Thanks to Altitude32’s unique hardware conception, Trinnov’s engineering has been able to find a solution to output even more discrete channels from the already state-of-the-art Altitude32, expanding the count to 48 real discrete channels by using its 32 analog outputs and its 16 AES outputs simultaneously.
It will allow – for the first time – users to experience the full Home Atmos experience with its 24.1.10 layout, while still allowing more possibilities in term of bass management or multi-amping and remapping. However, that solution requires an AES multi-channel High-end DAC that could compete with Altitude’s own renowned DAC: Trinnov’s solution to that problem is Trinnov Altitude48ext.
Based on Magnitude32, the Altitude48ext includes 16 channels of AES/EBU inputs and 32 channels of analog outputs using the same DAC used in the Altitude32, ensuring perfect coherence in the final rendering. But the Altitude48ext is not just a DAC; it is a fully capable Trinnov unit with processing power to perform tasks such as calibrated crossovers, bass management, and both third-octave and FIR EQ.
The standard version of the Altitude16 natively decodes Dolby Digital Plus®, Dolby TrueHD®, DTS Digital Surround® and DTS-HD Master Audio® It also includes all immersive codecs by default so you can experience a new world of immersive sound with the latest technologies by Dolby Laboratories®, DTS Inc®, and Auro Technologies®.
