Seattle based AudioControl are no strangers to the technical challenges of high-end theatre and audio processing. In their own words, as a group of “obsessive audio experts”, they’ve been creating high-end audio processing solutions for over 40 years.

Their latest release is the Maestro M5 7.1.4 Channel 4K UltraHD Preamplifier which features Dolby Atmos, DTX:X, plus Dirac Live room correction.

The Maestro M5 takes advantage of the latest surround formats and advanced room correction technology to deliver unparalleled clarity in any size theatre.

It’s based upon the award-winning audio and video platform utilised in AudioControl’s line of home theatre receivers, delivering the features and performance enthusiasts crave. The M5 offers Dolby Atmos and DTS-X immersive audio surround formats and Dirac Live room correction along with dual balanced XLR inputs and balanced XLR outputs for all channels.

With seven HDMI sources plus dual HDMI outputs (ARC compatible) as well as an ultra HD 4K video pass-through and upscaling capability that includes support for High Dynamic Range (HDR), the Maestro M5 ticks all the boxes.

The M5 comes equipped with an intuitive programmable remote control and has Ethernet plus RS232 jacks and software drivers available for compatibility with popular smart home platforms.

The Maestro M5 is available in an elegant Espresso Black finish and comes with AudioControl’s outstanding 5-year warranty backed by 40 years of class-leading customer service.

The AudioControl M5 Maestro will be available later this year and pricing will be confirmed by local distributor Synergy Audio Visual closer to release.
