ADA Adds 8-Zone Preamp/Controller
Cinema Suite allows for complete control over the entire home theater -- as well as 8 other audio zones in the house.

At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, Audio Design Associates (ADA) debuted their new Cinema Suite 8-zone pre-amplifier / controller.

View more of our CES special coverage The Cinema Suite is a home theater preamplifier that is similar in operation to the company’s Suite 7.1 surround sound preamp and in connectivity to the company’s Cinema Rhapsody Mach III pre-amplifier. Located on Cinema Suite’s front panel is a 4-inch color TFT touchscreen that permits control of both the home theater and 8 stereo zones. 

The Cinema Suite features the latest in ADA’s digital signal processing, promising uncolored and true sound from both digital and analog components. The “home theater” section of the unit includes ADA trademark features such as Double-Default Mode Auto-Detection and numerous default presets.

Cinema Suite’s “multi-room” aspect incorporates features found only in ADA’s “luxury” suite of multi-room systems including bass, midrange and treble tones controls, stereo enhancement and active loudness contour. Each room has its own turn-on acoustical preset.

ADA says that the Cinema Suite is ideally matched with ADA multi-channel power amplifiers such as the PTM-8150 (8-channel 7.1 power amplifier) for the home theater zone and the PTM-1645 (8-zone, 16-channel power amplifier) for the other 8-zones.
