SpeakerCraft Enters the


Home Theater Receiver Market

Two models to be introduced at the CEDIA Expo

RIVERSIDE, CA: August 17, 2009 SpeakerCraft, the world leader in custom installed

loudspeakers and electronics, announced the introduction of two A/V receivers. A first for the

company best know for its custom installed loudspeakers, these two receivers are part of a

larger overall focus on electronics.

“Many of our dealers have expressed a desire to be able to support us in additional categories

and this was a a perfect opportubity to expand our offering and allow them to do just that,”

remarked Jeremy Burkhardt, SpeakerCraft’s president. “The closer we come to being a

complete solution provider the better we can service our dealer base.”

The first model, the SCR710, is an 80-watt stereo receiver with a high current output stage

capable of driving low impeadence loads with authority. This is critical when dealers are trying

to do more with less and reducing the number of components to power a multi-room audio

system can be a real cost saver. A high quality, stable receiver is a powerful tool for any custom

installer.





The second model is a full-featured 7.1 channel receiver with all of the options one expects

from a home theater product at this level. From its solid 130-watt per channel power rating to

complex audio/video switching and upconverting functions to the numerous surround-sound

modes that consumers demand, the SCR910 will stand up next to any of the finest receivers in

the business.

“We didn’t want to get into the receiver business unless we could do it right,” said Jeff

Francisco, SpeakerCraft’s V.P. of product development. “These first two models reflect all of

the build quality and performance our dealers expect from a SpeakerCraft product.”

The SCR710 and 910 will ship in Q4 with a $425 and $1,250 M.S.R.P. respectively.

SpeakerCraft, established in 1976, devoted itself for more than a decade to the design and

development of architectural loudspeakers and became known as the prime OEM for many

well-known, in-wall speaker brands in the field. In marketing its own brand, now one of the

widest lines of architectural speakers and electronics in the industry, SpeakerCraft brings with

it years of experience and a dedication to dealer satisfaction.

Interesting for them to get into the receiver market considering how competative it is.  I look forward to a review, and I'm interested in how "custom installer" friendly it is compared to Denon's CI line.

I'm also interested in exploring the features of this new line of receivers for the reason you mentioned as well as full specs on number of inputs/outputs, sound processing capabilities Ala Audyssey (if applicable) and other such things.  In addition to attending the SpeakerCraft press conference we'll be sure to examine these units closely on the show floor.

Hi friends.

Welcome to the CEDIA Expo website - established for over a decade CEDIA Expo is the leading trade event for the residential custom installation industry.

The event showcases the latest innovations and technologies in home cinema, audio-video solutions, lighting control, structured wiring, HVAC control, blind and security systems. If you are involved in the planning, design, specification or installation of home electronic systems, this is a must attend event for your calendar.

Against the backdrop of a global recession, more than 150 CI brands supported the 2009 event with an array of new product launches and benefited hugely from steady, high quality visitor traffic on the Tuesday and Thursday of the show, and a spectacular attendance on the middle day of the event. Attendance for this year’s CEDIA Expo totaled 5,082.
