Compatibilty

Dolby atmos®

Dolby Atmos for the home represents every sound in the original cinema mix as an audio object. Extensions to the Dolby Audio CODECs, along with an advanced scalable algorithm, allow Dolby Atmos to be delivered via Blu-ray Disc and streaming media. AudioControl’s Immersive AV Receivers and Processors adapt the cinema experience to your home theater using up to 16 channels, recreating the original artistic concept.

Dolby vision®

Dolby Vision is advanced high dynamic range (HDR). A new capability in today’s cutting-edge televisions, HDR complements HD and UHD displays. Rather than increasing resolution, HDR focuses on the brightness, contrast, and color of the image. While these benefits have been talked about in the past, one look at a new HDR display reveals a powerfully enhanced TV image. AudioControl’s Immersive AV Receivers and Processors fully support playback of Dolby Vision content.

DTS:XTM

Creating a lifelike audio experience in a cinema or at home has always presented a challenge. DTS:X makes sound move around you like it would in real life – without requiring specific speakers or custom configurations. Moviemakers can now immerse you deeper in the experience than ever before. AudioControl’s Immersive AV Receivers and Processors support DTS:X and will bring the mix designed for movie theaters into your home.

Imax enhanced®

AudioControl’s IMAX Enhanced Immersive AV Receivers and Processors feature DTS:X immersive audio decoding that is optimized to properly reproduce the full dynamic range of IMAX theatrical sound mixes available in IMAX Enhanced content. With meticulous adjustments modeled on the IMAX theatrical sound system, this proprietary IMAX audio mix is translated for home theater environments and exclusively delivered using a special variant of the DTS:X codec technology to deliver the IMAX signature sound experience in the home. Additionally, IMAX is working with its global studio and content partners to make available a steady stream of IMAX Enhanced versions of blockbuster movies and additional programming.

Auro-3d®

Auro-3D is the next generation three-dimensional audio standard. It provides a realistic sound experience unlike anything before. By fully immersing the listener in a cocoon of life-like sound, Auro-3D creates the sensation of actually ‘being there’. Thanks to a unique ‘Height’ channel configuration, acoustic reflections are generated and heard naturally due to the fact that sounds originate from around as well as above the listener.

Dirac live® & Dirac live® Bass control

AudioControl’s Immersive AV Receivers and Processors use a built in proprietary automatic loudspeaker setup function from Dirac Research. Dirac Live determines the essential speaker settings for all the speakers in your system, calculates room equalization (Room EQ) filter values to remove some of the worst effects of resonant frequencies in the listening room. Dirac Live Bass Control delivers spatially consistent bass response to make the most of your subwoofer setup. The result is improved staging, better clarity and intelligibility in music and vocals, and deeper, tighter bass without resonance.

Roon ready

Roon is an incredibly rich and engaging way to browse and organize your music. It runs on most Mac, Windows, and Linux PCs, or on other products which include Roon Core. Being Roon Ready means that AudioControl network players transparently discover and connect to Roon without any configuration, and bit-perfect audio is delivered from Roon to your network player. Together, Roon and AudioControl deliver the power, flexibility, and performance of networked audio, with the easiest setup and highest reliability available.
