The CEDIA Expo which starts in San Diego, California this week will see the wraps come off StormAudio's new ISP 3D.20 ELITE processor.

StormAudio's first 20 channel preamp/processor unit joins the brand’s existing lineup of 6 and 32 channel analog and digital preamp/processors and complements the brand's range of 8 and 16 channel amplifiers.

With 20 XLR outputs, the ISP 3D.20 ELITE has been designed for home cinemas featuring more than 16 channels, multiple subwoofers (up to five with independent control), or speaker configurations including Auro-3D, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X. It also features Dirac Live Room Calibration which has recently released a new Beta version promising a better user interface, easier setup and configuration.

Unique to StormAudio is its unique WebUI interface offering intuitive access, control and monitoring. StormAudio Support Manager, Chrisanne Rhodes, told StereoNET:

The interface is intuitive, offering setup from basic to the most advanced. Additionally, the installer can prepare the processor in as little as three clicks of their computer mouse, sparing them from the labor intensive setup and calibration requirements imposed by leading competitors’ processors.

StormAudio's ISP 3D.20 ELITE is also compatible with next-generation AudioVideoBridging (AVB) Speaker Integration offered by companies such as ASCENDO Immersive Audio.

According to Storm, AVB allows both the processor and each speaker to be connected via RJ45 cables to an AV-enabled network router that manages the audio routing, delivering real-time audio-video streams to the speakers over the Ethernet-based network.

As you would expect, the ISP 3D.20 ELITE features 7.2 HDMI, fully supports 4K video and HDMI 2.0 / HDCP2.2 and HDR.

StormAudio's ISP 3D.20 ELITE will feature this week at CEDIA in a joint StormAudio / Starke Sound Dolby Atmos 9.1.6 home theatre demonstration.

Built to order, delivery is around three weeks, and they sell in Australia for $23,500 RRP.
