A Harmonious Pair—The PROCISE PSPHD and its companion PROAMP amplifier
possess the unique ability to operate as one, affording functionality unattainable
from any other preamp/amp combination. Naturally, the PROAMP delivers a
robust supply of power to compel any 7-channel speaker system to its utmost
performance. (It looks pretty awesome with the PSPHD as well.) But also,
through a simple Ethernet connection, the two components become paired,
enabling seamless control and monitoring of the amplifier through the PSPHD’s
front panel without any need for a control system. Even the output level of each
amp channel is conveyed on the face of the PSPHD via analog style meters.
As part of a complete Crestron® control system, this pairing streamlines
programming while allowing for sophisticated remote control including the ability
to view the detailed status of each amp channel from a Crestron touchpanel.
Please refer to the PROAMP spec sheet for additional information.
Dynamic Volume intelligently monitors the volume of program material momentby-moment, maintaining the desired listening level for all content while optimizing
dynamic range to preserve the overall excitement. Dynamic EQ works in
conjunction with MultEQ XT, providing sophisticated loudness correction to solve
the problem of deteriorating sound quality as volume is decreased, taking into
account both human perception and room acoustics. Together, these refinements
help to maximize your enjoyment without sudden volume bursts taking your head
off or disturbing the neighbors.
PROCISE adds one more refinement to help ensure consistent levels when
switching between sources. Every audio input on the PSPHD includes a dedicated
input compensation adjustment, allowing the installer to match the average signal
level from each TV receiver, disc player, media server, and game console in
your system.
can become an annoyance – especially given the inconsistent levels of your
typical TV commercials. Audyssey Dynamic Volume™ and Dynamic EQ® solve
this issue, letting you enjoy clear, rich, enveloping sound from all your media
sources at any listening level.
Frequency (Hz)
Crestron highly recommends the use of the Audyssey MultEQ XT feature on the
PSPHD to take full advantage of this exciting technology.
Bass Beyond Compare—Tremendous bass is essential to the enjoyment of
today’s movies, music, and video games. The PSPHD reaches an explosive new
“low,” providing three independently controllable subwoofer outputs and
advanced bass management. Support for multiple subwoofers greatly enhances
the quality of deep bass in a large room, effectively canceling room resonances so
bass is distributed more evenly.
Uniquely flexible, the PSPHD allows you to adjust the level, crossover, EQ, and
delay settings independently for each subwoofer, either manually or automatically
through MultEQ XT. Engaging the “Bass
Reinforcement” feature allows the full lowfrequency range to be routed to your main
left and right speaker pair for even greater
bass coverage. The end game is shockingly
realistic low frequency effects and tight,
gripping, defined bass at every seat.
A Refined Listening Experience—Let’s face
it, there’s a time and place for the jarring
impact of loud effects and sudden volume
swells. For your daily television viewing or
late night movie watching, these fluctuations

Professional, Precise…PROCISE!—Especially in today’s elaborate home theaters
with all their sound deadening materials, electronic noise and distortion is the last
thing you want to hear. To this end, PROCISE has been designed to produce
pristine, accurate audio — and nothing more. Our engineers employed three
separate floating-point DSPs and high-performance 24-bit 96kHz converters to
achieve exceptional dynamic range and extremely low noise. So, even during the
quietest moments of a high-resolution film soundtrack or original master
recording, you’ll be enveloped in studio-silent ambiance, every nuance revealed,
so when the sound comes up you’ll be convinced you’re a part of it.
The Ins and The Outs—One glance at its back panel reveals the incredible
amount of connectivity the PSPHD offers to handle a vast arsenal of sources. Its
six HDMI inputs provide the essential connections for all your high-definition AV
sources, including Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD players, HDTV receivers, and multimedia computers. HDMI is the key to handling 7.1 digital surround sound signals
including high bit-rate lossless audio formats like DTS-HD Master Audio™ and
Dolby® TrueHD, and also allows for switching of high-definition video up to
1080p60 with Deep Color, and computer resolutions up to WUXGA (1920x1200).
