Rare Audio today announced that it has been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree for its Element 4.1 Car Audio Amplifier. Building on Rare Audio’s 2013 award winning regenerative amplifier platform, the Element 4.1 adds features such as Bluetooth streaming and telephony, as well as Apple/Android phone and tablet applications. The Element 4.1 has incredible power density and exceptional sound quality.
“Particular attention has been paid to the user experience with an enhanced GUI, as well as Apple and Android configuration apps,” says Julian Merritt, Director of Rare Audio. “Bluetooth audio enables users to stream music from their Bluetooth device, to make and receive phone calls, and enables remote software downloads ensuring users get the latest feature and performance upgrades automatically. Bluetooth opens the door for users to play their favorite music streams from Pandora and Spotify when their device is connected to the internet. We are also encouraging the development of audio profiles so that users can download profiles for many types of vehicle and speaker setup.”
Merritt goes on to say, “Thanks to the design of the amplifier stages, the Element 4.1 amplifier has overcome inherent existing D class amplifier issues such as radio interference and carrier frequency problems without the need for complex filtering and shielding.”
The Rare Audio Element 4.1 amplifier, along with a new entry level line of amplifiers, will be displayed at the 2015 International CES (booth #3423, LVCC, North Hall), which runs Jan. 6-9, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
