NOVEMBER 2004: THIEL Audio will be the featured loudspeakers in a high-end 5.1 sound system at EH Expo's High Performance Screening Room being held Nov. 15–18th in the Long Beach, CA Convention Center, room 204.
Featuring some of the world’s best audio and video components, the Expo’s High Performance Screening Room is set up to educate installation professionals on the benefits of high-performance audio and video gear through a short equipment demonstration, and to help dealers understand the significant revenue, profit and customer satisfaction opportunities of selling a better breed of sound equipment for surround and music-only listening applications. The room will also offer opportunities to talk with the experts from the manufacturers, including THIEL's Ken Dawkins. Other system manufacturers represented include Theta electronics, Synergy cables, Richard Gray's Power Company, and Runco video. 30 minute demos will run every hour on the hour throughout the show.
New SmartSub (R) subwoofer and Integrator in system for deep, powerful bass
One of the room's two systems will use THIEL loudspeaker models PCS, MCS1, CS1.6 and SS2 Smart Sub subwoofers, all seamlessly matched with the new THIEL SI 1 Integrator.
The PCS front speakers and center-channel MCS1 are both 3-way systems that incorporate THIEL’s innovative tweeter/midrange array, a very low distortion short coil/long gap, coaxially-mounted driver combination that share the same voice coil. The award-winning CS1.6 is a high-efficiency, floor-standing, 2-way model under 36 inches tall.
THIEL's two technologically advanced SS2 SmartSub subwoofers and SI 1 Integrator offer deep, powerful bass perfectly integrated with the system's main speakers to deliver an extremely realistic sonic experience. The powered 1000 watt, $4900 SS2 employs two long-throw 10" woofers in a 23.5" H x 11" W x 20" D, 108 pound cabinet with up to 105dB of output at 20 Hz and up to 112dB at 30 Hz. THIEL’s new SmartSub Integrator at $4400 is an active electronic device designed to achieve near perfect integration between a THIEL subwoofer and virtually any pair of main loudspeakers.
Win a pair of THIEL CS1.6 loudspeakers
Attendees who take part in the Screening Room product demonstrations and have their badges scanned will also be eligible for product giveaways including a $2390 pair of THIEL CS1.6s.
THIEL ViewPoint named TechLiving “Must Have” Product
The THIEL ViewPoint has been selected as one of TechLiving Magazine’s “Must Have” products for its 2004 Hot List. “We went through everything we have covered over the past year, as well as the hundreds of submissions people sent in,” said TechLiving, “We looked at what we thought our readers would be most interested in, ease of use, unique features, cost, and more--and knew that the ViewPoint needed to be on this year's list.” The ViewPoint will be featured in the November/December 2004 issue of TechLiving, which will be distributed at the EH Expo in Long Beach.
The THIEL ViewPoint is a 2-way Coherent Source loudspeaker designed to visually integrate with any brand of flat-panel, wall-mounted video display. The built-to-order, all-aluminum enclosure is trimmed in length and painted to match the customer's display by THIEL for wall-mounting directly aside the display. The ViewPoint's suggested retail price is $1990 each. The ViewPoint will be on display in the High Performance Screeing Room.
