IOTAVX rocks the AV processor market: first-class acoustic quality and technical high quality for almost 800 EUR
Those who can do without Dolby Atmos and DTS: X will find an unrivaled offer for just below EUR 800. Although you get a rather economical equipment overall, you get a sound quality that can easily measure up to twice as much: The IOTAVX pre-amp shines without restriction. They form a real "dream team" together with the seven-channel power amplifier from the same company that we have already tested extensively. By the way - not only technically and acoustically, but also optically, the components form a first-class unit. If we add up the prices of the pre- and final stage, we come to around EUR 2,000 - and that's why you play in the "Champions League". A direct hit. - Review (German)

With a lot of power
The IOTAVX AVXP1 multi-channel power amplifier and the 7.1-channel AVX1 preamplifier give a truly convincing duet. In terms of sound, they enrich the home theater ensemble with powerful impulses and clearly defined nuances. In addition, their massive workmanship and ease of use have a positive impact. On top of that, during our test we were impressed by the complex configurability of the processor. For this price, the technology is superbly manufactured.- Review (German)
The IOTAVX AVX1 is the successor to the highly praised AV1, a powerful 7.1-channel home theater preamplifier. It now also offers the processing of 4k UHD HDR videos as well as all current 5.1 and 7.1 channel surround sound formats. Dolby Vision is also supported. The AVX1 has six HDMI inputs, including three with HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2, which support 4k UHD High Dynamic Area (HDR) videos. Two HDMI outputs are available for output to image devices, one of which also supports 4k UHD HDR videos, so that, for example, a television and a projector can be connected in parallel. In addition, several analog and digital audio inputs are available to allow you to flexibly connect your audio sources. The AVX1 can be operated using the controls on the front of the device or using the supplied infrared remote control. Intuitive menu control is guaranteed via the large and easy-to-read VFD display on the front or the clear and concise screen display. To ensure a superb audio quality, an absolute high-end DAC (Cirrus Logic CS42528) is used which can normally only be found in devices well above 4.000€.
The IOTAVX AVX1 is the perfect choice if you are looking for a way to improve the sound of an AV receiver based home theater system. This processor ensures a high-end sound experience with components of the best quality. A special feature is the latest generation of the EQFlex room correction system, which automatically adjusts the speakers and, if necessary, the subwoofer to the room and thus always ensures the best sound. In addition, the AVX1 provides a parametric equalizer with which the sound can be adapted exactly to the respective room and your own wishes. 11 programmable equalizers are available for each of the seven full-range channels. The bass range can be adjusted using three equalizers. Coupled with our IOTAVX AVXP1 7-channel power amplifier or other powerful power amplifiers, the AVX1 delivers a sound quality that goes far beyond the price quoted. In the field of image playback, the AVX1 offers fast and clean switching, for both HD and 4k UHD HDR videos.
In addition to the digital and analog connection options, music can be streamed directly from the smartphone or another Bluetooth-enabled device to the AVX1 by using the optional Bluetooth receiver module. This module is plugged directly into the back of the AVX1 and supports the latest Bluetooth 4.0 AptX audio standard (CD quality).
The IOTAVX AVX1 not only sounds fantastic, we also manufacture it with a heavy steel housing and high-quality components. This is how we ensure that you can enjoy your IOTAVX AVX1 for a long time.
