AudioControl Launches Concert AVR-6 & AVR-8 Ultra HD 4K Home Theater Receivers, Delivering the Ultimate Audiophile AV Entertainment Nirvana That Movie Lovers Crave!

Seattle, WA – AudioControl, the U.S. award winning designer of home theater processors and amplifiers, today announced the launch of their new Concert AVR-6 and Concert AVR-8 Ultra HD 4K home theater receivers. AudioControl’s new AVR-6 and AVR-8 receivers deliver a visually stunning entertainment experience, designed by a company with nearly 40 years of making some of the best audio and video products in the world.
Behind the striking contemporary visual design, the Concert AVR-8 benefits from the high-end audio performance that AudioControl is renowned for. Its powerful high-current 7 x 200 watts per channel theater amplifier creates a truly incredible audio platform that turns watching a movie in your living room, media space or theater into a movie lover’s ‘nirvana’. The Concert AVR-6 also benefits from the same high performing audio and video platform as the Concert AVR-8, powering its seven-channel amplifier at 100 watts per channel into 8 ohms.

AudioControl CEO Alex Camara commented, “AudioControl has been at the forefront of designing and manufacturing high performance, quality audio and video products for over 35 years. Our new Concert receivers deliver an incredible audiophile experience, combined with the latest in 4K Ultra HD video processing, that results in the ultimate viewing and listening experience for movie lovers, not prepared to compromise on their passion for the highest quality entertainment experience”.
