The Amethyst is designed and built in France by Trinnov. For further details see

Joel Chevassus of 6Moons awarded the Amethyst the Blue Moon 2014 award

That’s the concentrated know-how hiding inside the Trinnov box which is so impressive. The Trinnov Optimizer to my knowledge is the most subtle correction processor to intelligently balance between truly helpful corrections and those liable to create more problems. If I had to highlight just one special feature of the Amethyst, I would in fact highlight this particular user-friendliness!

The Anethyst was elected ‘Best innovative Solution’ at the 2014 High End Moscow Show, and‘Reference’ by French ‘Haute Fidelite’ magazine 2013. Philippe David of Haute Fidelite reached the folwing verdict in the Aug/Sep 2016 edition ..

This device has impressed both our spirit and our demanding ears. With its clever hardware design and its highly effective acoustic correction software, this piece of cutting-edge technology is able to erase the undesired effects of the speaker/room coupling. Given all its qualities in the processing of sound, such a device should be mandatory. It makes itself indispensable in a high-fidelity installation. An absolute must have!
