New immersive processor unveiled8 February 2017
The Super AVR is being revealed to the European market by StormAudio at ISE 2017. The I.ISP 3D.16.12 is a 16-channel integrated amplifier/immersive audio AV processor compatible with Auro-3D, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and UHD 4K video. The unit outputs 12 channels at 200W each and is expandable to 16 channels by way of optional external amplifiers or powered subwoofers.
The I.ISP 3D.16.12 is said to incorporate much of the technology advancement and feature sets found in the company’s ISP 3D.32 ELITE | Reference Edition processor.
Built into the I.ISP 3D.16.12 integrated amp/processor is StormAudio’s proprietary immersive audio processing (ISP), StormOptimizer room calibration and StormRemote web-based monitoring tools.
The I.ISP 3D.16.12 is equipped with eight HDMI inputs and two outputs with UHD 4K and HDCP2.2 and HDMI2.0 support. For private headphone listening, the unit incorporates SpherAudio, a binaural technology designed to deliver an immersive sound experience from native or virtualised sources.
“StormAudio’s mission is to provide unprecedented sound and service for both the dealer and end-user,” said StormAudio senior vice president Yves Trélohan. “Our new I.ISP 3D.16.12 is no exception. It is the perfect solution for today’s home cinemas where use of separate preamp/processors and amps are not ideal due to either budget or space limitations.
From its advanced feature sets and performance, to luxurious fit and finish, the I.ISP 3D.16.12 is a new breed of integrated immersive sound AV processor that is already setting the standard for what the heart of the immersive home cinema should be.”
