AudioControl Adds Nuvo® Architectural Loudspeakers to Sound Partners Program™

AudioControl’s tailored DSP speaker profiles give integrators the vital tools to optimize system performance while minimizing the time required to fine-tune each zone

Seattle, WA, December 20th, 2016 - AudioControl (audiocontrol.com), makers of innovative high-performance audio solutions for the residential, commercial and automotive markets has announced that Nuvo has been added to their Sound Partners Program (SPP). The AudioControl SPP was established as a cooperative initiative with industry-leading architectural speaker manufacturers in order to implement optimized performance profiles as defined by each brand's engineers. These profiles, when stored in the DSP onboard the AudioControl Director™ M-Series of high-performance 8 and 16-channel amplifiers, creates the ultimate whole-house entertainment/commercial audio platform for professional integrators.


DSP profiles for Nuvo's in-ceiling and in-wall loudspeakers—the Series Two, Series Four and Series Six models have all become available for upload into the AudioControl Director M-Series amplifiers. "We see this cooperative program as an opportunity, enabling integrators to take advantage of Nuvo's loudspeaker designs by providing acoustic optimization for each zone," explained Fritz Werder, VP & General Manager, Nuvo & On-Q. "We are excited to work with AudioControl as part of the SPP initiative."

"We welcome Nuvo and their array of architectural loudspeakers to our Sound Partners Program," said AudioControl CEO Alex Camara. "The SPP provides professional integrators with the tools they need to differentiate themselves in a competitive market while delivering superb sound quality to their clients. The high-performance and fine-tuning capabilities of the Director M-Series amplifiers coupled with Nuvo speakers will provide an excellent entertainment experience."

AudioControl Director M-Series Amplifiers
The matrixing capabilities of the Director M-Series allow any of eight analog or two digital inputs to be routed to any zone output. The 2U M-Series M6400 and M6800 includes two digital SPDIF inputs plus two SPDIF outputs that are tied to the matrix so that any one of the input sources can be routed through the digital outputs. These digital outputs can then be connected to the digital inputs on additional M-Series amplifiers, enabling integrators to use multiple amplifiers and assign input signal routing as needed. The Director M-Series is expanding with the addition of two new models including a 1U, 8-channel solution called the M4800 in the coming weeks. All models are capable of 100 watts per channel at 8 Ohms, 200 watts at 4 Ohms and 400 watts bridged. M-Series amplifiers offer powerful DSP-based functionality along with AudioControl's legendary sound quality, and can be used either as a standalone matrix-amplifier or as part of a 3rd party control system from companies including Crestron, Savant and Control 4.
