Theory Audio Design launches at CEDIA Expo 2019
A new loudspeaker and electronics manufacturer announced its seven products are now available for pre-order after being on display at the CEDIA Expo 2019.
Speaker models in the Theory line-up consist of three soundbars (sb65, sb75, and sb85) designed to perfectly match with 65”, 75” and 85” flat panel TVs, an all-purpose on-wall loudspeaker model (sb-25) with dual 5.5” carbon fibre woofers as well as two subwoofers (sub12 and sub15) with 12” and 15” drivers.
At the core of all Theory systems lies a nine-channel Amplified Loudspeaker Controller (ALC-1809) that is akin to an integrator’s AV Swiss army knife. It features 1,800W per system and 96kHz/32-bit digital signal processing that combines the functionality of five products in one; a multi-channel DSP processor, high power multichannel home theater and distributed audio amplifier, multichannel mixing amplifier, multichannel bass manager and 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,” Theory Audio Design founder Paul Hales says.
“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 nine-channel Amplified Loudspeaker Controller for under US$10,000, which is truly remarkable at this level of performance.”
Founded by Paul, Theory Audio Design marries Pro Audio Technology’s startling acoustic performance and professional features with sophisticated contemporary design at a much lower cost.
