Savant Music Does It All

can be connected to any speakers, including Savant’s full line of
high-performance architectural loudspeakers and sound bars as part of a
single room music system or for the entire home. This powerful, 125 Watt
per channel amplifier will deliver sparklingly clear music to any room

outputs make the amp plug-and-play with other entertainment devices such

The Savant SmartAmp is fully upgradable to a complete Savant smart home

Savant’s Amazing Micro Aperture Speaker Technology
Savant’s self-powered Micro Aperture architectural speakers use PoE
technology (Power over Ethernet) to drastically reduce the complexity
associated with distributed audio system design and installation. Each
powered speaker utilizes a Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) driver, which
delivers exceptional sensitivity and wide dispersion. Each PoE speaker
contains a highly efficient amplifier with DSP to optimize performance.
These self-powered speakers not only reduce installation time, they also
deliver superb sound quality throughout any space because content
remains in the digital domain from source to speaker.
