Acurus ACT 4 Expanded to 20 Channels Immersive Audio Processor will be Configurable for Maximum Layouts of 9.5.6 or 9.7.4By RS Staff Published: February 12, 2018 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 As of Q2 2018, Indy Audio Labs’ Acurus ACT 4 will natively decode Dolby Atmos 9.1.6 plus support up to four additional configurable channel outputs, for maximum layouts of 9.5.6 or 9.7.4, all with the attention to audio detail Acurus products are known for worldwide. Available in April 2018 as a hardware/firmware upgrade kit to existing ACT 4 units in the field, all new ACT 4s will be manufactured with the new expanded channel capability built in the company’s factory in Jeffersonville, IN. Additional web-control features and system upgrades to support the upcoming Acurus proprietary automatic room correction tool, ASPEQT (Acurus Speaker Parameter EQ Tool) are included in the new system, as well. ASPEQT is scheduled for release in Spring 2018 and will simplify the process of immersive processor system EQ and room tuning. The ACT 4 is compatible with Savant, Control4, Crestron, Elan, Kramer, and URC control platforms. The product also features a five-year manufacturer’s warranty. “Acurus continues to remain first to market with the latest immersive cinema processor technology,” said Indy Audio Labs co-founder and CTO, Ted Moore. “We were the first sub-$10k wholly-designed American immersive audio processor, first with both 7.3.6 Dolby Atmos and 7.1.4 DTS:X native decoding, first with full support of HDMI 2.0b with HDCP 2.2, and now first to expand into the 20-channel realm with 15.1 Dolby Atmos native decoding plus four extra configurable channels. Couple this layout expansion with the ACT 4’s superb implementation of the latest Dolby and DTS upmixers and you have a listening experience that’s as phenomenal as it is flexible. You just won’t find any other immersive processor with the features, capabilities, and installer-friendly focus that the ACT 4 has to offer.” Integrators and resellers interested in learning more about the ACT 4 may contact [email protected].
