The Big Screen A/V Experience

Designed for the discerning first-time reference-class user, our easily configurable high performance multichannel A/V preamplifier delivers brilliant home cinema in every conceivable situation.

Music lovers with sensitive ears are only too aware of the potential hazards for sound waves in unfavourably shaped rooms. This problem is even more critical in home-cinema applications – a shot fired on the screen reaches the ear, distorted, a split-second later. That was why we decided to build a multichannel AV preamplifier providing the ideal response to the acoustics of any room. Other systems expect you to put up with imprecise adjustments or confusing automatic systems, whereas the MAP I boasts a professional loudspeaker, delay, bass and equalization management enabling minute adjustments. With our free CARMA software, you can conveniently test the MAP I on your PC or Mac to produce a preview showing how your living-room will be miraculously transformed into a scientifically redesigned movie theatre.


Surround Sound Formats

MAP I processes all digital home-cinema and surround-sound formats, including Dolby Pro Logic IIx, DTS 96/24, and even – over the Audionet HighBit interface – SACD and DVD audio. Optimum playback of up to 7.1 channels is therefore possible.


A True Performer

MAP I is our universal decoder system for high-quality music and home-cinema applications. The slim 70mm A/V preamplifier allows the playback of 2 to 8 channels, offers unique setting and adjustment possibilities, possesses state-of-the-art interface technology and is architecturally prepared for future demands via software and hardware updates.

Like every Audionet machine, the MAP I guarantees a unique sound performance thanks to its own uncompromising combination of audiophile quality and state-of-the-art home-cinema technology. You can look forward to a maximum of natural music rendition, the finest spatial resolution of the soundscape, and outstanding visual reproduction.

AP I Is Leading in Technology and Equipment

The MAP I decodes all digital home cinema and surround sound formats, including Dolby Pro Logic IIx, DTS 96/24 and via Audionets HighBit interface even DVD-Audio and SACD. This makes it possible to drive up to 7.1 channels. The unique delay-, speaker- and bass-management is freely adjustable in all parameters. So, every speaker ensemble can be configured exactly. The high-performance digital parametric equalizer of the MAP I corrects disturbances caused by your listening room. Audionet’s “intelligent sampling technology and double-precision-bass management” guarantees the best sound performance.


MAP I Has Unique Interconnection and Update Capabilities

With its numerous interconnection and update capabilities, the MAP I can cope with any number of tasks. Just some of its features: seven digital inputs for sound processing and DVI in and outputs for video processing.

The optional progressive scan card converts interlaced video formats (e.g. from VCRs or SAT receivers) to high-quality full-frame pictures for beamers, plasma TVs etc. With the DVI option it is also possible to output this progressive video data in digital format. The controller is flashable. Updates are easy and the MAP I is always up-to-date. A USB controller and connectors are integrated for future applications. A turntable? No problem! With the high-value phono module, the MAP I can also handle this source and offers delicate sound reproduction, even in surround sound!


MAP I, Even Laities Can Set Up This A/V Preamplifier

The MAP I has a comprehensible and intuitive handling concept. In connection with the four-line display and the on-screen-menu, all necessary settings are easily configurable. The MAP I recognizes the incoming signals and automatically chooses the right decoder, rendering a manual change between the different formats obsolete. With the integrated Audionet HighBit interface, high-resolution two- or multichannel signals from DVD audio or SACD can be received and processed in digital format. This can be assumed for all settings and configurations. The MAP I has a high-performance equalizer that can effectively correct the disturbing influences of your listening room. Using Audionet’s intuitive analysis and correction software CARMA, even laymen can achieve near-professional results.

Area DVD

“[…] the combination of such a sound and the perfect methods for adapting to the available space and loudspeaker used is not to be found amongst any other product either present or planned […] The MAP I is truly a masterpiece; the greatest acoustic sensation since records began. […] providing the best-sounding surround sound stage
available for under 5.000 Euros. This is truly the best value for money amongst all the high end devices on offer.”



“[…] the MAP I is a HIGH-END decoder of the best type available at a sensational price. […] Our congratulations!”



“The Audionet MAP I makes the sensation perfect: there has never been such a good sounding AV preamplifier available at this price – even the most difficult-to satisfy hi-fi fans are more than happy.”



“Something of which Audionet can be deservedly proud: the first sound with such conviction that we had no choice but to give top marks. ‘Made in Germany’ can compete with the best in the world. A German hi-fi craftsman has become the top choice for audiovision.”
