Theta Casablanca III, Music and Cinema Controller Preamp

The Theta Casablanca III has a Completely NEW Operating System with faster, streamlined operations. Uploading new software and updates is quicker and simpler, making Casablanca easier to upgrade and reconfigure than ever - contributing to Casablanca's fundamental design goal of non-obsolescence.
The new OS is inherently rock-stable, making the Casablanca III nearly "bulletproof." Over two years in intensive design, the operating system is a major change at Casablanca's most fundamental level, achieving enhanced overall performance.
Refinements in Theta Casablanca III's basic processing have improved both sound and picture quality.
Sound: The highs are extended: detail in the uppermost regions is more delineated while maintaining Theta's famous liquidity. Background is more 'black' (This means an absence of even infinitesimal noise). Imaging is even better than before. Bass is better defined, and extends lower.
Image: Complex scenes are razor sharp, faces in the crowd more defined. Water rushing over stones maintains realism, sunlight shimmers through each leaf. Colors are true-to-life vivid, blacks deeper than ever before.


Structure

Expansive
Casablanca III's amazing flexibility and upgradability allow you to custom tailor your system to your individual requirements. Your system can expand and improve; you add the capabilities you want, when you want.

Theta Casablanca III Flexibility
Once the custom configuration and set-up of the Casablanca III is completed, it is as simple to operate as selecting your Input and setting the volume. Everything else is programmed into the Casablanca III.
All Casablanca III's include Theta's 12 Channel Surround Processing card. Choose from Front Left, Front Center, Front Right, Surround Left, Surround Right, Side Left, Side Right, Surround Center and up to 5 Subwoofers. When 2 subwoofers are active, they can be configured as either Front Left & Right or Front/Rear.
The Casablanca III offers extensive Input Jack to Input Source Selection Routing. Any of the 18 Audio Inputs and up to 10 Video Inputs can be routed to any or all of the 12 Input Selectors. Each Input Selector can have up to 6 audio and up to 6 video sources routed to it.
What this means to you… If you like to watch the financial news, you can do so while listening to Satellite Radio, your Hard Disk, Theta Compli, or up to 3 more sources with the same Video Source. You can also have multiple Video Sources with a single Audio Source or mix and match any audio source with any video source; you can use a particular Speaker/Crossover/Level setting for multiple input jacks or sources.  In other words, if you can dream up a use or setup,

Theta Enterprise Monaural Power Amp

Enterprise, Not Just A Pretty face!

THE THETA ENTERPRISE IS A MONAURAL 300 WATT POWER AMPLIFIER BASED ON THE CITADEL, THETA'S MOST POWERFUL AMPLIFIER, AND THE DREADNAUGHT II. IT BENEFITS FROM THE KNOWLEDGE, RESEARCH AND DEDICATION THAT TEAM THETA BROUGHT TO THOSE SUPERLATIVE DESIGNS.
Theta Enterprise has been created to power superb two channel music reproduction systems, as well as delivering abundant power to home theater systems, to faithfully recreate the vast spectrum of soundtracks.
The heart of the Enterprise is its fully-balanced differential, zero-feedback circuitry, with meticulously selected solid-state devices throughout. We scrutinize the selection to optimize component parts in each and every stage, and for the performance of the amplifier as a whole.
The sound is similar to the mighty Citadel amps in veracity and intimacy with the musical experience, and in the prospect of movie performance that will make your home theater your favorite movie palace.
The audio board is a 4-layer glass-epoxy circuit board: 1 layer each for positive and negative supply lines; 1 layer for ground plane; 1 layer for signal path.
Enterprise's transistors are the same ultra-fast devices that help give Citadel and Dreadnaught II their superlative sonic signature.

Theta Dreadnaught II Power Amplifier   2 to 5 Channel Power Amp, Your Choice!
Dreadnaught II is a tour de force in design, execution, and audible performance.

Dreadnaught II Multi Channel If You Want It To Be

THE DREADNAUGHT II IS THETA DIGITAL'S ZERO-FEEDBACK, FULLY BALANCED DIFFERENTIAL AMPLIFIER. IT IS AN AUDIOPHILE-CALIBER TWO TO TEN-CHANNEL POWER AMPLIFIER.
Amplification modules can easily be installed at any time. Each module is a separate "plug & play" unit. Theta Dreadnaught II can begin as a stereo amplifier, and grow to five full-power channels later. Use Two-Channel modules in any of Dreadnaught II's 5 slots: you can have up to 10 channels.
Each Dreadnaught II channel is rated at 225 watts into 8 Ohms, 450 into 4, and even more into 2 Ohms. Your Dreadnaught II can be a two-channel amplifier, or load it with up to five identical channels.
Two-channel modules can be used in place of any of the five single channels, each comprising two channels, less powerful than the single-channel modules, but otherwise having exactly the same circuit topology.

Theta Compli DVD / CD Player, Cinema and Music
THETA COMPLI UNIVERSAL PLAYER
For Video, Audio, Image and Content Formats, Including DVD, CD, DVD-A, SACD and More

Remarkably versatile Compli Multi-Format DVD Player Combines a high-quality DVD and CD transport with state-of-the-art processing.  Compli comes as close to serving as a universal format source component as A/V technology allows. The Compli's combination of sophistication and exceptional versatility provides extraordinarily high quality playback for a multiplicity of listening and viewing formats. Now you don't have to choose between limited quality machines that play all the latest formats, and high-performance components with the frustrations of more limited format compatibility. Compli's unique blend of uncompromised performance, flexibility and advanced technology make it ideal for any high-end home theater or home entertainment application.
Plays Well With Others
Compli has six-channel analog audio outputs, and digital outputs for PCM, DTS and Dolby Digital. It comes equipped for RS232 control, and with Composite, S-Video, Component and 480p video outputs.
It also has Theta's proprietary High-Speed Digital Interface. Designed for Theta's two-channel Generation VIII Digital-to-Analog Converter, this interface is necessary for DVD-A and SACD playback. In keeping with Theta's approach to product development, Compli's High-Speed Digital Interface will connect with Casablanca's and Casa Nova's high speed input options coming out later this year.
Sound
Theta Compli has the audio quality expected from a Theta piece. The depth and richness of every recording - whether music or movies - is revealed (you'll be amazed at what you didn't know was missing!).
Formats
Theta Compli lets you play nearly any audio, video, and image format: DVD-Audio, DVD-Video, DVD-R, DVD-RW, SACD, Audio CD, Video CD, CD-R, and CD-RW. The Compli is also compatible with CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW and MP3 formatted material, with some restrictions.
