Aphrodite | Integrator Series AV-A Cabinet
Presenting the all new Aphrodite Integrator Series AV-A Cabinet by Aegis AV Cabinets. Aphrodite is the first of its kind, and offers all of the same features and technologies that makes Aegis unique, and much more. Aphrodite is the first to offer integrated sliding and rotating AV compartments that allow easy access to equipment inside for installation and maintenance.
The Aphrodite Integrator Series Cabinet incorporates network grade surge protection, RGBW custom ambient lighting, digital thermostat controlled filtered cooling, and built in home automation. Aphrodite is designed to be an elegant, striking addition to any home décor giving customers protection and longevity to their high-end equipment.
Aegis AV Cabinets’ founder Michael Kelley, realizes most homes do not accommodate for AV design. This issue requires installers to force equipment into pantries, cabinets, and closets, none of which were designed to protect electronic equipment against overheating. Even aftermarket installed fan kits fall short of supporting regulated temperature control and reducing dust buildup to ensure the longevity of the equipment inside.
Aphrodite has a 2 zone cooling system designed to bring in filtered and conditioned cool air using ultra-quiet fans and ventilate it through the equipment while forcing hot air out. Each cabinet is equipped with a digital thermostat that allows customers to customize the operating temperature inside. Cool air is introduced, forces hot air up through cross drilled ventilated shelves, and is drawn out through exhaust fans.
Every cabinet includes a Tripp Lite ISOBAR 12 Ultra which features network grade AC surge protection with EMI/RFI noise filtering. Outlets are arranged in exclusive isolated filter banks to limit noise interaction among connected devices. The rear cable farm allows ample room for cables and bulky transformers while keeping them completely out of site.
Create a scene with illumination effects to go along with mood or complement a special occasion. Choose from 3 million colors and several lighting effects like lightning storm, fireplace, or northern lights. Customers can set ambient lighting to display equipment inside. Lighting can also be turned on and off by opening and closing the glass door. (Not all lighting packages are the same, when upgrading to home automation, the upgraded Fibaro RGBW Controller comes standard and offers more lighting features. Review both options before finalizing your order).
