At CEDIA Expo 2023, AudioControl is at Booth 2509 launching two compact-chassis home theater receivers that will enable integrators to deliver Dolby Atmos and DTS:X Pro processing in any surround sound application. Both models feature an HDMI eARC input for easy connection to modern displays. Loudspeakers will be driven by AudioControl’s astonishing adaptation of a Gallium Nitride (GaN)-based high-power amplifier platform.
The compact 1U chassis of the AudioControl Bijou3 and CXR-5 lend themselves to easy installation in convenient locations such as behind the display, inside a cabinet, or in a small equipment rack, making them ideal for theater projects where space is limited. The eARC input on each model enables integrators to deliver the outstanding clarity of 192 kHz, 24-bit uncompressed audio to any zone, distinguishing their system designs by creating a superior entertainment experience. The CXR-5 provides three additional HDMI inputs as well.
The AudioControl Bijou3 offers three powered channels for L/C/R applications at 100-watts per channel plus a subwoofer output and two additional audio outputs for system flexibility. The CXR-5 offers five powered channels at 65-watts per channel plus a subwoofer output and two additional audio outputs for easy 5.1 or 7.1 system configurations. Both models provide exceptional performance from a compact 1U form factor that can be housed in an AV rack or mounted behind a TV.
The AudioControl Bijou3 and CXR-5 represent the ultimate small form factor solutions for multi-channel audio/video in any room. Dirac Live room correction will be offered as an option, and integrators will be able to effortlessly manage system configuration via IR or an ethernet connection, making both models ideal for CI professionals. Drivers are available for popular 3rd party smart home ecosystems including Crestron, Savant, RTI and Control 4.
