Trinnov’s high-end stereo flagshiP

It includes an 11-source preamplifier with built-in Speaker/Room Optimizer, Trinnov’s innovative HybriD Phono Preamp, a Network Renderer, a 24 bit/192kHz DA Converter and a 2-way intelligent, active crossover engine.The Amethyst also features built-in Wifi connectivity for simplified operations. It is the perfect centerpiece of any traditional or modern Hifi Installation.

Loudspeaker Room Optimization
The Amethyst is Trinnov’s high-end stereo flagship.

Our research into capturing and reproducing complex three-dimensional sound fields began in 2001.
In fact, the company name derives from “Tri” and “Innovation.” Hence, Trinnov Audio has meant “Innovation in 3D Audio” from when we first incorporated in 2003.

One of the first things we discovered in our research is that complex 3D sound fields do not blend together seamlessly unless the sound heard from all of the speakers is extremely well-matched in both the amplitude and time domains.Our Optimizer was developed to achieve this goal with any combination of quality loudspeakers and has become recognized as the most advanced and powerful technology of its kind.

Trinnov is in our view the best room correction/speaker optimization solution on the market, the ability to do active crossovers and bass management combined with phase and amplitude correction is truly unique and all this concentrated in one High-End product.

In the end, I loved the Trinnov Amethyst so much that I kept it. Yes, it is fairly expensive, but to me it was well worth it. For me, it’s also a huge advantage that its flexibility and power allows me to re-calibrate it myself to suit any room or system change. But all that wouldn’t matter one tiny bit if it didn’t sound good. But it most definitely sounds superb. Give it a listen, you may well feel the same.

It is the concentrated «savoir-faire» hidden in the Trinnov case that is very impressive. To my knowledge, the Optimizer is the most subtle correction processor that can tell the difference between useful fixes and those that might add problems. If I had to emphasize a single benefit of Amethyst, I would insist on its particular ease of use !

We were seduced by the flexibility of use, the efficiency of the speaker/room optimization which - without destroying the musicality - overcame colorations, masking effects and lack of readability.

Trinnov’s Amethyst DAC-preamplifier-processor is one of those rare components that reveal immediate benefits on first hearing. After running the preamp’s Optimizer calibration, I noted a dramatic cleaning-up of bass definition and a related tightening of midrange focus. Soundstage depth improved, and I experienced clarity and precision from even the most densely mixed of my reference tracks

The big hit, apart from the unparalleled flexibility in signal and memory management, is the Room Correction Optimizer, which lives up to its name. Thanks to three-dimensional acoustics measurement and flawless corrections for timely reproduction, the overall system always sounds fantastic, natural and somehow "right "

What we like about the Trinnov is that it remains an easy device despite the enormous amount of possibilities

Jaap Veenstra

VU Mètre Magazine Review

Without the acoustic correction system engaged, the Amethyst already behaves like an excellent preamplifier/converter which does not demerit at all at the proposed price. As we engaged the room correction system, we discover a whole new world we had not yet imagined

Pierre Fontaine & Laurent Thorin

Audiophile-Magazine

The Amethyst really gives a lot for the price, and even more when comparing its features to simple high-end preamplifiers.

Joël Chevassus

HiFi+ magazine UK Review

The Trinnov Amethyst is a complex, expensive piece of equipment that more than justifies its complexity and expense the moment you engage its room correction system
