Aphrodite | Integrator Series AV-A Cabinet
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. Aphrodite incorporates a standard “Tri-Zone” digitally controlled and filtered cooling system, large capacity concealed center channel compartment, and AV / turntable compartment.
The Aphrodite Integrator Series Cabinet offers optional equipment include network grade surge cancellation from Tripp-Lite and Panamax BlueBolt, RGBW lighting with remote control, keyless locking, customizable rack mounting system and more. 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.
Each cabinet has a “Tri- 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 each individual compartment independently. Cool air is introduced, forces hot air up through cross drilled ventilated shelves, and is drawn out through exhaust fans.
Each cabinet has the option to add a Tripp Lite ISOBAR 12 Ultra which features network grade AC surge protection with EMI/RFI noise filtering, or 3 choices of Panamax BlueBolt WiFi enabled power management systems. 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 to produce ambient lighting outside of the cabinet. Lighting system can be customized and turned on and off using touch sensitive remote control. Each cabinet has a bottom and top ambient light strip, and override switches so the customer can choose both lights or just one strip at a time.
