You may not be going to outer space any time soon, but Magnepan thinks it can give you an experience close to that with their newest release, the Little Ribbon Speaker. Magnepan announced the flat panel speaker's release with their first promotional video, parodying 2001: A Space Odyssey and framing the LRS as an otherworldly experience. The LRS is now available through the company and its dealers.
Here's some additional info from Magnepan:
The video was created for Magnepan by long-time Magneplanar speaker fan and award-winning Director Joe ("Mama") Mason, whose directing work includes House of Cards, Blue Man Group, and other work seen on Amazon Prime Video. Mr. Mason worked in conjunction with Magnepan Marketing Manager Wendell Diller, who ensured the brand and product were represented accurately throughout the video.
"This was a fantastic opportunity for me to create something for a speaker brand I have long admired," said Director Joe Mason. "Of course, it was a natural pairing to match an iconic film with an equally iconic speaker brand." Wendell Diller, Magnepan Marketing Manager agreed. "I have been marketing Magneplanars for 47 years. This video captures the 'Otherworld' experience that so typifies the reaction of consumers to first hearing the music they love from a flat panel," said Wendell.
