THETA DIGITAL SHIPS UPDATED CASABLANCA III HD PREAMP / PROCESSOR
ADDS HDMI 1.4 AND LOSSLESS AUDIO DECODING
ANNOUNCES UPGRADE AND TRADE-IN PROGRAMS
Montebello, CA , February 1, 2011 - The most widely acclaimed manufacturer of high-end audio components, Theta Digital, has begun shipments of its updated flagship preamp processor, the Casablanca III HD. Originally introduced over 15 years ago, the Casablanca series has undergone continuous development designed to maintain it at the forefront of the audiophile world. In its latest iteration, the Casablanca III HD adds four HDMI 1.4 inputs and decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio to the Casablanca III platform.
Depending on the user-selected configuration, pricing for the Casablanca III HD with eight channels of Digital to Analog conversion starts at $14,995.00 USD and can run to well over $20,000.00 USD when configured for twelve channel output using Theta Digital's top-of-the-line Xtreme D-2 digital to analog converters.
Theta Digital also announced two new programs designed to allow owners of previous generations of the Casablanca preamp / processor to keep their components up-to-date.
The first program adds three new circuit boards, a new power supply and new operating system to the existing Casablanca III and brings it fully to Casablanca III HD status. MSRP for the HD upgrade is $4,995.00 USD.
The second program offers owners of the Casablanca I or II (previous generations of the Theta Digital preamp/processor) a trade-in allowance of up to $5,000.00 USD applied to the purchase of the new Casablanca III HD.
According to Jeff Hipps, Theta Digital's head of sales and marketing, "the trade in program continues our commitment to protect the value of the Theta owner's investment while keeping his components at the edge of the art."
Users seeking more details on the new model, the upgrade program or the trade-in program should consult with their Theta Digital dealer or international representative.
