datasat processors and amps

designed for the luxury home cinema market, audio products from datasat combine style and elegance with power and control


Leaders in the world of digital cinema audio processors for nearly 20 years, Datasat pioneered the development of digital audio for the cinema industry. They have been delivering high quality, immersive digital surround sound to theaters worldwide and they're now bringing the same innovative, professional digital audio processing technology into home cinema.

RS20i Processor

Datasat RS20i

The Datasat RS20i is the first home cinema audio processor to be built on the same technology platform used in professional cinema to deliver unbeatable sound quality.

Built by audiophiles for audiophiles, no expense has been spared in producing the most versatile, customizable and feature-rich audio processor available today in the high end consumer space.

With sleek, elegant looks designed by Neal Feay Company, an award-winning designer of consumer electronics, the Datasat RS20i makes an attractive component of any luxury home entertainment system.

Developed on the same Datasat platform as our audio processor systems for professional cinema, the RS20i delivers a new dimension in surround sound excellence. Audio is transparent and true-to-source to ensure that the listening experience is every bit as stunning as the visuals.

Designed by the Datasat engineering team, the circuitry design and audio quality is second to none. Including such features such as memory profile settings, stackable multiple EQs, room optimisation/correction and extensive automation controls (not previously seen in high end audio processors) the RS20i is a cut above the competition.

Dialog is crystal clear, sound tracks sound like they are being played from the original mixing desk and features such as HDMI v1.4a mean the RS20i can also seamlessly handle 3D video content.

The RS20i is a professional sound solution. Once configured, it is easy to manage with all the power of a cinema audio processor available at your fingertips through your smartphone, iPad or laptop.

16 channels of digital audio

With 16 channels of digital audio available, the RS20i supports up to 85 digital and analog inputs as well as 34 audio outputs. This amount of outputs allows the audio processor to accommodate all surround sound formats currently available - including true 3D sound. In addition, three expansion slots allow for the easy addition of extra channels in the future.

Extensive equalization functionality

The RS20i comes with 31 bands of third octave and three user-adjustable bands of parametric equalization on every channel. In addition, each channel includes low, high and bandpass filters to deliver a stunning clarity of sound.

Superior punch bass management

Advanced bass management features include full and user-adjustable bass control on each individual screen and surround speakers. The RS20i supports up to 4 sub-woofers with your home cinema system to enable enhanced surround settings such as 11.1, 12.2 or 12.4.

Market-leading room optimization

The RS20i is the only home cinema audio solution to feature the market-leading Dirac Live® room optimization technology. It delivers the most advanced impulse response correction available to deliver the widest listening sweet spot where the audio is tuned to create the most natural and immersive listening experience for the individual listener. Individual channel and global delays mean that you can position speakers to provide the most natural listening based on a central viewing point.

20 memory presets

The essential elements of your home cinema audio can be quickly and easily saved. Elements such as room equalization, sound levels, and input and output set-ups are captured for every type of content that you wish to enjoy through your home cinema system - movies, music, HDTV or live events. These memory presets can be easily transferred to a memory stick for safe storage and retrieval.

Wide-ranging support for content types

The RS20i supports all the major audio decoders from Dolby and DTS as well as an extensive choice of digital, analog and HDMI audio and video inputs. This allows your home cinema system to accommodate an extremely broad array of content types including 3D video passthrough.

Ease of management

The RS20i presents you with a number of features to make management flexible and convenient. In addition to a range of remote control options - including smartphone, tablet and laptop support - the system includes Ethernet and RS232 connects with up to 20 user-defined set-up and operational profiles.

RA7300 - 7 channel Power Amplifiers

Datasat RA7300

The Datasat RA7300 Multi-Channel Power Amplifiers bring a new level of quality and flexibility to high-end home theatre and multi-channel music systems. Perfect for anything from small media systems to dedicated top of the line home cinemas or even to outfit an entire home or estate, its advanced circuitry and careful design delivers one of the industry's most powerful, versatile and quietest power amplifiers.

The fully balanced differential design of the RA7300 doubles amplifier speed (slew rate) while reducing noise by 50%. Dual thermal sensors control very low speed fans with substantial heat sinks. The fan only operates when program material requires additional cooling to ensure fan noise is always masked by the content. In addition, dual DC servos ensure DC offset is minimised and thermal track transistors maintain the amplifier at its optimum bias point independent of its temperature.

The result is consistently low distortion and extremely quiet operation that provides highly accurate and refined music and soundstage reproduction. The RA7300 can support the latest multi-channel digital surround sound formats for outstanding audio quality even in the most demanding operating conditions.

The RA7300 is designed to be versatile and is rated for 4 and 8 ohm loads. With a rated output of 300 watts RMS into seven channels at 8 ohms, the RA7300 is powerful enough to deliver consistently excellent performance in any system.

RA2400 - 2 channel Stereo Power Amplifier

Datasat RA2400

The Datasat RA2400 Stereo Power Amplifier combines innovative design with advanced circuitry to deliver outstanding audio performance. Ideal for high quality home theatre installations, sound reproduction is refined and pure. Datasat has produced one of the industry's quietest and most powerful 2 channel stereo amplifiers.

The fully balanced differential design of the RA2400 doubles amplifier speed (slew rate) while reducing noise by 50%. It uses current feedback to increase amplifier speed while dual mono design ensures each channel is completely independent with separate power supplies. This minimises crosstalk, noise and distortion.

The Datasat RA2400 features a unique amplifier design using 940 small storage capacitors situated close to the output transistors for faultless operation. With up to 20 output devices per channel, each channel of the RA2400 has its own specifically designed bridge rectifier for smooth AC to DC conversion.

Any number of Datasat RA2400 amplifiers can be operated without thermal issues -  the amplifiers are maintained at their optimum bias point independent of their temperature. All parts within the amplifier have no thermal limitations. It's fully integrated power supply for the input stage features 7 independent regulators for continuous operation.

Delivering extended versatility, the Datasat RA2400 produces 400 watts of power rated at 8 ohm loads. For high power performance at low impedance, it is capable of continuous operation at 600 watts rated at 4 ohms.

The RA2400 and RA7300 amplifiers are designed to complement Datasat's RS20i high-end audio processor providing the ultimate listening experience for luxury home cinema.
