AVA Cinema Remote

I know there's a bunch of remotes available that are compatible with K but many are locked down preventing users from making complex tweaks. AVA being the new kid on the block has released a new version of their remote with a dynamic keypad and macros for registering actions across different devices.
This isn't the cheapest unit and drivers are still being developed but the K driver works great (IP and IR). Once set-up you can create flows freely. You can also launch K (android) app which is pretty cool for browsing titles, viewing downloads etc and it's compatible with Josh.AI. I have a dealer demo and can answer any questions. Loving it so far.

What else are you controlling with it? I’m in the midst of looking for a remote/automation system but haven’t settled on something yet.

Within the cinema room, I have flows registering actions for my projector, anthem processor, movie poster wall (LG Frame) and either the Kaleidescape player or Apple TV. All drivers are IR with the exception of Kaleidescape (the Ava brain device sits in the server room). Remote also integrates well with Sonos and Spotify.
Currently AVA can replicate what control4 does in the same room with the exception of Lutron lighting (driver isn’t available yet but I can run the android app).
Here’s a DB driver list of compatible devices - AVA Device Database
 
Can this control music playback by my Reavon SACD Playback and roon (using Trinnov endpoint). My C4 does this now, and I will be interested in this

Yes, although the Reavon and Trinnov drivers look to be IR only for now, so an AVA brain will need to be used as I assume your kit is in a server room/rack.
The AVA flow functionality can switch on the Trinnov processer & Reavon player, select the correct input/source for both and then launch the Roon app on the remote. The dynamic keypad can control the Trinnov volume & Reavon player navigation as Roon isn't fully integrated like Sonon/Spotify yet. However, the Roon app can be controlled via the touch screen on the remote.

is the Kaleidescape control via IP? or IR?

Both (TCP/IP and IR) They also have modules for most of the major control systems.
