Middleton, WI—Designed for medium zone-based audio distribution applications, the Intelix Audisey Athena combines the flexibility of a true matrix mixer with digital signal processing and up to sixteen individual amplifiers—all in a single three rack space package. Plus, the Athena’s internal digital amplifiers feature 93% energy efficient performance with load sensing capability, providing powerful performance with low heat loss.
“The Athena is an exciting product,” explains Mike Konkle, Intelix Chief Technology Officer. “Intelix’s goal was to provide the audio-visual industry with a unique, powerful matrix unlike any previously released. We started with the basic components of AV system design—matrix mixing, digital signal processing, amplification—and combined them into a single, intuitive chassis. What’s more, we incorporated smart features which matter to most real-world users, including extremely efficient Class D digital amplifiers. Energy efficiency is an important issue, one which Intelix is pleased to incorporate into our designs.”
Available in 8 inputs by 8 outputs (Athena-8) or 16 inputs by 16 outputs (Athena-16), the Intelix Audisey Athena features built-in audio preamplification, phantom power, input signal processing, true matrix mixing, output signal processing, and either eight or sixteen channels of independent power amplification with up to 100 watts per channel.
The Athena provides users with up to 128 system presets, 16 input DSP presets, and 16 output DSP presets, all of which are controllable via the front panel, USB, serial, logic, or internet connection.
