Savant has introduced the Savant Pro Audio 4, its first scalable, wired, all-in-one music solution exclusively for Savant Pro Integrators. Savant Pro Audio 4 features built-in streaming, distribution, and amplification for complete audio immersion. With a 50-watt amplifier, integrated audio processing, and four zones of high-quality audio that sync automatically between rooms, users can play eight channels of immersive fidelity straight from the Savant Pro App or Pro Remote. The Pro Audio 4 includes a single stream of Savant Music and supports additional streaming through the Savant Smart Host to personalize music in individual rooms.
Offering flexibility in deployment, up to three Pro Audio 4 units can be interconnected, expanding the range from four zones to 12, for a synchronized, whole-home audio experience. Additionally, multiple installation options make it well suited either new construction or retrofit.
“Delivering a high-fidelity entertainment experience has always been a hallmark of the Savant brand,” said William Lynch, CEO of Savant. “We set a new standard in entertainment, control, and automation with the recently introduced Savant Pro Remote, and the Pro Audio 4 builds on that by giving our integrators an incredible music experience for clients.”
With newly announced software updates, Savant customers can create and schedule personalized scenes with Sonos for the first time. Unique to Savant, this feature gives homeowners the ability to create scenes such as “Relax,” which can turn on a favorite Sonos playlist and dim the lights with a tap when arriving home after work, or be activated automatically at their preferred time of day. New features also include whole-home music distribution from the Savant Pro Remote for convenient control of music throughout the house from one interface, as well as quicker access to volume controls, zone filtering, and more.
“Our Integrators have been asking for these new features,” Lynch said. “At Savant, we’re constantly working to ensure our integrators have the tools they need to deploy best-in-class systems. By releasing regular software updates, our customers can be confident that they’ll always have the best home automation experience possible.”
Savant Pro 8.1 is scheduled to be released in the coming month, while the Pro Audio 4 is slated for release later in 2016. Pro Audio 4 will be offered for $2,500 MSRP, exclusively through certified Savant Integrators with streaming services powered by Autonomic MirageOS service fees may apply.
