The Crestron® HD-XSPA makes it easy to put great surround sound in
any room of the house as part of a complete home automation and
entertainment system. Engineered with integration in mind, the HD-XSPA
delivers pure, impactful power and performance in less space than other
alternatives, and includes advanced features for sharing sources between
rooms and controlling everything with a choice of touch screens, handheld
remotes, and mobile devices. In one compact, 2-space rack-mountable
package, the HD-XSPA packs a professional-grade 7.1 surround sound
processor, high-efficiency eight-channel power amplifier, 4K Ultra HD video
switcher, DigitalMedia™ receiver, and Crestron control interface.[1]
High-Definition Professional Surround Sound Processor
Great surround sound starts with a great processor, and the HD-XSPA
employs professional grade decoding and signal processing to support the
latest 7.1 digital formats including Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby Digital® Plus, and
DTS-HD Master Audio™. Onboard DSP provides the sonic tools needed to
maximize the sound quality of each speaker within the room, including a
choice of 9-band graphic or parametric EQ, plus trim, delay, and
crossover adjustments. Additional controls are provided for main volume,
bass, treble, loudness, compression, and LFE. Advanced HDCP
management ensures trouble-free handling of copy-protected digital
HD content.
High-Powered 7.1 Surround Sound Amplifier
Despite its compact size, the HD-XSPA delivers a generous amount of
power from its onboard multichannel power amplifier. Each amp channel
is capable of producing a gratifying 140 Watts at 8 Ohms, and 240 Watts
at 4 Ohms. Instead of the customary seven amp channels, the HD-XSPA
features eight full channels of robust amplification to drive a complete 7.1
speaker system including a passive in-wall subwoofer, minimizing both
rack space and floor space requirements. A line-level sub output is also
included to support an active powered subwoofer.
The HD-XSPA can be set up to support a wide variety of speaker
configurations up to 7.1. When configured for use with a 5.1 or smaller
speaker system, two of its amp channels can be reallocated to drive a
second stereo zone. See “Downmix Output” below for more information.

Complete Connectivity
The HD-XSPA includes full input connectivity for all types of digital and
analog sources including Blu-ray Disc® players, HDTV receivers, game
consoles, computers, media servers, and mobile devices. Additionally, a
DigitalMedia input and stereo downmix output are included to facilitate
integration as part of a whole-house AV system.
•• HDMI® Inputs – HDMI provides the essential interface for handling
high-definition 7.1 digital surround sound and 4K Ultra HD video
sources. The HD-XSPA includes four HDMI inputs, which can be
expanded using a Crestron HD-MD8X1 or HD-MD8X2 switcher[2]. The
HD-XSPA also allows for control of the connected sources through their
HDMI connections using CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) signals
sent from a Crestron control system[1].
•• SPDIF Inputs – A combination of one optical and two coaxial type
inputs provides connectivity for SPDIF digital audio sources. Audio
signals can also be received from a Sonnex® Multiroom Audio System
via an AUD-EXT Audio Extender[2].
•• Stereo Analog Inputs – Three stereo audio inputs (2 unbalanced,
1 balanced) are included to handle analog signals from line-level
sources. Audio signals can also be received from a Sonnex Multiroom
Audio System via an AUD-EXT Audio Extender[2].
•• DigitalMedia 8G+™ Input – The DM 8G+™ input provides a one-wire
connection to a DigitalMedia switcher. The switcher can be located in
a central equipment cabinet along with all the shared video sources
for the house, allowing any of those sources to be distributed to any
room in the house — including rooms equipped with an HD-XSPA.
The DM 8G+ input can also be used to connect laptop computers and
other portable devices from anywhere in the house using a DM 8G+
transmitter or HDBaseT® transmitter[2]. The transmitter can either be
| 800.237.2041
routed through the central DigitalMedia switcher or wired directly to the
DM 8G+ input on the HD-XSPA. DM 8G+ technology requires just one
CAT5e wire for hookup, supporting Full HD 1080p video and 7.1 audio
over wire lengths up to 330 ft (100 m), and 4K Ultra HD video over
shorter distances.[3]
•• Downmix Output – This audio output provides a stereo or mono
downmix of the surround sound signal to feed a second listening zone
or headphone amp. It can also be used to provide an audio return
channel to a Sonnex Multiroom Audio System, allowing the local audio
to be distributed to multiple stereo zones throughout the house. The
downmix signal is provided through an unbalanced line-level output,
which can be extended up to 2000 feet (610 m) over a single CAT5
wire using an AUD-EXT Audio Extender[2]. The downmix output can also
be configured as an amplified output to directly drive a pair of
speakers. (When the amplified downmix option is enabled, the surround
sound speaker system is limited to 5.1.) The downmix output includes
dedicated controls for volume, bass, treble, loudness, and balance,
which can be made accessible from any touch screen, keypad, or
remote in the house.[1]
•• Subwoofer Line Output – In addition to the amplified subwoofer
output, the sub signal is also provided as a line-level output to feed a
powered subwoofer or external amplifier.
