Boston Acoustics, Inc., manufacturer of loudspeakers, will showcase its recently introduced line of loudspeakers, Vista, at CEDIA 2008 (Booth #104). The four Vista models are the VS 336 3-Way Triple 6-1/2" Floorstanding Loudspeaker (MAP: $1,699.99), VS 325C 3-Way Dual 5-1/4" Center Channel (MAP: $899.99), VS 240 2-Way 4-1/4" Bookshelf (MAP: $399.99), and VPS 210 10" Class-D 500-watt High-Powered Subwoofer (MAP: $1,699.99). Several Vista Series models are currently available at selected independent stores across the country, with the initial four models in the Series all scheduled for rollout availability by the end of summer. In addition to the initial four models, two additional Vista loudspeakers, the VS 224 2-Way Dual 4 ½" LCR and VS 260 2-Way 6 ½" Bookshelf, are scheduled for market introduction this fall, both with MAPs of $699.99 each.
Vista features black piano lacquer finish cabinets and high-gloss end panels, in a choice of high-gloss layered cherry or matching black lacquer. The structural elements of the cabinets are made of high-frequency-molded MDF with "wave like" curved surfaces. The cabinets also incorporate internal bracing, and are voiced to allow for the use of various models in any configuration or combination.
Boston Acoustics Sr. Vice President & General Manager Eli Harary, noted: "In creating our flagship Vista range, we literally went back to the drawing board to re-imagine the potential of a true premium-quality loudspeaker, both in terms of extraordinary audio performance and visual elegance. Without question, the resulting products are our best performing and best looking ever. These four models offer our discriminating customers an opportunity to enjoy the very best in audio quality, whether for music or home theater, while adding sophistication and style to the décor of any room in their home."
In the Vista Series, a variety of sonic technologies work together.
• Exclusive New Super Wide Bandwidth (SWB) Tweeters featuring a Coupled Dual Concentric Diaphragm (CDCD) - At high frequencies (i.e. above 10-12 kHz) the center of a traditional dome-shaped diaphragm gradually decouples, moving out of phase with the remaining structure and causing cancellation of higher frequencies and a loss of radiating surface area. By terminating the center of the diaphragm to a brass plug, the CDCD continues to work more like a piston -lowering the "noise floor." The result is a low frequency resonance point that allows for lower crossover points.
• New Organic Composite Cone Material (OCCM) for Mid-Range & Woofers - The OCCM cones featured in all Vista woofers and midrange drivers, were developed for the purpose of maintaining rigidity with minimal sacrifice to sensitivity. This new composite cone uses a mix of select natural fibers.
Rear-firing acoustically tuned ports in Vista Loudspeaker models provide bass extension, and the OCCM Passive Radiator used on the VPS-210 Subwoofer enhances low frequency extension in a compact enclosure. All models feature five-way gold-plated binding posts.
