At ISE 2018, Basalte introduced its Asano M3 amplifier. Asano is a decentralised multiroom audio system and directly integrates with KNX. The new M3 is the latest addition to Asano's amplifier range.
This amplifier hosts 2 stereo zones with an output of 2 x 50W per zone. You can additionally connect a third-party amplifier or surround receiver to the digital SPDIF output. It integrates with KNX through the Basalte music server. Included features are direct Bluetooth streaming, multiple source inputs and custom notifications.
Thanks to its slim design and elegant look, M3 can easily be put near a source in your home. This helps to reduce cable lengths and costs. You can connect a TV to the optical input and add an analogue source through the 3.5 mm mini jack input.
M3 is controlled by the Basalte S4 music server and supports audio-over-Ethernet.
