New loudspeaker and electronics manufacturer Theory Audio Design has announced the debut of its first seven products, now available for pre-order and also to be displayed at CEDIA Expo.
The models in the Theory line-up consist of three soundbars (sb65, sb75, and sb85) designed to match up with 65-inch, 75-inch and 85-inch flat panel TVs, an on-wall loudspeaker model (sb-25) with dual 5.5-inch carbon fiber woofers, and two subwoofers (sub12 and sub15) with 12-inch and 15-inch drivers.
The company was founded by AV veteran Paul Hales, who also owns Pro Audio Technology. The emphasis of the Theory product line is to “marry” PRO’s acoustical performance and professional features with “contemporary” design for residential applications.
All Theory systems have at their core a 9-channel Amplified Loudspeaker Controller (ALC-1809) which the company says is “akin to an integrator’s AV swiss army knife.” The ALC-1809 includes 1,800W per system and 96kHz/32-bit digital signal processing. The 1U five-in-one product concept includes a multi-channel DSP processor, multichannel home theater and distributed audio amplifier, multichannel mixing amplifier, multichannel bass manager, and a high-resolution loudspeaker processor
“Theory brings professional audio performance to residential theaters, media rooms, and distributed audio systems, by marrying high-power loudspeakers with high amplifier power, all in compact, visually attractive packages suited to high-end residential and commercial environments,” said Hales. “The result is a complete lineup of products that define a new product category: high power but attractive solutions for every residential and commercial audio application. Full surround systems up to 7.2 or 5.2.2 can be put together with a 9-channel Amplified Loudspeaker Controller for under $10,000 US, which is truly remarkable at this level of performance.”
Theory products will be available from October but can be pre-ordered now. You can get more information at Theory Audio Design.
