaker and room optimisation technology at the heart of Trinnov’s products; for professional studios, movie theatres, high-end Hi-Fi and home theatres, takes a modern approach to acoustic measurements, analysis and processing. Dedicated to “Innovation in 3D Audio”.

Trinnov discovered long ago that complex 3D sound fields do not blend together seamlessly unless the sound heard from all of the speakers is extremely well-matched in both the amplitude and time domains. The Optimiser was developed to achieve this goal with any combination of quality loudspeakers and has become recognised as the most advanced and powerful technology of its kind.
