Home theater processors and amplifiers manufacturer AudioControl announced the launch of a new line of receivers: the 7.1.4 Concert AVR-7 and Concert AVR-9. Both receivers feature Dolby ATMOS technology, 4K support, HDMI 2.0a, HDCP 2.2, and DIRAC Live for AudioControl—a room calibration system that is launching for all AudioControl products alongside the launch of these new receivers.
The AVR-7 and AVR-9 receivers will be on display at AudioControl’s booth (#4628) at the 2015 CEDIA Expo in Dallas next week.
Here are some of the design specs, as explained by AudioControl in a statement:
Behind the striking contemporary visual design, the Concert AVR-9 and AVR-7 benefit from the high-end audio performance that AudioControl is renowned for. The AVR-9's powerful high-current 7 x 200 watts per channel theater amplifier creates a truly incredible audio platform that turns watching a movie in your living room, media space or theater into a movie lover's 'nirvana'. The Concert AVR-7 also benefits from the same high performing audio and video platform as the Concert AVR-9, powering its seven-channel amplifier at 100 watts per channel into 8 ohms. Both the AVR-7 and AVR-9 benefit from four high-performance Dolby ATMOS pre-amp outputs. Users can drive the Dolby ATMOS channels using the high-power amplification contained inside the Concert AVR's and also add additional power utilizing AudioControl's high-power 2-channel Bijou 600 or Rialto 600 amplifiers as the perfect Dolby ATMOS amplifier.
The AVR-7 and AVR-9 will begin shipping during the fourth quarter of 205 directly from AudioControl Seattle manufacturing facility.
