TECHNOLOGY

Dolby Atmos® for the home represents every sound in the original cinema mix as an audio object. Extensions to the Dolby Audio CODECs, along with an advanced scalable algorithm, allow Dolby Atmos to be delivered via Blu-ray Disc and streaming media. AudioControl’s Concert Maestro M9 adapts the cinema experience to your home theatre using up to 12 channels (power amplification is required), recreating the original artistic concept.
Creating a life like audio experience in a cinema or at home has always presented a challenge. DTS:X makes sound move around you like it would in real life – without requiring specific speakers or custom configurations. Moviemakers can now immerse you deeper in the experience than ever before. The Concert Maestro M9 supports DTS:X and will bring the mix designed for movie theatres into your home.
The Concert Maestro M9 uses a built in proprietary automatic loudspeaker setup function from Dirac Research. Using a PC/MAC based application, Dirac Live® determines the essential speaker settings for all the speakers in your system. It also calculates room equalisation (Room EQ) filter values to remove some of the worst effects of resonant frequencies in the listening room. The result is improved staging, better clarity and intelligibility in music and vocals and deeper, tighter bass without resonance.
 
The Concert Maestro M9 is ready for the next generation of digital media entertainment. The Maestro M9 supports both HDMI 2.0 for 4K 50/60 Hz playback and HDCP 2.2 copy protection. Current standard definition and 1080p content benefit from beautiful upscaling to 4k Ultra HD. Featuring 7 HDMI inputs and 3 HDMI outputs, the Maestro M9 supports multiple displays in zone 1 and full HD video and audio for the second zone.

POWER AMPLIFIER

Dependable power is a key component in a performance home theatre.  The power needs to be clean, clear, and reliable. AudioControl amplifiers run cool, delivering authoritative power and pristine sonic performances while providing bulletproof reliability to last, quite literally, a lifetime. AudioControl amplifiers are built on a unique Class H topology, which provides authoritative power and pristine sonics without generating the excess heat inherent to other designs.  Class H topology monitors the input levels, maximising power efficiency through the use of multiple voltage rails.  This reduces the amount of power converted into useless heat; heat that puts excess strain on an amplifier. All AudioControl amplifiers are designed and assembled at our factories in the Pacific Northwest offering an unsurpassed level of reliability. Performance and durability are characteristics that customers come to expect from AudioControl theatre amplifiers.

Designed as a matching companion to AudioControl’s new Maestro M9 theatre pre-amp processor, the Savoy G3 changes the experience in the home for all movie lovers. The Class-H design topology of the Savoy G3 provides increased efficiency and bullet-proof reliability, while reducing heat and unnecessary power dissipation.

In addition to pristine audio performance, the Savoy G3 sports desirable user features like balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA inputs, Remote Power Control triggers and audiophile grade, five-way binding posts to guarantee the optimum connection of speaker level signals.
