The ATP8500Audio Video Preamp Processor is a truly unique product. More than
just a preamplifier, the ATP8500 is a complete control center. The ATP8500
allows the casual user or the most experienced custom installer the ability
to customize even the most complex installations. SAE has successfully
combined the purest sonic capabilities with the most advanced set of features/functions
in the industry. SAE is the first to incorporate a 5-inch color monitor
on the front panel to facilitate initial setup and future programming.
This onboard monitor previews most video sources including menus from
DSS systems. The ATP8500 also features balanced outputs and an AES/EBU
Digital Input for devices such as DAT players.
The ATP 8500 decodes Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic and DVD audio.
The ATP8500.1 adds Dolby EX, Dolby PL II, DTS
ES, DTS NEO6. Naturally, the ATP 8500 can also function as a high-end
stereo preamplifier, and the digital signal processing and conversion
can be bypassed. The 7.1 channel input is provided with comprehensive
volume control facitlities. This ensures that the ATP 8500 will remain
compatible with new multi-channel formats to appear in the future. Music
Surround Modes include: Natural; Jazz Club; Stadium and Party.
