Press Highlights:

The NuForce AVP-18 all-digital HT preamp/processor offers dedicated AV enthusiasts true, 24/192 digital audio performance and superb HD video at an amazing price. With four HDMI inputs, two optical and two coaxial S/PDIF inputs, the AVP-18 easily accommodates the most complex system configurations.

In order to focus on the purest possible digital-to-analog conversion (DAC), the AVP-18 accepts only digital sources, thus permitting the DAC and following analog stages to include the same innovative technology utilized in several of NuForce’s high-end audio DACs. In addition, the AVP-18 offers audiophile-grade analog circuitry throughout, along with a high-precision 8-channel analog volume control and superior-quality RCA output connectors, all of which contribute to the AVP-18’s pristine clarity.

Unlike many similar processors, switching between HDMI inputs on the AVP-18 is smooth and precise. The HDMI output and all four HDMI inputs are fully HDMI 1.4 compliant with 3-D, CEC and ARC support. For the last word in flexibility, the AVP-18 also accepts an ARC input from your TV. Indeed, the AVP-18 is so feature-packed we can’t list everything here. (For further information, please see Features section below.)

While casual users will find initial setup a breeze, the AVP-18 still provides the demanding audiophile all of the controls necessary to customize performance to the highest levels of precision. To get started, connect your digital sources, plug in the calibration microphone (included), and activate the automatic multi-channel room correction software to adjust for the inevitable acoustic anomalies typical of most rooms. Once done and with all settings now stored in memory, you can start enjoying the latest HD audio and video media with the assurance that you are experiencing the kind of accurate, transparent and musical sound upon which NuForce’s reputation rests.

While the AVP-18’s automatic calibration routine makes getting started simple and straightforward, the serious audiophile still has the opportunity to seek perfection by way of an advanced array of calibration options including: 

  • Advanced bass management settings

  • Eleven programmable, fully parametric equalizers per channel

  • Adjustable LFE crossover points and slopes between speakers and subwoofer 

With the AVP-18 as its cornerstone, you’ll have the ideal foundation for building the ultimate audiophile HT system. Add one of our highly acclaimed MCA-20 multi-channel amplifiers, a full compliment of our award winning Reference Series mono-block amplifiers, or some combination thereof and you'll find yourself immersed in a universe of true audiophile cinema and sound.
