AudioControl has announced a new industry alliance initiative called the AudioControl Sound Partners Program. The objective of the Sound Partners Program is to work with leading architectural speaker manufacturers in order to implement performance profiles defined by their engineers which, when stored in the DSP onboard the AudioControl Director M-Series and D-Series high-performance 8 and 16-channel amplifiers, creates the ultimate whole-house entertainment/commercial audio platform for professional integrators.

An ever-expanding list of the most prominent architectural loudspeaker manufacturers have joined the Sound Partners Program— Origin Acoustics, James Loudspeaker, Triad Speakers, Stealth Acoustics, Monitor Audio, Nuvo, Dynaudio and Gray. Each company has provided critical performance measurements to AudioControl, enabling tailored profiles to be created and stored in software form.

“With today’s superlative loudspeaker designs, we acknowledge that products from these brands would likely require little if any fine-tuning in an ideal environment,” explained AudioControl CEO Alex Camara. “However when you factor in individual room acoustics for each home, these speaker profiles achieve an important step in providing the custom integrator the tools to deliver a premium entertainment experience by calibrating the systems for their clients. Together with the DSP capabilities in The Director M-Series amplifiers, AudioControl gives integrators the most efficient means to make that happen while differentiating themselves in a competitive market.”
