Portsmouth, NH – August 29, 2023 – Russound, a leading developer and manufacturer in home audio entertainment, is using the occasion of the 2023 CEDIA Expo to debut its first two mini audio/video receivers: AVA2.1 and AVA3.1.

Measuring only 7.7” x 5.5” x 1.7”, the two models, which respectively offer 2.1- and 3.1-channels of audio output, are highly flexible receivers that can be placed in nearly any imaginable space, including outdoors when used with a weatherproof box.

“These are the AVRs our customers asked for,” says Charlie Porritt, CEO, Russound. “The AVA2.1 and AVA3.1 are ultra-compact, high-performance AVRs designed to fit nearly anywhere, including behind the wall. They’re a boon for custom specialists who need flexible, reliable audio solutions that are easy to install and hide out of sight.”

Both the AVA2.1 and AVA3.1 include a fully integrated, highly efficient class-D amplifier with digital inputs and power output up to 150 watts, 110-240V 50/60Hz universal power supply, built-in Bluetooth 5.0, ARC HDMI, a dedicated subwoofer output with gain control, bass and treble adjustments, a 3.5mm analog output for connection to an outboard amplifier, and an IR remote control with an external receiver. In addition, the thermally designed and optimized enclosure is designed for use in reduced ventilation spaces such as behind the TV boxes, and the HDMI input allows for immediate use with any TV via HDMI’s CEC functionality, eliminating the need to teach IR commands for volume control, thereby simplifying and speeding up installations.

Adds Mr. Porritt: “The AVA2.1 and AVA3.1 are important products for Russound and our dealers, and they are indicative of the direction we’re taking in our 57th year. The market will continue to see us introduce new and innovative high-performance audio products through next year, most of which are designed with direct input from our customers.”
