Basalte Adds New A3 Module to Asano Family of KNX Multiroom Audio Systems at ISE 2015

Asano is a decentralized multi-room audio system designed by the Belgian company Basalte. It brings crystal clear music in every room of a building and has been developed for use with KNX. The system combines an unseen flexibility with a smooth and sleek design.

Asano allows you to freely locate your sources and amplifiers anywhere in the building and carries out ultra-clear sound to every zone in a digitally transparent and uncompressed manner. The Asano system is unique because of its flexibility and scalability. The system can connect a virtually unlimited number of zones and up to 250 sources. The Asano product group is a modular system that consists of various devices. The Asano P1 and the Asano P4 are stereo amplifiers for respectively 1 and 4 zones. Asano N1 is a network node to connect any source to the Asano system. Asano uses uncompressed 24 bit audio over Ethernet to transport audio between the various zones.

The system now has been extended with the A3 module, that allows you to integrate third-party amplifiers such as surround receivers in the Asano concept. It is also possible to integrate active speakers, like those of Bang & Olufsen. With A3 you can connect up to 3 zones and two local sources. If a source is connected to one of the inputs, this source immediately becomes a source for all the other zones of the Asano system.

Basalte already won two prestigious awards with Asano: the “IF product design award” and the “Reddot Award”. These labels are internationally amongst the most important prizes for innovative product design and are for Basalte a recognition for their continuous work towards simplicity, quality and beautiful design.
