Stevenson, Md. - Startup
has signed up more than 100 dealers for its inaugural series of home speakers but delayed shipment until December from October.
Co-founder Sandy Gross Founder cited "all sorts of little things" for the changed date.
The speakers are targeted to independent A/V specialists. The company doesn't plan to sell to regional chains or to online stores.
The company was founded by Sandy Gross, co-founder of Polk Audio and Definitive Technology, and Don Givogue, another Definitive co-founder.
The startup's first products, which
, consisted of five in-room speakers and two subwoofers.
The company has promoted the use of such technologies as accordion-like ribbon tweeters and multivaned phase plugs on midrange/bass drivers as enabling the speakers to deliver greater frequency response, dynamic range, and detail than competing models at the same price points and with greater imaging width, depth, and height.
Both technologies appear in all speakers but the two standalone powered subs.
The lineup includes the:
- $1,249-each Triton Two three-way tower;
- slim two-way SuperSat 50 left-right speaker and its center-channel version, the SuperSat 50C, both at $499 and both suitable for wall mounting because of their 2.5-inch depth;
- the SuperSat3 small satellite, available in a horizontal center-channel SuperSat 3C version, each offered at $249; and
- the $499 ForceField 3 and $699 ForceField 4 powered subs, made of high-density MDF in matte-black finish. Both are trapezoid-shaped with rounded edges.
The speakers can be assembled to create three different 5.1-channel home-theater speaker systems at $1,750, $2,700 and $3,500.
