The THIEL ViewPoint (R) is a 2-way Coherent Source loudspeaker designed for use with flat panel, wall-mounted video displays. Custom-built to match the size and color of any flat panel display, the ViewPoint offers very high-performance sound and a seamless, integrated appearance.
The Leader in Style and Performance
"I am inspired to abandon my career, buy some ViewPoints and a plasma TV, retire to the sticks, and watch DVDs all day," says Brent Butterwworth in his Home Entertainment & Design review of the Viewpoints. "Movie soundtracks and music videos alike reveal new subtlety and emotion.
"Most high-end audio designers come grudgingly into the world of custom-installed audiovisual systems," says Brent. "...Not Jim Thiel. He embraced the custom-installation trend years ago, creating unique speakers that deliver unbelievable performance even though they mount in the wall or on a ceiling."
The ViewPoint’s combination of coaxial/coplanar driver mounting and 90 degree radiation pattern enables the sound to cover the room far more completely than normal, more directional surface-mount or in-wall speakers. By utilizing the patent-pending combination of mounting the woofer very close and angled to the wall surface, the ViewPoint eliminates the wall-reflection cancellation that mars the sonic performance of virtually every other surface-mounted speaker, therefore providing a greater degree of tonal fidelity, accuracy, and more natural spaciousness.