Crestron PROCISE™ PSPHD High-Definition Professional Surround Sound Processor
Additional digital audio inputs include four optical and six coaxial S/PDIF inputs,
plus professional AES/EBU to support very high-end studio and broadcast
equipment. Your analog components are also supported via eight RCA unbalanced
stereo inputs, one XLR balanced stereo input, and an eight-channel surround
sound input.
A choice of XLR balanced or RCA unbalanced outputs provides high-performance
connectivity to drive the PROAMP High-Definition Professional Surround Sound
Amplifier, or any other amplifier(s) with up to 7 channels. Additional balanced and
unbalanced outputs are provided to drive up to three powered subwoofers. Still
further balanced and unbalanced outputs are included to feed additional listening
zones or recording equipment, with
independent mono and stereo feeds each
carrying an unprocessed downmix of the entire
surround sound signal.
The Full Frontal—What was the thing you noticed when you first saw the
PSPHD? Was it the clean, inviting controls, the modern metallic accents, or its
high-resolution graphic displays? Unlike other audio processors, setting up and
operating the PSPHD from the front panel is a pleasure. Touch any button to
awaken it, and easily select your source and make adjustments with a simple turn
and tap of the left selection knob. Detailed information appears on the front panel
to eliminate any confusion. Jump directly to key menus using the dedicated
function buttons. And, oh yeah, select the bargraph analyzer or retro-style analog
meters to lend a classic touch for monitoring signal status. And by all means, turn
up that knob on the right whenever you want to impress your guests with
more volume.
A single HDMI output provides a connection for
your high-def display or projector, eliminating
the need for a separate video switcher. This
output also carries a stereo downmix of the
main surround output, perfect for sharing audio
and video from the theater with the rest of your
house via a Crestron DigitalMedia™ system.
Worry-Free HD—To ensure compatibility with
the widest range of HD content and
components, Crestron equipped the PSPHD with the most advanced HDCP
management of any signal processor in its class. At setup, every connected HDMI
device is authenticated and its key allowances verified, immediately revealing any
limitations in the system. This lets the installer reconfigure the system before
problems start, eliminating the surprise of a sudden loss of sound and picture
caused by some HDCP-encrypted or non-compliant source.
Why does HDCP matter?
As the move to digital takes hold, more and more content providers are using
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) to protect their DVDs, Blu-ray
Discs, broadcast signals, and online content against unauthorized copying.
Analog connectivity, which can’t support HDCP, is being eliminated from the
computers and AV equipment being sold today, and soon content providers will
be taking full advantage of the new digital technology to ensure only authorized
users may view their content in all its high-definition glory. Systems that don’t
support HDCP simply won’t let you display all this HD content.
Input selection on the PSPHD is fast and fluid thanks to Crestron exclusive
QuickSwitch HD technology. QuickSwitch HD maintains a constant HDCP
connection with each HDMI device in the system, eliminating the need to
re-authenticate each time a different source is selected, ensuring uninterrupted
switching between all sources.
PROCISE™ Tools—While much of the PSPHD’s initial setup and configuration
can be accomplished through its front panel, PROCISE Tools software provides
the optimum user interface for accessing all of its audio adjustments and settings.
And, although MultEQ XT does most of the work to optimize your system’s sound
quality, there is plenty of customization and tweaking available to those so
inclined. For instance, PROCISE Tools allows you to fine-tune lip-sync delay,
define the default decoding and EQ modes for each source, set up the mix inputs,
monitor signal levels, and finesse the various level, crossover, delay, and
other settings.
To those who prefer to make all their own EQ adjustments, either globally or for a
specific input or surround mode (in lieu of MultEQ XT), PROCISE Tools offers a
choice of master 6-band graphic EQ or ten independent channels of precision
6-band parametric EQ. Each EQ mode allows five presets to be saved, which can
be recalled via a control system or set to correspond with any input or
decoding mode.
The Beauty of Simplicity—The wonderful thing about Crestron is, once the
system’s installed and all the critical adjustments are made, all you need to worry
about is your choice of movie and popcorn. As part of a complete Crestron
system, all the technology within the PSPHD disappears behind the scenes, with
only the controls you want and need provided to you on your choice of Crestron
touchpanel or handheld remote.
