The founders of Trinnov and Auro Technologies know each other well, having been at the forefront of immersive sound research and development dating back to the early 2000s.

Auro-3D, up to 13.1 channel configuration has been available on the Altitude32 since 2015. The Auro-Matic upmixer, highly popular among Altitude owners for music playback is also supported for all inputs.


Trinnov Optimizer

Trinnov's world-renowned Loudspeaker/Room Optimizer is recognized as best-in-class by users and reviewers across the professional, commercial cinema and high-end home audio worlds. Introduced to the pro audio market in 2006, its revolutionary solution was quickly embraced by many of the most demanding music, broadcast and post-production sound engineers.

Optimizer technology is now used in nearly 2,000 studios across the globe with nearly 10,000 high-performance installations worldwide.

This same technology, enhanced and refined over the years, is at the heart of the Altitude. To this day, the Optimizer remains the most powerful and flexible calibration system available.


Step by step wizard

First-time users will find the Altitude Wizard an invaluable tool for setup and calibration.

This onboard software guides the integrator through the entire process, step-by-step.

From configuring the speaker layout, setting up the input and outputs, to the microphone setup and calibration, the Wizard greatly simplifies the process of getting the Altitude up and running.


Exclusive 3D Rempapping Technology

In real-world rooms, we can’t always place speakers where we should. And in any case, Dolby, DTS, and Auro each have a different idea of where they should go. Trinnov’s exclusive, patented Remapping is the only solution.

During calibration, Trinnov’s unique 3D microphone precisely maps the location of each loudspeaker in the room regarding distance, azimuth, and elevation.

When decoding a particular soundtrack, we know the intended placement of each of the various sound elements. Then Remapping, taking the reality of the room into account, ‘remaps’ errant sounds to the proper locations by using adjacent speakers and the principle of stereo imaging.


Unique Bass Management

The Bass Management solution in the Altitude gives users the most sophisticated tool available for managing low frequencies.

Complete flexibility regarding high and low pass frequencies, filter types, and filter slopes is just the beginning. The low-frequency content of any channel can be fed to any combination of subwoofers, and there is no limitation to the number of subwoofer channels other than the number of available outputs.

Going further, Trinnov's unique intermediate bass management system is ideal for immersive systems using smaller height channel speakers. It can redirect low frequencies not just to subwoofers, but from a speaker with limited bass capability to the closest, more-capable speaker, before sending the lowest frequencies to the subs.


HDMI Unbound

HDMI and its evolving standards continue to create challenges for manufacturers, integrators and end users. Rest assured that the Altitude philosophy of sustainability applies to HDMI. The Altitude’s modular hardware design ensures that future developments of the HDMI standard will not make the processor obsolete. All Altitudes will be upgradeable to HDMI 2.1.

Today, Trinnov's proprietary software platform enables users to monitor and analyze all incoming and outgoing HDMI data directly on the Altitude, in addition to providing unique tools that can address HDMI incompatibility issues.


Remote Access

Through its Paris-based server, Trinnov enables remote access to any processor connected to the Internet.

Integrators can remotely access each processor they have installed, with full control of all parameters, thus eliminating the need to be on site to adjust a customer’s system or to diagnose problems.

In addition, the Trinnov factory support team, based in the United States and France, and acknowledged as among the best in the industry, also has remote access to provide higher-level remote assistance and troubleshooting.


The CEDIA Designer

The CEDIA Designer (TCD) is a powerful online design tool that allows integrators and system designers to create not only technically impeccable cinema designs in a matter of minutes, but also a complete set of support documents and aesthetic room renderings.

Trinnov Altitude processors and Amplitude amplifiers are fully supported in the TCD software, enabling designers to integrate the Altitude in the most complex speaker layouts in a matter of minutes.

TCD integrates Trinnov's exclusive recommendation for speaker placement by default.


Award-winning Platform

Trinnov’s exclusive, award-winning software platform is at the heart of the Altitude16. Industry organizations and publications have honored it for its new features and continuous improvements, delivered to owners at no cost. Over time, this effectively makes their Altitudes new products.

Our Trustpilot reviews


A truly excellent service both from the initial contact via the website chat to a personalised telephone call to confirm the chosen product and delivery options. Great and many thanks.


These guys were so helpful! They had a fairly rare item in stock, packaged it up and got it to me in 2 days... very friendly and professional service, would recommend to anyone.


Great shop for vinyl and all things hifi and Audio visual. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and won’t try and sell you what you don’t need . Recommended!


help line with somebody who was human and helpful when I got stuck setting the amp up. 


I know it's habitual to shop with the big names like Currys. But you won't find anywhere near this level of service from them, and I'll be sure to keep Holburn in mind for the future. Can't recommend them enough!
