AVS Forum -  First impressions of our I.ISP 3D.16.12 Integrated Immersive Sound Processor, ahead of its official review

We have shipped out the first processors to journalists for review, so you can expect some product reviews to appear online soon!
The first-ever impression is sounding really good though and we could not refrain for sharing this with all of you...

AVS FORUM - I.ISP 3D.16.12 Integrated Immersive Sound Processor - First Impressions:

StormAudio I.ISP 3D.16.12 16-Channel Integrated AV Processor Hands-On

Folks, this is one of the most exciting hands-on experiences I've had all year. This is the first StormAudio I.ISP to go out to a reviewer. And just in case you are wondering what that means, here's the scoop. The I.ISP is a $15,900 (MSRP) 16-channel integrated AV processor that features twelve 200-watt amplified channels. Yes, it's a beast.

I first saw the I.ISP at CES 2017 and instantly fell in love with its logical and clear browser-based interface. Most impressively, this processor includes Dirac Live processing for all channels, and is capable of handling a six elevation channels for next-level 3D audio immersion. This integrated AV processor can handle Auro-3D, Dolby Atmos, and DTS:X with ease.

The twelve class-D amps in the chassis are rated to deliver 200 watts per channel with 0.1% THD from 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz, all channels driven. That's a ton of power and for space-challenged installations this device can replace a whole rack of amps. For this reason, the I.ISP is not equipped with preamp outputs for the twelve amplified channels. The remaining four channels do feature balanced XLR outputs.

Soon, I will show you how easy it is to create highly customized and optimized system setups with StormAudio's system. It's super slick and I can say that my first exposure to its capabilities has spoiled me. Stay tuned for more, it's already up and running in a 7.1.4 configuration, which is soon to become a 7.2.6 system (with five physical subs). This is serious business!

Also, for this unit, I promise to write a formal review when I'm done with the hands-on. I've got the I.ISP for one month, and CEDIA is just weeks away, so you can expect to see an update here really soon. This is, bar none, the most awesome AVR I've ever seen.

CES 2017 -  I.ISP 3D.16.12 Integrated Preamp Processor named as Best of Show by AVSForum

January 12, 2017 - AVSForum's Mark Henniger visited the StormAudio Exhibit Suite during CES 2017 and was impressed to see this mighty AVR in detail.
It was not until Mark had a sit-down session with StormAudio's Senior Vice President Yves Trélohan, that he fully understood how capable StormAudio's gear really is.

Based on what he saw and heard, the I.ISP 3D.16.12 sits above the flagships of the major AVR makers in terms of specs, capability and flexibility. With 16 channels - of which 12 are amplified - the I.ISP 3D.16.12 is StormAudio's latest product and builds on the AV processors it launched at CEDIA. Its twelve class-D amplified channels are all spec'd to deliver 200 watts into 8 ohms--that's all channels driven--from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, with 0.1% distortion. That figure doubles to 400 watts per channel going into 4 ohms. There's no mass-market AVR that can claim to pack so much firepower into its chassis. Four balanced outputs can be used with external amps and/or subs to bring the total channel count this unit offers to 16.
