AUDIO DESIGN ASSOCIATES INTRODUCES CINEMA SUITE: AN 8-ZONE HOME THEATER PRE-AMPLIFIER / CONTROLLER
Las Vegas, NV – January 8, 2007 - At this year’s ICES, Audio Design Associates (ADA) -- the recognized brand of excellence in high-end custom installed electronics -- debuted their new Cinema Suite 8-zone pre-amplifier / controller.
The Cinema Suite is a high-end home theater preamplifier that is similar in operation to the company’s Suite 7.1 surround sound preamp and in connectivity to the company’s Cinema Rhapsody Mach III pre-amplifier. Located on Cinema Suite’s front panel is a 4-inch color TFT touch screen that permits control of both the home theater and 8-stereo zones.
ADA’s CEO and Chief Design Engineer Albert G. Langella says, “While so many good home theater controllers now feature perhaps an extra zone or two -- that make for a so-so multi-room system -- the design of the Cinema Suite far surpasses them. In addition to being a state-of-the-art surround processor, we included an 8-zone multi-room preamplifier to route up to 8 audio sources, for the very best sound quality available anywhere. Anyone looking for a single preamp, that combines whole home and theater in one, need look no farther than our Cinema Suite.”
The Cinema Suite features the latest in ADA's digital signal processing, providing uncolored and true sound from both digital and analog components. The “home theater” section of the unit includes ADA trademark features such as “Double-Default Mode Auto-Detection” and numerous default presets that make listening to movies, TV and music, perfect every time.
Cinema Suite’s “multi-room” aspect incorporates features found only in ADA’s “luxury” suite of multi-room systems including bass, midrange and treble tones controls, stereo enhancement and active loudness contour. Each room has its own turn-on acoustical preset that delivers the perfect sound level every time the room is turned on.
ADA COO and VP Richard Stoerger says, “All of these acoustical settings combine to provide the best possible sound at even the most modest of volume levels. While perfectly capable of playing loud enough to “rock the house,” Cinema Suite is specifically engineered to deliver incredible bass at background sound levels.”
Cinema Suite is ideally matched with ADA multi-channel power amplifiers such as the PTM-8150 (8-channel 7.1 power amplifier) for the home theater zone and the PTM-1645 (8-zone, 16-channel power amplifier) for the other 8-zones.
