Proficient’s first AVR, the $1,250-suggested M80

Riverside, Calif. - Proficient Audio expects to ship its first A/V receiver (AVR) in September.

The $1,250-suggested M80, now in production, will join a two-channel stereo receiver and a six-zone 12-channel stereo receiver, which was launched in 2007 with dual AM/FM tuners and packaged with six in-wall keypads.

The company also offers in-ceiling, in-wall, on-wall and outdoor speakers as well as subwoofers, a stereo receiver, and other multi-room audio electronics. With the M80 launch, "we're now the only company that can deliver a single-brand component solution for residential custom-installed audio," Proficient president Keith Marshall claimed.

The M80 AVR features DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD decoding,  four HDMI inputs, Faroudja DCDi Cinema video processing, 7x130-watt high-current Class AB amplifier, line outputs to add on larger amps and an optional iPod dock. The AVR features a cast aluminum faceplate.

The device will be displayed at next month's CEDIA Expo.
