Offering a level of sound quality that is far above competing pre-processors, the AV950 is an audiophile product by any measure. Equally at home with high resolution surround sound or two-channel music, the AV950 in combination with the P777 power amplifier delivers stunning realism with everything from heavy-weight blockbusters to your favourite concert video.
The AV950’s natural habitat is within high performance cinema installations. It delivers a level of sonic detail and emotional connection that quickly takes listeners to the very heart of the movie or music.
Both video and audio stages are designed to embrace both current and upcoming technologies. 4K “Ultra HD” and 3D video capability are built in, while both standard and high definition sources can be scaled to any resolution where required.
An internal tuner provides a fully integrated FM / DAB / DAB+ (in appropriate markets) radio solution. Worldwide access to radio stations is provided through the network connection, which also interfaces to uPnP audio servers. The USB port supports memory devices as well as digital audio from your iPod®/iPhone®/iPad®.
Control of the AV950 is possible via Ethernet, enabling it to be fully integrated with whole house control systems. RS232, 12V triggers and standard IR control are also included.
Finally, a 6V power output is provided to supply the versatile range of rSeries accessories such as the rBlink, adding the convenience of high-quality aptX® Bluetooth® to your system.
The AV950 has been designed to give the finest sound in home cinema.
