Crestron is expanding its Procise line of home theater products with a surround sound processor that’s sure to get fans of Sony’s portable device excited (and then really let down). Dubbed the PSPHD (see?), this 7.3 surround sound audio processor was designed with the high end consumer in mind. The PSPHD features Audyssey Multi EQ XT, Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume, as well as independent controls for EQ, gating and compression for each mix input.
This is the first Crestron component capable of decoding all Blu-ray codecs including Dolby TrueHD 7.1 and DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1. The PSPHD’s six HDMI inputs support 7.1 channel audio as well as 1080/60p and can be switched with little latency thanks to Quick Switch HD technology. A trio of independent subwoofer outputs ensures extensive bass management, and Crestron boasts an impressive amount of customization.
Crestron also announced a companion to the PSPHD, the PROAMP-7X400. A seven channel power amplifier which pushes 400W per channel at 8 Ohms, the PROAMP-7X400 was designed to match the PSPHD in both performance and appearance. Release dates and pricing information are as of yet unannounced for these products.
