DetailsAVI Neutron 5 2.1 system - a stylish 2.1 system with digital, USB and analogue inputs to get the most out of your multimedia For some years now TV and home cinema systems have been driving the market, but people are beginning to shift away from the clutter of surround sound, and there are also huge developments in On Demand TV - such as the BBC iPlayer - and film rentals from Apple TV. Many devices combine photography, computing and TV into one single home media centre and in part account for the decreasing popularity of hi fi separates that don't dovetail well with the rest of peoples media. They won't present a slideshow of your holiday photos, play Youtube or other downloaded video and music that everyone now wants in one place and looking good. Another problem for separates is that the metal casework is often the most expensive part, and makes them bad value. Therefore we decided to take a different approach. ADM9s were the beginning and now the ADM9.1s are selling in greater quantities than everything we've ever done before including our multi award-winning Neutrons and the similarly successful Lab Series Integrated Amplifier. We've recently introduced the Neutron 5s and they were never intended to be alone, they were designed as part of of a new system that gets rid of expensive separates boxes, costs a fraction of the price and performs at least as well as a conventional system costing three times the price. What you get is a subwoofer containing a very high power 10î drive unit, and the latest Wolfson DAC with a special digital receiver chip that makes jitter negligible, thus rendering it independent of source. Some argue that this DAC is the best made. There is also a remote-controlled six input preamplifier and three 100 Watt power amps: one for the subwoofer and two for the Neutron 5s. A digital display indicates the selected input, volume level and subwoofer set-up. The six inputs include one analogue, three optical digital, one coaxial digital, and one USB digital input. As a source all you need is Sonos, Apple TV, pS3, Sky Plus or a FreeSat PVR, and you've got the lot and saved a fortune. The ADM9.1 + its Sub costs £1875, so the Neutron 5 2.1 is our entry level system at £1299. Another key advantage to the system is that all variables from the source to the speaker are known and addressed by Martin Grindrod our engineer, so we can be certain of the sound quality. The mix and match nature of hi fi separates would often create unpredictable results, as well as additional hassle and cost.
