Harman just announced a complete new series of Revel architectural loudspeakers at CEDIA 2010. The new line features 21 models available for installation.
All of the new models feature a new mounting mechanism that is designed to create a tool-less installation. The new models also carry Revel's driver technology, including the low-distortion motor structures, cast frames, and tweeter designs from the design team of Revel's Ultima Salon2.

Also, announced was the presence of new DriveCore technology in the new Lexicon DD-8 multi-room amplifer. DriveCore is an advanced silicon-based technology that was developed in conjunction with Texas Instruments to deliver more power while using less energy and rack space.
The DD-8 features eight 125-watt channels in a one-unit chassis without a fan and complies with the new half-watt stand-by power consumption standards. Harman claims that the new DD-8 consumes less power while in use than most products do while in stand-by mode. Apparently, feedback and protection circuits have been integrated into the silicon for allegedly fast and accurate response.
The new mult-roon amplifier comes standard with Phoenix speaker connections and flexible configuration options. This includes four local inputs, a bus input/output and selectable Mono to Stereo output, as well as independent output level adjustment for each channel and selectable triggers.
