Product Features

A New Level of Sophistication

The Essentia from Nuvo takes whole home audio to another level. Leading a home electronics revolution, the Essentia reflects Nuvo's commitment to simple solutions. With intelligent operation, easy installation, and a price that makes luxury affordable, this is the most unique, efficient product in its class.

From the great room, to the back patio and throughout the home, Generation D design protocol masterfully delivers true high fidelity audio – sound that is distinctly Nuvo.

A High Standard

With the Essentia system, the electronic home evolves into one of efficiency and environmental savings. As the first of its kind to earn the ENERGY STAR, the slender, single rack design exceeds energy consumption standards while effectively supplying 40 watts of power to each zone, making sure you don't miss one beat or tone.

Control On Demand

The new OLED display puts complete control at your fingertips. Selecting your favorite artist is as easy as 1-2-3. Album information displays your listening options from any Control Pad. Make your selection by audio source. Or, browse by station, play list, track, artist, album, or genre. With the Essentia Control Pad, you know what's playing when it's playing. And, with intuitive feedback, it's never been so easy to change selections and manage your system.

Intelligent and feature rich. With complete program functionality, you can customize your playback settings and options to fit the natural acoustics of each room. Keep a strong bass in the theater, limit the volume in the kids' rooms, and make dad happy with a dedicated tuner – so he's never interrupted. With the new Essentia it's all possible!

Seamless Integration

An open design frame equips Essentia for home automation control, allowing you to easily connect your audio distribution system to your digital home.

What's more, non-Nuvo sources can be easily integrated with full IR control and macro support. Now listening to your CD changer is as easy as picking up the remote. And NuvoNet communication makes control of third party partner systems possible over serial data command. Such simple control will make you seek a more integrated approach for all your home electronic systems.
