At Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH (21-24 March), Crestron will be showing its audio delivery systems to the world’s leading audiophiles and demonstrating how its networked solutions and controls can realise industry leading signal and sound quality.


Crestron’s Sonnex system redefines audio distribution for the digital age. The revolutionary audio transport technology transmits up to 48 channels of uncompressed 24-bit HD audio across a single shielded CAT5e cable. Representing a new generation of multi-room audio distribution, Sonnex delivers improved performance and significantly reduces hardware and software cabling.

Blending high-performance digital audio processing, full-matrix switching and high-powered amplification into a single component, Sonnex provides an all-in-one, high efficiency hardware design and an exclusive single-wire digital bus. Sonnex technology dramatically advances performance, output, efficiency and ease of installation – gone are the days of purchasing separate amps, preamps, switchers and the extensive cabling required to connect them.


PROCISE is a professional audio processing product line that creates a completely immersive audio experience. The PSPHD high-definition 7.3 surround sound audio processor is a uniquely designed for applications and an elegant technology showpiece. The PSPHD has a beautiful front panel, which features vintage-style digital VU meters and spectrum analysis for graphical display of audio and diagnostics. Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 support the latest lossless audio formats to deliver the full experience of Blu-ray Disc and other high-definition media.

The companion PROAMP amplifiers are precision-matched to the PSPHD in form and performance. Using a simple Ethernet connection, the PSPHD processor and PROAMP amplifier automatically pair, enabling seamless control and monitoring of the amplifier through the PSPHD front panel. The PROAMP 7X400 model delivers 400 watts at 8 ohms on all seven channels for an amazing audio experience.

DigitalMedia and 3-Series Control

Crestron has lead the automation industry for over 40 years and its latest networking solution, DigitalMedia 8G+, has become the industry standard for its ability to deliver virtually any mix of analogue and digital signals without compression or scaling.

Combined with the award winning 3-Series processor, we are able to offer complete solutions for audio signal delivery in all professional environments. Engineered like an IT platform, rather than an AV system, the 3-Series platform is a cloud-based architecture designed to provide a foundation for powerful integrated technology. The innovation of 3-Series unleashes more processing power, faster speeds, more memory, enhanced security and powerful multitasking capabilities that simplify the design and implementation of integrated building technology.

Also on show at the Crestron stand will be a range of touch panel controllers for the simple intuitive control of sound levels, lighting scenes and all other aspects of automation. Crestron is able to offer sound engineers, stage technicians, lighting specialists and event managers full control of all systems at the touch of a button or swipe of a touch screen.
