StormAudio to launch MK2 home cinema range at ISE 2020

StormAudio rains down new features with MK2 family

by Andy Bassett

France based StormAudio will be using ISE 2020 to launch its MK2 line-up of AV processors and amplifiers intended for use by installers and end users alike.

The Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2020 show, which takes place in Amsterdam from February 11th-14th, will see StormAudio introducing its new MK2 range, which represents a major upgrade for the company’s home cinema components. The MK2 range will be showcased in partnership with Alcon Audio where an ISP.32 Digital MK2 in a full digital 11.4.8 cinema set up will be playing DTS:X Pro tracks, delivering a greater number of audio channels than the typical 12-16 offered by residential DTS:X.

Bringing a new industrial design, the MK2 line-up delivers modularity and flexibility with 16, 24 or 32-channel analogue preamp/processors, a fully loaded digital AES 32-channel machine as well as 8 and 16-channel amps.

The company’s line-up already supported Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, Auro-3D, Dirac Live Room Calibration as well as including StormAudio’s own web-based remote monitoring tool, StormMonitoring.
The latest features now add support for IMAX Enhanced, Auro-3D Version 2, eARC HDMI, 24-channel (13.1.10 Dolby Atmos and DTS:X Pro) decoding, rapid codec switching (as much as 50% improvement) as well as advanced bass management including the recently introduced Dirac Live Bass Control module carried across the new 4.0 firmware package. This positions StormAudio uniquely in getting that all-important bass right in home cinema and AV installations.
Another unique feature on the processors is StormAudio’s own 7+2 eARC HDMI card which delivers quicker, rock-solid switching with total HDMI2.0b/HDCP2.2 support. The card supports 4K,18 Gigabits per second bandwidth on every input and output port with Dolby Vision and HDR10 compatibility.

The MK2 range can be ordered now with delivery expected in March/April. No prices are available prior to ISE 2020.
