Wyrestorm All-In-One AMP-001-010 HDBaseT Class D Digital Audio Amplifier is Now Shipping

The new AMP-001-010 combines HDBaseT extension, HDMI Receiving, Control, and D Class amplification into an ultimate all-in-one digital amplifier solution for residential and commercial installations, large and small.

Denver, CO - September 3, 2013 - CEDIA EXPO - Booth 631 - Wyrestorm, a global manufacturer that specializes in the design and development of innovative HD distribution products, is now shipping the world's first HDBaseT™ (HDBT) D Class Digital Audio Amplifier, the AMP-001-010. The feature-rich amplifier is the first of its kind to combine the benefits of HDMI, HDBT, and local amplification, with unique engineering and integration features to provide custom electronic system integrators with the ultimate in performance and installation flexibility for residential and commercial applications.


The truly unique, patent pending design of the AMP-001-010 makes it equally compelling as a simple-to-install value-added extender solution for single-source/single-display systems, or as a building block for larger extended systems of more than 50 displays when combined with Wyrestorm Pro Plus matrices and extenders as part of the total end-to-end distribution and control solution.

"Our AMP is the world's first all-in-one HDBaseT extender and digital amplification solution to offer integrators the utmost in flexibility for any and all distributed A/V installations. Only Wyrestorm's AMP-001-010 successfully combines, simplifies, and improves the relationship between HDMI and HDBT and stereo audio. By combining the benefits of HDBT with some creative, proprietary engineering in the AMP-001-010, we are able to deliver the ultimate one-box solution for our customers. Virtually no system that requires total HD audio and video distribution -no matter how large or small-is outside its reach," said Wyrestorm CEO Derek Hulbert.

The AMP-001-010 digital amplifier was engineered to save integrators time and money by eliminating the need for additional A/V receivers, distribution amps, numerous gadgets and converters. It is the only product that can extract stereo audio direct from the digital audio within the HDBT signal and amplify it locally, removing the need to mix digital and analogue audio formats, add needless multi-room amplifiers, and eliminating any costs associated with various breakout boxes, converters and power supplies.

For basic, single-source installations, full HD audio/video and control can be routed to the AMP-001-010 from a cable box, Blu-ray player, media server, etc., by way of a simple HDBT transmitter (TX-70-PP), and out to the display via the amplifier's built-in HDMI output. Connect stereo speakers and a subwoofer directly to the device, and you have a complete entertainment system, with fully integrated IR or RS-232 control, without the need for additional devices. Furthermore, the ARC (Audio Return Channel) capabilities of the AMP-001-010 give you full access to audio from the integrated smart TV features of the display, including YouTube and other streaming audio/video services. You can even add audio from an additional source, like a personal media player or smartphone, via the AMP-001-010's 3.5mm auxiliary audio jack.

For larger systems, the AMP-001-010's HDBaseT output capabilities give installers the ability to add amplifiers at 70-meter intervals, enabling them to add additional displays, each with access to and capable of delivering full HD quality, centralized audio and video, and 2.1-channel speaker setup, along with the way. Up to seven AMP's can be added to one network to cover areas over 1500 feet and achieve full HD video, fully amplified 2.1-channel audio and IR/RS-232 control, for the utmost in installation flexibility.

With a compact size (202mm x 178mm x 31mm) and HDBaseT capabilities, the cool running AMP-001-010 can be easily hidden, either mounted discretely near the display, secreted away in a ceiling void while still providing convenient, fully uncompressed HD signal distribution via one Cat5e/6.

The AMP-001-010 is now shipping. It is fully compatible with Wyrestorm's new EX-1UTP-IR-70/100 extenders and HDBaseT matrices. MSRP is $799.00 and includes a 3 year warranty. Wyrestorm products are available through a growing network of authorized dealers and distributors worldwide.
