Savant is showcasing an expanded entertainment offering for integrators with new options for IP Music Servers and in-wall invisible speakers, while offering access to established DSP amplifiers at the CEDIA Expo.

Savant says the objective is to provide integration professionals with the tools they need to satisfy the premium whole-house entertainment needs of every client.

Savant IP Audio Music Server

The brand-new Savant IP Audio Music Server has been designed and manufactured by Savant from the ground up, enabling integrators to provide local content or streaming of music for their clients. The IP Audio Music Server works with Savant’s expanding family of IP Audio products to create the a whole-house entertainment system in any zone simply by accessing the network.

The IP Audio Music Server features Savant Music 2.0, the new music server experience based on improved software that includes improved speed, easier navigation, preset recall and song queues. Savant Music 2.0 also features redesigned app control screens, making it easier for users to navigate.

Also new, an equaliser screen makes it easy to fine-tune the sound on supported devices. Users will also appreciate access to streaming services such as Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, Tidal, and more, as well PLEX support for locally stored music.

Artison Sound Surface Invisible Speakers

Designed to be completely hidden behind the wall, Artison says its engineers have developed a technology that sounds rich and detailed yet requires less amplifier power than traditional speakers. Using a soundboard technology approach, the Artison Sound Surface speakers use resonances to generate soundwaves originating from multiple locations on the board, generating a broad frequency range with only small fluctuations in amplitude.

Artison Sound Surface speakers are designed to be sheet rock mudded into the wall, allowing them to be textured for a clean final install for invisible audio. The fully closed back design offers isolation from other spaces and the single-piece body is designed for simple installation into both pre-construction and retrofit options.

Artison Sound Surface speakers can be installed outdoors under material like stucco or beneath decorative wallpaper. Available in 40 or 80W versions.

AudioControl Partnership

Savant is providing integrators with access to AudioControl’s Director D-Series DSP-enabled amplifiers, models D2800 and D4600 through the Savant store. AudioControl Director D-Series amps offer DSP profiles for a variety of speaker brands including Artison, a space-saving 1U form factor (D2800) and a robust 100W @8-ohms/200-watts @4-ohms per channel.

Integrators can configure graphic and parametric equalisation, crossover settings, volume control, zone grouping, network monitoring and more all via IP. Director D-Series amplifiers also feature AudioControl LightDrive Anti-Clipping Speaker Protection and Digital Signal Sense.
