Crestron adds to residential audio solutions product range

Crestron Electronics has added two new residential audio products to its portfolio, the Ultimate In-Wall Subwoofer, developed in partnership with Origin Acoustics, and the DM NAX 4-Zone Streaming Pre-Amplifier for high-performance Audio-over-IP (AoIP).

The result of a partnership with Origin Acoustics, the new Ultimate In-Wall Subwoofer is designed to be paired with Crestron speakers from the Ultimate or Reference lines to help create an immersive sound experience with deep, gratifying bass for demanding multiroom audio applications or home cinemas.

Following suit with the other products in this line up, the Ultimate In-Wall Subwoofer is made with high-quality components as well as paintable grilles to match any aesthetic.

An easy-to-use in-wall dogleg mounting system streamlines the installation of the subwoofer, reducing interference with other elements present in the wall space.

The Ultimate Subwoofer pairs natively with DM NAX AoIP technology and the Creston Home ecosystem.

The latest addition to the DM NAX line is the DM NAX 4-Zone Streaming Pre-Amplifier for Audio-over-IP, Crestron’s first pre-amplifier. It is slimmer in form (1RU) but similar in function to the DM NAX Amplifier and natively integrates with Crestron Home and Dante audio networking as well as being interoperable with AES67.

Using hardwired connections, it requires no custom network architecture or hardware, meaning it can be connected easily to existing amplifiers in both retrofit and new build projects.

Its interoperability and simple design allows integrators to use DM NAX to specify an entire house’s worth of audio systems with a single device. Users can have complete control of the audio environment, allowing them to toggle between TV audio, streaming music, podcasts, alarms, doorbells, and even paging and intercom usage to any speaker in the house thanks to the DM NAX AoIP’s flexibility, scalability and interoperability.

The Ultimate Subwoofer will start shipping from 23 March, while the DM NAX 4-Zone Streaming Pre-Amplifier is available now to pre-order.
