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.

Athena Technologies has just announced the release of a new 6 piece speaker system called the MICRA 6. This system was designed from the ground up to accomplish the goal of providing quality sound and value in a small, sleek, home theater flat screen solution. The MICRA consist of four MS satellite speakers that feature a 3.5 inch long throw woofer platform, and a 1/2 inch tweeter. Flexible mounting hardware is included that allows the speaker to be wall or ceiling mounded. The speakers’ enclosure is formed from an injection molded resin that provides a light yet solid structure. All drivers are magnetically shielded. The MC is the matching center channel included in the system. It features a 1/2 inch tweeter and dual 3.5 inch woofers for added power handling and dynamic abilities. It is timbre matched to the MS satellites and comes with mounting hardware that also allows for numerous mounting options.

Esquire Magazine and The Trump Organization will unveil their one-of-a-kind, modern living space – The Esquire Apartment – at The Trump World Tower at 845 United Nations Plaza in New York City. Mirage Incognita custom series speakers as well as an array of designs featuring Omnipolar technology will be the speakers of choice. Mirage designs were chosen as the speaker supplier adorning each room of the 5,425 square foot, four bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom penthouse on the 89 floor of The Trump World Tower. “The Esquire Apartment isn’t your typical showhouse,” said Kevin C. O’Malley, publisher of Esquire Magazine. “We’re incorporating so many unique ideas to make this an interactive experience. Instead of simply looking at the space and appreciating the unique elements within it, our Apartment will be tactile – from the seating areas to the home electronics equipment. This is first and foremost a modern living space.”
