Featuring a refined minimalist design highlighting a new full-color 5" display that provides access to a wealth of information, such as real-time multichannel VuMeter or HDMI signal details, for a quick accessible overview of essential data. The ISP Core 16 can be easily controlled by a variety of tools, ranging from the included IR remote control to home automation systems or the Android/iOS app available on smartphones or tablets. Our credo is to engineer high-performing products that are simple to use and easy to set up for the customer; the ISP Core 16 is no exception, it comes with StormAudio’s intuitive user Interface and user-friendly Speaker Configurator.

Based on the design of its big brother the ISP Elite, it delivers the same audio performance with the same DAC portion and proprietary analog/digital hybrid volume adjustment that maximizes the dynamic range for a more accurate, detailed and dynamic reproduction of your movie soundtrack or your music playlists.

Although the ISP Core 16 does not offer modularity, upgradability of the HDMI board remains possible so you can stay up to date whenever new updates are released.
