What models does this driver support

Note that we only support the UDP800 for IP control as the UDP900 does not have wake-on-lan functionality.

Why is this product so exciting?

The Magnetar Blu-ray players are high end Blu-ray players that take audio and video quality seriously. The UDP900 for example features a Sabre ES9038PRO DAC. This DAC outputs stereo sound via twin balanced XLR or unbalanced RCA outputs. It also outputs surround sound via a 7.1 RCA array. It can also output audio digitally via HDMI, optical or coax.

Does this driver support two-way controls

At present this driver is a one-way driver only due to limitations in the Magnetar API. We have asked Magnetar to upgrade their API to support two-way controls. When this does happen we will update our driver to include this functionality.

I want to try this driver out before buying it?

All Chowmain drivers for Control4 come with a 90 day trial.
