  • PDF

Control4 announces an extensive line of Triad-branded high-resolution audio products-- including the Triad AMS-24 and AMS-8 Audio Matrix Switches, Triad 8-Zone Power Amplifier, and Triad One Streaming Amplifier.

Control4 Triead “Our new Triad multi-room audio products are designed to deliver high-resolution audio in every corner of the home, from the source to the listener’s ears,” Control4 says.  “Beautiful sound, elegant design, and high-performance are the core tenets inspiring the development of the new Triad multi-room audio lineup. Coupled with Triad’s comprehensive range of build-to-order premium speakers for home theaters, family rooms, whole-home or multi-room audio, and outdoor environments, the Triad product family is a very strong go-to high-fidelity audio solution for our worldwide dealers and end-customers.”

The Triad AMS-24 and AMS-8 audio matrix switches enable customers to enjoy music from 8 to 96 separate zones anywhere in the home. They are equipped with digital coax, optical and analog inputs to handle a broad range of source devices, and deliver a signal-to-noise ratio of -105dB to maintain sound quality throughout. Each output is adjustable with independent gain, bass, treble, 10-band parametric equaliser, loudness and mono-summing controls, while a compact design uses just 1 RU and 2RU for the AMS-8 and AMS-24 respectively.

Customers can pair the audio matrix switches with the Triad 8-Zone power amplifier (AMP-8) for flexible and scalable amplification over any size installation. It delivers 8 zones of high-resolution amplification with -109dB signal-to-noise ratio and 0.003% total harmonic distortion, together with 100W per channel from 8 zones. Installers can also bridge it to 200W per channel, and the chassis fits in just 1 RU of space.

The final Triad product announced is the One-- a single-zone, high-resolution, wired and wireless streaming amplifier. Customers simply plug in power and connect it to a wired or wireless network before connection to the Control4 system for playback of local files or streaming services without need to pull speaker wire back to a central location. It supports high-resolution playback up to 192kHz/24-bit, and includes a 10-band parametric equaliser, together with 100W of power per channel and -107dB signal-to-noise level.

It features both digital and analog audio inputs to distribute and synchronise local audio sources, be it TV audio, turtables or media players, over IP network throughout a larger audio system. A line-level subwoofer output provides deep bass when connected to a powered subwoofer, and it can be installed horizontally or vertically on a bookshelf, mounted behind a TV or in a rack.

Control4 also adds two music services with native integration to EA controllers, namely iHeartRadio and Spotify. These services join the currently available Deezer, Napster, Pandora, Tidal and TuneIn, and can be accessed through any EA series controller without additional media players.

The above mentioned Triad audio solutions are available now globally.
