AV Receiver 16 channel



Like any true conductor who draws the best out of his orchestra, Astral 16 draws the very best out of high-fidelity and in-wall/in-ceiling loudspeakers by perfectly coordinating all the components within a sensational Home Cinema installation.

Integrating a Class D Pascal Audio amplifier, Astral 16 has 16 channels, of which 12 are amplified and 4 are pre-amplified (balanced XLR outputs) and dedicated entirely to audio (filtering, equalization, bass management, etc.).

This rock-solid foundation is your official invitation to an immersive journey through images and sound of unrivaled quality (sampling frequency supported up to 192 kHz).


Astral 16 covers all audio formats: Dolby Atmos®, DTS:X™, Auro-3D® etc.

Equipped with technology that allows adjustments based on room characteristics (Room calibration, with Dirac Live®) and delivered with a calibrated measurement microphone, Astral 16 can be fine-tuned to suit all possible acoustical environments and desires.


Astral 16 is compatible with Control4, Crestron, Elan, Savant and RTI.

It benefits from the potential of these leading interfaces to provide remote control over your entire system.


Astral 16 comes with an app available on the App Store (via iPad) to drive the system you want room by room, as well as technical support (Remote Monitoring) for equipment diagnostics at any time.
