Since we're dreaming...
  • I imagine up to 32 outputs like the other Trinnov systems. I personally only plan on having 16 or so (11.4).
  • Independently controllable subs, at least 4.
  • I only need 3 HDMI inputs so 6 would be good. Dual outputs.
  • 6 SPDIF / 3 each of coax and toslink.
  • 8 balanced pre-outs. I already have a DB25 cable so I'm good if the unbalanced are through that.
  • I don't think I currently have any analog-only devices. So, only one of those.
  • Don't need a tuner or streamer interface. For the latter, if you already have it....
  • Input switchable triggers; e.g. If I'm listening to music I don't need the multi-channel amp on.
  • Video-switching only up to 4k and 3D.


Ergonomics-wise.
  • Harmony-1000-like remote
  • Power on volume limiter. user-settable.
  • Nice feature on the Aragon was to reset volume on input switching.
  • Please lock on to audio signals quickly.
  • Silent when locking on (no pops please!).
  • A big complaint with the Sherwood was not being able to change crossover settings after running Trinnov setup.
  • No bright LEDs.
  • Easily switchable listening position; e.g I sit here watching movies but there when playing games.
  • Hopefully the display will be full of information. Bit rate, sample size, format, encoding, etc.
  • Native DSD decoding.
  • Mac compatible.
  • Web/browser controller interface.
  • USB or network firmware upgrading.
  • One button switching between stereo and multi-channel.


Generous warranty.

Reasonable upgrade pricing from 8->12->16...->32 channels.

I'd like to see loudspeaker protection via fully adjustable compressor and limiters on each channel. We all can be a bit ham-fisted from time to time.

Different EQ per input. Think TV with its ridiculous bass manipulation versus a real input device

The Pro Trinnov units have presets you can set up that way and dedicate however you want from the VNC-based control device. It's actually pretty easy to switch between them, since you can control the component from a networked device like an iPad.

My definition of affordable: somewhere in the $8-10K neighborhood

A realistic definition of affordable: slightly less than the Datasat

The Amethyst is 9000euros according to a recent review. (over $12k, according to google). So, unfortunately, that number probably needs to double.


Unless some of the recent price changes help out.

Not sure where the info came from, but some pictures and information were posted in a thread on the Emotiva forum.

It's a scan from a brochure handed out at the recent ISE fair in The Netherlands.


So there will be four versions with 8-16-24-32 channels...


Here's the source in Dutch:
http://www.htforum.nl/yabbse/index.php?topic=140442.msg2579861#msg2579861


He says the Altitude 32 will cost €14,700. If that's indeed the version with 32 output channels (and 16 inputs) then this seems far better value than the same priced 15 output channel Datasat LS10 sans Dirac.


Edit: a closer look learns that the 4 versions are all called "Altitude 32". The versions are from Altitude 32 / 8-8 up to Altitude 32 / 16-32...

The 15K Euros includes 21% VAT, apparently, which US folks don't pay as such AFAIK (although there's other taxes that may apply). But if that's the 32 channel price, there's a remote chance that the 8 channel version might _almost_ be affordable in my dream world LOL (under $10K US). OTOH, if that's the eight channel price....it's in Datasat territory or greater.

+1 but I jumped to fast. See my edit. I guess it's the start price for the 8-channel version.

Well its €10k euros for a trinnov mc 8 with no digi cards. So I'm gonna guess that this €15k is for the most basic model, either that or there is something missing from it.


For an 8 channel analogue expansion card for trinnov mc is €2500. Same for 8 chan digi card. So on those workings it's would be a good €10k extra for all cards. So I reckon nearer €25k for the full blown model. Which, IMO, is a bit of a bargain!

Everything is relative I suppose...
