This is a great preamp even without using Trinnov's Optimizer, but when using the Optimizer it takes the preamp to the next level by compensating for a lot of your listening room's problems, such as booming bass. The Optimizer can be switched on or off and the improvement in sound when on is profound and, unlike some other room correction implementation, it doesn't sound artificial or digital.
The Amethyst preamplifier is Trinnov’s flagship high-end stereo product. On a single chassis, it combines an audiophile preamp, active crossovers, high-quality 24 bit/192kHz DACs, and a network renderer. It is Roon Ready and includes the world’s most advanced speaker/room correction: the Trinnov Optimizer.
Highly accurate, transparent and revealing as a pure preamp, the Amethyst elevates stereo playback through its state-of-the-art room correction system that reveals the best of your loudspeakers with incredible focus and imaging stability. High-resolution audio sources, up to 192kHz, are processed at their native sampling rates, never converted or down sampled.
With 64-bit floating-point processing, true signal integrity is assured, producing resolution greater than 320dB and enabling digital volume control without any loss of resolution. As the heart of your system, the Amethyst accommodates a total of twelve digital and analog sources, even including an analog phono stage for LP playback.
Set-up of the Optimizer is very straight forward and the 3D mic ($790 new) is included w/ the preamp. Setup is guided by the Optimizer’s calibration wizard, which enables system optimization in a matter of minutes. The wizard creates five presets with different acoustic flavors to get you started. Further fine-tuning is available through a deep set of additional tools, with up to 29 individual presets available for saving custom settings.
The Amethyst provides four output channels for stereo playback, enabling active crossovers, intelligently calibrated, for bi amplified speakers, or bass management to drive one or two subwoofers. The stereo channel configurations available are 2.0 with no subwoofer, 2.0 with bi amplified speakers, 2.1 with a single subwoofer or 2.2 with dual mono or stereo subwoofers.
