With an ultra-compact form factor, American brand Acurus’ 2RU products, the 16-channel MUSE immersive processor and the 200Wx8 M8 amplifier, bring a complete solution to the demands of modern private home cinemas or multi-purpose media rooms. With a 5-year renewable lifetime warranty, this combination has phenomenal power and immersive audio capability in a 6RU configuration for $16,997 MSRP.
With the availability of the MUSE and M8, Acurus has performance audio solutions that span a huge spectrum of installer applications, especially given the MUSE’s ability to natively decode up to 16 channels of Atmos content, a capability that is not found in processors of this caliber and price range. The processor is upgradeable, meaning that the latest HDMI and audio decoding features are available with software or modular hardware updates. Set-up is easy with Acurus’ intuitive front panel, full-color touchscreen GUI, or via embedded web control. Third-party drivers are available for all major control solutions.
When the MUSE is matched with the M8, the low-profile 2RU 200W, 8-channel Class D M8 amplifier, the combination provides exceptional rack space savings while offering incredible power density. For even more flexibility, the M8 is a bridgeable amp which provides installers with two power domains of 200W or 320W. Supporting LCRs vs surrounds with differing power demands is a breeze with the MUSE/M8 stack.
Together, these two products are an immediate solution for customers who desire a unique home cinema experience with astonishing audio fidelity. To round out this fantastic immersive solution, Acurus offers its ASPEQT room acoustic optimization software which integrates seamlessly with any MUSE/M8 installation. ASPEQT will take any Acurus immersive cinema to its absolute pinnacle of sound capability.
