Crestron Expands Audio Solutions with DM NAX Streamer and In-Wall Sub

Native to Crestron Home, Crestron’s new subwoofer adds to their array of residential speaker products while the new DM NAX 4-Zone Streaming Pre-Amplifier diversifies the range of Audio-over-IP choices for dealers and homeowners.

Crestron Electronics, has announced the launch of two new residential audio products, an in-wall sub developed in partnership with Origin Acoustics, and the DM NAX 4-Zone Streaming Pre-Amplifier for high-performance Audio-over-IP (AoIP). The Crestron Ultimate In-Wall Subwoofer and the Crestron DM NAX Streaming Pre-Amplifier will both play major roles in filling out Crestron’s increasingly comprehensive suite of residential audio solutions, says the maker.

The Crestron Ultimate In-Wall Subwoofer represents the latest addition to Crestron’s line-up of home audio solutions, joining an existing array of over a dozen architectural and landscape speakers from Crestron. When paired with Crestron speakers from the Ultimate or Reference lines, the new Ultimate In-Wall Subwoofer helps create an immersive sound experience with deep, gratifying bass for demanding multiroom audio settings or home cinema applications. Like the other offerings in this line, Crestron says the Ultimate In-Wall Subwoofer is made with the highest-quality components as well as paintable grilles for a customisable aesthetic. Installation of each subwoofer is streamlined through an easy-to-use in-wall dogleg mounting system optimised to reduce interference with other elements present in the wall space.

The right partner

The Ultimate Subwoofer pairs natively with DM NAX AoIP technology and Crestron Home ecosystem, making it easy for homeowners to send full, rich sound throughout their home.

The newest addition to the DM NAX line is Crestron’s first pre-amplifier, diversifying the range of choices for homeowners and integrators looking for residential AoIP distribution platforms. Slimmer in form (1RU) but similar in function to the DM NAX Amplifier, the DM NAX 4-Zone Streaming Pre-Amplifier natively integrates with Crestron Home, is interoperable with AES67, and Dante audio networking. It uses hardwired connections, and requires no custom network architecture or hardware, meaning it can be connected to existing amplifiers in retrofit jobs or new builds. This interoperability and simple design allows integrators to use DM NAX to specify an entire house’s worth of audio systems with a single device. 

With the flexibility, scalability, and interoperability of DM NAX AoIP, integrators can deliver complete control of the audio environment to users, allowing them to toggle between TV audio, streaming music, podcasts, alarms, doorbells, and even paging and intercom usage to any speaker in the house.

“Both the Ultimate In-Wall Subwoofer and the expansion of our DM NAX solutions help us further our goal of providing integrators the most comprehensive suite of home audio solutions possible,” says Crestron’s Michael Short, Director of Residential Marketing. “These products natively integrate with each other and with the broader Crestron Home platform giving integrators the ability to hit the ground running, whether they are starting a new project or scaling the smart ecosystem for an existing client.”

The Ultimate Subwoofer is shipping March 23, while the DM NAX 4-Zone Streaming Pre-Amplifier is available for pre-order now.
