We shaped the Altitude32 to ensure undisputed leadership in 3D sound, leaving nothing to chance: high channel count, huge processing capabilities to meet the highest technical requirements, and exclusive, patented technologies to unleash the full potential of immersive sound, regardless of formats and speaker layouts.
This is the benchmark that all other AV processors are measured against, It is the definitive reference to high-end home theatre processors.

The constant evolution of the HDMI standard creates many challenges for manufacturers and integrators. Trinnov’s proprietary software platform not only lets you monitor and analyze all HDMI streams directly from your processor but also offers unique solutions to get beyond HDMI incompatibility issues.
The Altitude32comes with our own set-up software that facilitates the installation procedures for integrators. It guides them through a step-by-step process that defines how to best use available inputs and output channels as well as the desired speaker layouts. This new “wizard” greatly simplifies the initial set up procedure and calibration process.
The standard version of the Altitude32 natively decodes Dolby Digital Plus®, Dolby TrueHD®, DTS Digital Surround® and DTS-HD Master Audio® With the 3D Audio optional package, you can experience a new world of immersive sound with the latest technologies by Dolby Laboratories®, DTS Inc®, and Auro Technologies®.
Thanks to the 3D measurement capabilities of our microphone, each speaker’s actual placement can precisely be localized in the room regarding distance, azimuth, and elevation. Knowing the intended placement of various sounds within the soundtrack (since we decoded it), we can then “remap” the sound objects from the theory of the soundtrack to the reality of your particular room, using the closest two or three speakers to create a phantom image of the sound where it should be. While 2D remapping deals mainly with the horizontal plane, 3D remapping will manage both azimuths and elevations.
Trinnov provides the most sophisticated solution on the market when it comes to managing low frequencies. With our intermediate bass management system you can, of course, specify how one or more subwoofers will reproduce the lower part of the spectrum for each channel. But it goes further: it even allows you to bass manage the low frequencies of a small speaker to the closest, more-capable speaker. It gives you complete control over crossover frequencies, filter type, slope, and even where the redirected bass will be reproduced.
The AV processor Altitude32 from the French manufacturer Trinnov is the ultimate machine to bring professional standards of fidelity to home theaters. Trinnov’s Optimizer technology works perfectly and makes it possible to handle even the most complex systems. Our new reference.

Trinnov has been collaborating for years with some of the most respected brands and integrators in the field, allowing us to work on some of the most ambitious home cinema projects of the past ten years. With the publication of our own recommended speaker positions guide, we are offering our expertise to all integrators, in addition, to our recurrent CEDIA Lectures.
Besides exceptional audio performances, the Altitude32 is the only processor able to handle immersive formats’ incompatible speaker positions. The level of details of its audio calibration is unequaled. But most of all, it is future-proof. We don’t know yet if we can call it « a lifetime processor, » but it should most certainly accompany its happy owner through cinematic and musical adventures for a very long time.”

TCD is an online design tool that allows its users to create technically impeccable cinema designs, support documents, and aesthetic renders, within minutes.TCD software supports the complete line of our High-End products, letting you integrate the Altitude in the most complex speaker layouts in a matter of minutes.
At the heart of this new generation of processor is a new approach to Digital Signal Processing, based on a revolutionary hardware architecture, highly scalable and easy to upgrade. Rather than using multiple DSP implemented in a complex and rigid architecture, Trinnov Audio has developed a multi-purpose processing platform, based on a single multi-core Intel processor to provide unrivaled processing capacities.
More importantly, Trinnov is not dependent on chipsets produced for the mass-market and therefore free to implement new technologies without technical limitations. For Dolby Atmos®, we collaborated with Dolby laboratories on our own implementation of the decoder to go beyond the limitation of 16 Dolby Atmos® channels. To achieve this, other manufacturers using off-the-shelf Atmos-ready component would deliver extra matrixed channels while the Altitude32 renders the native material.
The Altitude32 is a scalable easy-to-upgrade solution. The entry model supports the latest HD Audio and Video formats while the highest model with 3D audio decoding option decodes and delivers up to 32 discrete channels of immersive audio content at an unprecedented level of quality, for whole new listening experience, leaving competition far behind.
The Altitude is fully compatible with Roon
