Spherex Inc., a subsidiary of API has just announced its entry into the computer and video game industry through a 3-year global licensing agreement with Microsoft Corporation to produce and market the Xbox 5.1 branded speaker system. The finished units will have a suggested list price of $499. The Xbox 5.1 is a multimedia audio platform created for use as a game audio and home theater solution, consisting of a 5.1 speaker system with Apogee’s DDX digital power amplification, surround sound processing, multiple audio inputs and networking capability. The 300 watt (RMS) amplifier drives 5 identical OMNIPOLAR satellite speakers and an 8” Subwoofer. The speaker design is based on API’s patented Mirage OMNIPOLAR technology, which disperses sound in a 360 degree pattern, to create realistic immersive experience for gaming, movies and music playback. Four independent audio inputs (3 Digital and 1 Analog) allow simultaneous compatibility with multiple source formats including all gaming consoles, DVD and CD ...

RBH has just introduced sonic upgrades and a complete visual redesign to their MC Theater Series lineup of home theater speakers. Dubbed the MKII series, these redesigned speakers take the MC Theater Series and turn it up a notch in performance and aesthetic appeal. For consumers familiar with the original MC Theater Series, the MKII aesthetic improvements are evident. The redesigned baffle and countersunk woofers make for a more attractive speaker when the grill is off and hides the “mechanics” of the speaker such as the screws securing the woofers to the cabinet. The new Resonance Damping Alloy Baffle™ (RDAB) functions to dampen cabinet vibrations and minimize tweeter diffraction.

Canton has recently introduced eight new loudspeakers in its Ergo line, including a new powered subwoofer and seven full-range models featuring new crossover. New models include a trio of three-way floorstanders, two bookshelf speakers, two 2-1/2-way center channel speakers, and a 200-Watt powered subwoofer, and all are available in silver lacquer, black, beech, and cherry wood veneer finishes. The new Ergo full-range models incorporate improved crossover networks that are based on technology developed for the company's signature Karat Reference 2 DC loudspeaker system. These changes include the use of ICW polypropylene capacitors, which have led to a marked reduction in dielectric absorption or “memory” effects giving the models improved transient response and detail. The new crossover design also has a significant reduction in microphonics designed to improve mid-range and high-frequency reproduction. The new Ergo center channel speakers are 2-1/2-way designs optimized for horizontal mounting. The speakers use a centrally-mounted tweeter flanked by a pair of identical ...

Snell Acoustics has just introduced the XA 2500 LCR Speaker. A cross between the Reference XA 2900 and the XA 1900thx, the new XA 2500 sits squarely in the middle of Snell’s high-end, in-cabinet speaker line and incorporates exclusive Snell eXpanding Array technology. Using the XA 2900’s driver set and crossover the XA 2500 provides the output, dynamics and detail of its Reference brother at less than half the price. The eXpanding Array consists of two 8-inch woofers that flank the two 4.5-inch midrange drivers arranged over and under a 1-inch pure titanium dome tweeter. Through the use of sophisticated computer modeling, Snell’s eXpanding Array exhibits a very broad, even vertical dispersion. The design formula calculates driver size, spacing, crossover frequency and slope to develop an array whose length varies with frequency. Specifically, as the applied frequency decreases [lowers in pitch], the effective length expands to give constant directivity making the XA 2500 flat regardless of ...

PSB Speakers are highlighting their newest loudspeaker series with a total of seven new models. The Series consists of seven models, the T8 and T6 Towers, M2 Monitor, C4 and C2 Center Channels, S2 Bipolar Surround and SubSonic 10 Powered Subwoofer. PSB speakers are made using design tools such as Finite Element Analysis (FEA), laser vibrometry and computer optimization. More important is that both the drivers, crossovers and the final products were designed and developed by founder Paul Barton through objective measurements and critical listening tests at the Canada's National Research Council.
