Savant, a leader in smart home technology, has introduced a high-fidelity smart audio amplifier that will support AirPlay 2 and HomeKit as part of the company’s new Smart Series family, offering popular music streaming services, 24-bit 96k high-resolution playback with ultra-low latency and 125 Watts per channel out of the box. The Savant SmartAmp features an onboard DSP engine that has been optimized for all Savant loudspeakers including Savant’s small aperture PoE speakers. The DSP also supports an EQ which enables precise fine audio tuning. Users will love the intuitive standalone Savant Music app, providing easy setup and customization of shortcuts to their favourite music and artists. The Savant SmartAmp will be available summer, 2019 with an MSRP of $699.
Using multiple Savant SmartAmps and Micro Aperture architectural speakers enable users to enjoy a premium distributed audio experience. They can easily group rooms, create entertainment scenes, playlists and favourites through the standalone Savant Music app. The Savant Smart Amp can be connected to any speakers, including Savant’s full line of high-performance architectural loudspeakers and sound bars as part of a single room music system or for the entire home. This powerful, 125 Watt per channel amplifier will deliver sparklingly clear music to any room throughout the home, and an array of digital and analogue inputs and outputs make the amp plug-and-play with other entertainment devices such as TVs, media players and more.
The Savant SmartAmp is fully upgradable to a complete Savant smart home system, giving users the ultimate flexibility to add intelligent functionality down the road.
Savant’s self-powered Micro Aperture architectural speakers use PoE technology (Power over Ethernet) to drastically reduce the complexity associated with distributed audio system design and installation. Each powered speaker utilizes a Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) driver, which delivers exceptional sensitivity and wide dispersion. Each PoE speaker contains a highly efficient amplifier with DSP to optimize performance. These self-powered speakers not only reduce installation time, but they also deliver superb sound quality throughout any space because content remains in the digital domain from source to speaker.
