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.”
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.
