Audiophile-grade Triad streaming amplifier now available from Snap One

Snap One has introduced its audiophile-grade Triad SA1 Streaming Amplifier, with immediate availability.

Building on the Triad One, the new Ryff-enabled streaming amplifier is cased in a metal chassis with two 200w power delivery, HDMI ARC/eARC capability, and advanced integration support for Control4 and MoIP systems. It also has presets for Triad and Episode speakers as well as a 6-band parametric EQ and improved connector options and hardware.

The new SA1 Streaming Amplifier gives integrators improved tools to deliver high-quality wireless audio throughout homes to support multi-zone systems, media room audio and listening room solutions. The addition of ARC/eARC capability allows audio quality for TV and movies to be optimised to the maximum available quality for any audio format, including Dolby Atmos, Dolby DTS:X and a variety of high definition and lossless formats.

Compared to the Triad One, SA1 features expanded adjustability and controls thanks to its DSP, which includes multi-channel downmixing, a 6-band parametric EQ for room tuning, simplified speaker set up and quality optimisation with presets for Triad and Episode speakers, a 3-band parametric EQ with crossover for subwoofers, zone controls, a lip sync delay function and high-quality toslink connections. Lasting connections can be ensured thanks to the use of 4-way binding posts instead of phoenix connectors.

Ease of use has also improved with the addition of physical buttons for volume and play/pause control on the front of the unit.

The Triad SA1 is also fully compatible with the OvrC remote systems management solution, giving integrators real-time insight into the status and performance of the device to aid in troubleshooting. As a Ryff-based device, the amplifier natively integrates with Control4 systems, making it simple to add new zones to existing clients’ systems.

Each SA1 supports a single zone of 2-channel audio with up to 400 total watts of power, plus a subwoofer line output and two IR outputs that afford control of local devices such as TVs.

Snap One Partners can order the Triad SA1 Streaming Amplifier now in black or white. Following its launch, Airplay 2 capability will become available.
