The Crestron® AV Receiver HD-XSPA is a powerful surround sound processor, multi-channel amplifier, and DigitalMedia® room box in one that makes it easy to enjoy spectacular, full-bodied 4K Ultra High-Definition 7.1 Surround Sound audio in a room as part of an integrated Crestron DigitalMedia whole-house 4K AV system.

Integrated by Design

The Crestron® AV Receiver HD-XSPA connects directly to a DM switch, eliminating the need for a separate DigitalMedia receiver in the room. A full range of built-in control ports, including RS-232, IR, Ethernet, and relay, allows for programmable control of local devices. CEC pass-through allows control of many devices via HDMI®.

Pure 4K support

The HD-XSPA fully supports 4K Ultra HD sources and displays through 4 HDMI inputs, the DigitalMedia input, and the HDMI output, so it works flawlessly as part of a Crestron DigitalMedia distribution network. It decodes all the latest digital surround formats, including Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio; and full input connectivity is provided for all types of digital and analog sources, including Blu-ray Disc® players, HDTV receivers, game consoles, computers, and media servers.

Big performance, small form factor

Featuring a high-power, 8-channel amplifier, the HD-XSPA delivers professional-grade performance (140 Watts per channel @ 8 Ohms; 240 Watts at 4 Ohms). It includes a powered sub-channel, making it easy to install an in-wall subwoofer (such as a Crestron ASPIRE® IWS82) without impacting living space. Compact in design at just 2U, the HD-XSPA saves space in the equipment rack and integrates easily with other Crestron systems and AV equipment.

Audio that goes anywhere

In addition to providing spectacular 7.1 surround sound, the HD-XSPA simultaneously provides a 2-channel stereo downmix to feed to your whole house audio distribution system. In other words, now you can hear all the action from the big game anywhere in the house – not just rooms with surround sound. You can even allocate two channels of the integrated power amp for a downmix stereo feed to an adjacent space, like a bathroom or patio, leaving 5.1 for the main zone.
