Adcom's New GTP-860II 7.1 Channel Tuner/Preamp Offers 'Digital Intelligence
With An Analog Soul'
Adcom, the Scottsdale-based audio products manufacturer known for its
high-quality audio component separates, has begun shipping a new multichannel
tuner/preamp, the fourth in its line of home theater oriented control
The new GTP-860II is a 7.1 multichannel model that retails for $1,500
(US). It's available immediately, in silver or black finish, and it comes
with a five-year parts and labor warranty.
Adcom's new GTP-860II Multichannel Tuner/Preamp
is versatile and simple to set up for a wide variety of custom home theater
The GTP-860II features Dolby Digital, Dolby ProLogic II and DTS processing.
In addition, the GTP-860II offers RS232 automation interface, all discrete
IR coding, and 6 source-direct outputs for multi-zone applications.
Adcom says the new model is designed to deliver outstanding performance
at a reasonable price, as well as uncommon operational simplicity. It
can handle a wide range of available source material, making it a versatile
option for any number of home audio environments.
"Reliability and performance are critical design components for
all of our products," comments Ron James, Adcom's vice president
of sales and marketing,
"But equally important to us is how easy the product is to operate
for the consumer. We don't add meaningless features, which only serve
to needlessly complicate the product and raise its price. The GTP-860II
is easy to understand and operate, and delivers outstanding audio and
video performance. At the same time, it is very versatile and simple
to set up for a wide variety of custom home theater applications."
The GTP-860II offers Adcom's proprietary 7.1m2 rear channel stereo matrix,
which creates a fuller sense of ambiance from rear channels than other
6.1 or 7.1 matrices. In addition to improved spatiality, Adcom 7.1m2
allows all seven channels to operate regardless of whether the source
material is 5.1 digital or (in combination with Dolby ProLogic II) analog.

world. DVD, high definition television, and computer technology offer
us an incredible universe of entertainment options. But to experience
the new media we need the digital numbers converted into our analog

are the key to turning the potential of digital entertainment into
a high-resolution experience that can touch the senses and move your
