OUR NEW KID ON THE BLOCK AND NEW ENTRY HIGH LEVEL IMMERSIVE AUDIO PROCESSOR HAS WON AGAIN : THIS TIME REFERENCED AS HOMETHEATERREVIEW.COM 2018 BEST OF AWARD
If you’re obsessed with chasing down the last nth degree of audio performance, price be damned, this is the object-based surround sound solution you’ve been looking for. With the best room correction known to man or Wookiee, nearly infinite customization tools, and pure sound quality that would curl your eyelashes even without all the other goodies tacked on, this beast absolutely broke Dennis Burger’s heart when he had to box it up and ship it back.
In this month edition of HOME THEATER REVIEW, Dennis Burger gets deep into the Altitude16, with a really in-depth and overall constructive review.
Here are some highligths:
I’ve explored this virtual open world via so many AV receivers and preamps that I can’t be bothered to count them all and through any number of diverse speaker configurations. But never have I experienced it with this level of holistic sonic transparency. It’s the difference between, say, 95 percent perfect and absolute perfection. But then again, the Altitude16 is made for people for whom 95 percent isn’t enough.
I’ve joked at times before about being upset over having to return a piece of review gear, but more often than not, it’s just that: a light bit of fun. With the Trinnov Altitude16 Home Theater Preamp/Optimizer, though, this is no joking matter. I’m literally miffed about having to box this beast up in a few days and ship it back to its manufacturer. I’ve been to the promised land and I don’t take kindly to being kicked out.
