Monoprice announces new home theater controller and subs

One of the chief go-to online cable resources, Monoprice, will be unveiling an assortment of new products at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), including a new home theater processor, the Monolith HTP-1 (available in the fall), and a range of THX Certified Sealed Subwoofers. The company says it is known for delivering the latest technologies direct-to-consumer to avoid high cost markups. Monoprice will also showcase a further selection of product offerings across a variety of categories including consumer audio, 3D printing, monitors, cables and accessories at The Venetian in Las Vegas.

The new Monolith HTP-1 16 Channel Dolby Atmos & DTS:X Home Theater Processor with Dirac will be priced at $3,999.99 (pictured). Monoprice says the controller is a state of the art, 16 channel processor engineered “for the true audiophile.” The unit features support of the latest Dolby Atmos and DTS-X surround formats and is equipped with advanced room correction software Dirac Live.

The Monolith THX Certified Sealed Subwoofers (priced from $499.99 to $1,299.99) are currently pending THX certification, but promise to deliver “chest thumping bass,” up to 1,000 watts of power, and superior sealed cabinet construction. Monoprice also says the new units will deliver “punchy bass, spectacular musicality and low frequency extension.” Sizes will include 10″ 12″ and 15″ driver variants.

“Our continued mission for 2019 is providing greater accessibility to the sought-after product categories consumers are enthusiastic about but often discouraged by because of high costs,” said Bernard Luthi, CEO at Monoprice. “With emerging technologies representing evolving consumer preferences on display at CES, the show is the perfect stage on which to introduce high-quality solutions that boldly disrupt industry price points. The Home Theater Processor we’re debuting this year is a great example of this, which we’re offering at one-third of the cost of the industry standard. We look forward to sharing our new products with the technology-focused audience CES is known for.”
