AUDIO DESIGN ASSOCIATES INTRODUCES OMEGA CB SYSTEM, CAPABLE OF ROUTING 32 HIGH DEFINITION VIDEO AND 64 DIGITAL AUDIO SOURCES
The Most Advanced, Best Sounding, Sophisticated and Expensive Multi-room System In The World
Denver, CO - September 11, 2006 - At this year's CEDIA Expo, Audio Design Associates (ADA) -- the recognized brand of excellence in high-end custom installed electronics - announced the introduction of the industry's most vast audio / video distribution system, called the Omega CB System.
The Omega CB is a lavish estate-targeted system, capable of routing 32 high-definition video sources and 64 digital-audio sources to up to 106 independent zones. According to ADA COO and VP Richard Stoerger, the MSRP of this 16-zone system would typically be more than $100,000, just for the AV mainframe.
Stoerger says, "Omega CB's name is derived from CB, which stands for Custom Built, and System Omega, ADA's award winning multi-room system which for over ten-years had graced the covers of many high-end audio / video enthusiast and design magazines. Omega CB takes the original System Omega's building block approach (each zone requires a 2-rack-space preamp or integrated amp) but jumps way beyond stereo into the world of multi-channel audio."
"The Omega CB exceeds the capabilities of what had been ADA's most robust system to date, the Suite 16, that's capabilities boasted being able to route up to 16 audio or video sources to 16 zones, with expansion capability to 96 zones. But now, the number of inputs is the key, not necessarily the number of zones," says Stoerger.
According to Stoerger, the Omega CB came about specifically in response to those dealers that require more than 16 sources. Examples of today's required sources could include a music server, multiple satellite TV and cable boxes, multiple satellite radio tuners, multiple networked DVRs and localized iPods, etc., all independently controllable from each zone. The vast number of inputs also enables installers to add new sources at a later date.
Each zone is capable of receiving a 7.1-channel surround signal, turning each zone into a home theater for video viewing or into a concert hall for listening to multi-channel music. Multi-channel music can include Dolby, DTS, THX Ultra2 and up-conversion of two-channel CDs to multi-channel sound.
Both stereo speaker pairs or full 7.1 surround sound speaker arrays can wire to the mainframe via simple speaker wire where they connect to centrally located Omega CB Zone Controllers. Alternately, audio and video content is shipped over CAT-5 cable to remote rooms from the central A/V stack, where a local Omega CB Zone Controller (3.5-inch by 19-inch) can be installed per individual zone.
Stoerger added, "Suffice it to say, that the Omega CB is the most advanced, best sounding, and most sophisticated multi-room system in the world. It is also the most expensive."
The Omega CB System is ideally matched with ADA's iHome Multi-Center, Tune Suite, & iBase products.
MSRP: Typically +$100,000 for 16 zones. Units are shipping now.