•• HDMI Output – The HDMI output normally connects to the local video
display or projector. The HDMI output passes Full HD 1080p60 and
4K Ultra HD video with HDCP, Deep Color, and 3D from any of the four
HDMI inputs and the DM 8G+ input. It also passes audio, with the
ability to select either a straight pass-through from the selected HDMI,
DM 8G+, SPDIF, or analog audio source, or a stereo downmix of the
decoded surround sound signal. It can even pass CEC signals from a
control system to control the display device. As an option, the HDMI
HD-XSPA 7.1 High-Definition Surround Sound AV Receiver
output can be connected to a DM-TX-201-C DM 8G+ Transmitter[2] to
provide an AV return channel to a centralized DigitalMedia system,
allowing local sources to be shared with other rooms in the house.
Each input on the HD-XSPA includes an input compensation adjustment to
match the average level between sources, and up to 80 ms of
lip-sync delay.
Ultimate Integration
By design, the HD-XSPA works seamlessly as part of a complete Crestron
whole-house AV distribution and automation system.
•• Audio signals can be routed to and from the HD-XSPA using Crestron
AUD-EXT Audio Extenders[2], allowing for integration with a Sonnex
Multiroom Audio System.
•• DigitalMedia connectivity affords sharing of multichannel audio along
with HD video as part of a complete DigitalMedia network.
•• Via DigitalMedia or Ethernet, the HD-XSPA can communicate with a
Crestron control system, allowing user-friendly operation via a choice of
touch screens, handheld remotes, smartphones, and tablet computers.
•• Using the hardware provided, the HD-XSPA can be installed in an
equipment rack or placed on a shelf.
Keyboard/Mouse Extender
When connected to a DigitalMedia switcher or transmitter, the HD-XSPA
can function as a keyboard/mouse extender. Via its rear panel USB port, a
USB HID-compliant keyboard and/or mouse can be connected and used
to control a computer or media server in the central equipment cabinet (or
any other location).
Other types of USB devices, including mobile phones, media players, Web
cameras, flash drives, and game controllers, can be supported by adding
a USB-EXT-DM-REMOTE extender module[2]. Also, a local host computer,
media server, or game console can be controlled from a remote location by
adding a USB-EXT-DM-LOCAL extender module[2].
Amplifier Monitoring and Protection
For systems utilizing in-wall or in-ceiling speakers, itís critical that the
amplifier driving those speakers possesses the intelligence to protect itself
in the event of a shorted or damaged speaker line. The HD-XSPA includes
sophisticated protection from many types of faults on a per channel basis.
In the event of a fault, the front panel LCD provides clear fault indication to
speed the troubleshooting of damaged or incorrect wiring, poor rack
ventilation, and other unforeseen issues. Fault alerts may also be
broadcast to a touch screen or mobile device, and integrators can even
monitor and track the data remotely to ensure a rapid service response.
70/100V Option
For ultimate versatility, the HD-XSPA can be equipped for use with 70 or
100 Volt speakers. Also known as “constant-voltage”, 70 Volt and 100 Volt
speaker systems allow for long wire runs using small-gauge wire, with the
potential for connecting numerous speakers per circuit. Typical
applications include outdoor speaker zones and commercial environments.
Any of the HD-XSPAís amplifier outputs can be converted to 70 or 100 Volt
using Sonnex Output Transformers (SAT-70V/100V-2 or SAT-70V/100V-4[2]).
| 800.237.2041
Device Control Ports
The HD-XSPA includes an assortment of built-in control ports to allow for
programmable control of the local AV components and other room devices
without the need for extra control modules or wiring. Each control port is
addressable from a Crestron control system, whether that control system
is installed locally or in another room. Ethernet, RS-232, IR, and lowvoltage relay ports provide for control of the display device and AV sources,
and may also be used to control a motorized screen or lift, window
treatments, lighting, and other equipment in the room. Many AV devices
can also be controlled directly via the HDMI ports. Four ìSENSî inputs are
also included to accommodate power sensors, motion detectors, and other
contact closure devices.[1]
