Amethyst angle_white


  • 11 Source high-end preamplifier
  • Active crossovers / bi-amplification
  • Builtin room/speaker optimizer

The Amethyst is the flagship stereo preamplifier and a remarkable combination of advanced technologies. It features the Trinnov room correction/speaker optimizer, a Roon end point and 11 source preamplifier.

“… clarity and precision from even the most densely mixed of my reference tracks.”

– Al Griffin, Soundstagesimplifi


Like all Trinnov products, the Amethyst delivers an unrivaled level of accuracy regarding processing to maintain the highest possible audio quality throughout the signal path. While regular DSP-based platforms would immediately down-sample high-resolution audio material, the platform process audio up to 192 kHz.


Furthermore, the 64 bit floating-point processing section increases the accuracy of all calculations to guarantee true signal integrity with a resolution greater than 320dB. This processing headroom allows the unit to perform digital volume control without any loss of resolution.


The Amethyst includes an 11-source preamplifier with built-in ppeaker/room optimizer, Trinnov’s innovative hybrid phono preamp, a network renderer, a 24 bit/192kHz DA converter and a 2-way intelligent, active crossover engine. It also features built-in wifi connectivity for simplified operations making it the perfect centerpiece of any traditional or modern hifi installation.
