Datasat - RS20i - Professional Home Cinema Audio Processor

Datasat - RS20i - Professional Home Cinema Audio Processor

Built by audiophiles for audiophiles, no expense has been spared in producing the most versatile, customizable and feature-rich audio processor available today in the high-end consumer space.

With sleek, elegant looks, reference-grade audio quality and outstanding features the Datasat RS20i is the leading choice for any audio enthusiast. The Datasat RS20i makes an attractive component of any luxury home entertainment system.

With great looks comes real power.

Developed on the same Datasat platform as their audio processor systems for professional cinema, the RS20i delivers a new dimension in surround sound excellence. Audio is transparent and true-to-source to ensure that the listening experience is every bit as stunning as the visuals.

Designed by the Datasat engineering team, the circuitry design and audio quality are second to none. Including such features such as memory profile settings, stackable multiple EQs, room optimization/correction and extensive automation controls (not previously seen in high-end audio processors) the RS20i is a cut above the competition.

Dialog is crystal clear, sound tracks sound like they are being played from the original mixing desk and features such as HDMI v2.0b mean the RS20i can also seamlessly handle 4K video content.

The RS20i is a professional sound solution. Once configured, it is easy to manage with all the power of a cinema audio processor available at your fingertips through your smartphone, tablet or laptop.

Datasat’s entrance into the high-end consumer market is a natural progression based upon its many years in the professional cinema market.
