Savant Music 2.0 also features redesigned app control screens, making it easier than ever for users to navigate. Also brand new, a convenient equalizer screen makes it a snap to fine-tune the sound on supported devices. Users will also appreciate access to their favorite streaming services such as Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, Tidal, and more, as well PLEX support for locally stored music.
Artison Sound Surface Invisible Speakers
Designed to be completely hidden behind the wall, Artison engineers have developed a technology that sounds rich and detailed, yet requires less amplifier power than traditional speakers. Using a soundboard much like a musical instrument does, the Artison Sound Surface speakers use resonances to generate soundwaves originating from multiple locations on the board, generating a broad frequency range with very small fluctuations in amplitude. This advanced design delivers superior sound to conventional solutions while leaving the décor unimpeded. Artison Sound Surface speakers are designed to be sheet rock mudded into the wall, allowing them to be textured for a seamless final install and invisible audio. The fully closed back design offers isolation from other spaces and the single-piece body is designed for simple installation into both pre-construction and retrofit options. Artison Sound Surface speakers can be installed outdoors under material like stucco or beneath decorative wallpaper. Available in 40 or 80 watt versions.
Savant is providing integrators with access to AudioControl’s award-winning Director® D-Series DSP-enabled amplifiers, models D2800 and D4600 through the Savant store. AudioControl Director D-Series amps offer DSP profiles for a variety of speaker brands including Artison, a space-saving 1U form factor (D2800) and a robust 100-watts @8-ohms/200-watts @4-ohms per channel. Integrators can easily configure graphic and parametric equalization, crossover settings, volume control, zone grouping, network monitoring and more all via IP. Director D-Series amplifiers also feature AudioControl LightDrive Anti-Clipping Speaker Protection and Digital Signal Sense.
