Complete with four satellite speakers and a dedicated center channel speaker, the Quintet is a complete 5.1 home theater system. Although value engineered, this system stays true to the brand's audiophile heritage by utilizing durable, high-quality components.

Each Quintet speaker employs a new 90-degree by 90-degree Tractrix horn, designed to expand both placement flexibility and the main listening area. Combined with the Tractrix horn, a lightweight aluminum tweeter creates a highly efficient driver with excellent transient response and lack of distortion. The new Linear Travel Suspension reduces distortion and enhances dynamics.

The Quintet's cabinets are made of professional AcoustaComp, a material that is naturally dense, rigid and acoustically insert. This specialized material, formed into the Quintet's speaker cabinets with non-parallel walls to diminish internal standing waves, is thought by the company to be the next generation in compact home speaker technology.

Offering listeners placement flexibility, each Quintet satellite speaker offers a keyhole mount and a ΒΌ-inch 20-threaded inserts for maximum mounting flexibility. The center channel features dual keyhole inserts.

Now available in a satin and brushed black finish, the Quintet retails for $549.99.
