Our Review

Introduction

The Trinnov Altitude 24 Channel Surround Processor stands at the pinnacle of home theater technology, catering to audiophiles and cinema enthusiasts who seek nothing less than an unparalleled immersive audio experience. As the heart of a high-end home theater setup, this processor promises to deliver the ultimate sonic landscape, driving the growing demand for detailed and enveloping sound.

Design and Build Quality

Upon first glance, the Trinnov Altitude 24 exudes professionalism with its robust rack-friendly design and industrial aesthetics. The unit's construction is solid, reflecting its premium status in the market. Connectors and ports are of high quality, ensuring secure and reliable connections—a critical aspect for a processor that sits at the core of a complex audio system.

Core Features and Technology

Boasting a 24-channel processing capability, this processor is an architect of sound, capable of orchestrating a comprehensive array of speakers to create a truly immersive environment. At its core lies the Trinnov Optimizer technology, an advanced room correction system that meticulously adjusts audio output to the unique acoustics of the listening space. Complementing this is the formidable combination of an Intel i7 processor, 2GB of RAM, and solid-state storage, ensuring that signal processing is handled with precision and agility.

Connectivity and Compatibility

The connectivity suite of the Trinnov Altitude 24 is as extensive as it is impressive, with HDMI 2.1 readiness, XLR balanced outputs, and a plethora of digital and analog inputs. It is also future-proofed, supporting a wide range of audio formats including Dolby Atmos, DTS:X Pro, Auro-3D, and IMAX Enhanced. The Roon Ready and UPnP renderer certification further enhance its appeal to users who value seamless integration with their existing networks and devices.

Setup and Configuration

Setting up the Trinnov Altitude 24 is not for the faint-hearted; the absence of on-screen menus means that a mouse, monitor, or VNC client is a necessity for configuration. This could pose a challenge for non-technical users, but it's a one-time hurdle that, once overcome, unlocks the processor's full potential.

Calibration and Customization

The calibration process is where the Trinnov Altitude 24 truly shines. With its 3D microphone-based speaker measurement, it allows for an unprecedented level of customization, from target curves to crossover settings. The browser interface, although in need of some usability enhancements, provides a comprehensive platform for audiophiles to tweak and refine their system's sound.

Performance

In performance, the Trinnov Altitude 24 is a tour de force. The audio quality post-calibration is nothing short of extraordinary, with a caveat: there is an initial processing delay when playing some content. Additionally, while the processor excels with up to 96kHz content, it does face some restrictions with higher-resolution formats. These minor blemishes, however, do not detract from its overall exceptional performance.

Pros and Cons Recap

The Trinnov Altitude 24 is a powerhouse, with its high channel processing capabilities and room optimization technology. The support for a wide array of audio formats and extensive customization options further cement its status as a top-tier processor. However, it's important to consider the setup complexity, the initial audio processing delay, and the limitations with high-resolution content when making a decision.

Price and Value Proposition

Given its premium pricing, the Trinnov Altitude 24 is aimed squarely at the high-end market. When compared to other processors in its class, it stands out for its advanced room correction capabilities and sheer processing power. For those who can leverage its full potential, the investment is justified, offering a level of customization and audio quality that few can match.

Final Thoughts

The Trinnov Altitude 24 Channel Surround Processor is a formidable contender in the realm of high-end audio. Its exceptional precision, coupled with the ability to tailor sound to any room, makes it an attractive proposition for the dedicated audiophile. While not without its complexities and nuances, for those who demand the best and are willing to navigate its initial setup, the Trinnov Altitude 24 could be the ultimate centerpiece of a state-of-the-art home theater system.
