    Focal Astral 16 AV Processor/Amplifier Review

    by Steve Withers
    Focal Astral 16 AV Processor/Amplifier Review
    The Focal Astral 16 is a high-end AV processor and amplifier that has 12 channels built-in, but can decode up to 16 for Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro-3D. There's also Dirac Live and sophisticated web-based interface, but does it do enough to justify the hefty price-tag.
