TVA2.1 Digital Two-Channel TV Amplifier with IR Learning and Sub Out

Better Sound for TV! Control with your TV remote. The Russound TVA2.1 is a digital 2-channel low-profile amplifier designed expressly for integrating with flat panel televisions.
The TVA2.1 delivers smooth, robust sound for an enhanced viewing experience. On-board IR learning allows its volume to be seamlessly controlled by the TV or cable box’s remote control.

"The Russound [TVA2.1] is solidly built, it offers all of the features needed to power a pair of speakers, and it sounds clear and robust. Because of its size I was also able to neatly tuck the amp into a TV stand without it looking out of place"
- Robert Archer, CePro

Its thin footprint means the TVA2.1 can be hidden behind the television or mounted in an in-wall panel behind a television for convenience. The built-in IR learning function eliminates the need for an external control system. This can dramatically reduce the cost of adding additional rooms of audio to a home and keeps the operation simple and intuitive for the homeowner by letting them use their current remote control device.

The TVA2.1 features three input options for flexibility. A traditional analog RCA line level input, and both Digital Coax and Optical S/PDIF. The TVA2.1 supports up to 24bit/96khz digital audio in a PCM stereo format.
