STAMFORD, CONN. — Harman’s Infinity brand revealed pricing and details of a revamped Reference series of inroom speakers, which are front and center in the company’s effort to resuscitate the brand in home audio.
The Infinity brand, founded in 1968, has been quiet for years because Harman has been focusing initially on reinvigorating the JBL and Harman Kardon audio brands, the company previously said.
As part of the effort to resuscitate the brand, Harman not only sketched out its Reference plans at International CES but also announced a five-year partnership with Linkin Park to not only serve as Infinity brand ambassador but also to collaborate on product development and design.
The three-way floorstanding speakers are the R253 with dual 5.25-inch woofers at a suggested $899/pair and the R263 with dual 6.5-inch woofers at $1,099/pair. The two two-way bookshelf speakers are the $399/pair R152 with 5.25-inch woofer and $499/pair R162 with 6.25-inch woofer. The two center-channel speakers are the $349 2.5-way RC252 with dual 5.25-inch woofers and the $499 three-way RC263 with dual 6.5-inch woofers.
The on-wall surround is the $499/pair two-way RS152 with 5.25-inch woofer, and the two subwoofers are the $499 10- inch 200-watt SUB R10 and $599 12-inch 300-watt SUB R12.
