Crestron Electronics, a global manufacturer of electronics solutions for the residential and commercial markets, has introduced its DM NAX 4-Zone Streaming Pre-Amplifier and a new in-wall subwoofer.
The DM NAX 4-Zone Streaming Pre-Amplifier employs Crestron’s AV-over-IP technologies, and the company emphasizes the component is its first-ever preamplifier. The new Ultimate Subwoofer natively pairs with the new preamplifier to augment Crestron whole-house AV systems or it can be used in home theaters to add low frequencies to today’s immersive audio systems.
“Both the Ultimate In-Wall Subwoofer and the expansion of our DM NAX solutions help us further our goal of providing integrators the most comprehensive suite of home audio solutions possible,” states Michael Short, director of residential marketing, Crestron.
“These products natively integrate with each other and with the broader Crestron Home platform giving integrators the ability to hit the ground running, whether they are starting a new project or scaling the smart ecosystem for an existing client.”

Crestron points out the introduction of both products helps to round out its residential line of audio solutions. The multizone streaming preamplifier is a 1U-high component that incorporates the company’s AoIP (audio over IP) technologies to distribute audio throughout a home, and it natively integrates into Crestron Home, the company’s state-of-the-art home control and automation platform.
The N.J.-based manufacturer points out the new subwoofer represents its latest collaboration with Origin Acoustics and with the addition of the Ultimate In-Wall Subwoofer, integrators now have a choice of more than a dozen architectural and landscape loudspeakers to select from Crestron’s product line.
According to Crestron, when the Ultimate In-Wall Subwoofer is used with loudspeakers from its Ultimate or Reference product lines, integrators can create immersive audio experiences for their clients that includes deep bass. The new in-wall subwoofer comes with a paintable grille that allows integrators to blend the product into a range of home environments, and it installs through an easy-to-use, dog-leg mounting system.
The DM NAX 4-Zone Streaming Pre-Amplifier also provides options such as interoperability with AES67 and Audinate’s Dante digital audio platform. Crestron emphasizes the new preamplifier uses hardwired connections that do not require custom network architecture or hardware, and through its interoperability options the unit can be used to specify an entire home’s audio needs.
