Great surround sound starts with a great processor, and the HD-XSPA employs professional grade decoding and signal processing to support the latest 7.1 digital formats including Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby Digital® Plus, and DTS-HD Master Audio™. Onboard DSP provides the sonic tools needed to maximize the sound quality of each speaker within the room, including a choice of 9-band graphic or parametric EQ, plus trim, delay, crossover, and speaker protection adjustments. Additional controls are provided for main volume, bass, treble, loudness, compression, and LFE. Advanced HDCP management ensures trouble-free handling of copy-protected digital HD content.
Despite its compact size, the HD-XSPA delivers a generous amount of power from its onboard multichannel power amplifier. Each amp channel is capable of producing a gratifying 140 Watts at 8 Ohms, and 240 Watts at 4 Ohms. Instead of the customary seven amp channels, the HD-XSPA features eight full channels of robust amplification to drive a complete 7.1 speaker system including a passive in-wall subwoofer, minimizing both rack space and floor space requirements. A line-level sub output is also included to support an active powered subwoofer.
The HD-XSPA can be set up to support a wide variety of speaker configurations up to 7.1. When configured for use with a 5.1 or smaller speaker system, two of its amp channels can be reallocated to drive a second stereo zone. See “Downmix Output” below for more information.
The HD-XSPA includes full input connectivity for all types of digital and analog sources including Blu-ray Disc® players, HDTV receivers, game consoles, computers, media servers, and mobile devices. Additionally, a DigitalMedia input and stereo downmix output are included to facilitate integration as part of a whole-house AV system.
Audio signals can be routed to and from the HD-XSPA using Crestron AUD-EXT Audio over CAT5 Extenders, allowing for integration with a Sonnex Multiroom Audio System.
DigitalMedia connectivity affords sharing of multichannel audio along with HD video as part of a complete DigitalMedia network.
Via DigitalMedia or Ethernet, the HD-XSPA can communicate with a Crestron control system, allowing user-friendly operation via a choice of touch screens, handheld remotes, smartphones, and tablet computers.
Using the hardware provided, the HD-XSPA can be installed in an equipment rack or placed on a shelf.
When connected to a DigitalMedia switcher or transmitter, the HD-XSPA can function as a keyboard/mouse extender. Via its rear panel USB port, a USB HID-compliant keyboard and/or mouse can be connected and used to control a computer or media server in the central equipment cabinet (or any other location).
Other types of USB devices, including mobile phones, media players, Web cameras, flash drives, and game controllers, can be supported by adding a USB-EXT-DM-REMOTE extender module. Also, a local host computer, media server, or game console can be controlled from a remote location by adding a USB-EXT-DM-LOCAL extender module.
For systems utilizing in-wall or in-ceiling speakers, it’s critical that the amplifier driving those speakers possesses the intelligence to protect itself in the event of a shorted or damaged speaker line. The HD-XSPA includes sophisticated protection from many types of faults on a per channel basis. In the event of a fault, the front panel LCD provides clear fault indication to speed the troubleshooting of damaged or incorrect wiring, poor rack ventilation, and other unforeseen issues. Fault alerts may also be broadcast to a touch screen or mobile device, and integrators can even monitor and track the data remotely to ensure a rapid service response.
Configurable output limiting assures maximum headroom while preventing damage to the speakers. The limiting threshold is easily set to match the power handling capability of each speaker, achieving a completely transparent effect right up to the speakers’ limits without fear of overpowering them.
The Speaker Profiles feature delivers excellent sound quality quickly by allowing installers to save and load EQ and Speaker Protection settings for all of the speakers they sell and install. Tuning a complete surround sound system can be as easy as loading the appropriate Speaker Profile for each speaker. Additional simplified settings are included to compensate for a room’s size, materials, and speaker placement. A complete set of profiles is provided for Crestron Essence®, Aspire®, Excite®, and AIR® speakers, allowing any installer to achieve a great sounding system without touching a single EQ setting.
For ultimate versatility, the HD-XSPA can be equipped for use with 70 or 100 Volt speakers. Also known as “constant-voltage”, 70 Volt and 100 Volt speaker systems allow for long wire runs using small-gauge wire, with the potential for connecting numerous speakers per circuit. Typical applications include outdoor speaker zones and commercial environments. Any of the HD-XSPA’s amplifier outputs can be converted to 70 or 100 Volt using Sonnex Output Transformers (SAT-70V/100V-2 or SAT-70V/100V-4).
The HD-XSPA includes an assortment of built-in control ports to allow for programmable control of the local AV components and other room devices without the need for extra control modules or wiring. Each control port is addressable from a Crestron control system, whether that control system is installed locally or in another room. Ethernet, RS-232, IR, and low-voltage relay ports provide for control of the display device and AV sources, and may also be used to control a motorized screen or lift, window treatments, lighting, and other equipment in the room. Many AV devices can also be controlled directly via the HDMI ports. Four “SENS” inputs are also included to accommodate power sensors, motion detectors, and other contact closure devices.
