KENWOOD AX8. Cadena HI-FI audio-visual system for Home Cinema to audition hi-fi stereo.

Kenwood introduced the new concept of audio-visual system for Home Cinema to audition hi-fi stereo. With 60 years of experience in the world of electronics applied to the physics of audio and video, developed with wisdom and dynamism of the new system AX-7. Based on the third generation of the original development called 'Virtual Surround Front' (VFSIII), and the power of digital signal processor from Analog Devices Incorporated (ADI), Kenwood has built a unique algorithm for the new front surround system. Is able to recreate that atmosphere of surround sound for home cinema screens with the two front speakers that include a dual-speaker system in the radiant panel (a system of two tracks and two speakers and a speaker system only).
