I am selling my ADA Mach IV HD unit (it has HDMI 1.4 board inside).
It has had infrequent use in the the year that I've owned it. As you know, this pre/processor gets amazing reviews for audio.
It's for me the best HT processor I ever had or tested (Classe SSP800, TAG, Lexicon, Cary Audio, ...).
It's a first hand
and I bought it end of last year (22/12/2011, so less than 1yr old) to the local distributor (Genesis Technologies France).
The unit is under warranty
(so until 22/12/2013).MSRP is 11240 € here in France (VAT in).Please add freight charges.Payement
- Bank Wire Transfers without fees.
- Paypall: +3% to cover costs.Copied from the web
The Cinema Rhapsody Mach IV-B is ADA's superior home theater controller/preamplifier. It features 8 HDMI inputs, 8 analog audio inputs, 8 digital audio input, and an 8 channel analog bypass input. There are also dual mirror HDMI outputs helping separate the Cinema Rhapsody Mach IV-B from other preamplifiers on the market. While similar in design to the Cinema Rhapsody Mach IV, the "B" version features balanced audio outputs.
The Cinema Rhapsody Mach IV-B decodes all the latest Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Audio Master and Multi-Channel PCM soundtracks found on Blu-ray DVDs. Just as HD video is noticeably better than regular DVD, these high-resolution (lossless) audio formats are dramatically better than regular 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound. You really can hear the difference and will never want to watch or listen to regular DVDs ever again. In a word, the home cinema as experienced on the Cinema Rhapsody Mach IV is fabulous.
The Cinema Rhapsody also has incredibly unique features that make it the only controller choice for many home theaters. In addition to featuring a simple to read and operate front panel control and its abundance of connection jacks, the Cinema Rhapsody Mach IV-B incorporates two bass crossovers, one in the DSP and one in the analog domain. This makes it possible for the Cinema Rhapsody Mach IV-B to work with full-range speakers, permitting them to play bass information while at the same time summing the bass of full-range channels with channels that are rolled off as well as the LFE (low frequency effects or ".1") channel. The subwoofer (speaker best designed to deliver bass) plays the bass from all channels simultaneously with the other speakers that are capable of delivering bass. With any other preamp, full range speakers would need to "roll-off" (not play bass) so that the subwoofer would play the bass. Not so with the Cinema Rhapsody Mach IV-B. Similar to providing a video loop facility so that one can incorporate the very best video processing, the Cinema Rhapsody makes it possible to incorporate the very best speakers into your system without compromising performance.
